Every time a person smokes, he or she is inhaling more than 4,000 different chemicals. One of the most toxic chemicals in cigarettes is nicotine, which is highly addictive and has many adverse effects on the human body. The pleasure-inducing nicotine spikes serotonin and dopamine levels in the brain, making an instant "feel-good" feeling that can quickly become addictive. Nicotine increases the production of adrenaline, raises blood pressure and heart rate and negatively affects the metabolic rate. Even certain hormones are compromised by the intake of nicotine. The addiction of nicotine can be difficult to kick, but with the help of Balanced Life Institute, we can provide you with the tools you need to stop the habit once and for all.
