Script Details

custom demo required  
Cigarettes contain a powerful addictive chemical called nicotine. When a smoker takes a puff of a cigarette, nicotine is inhaled.

The nicotine enters the lungs and from there, the blood stream, which pumps the nicotine throughout the body.

Within 10 seconds, nicotine reaches the brain.

In the brain, nicotine attaches to nicotine receptors, like a lock and a key. This causes the release of dopamine, a chemical that makes you feel good.

The pleasurable feeling of a cigarette lasts only a few minutes. Once the effect of nicotine is gone, the smoker often wants to smoke again.

When the brain is exposed to nicotine on a regular basis, it adapts by adding more nicotine receptors. This means a smoker has to inhale even more nicotine in order to experience the same pleasurable feeling.

When the level of nicotine is not maintained, a smoker will begin to experience feelings of withdrawal. But after quitting smoking, many of the extra nicotine receptors go away, making the urge to smoke less strong.

Keep in mind that an addiction to smoking is caused by more than just the body’s addiction to nicotine. Once the number of nicotine receptors in the brain returns to normal, some former smokers may still experience the urge to smoke. This is because smoking can also become a mental and social addiction. Learn more about the three-link chain of smoking addiction (physical, mental and social), here:
