Female smoking – myths and legends of harmful cigarettes
The most common myth is that smoking helps to maintain a slim figure. It is not true. Look around, there are a lot of fat girls and women who smoke, and it is unlikely that a cigarette will help them lose those extra pounds. On the contrary, they still need to add gastritis and gastric ulcer. This myth is followed by the following – smoking calms the nerves and saves from stress.
In fact, all the substances contained in tobacco do not relax, but simply inhibit certain parts of the central nervous system that are responsible for the nervous state of a person. After getting used to a cigarette, it is difficult to relax on your own. It turns out a vicious circle.
According to Olga Vikhireva, a researcher at the State Research Center for Preventive Medicine of the Ministry of Health and Social Development of Russia, stress in various situations can be caused by elementary nicotine starvation, and not excitement. First, nicotine increases the secretion of serotin, which decreases the activity of brain cells, and this leads to a feeling of peace. But after smoking, the opposite process occurs. Ligth cigarettes are not as harmful as ordinary cigarettes – this is the third myth. The degree of “light” is determined by a special device. But a man does everything in his own way and he should not be equated with a machine. For the necessary portion of nicotine, a smoking girl involuntarily increases the depth of puffs of “light” cigarettes. According to research, smoking such cigarettes increases the likelihood of a heart attack by 2 times.
