First, congratulations! If you’ve decided to quit, you are one step closer to healthy living. But if you’ve decided to use nicotine tablets, you’ll want to heed this warning. There are new dissolvable nicotine tablets on the market that are touted to be a substitute for smoking. These tablets are quite flavorful, such as with cinnamon or mint. But they may be so appealing that they are easy for children to get their hands on, creating some serious risks.
Researchers at the Harvard School of Public Health have determined that a one year old who eats ten tablets of nicotine will suffer severe neurological damage. The study results appeared in the journal Pediatrics and was supported by the Food and Drug Administration as well as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
Nicotine is a powerful addiction. It is a stimulant and a relaxant that works by going from the lungs to the brain within seven seconds and transmits messages which prompt an increased release of several chemical agents. These increases enhance concentration, alertness, and arousal, while reducing anxiety and stress. These unnatural benefits may be why the American Heart Association has denounced nicotine addiction indicating it is one of the hardest habits to break, as difficult as heroin and cocaine. So, it’s no surprise if you’ve tried nicotine tablets.
More and more people have found ways to quit smoking because of motivating factors. People prefer clean air in their homes and outdoors. They don’t like the smell of smoke stained clothing or a car that makes them feel like they are suffocating from embers. They do not want tobacco stained teeth. Too, they don’t want to offend others with second hand smoke that has proven to be harmful to others. According to a report from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, just over 20% of people in the U.S. smoke cigarettes. And there are good reasons to kick the habit, including;
• Lung Cancer
• Heart Diseases
• High Blood Pressure
• Bad Breath
• Gum Disease
• Infertility for men and women
• Thyroid Disease
• Bone and Joint Disorders
It’s great that you want to kick the habit, but it’s important to know the risks associated with using medications to reduce nicotine urges.
