Why is smoking addictive?

Cigarettes contain over 7,000 chemical compounds many of which are carcinogenic in nature. The main component nicotine alters the balance of 2 chemicals called dopamine and noradrenaline in the brain. When nicotine changes the levels of these chemicals, it changes your mood and gives you a feeling of satisfaction and reduces anxiety and stress. This is why many smokers enjoy the nicotine rush and become addicted to it.
