Here are some of the benefits of nicotine, and why some of the other products can help, not harm, people who are trying to quit smoking. Nicotine is the natural alkaloid in the tobacco plant that is naturally produced when a smoker inhales tobacco smoke. The alkaloid is called nicotine, the chemical by which it acts. Nicotine stimulates the pleasure center in the brain called the nucleus accumbens. Nicotine also relaxes the nerves that control the respiratory system. Nicotine stimulates the appetite and lowers the blood sugar. All these things are good for you and good for the brain. The question is: what's the best way to use these products?
The amount of nicotine you use depends on several factors, including your weight, your age, and the state of your body. According to the National Institutes of Health, smokers usually need about 6 to 10 mg of nicotine per day. The nicotine is taken from tobacco, which has been smoked or absorbed through the lips. Nicotine has many health benefits, but most smokers get the nicotine from cigarettes, not from chewing or snuff. Most people who use cigarettes also smoke, but there are people who can't quit and need nicotine to quit smoking.
