    More Than Just Smoke
    Cigarettes contain over 7,000 chemicals, one of which is nicotine. Nicotine alters the levels of dopamine and noradrenaline in the brain, making smokers feel satisfied and less anxious. This is why smoking becomes addictive. Unfortunately, the other chemicals, many of which are carcinogenic, do a significant amount of damage to the body, and so it is no surprise that many smokers want to stop smoking. From lung disease to strokes and limb amputations, smoking can leave you with a very poor quality of life.
