Nicotine, an addictive drug or a magic pill to quit smoking?

If I tell you today that nicotine in cigarettes is good for your health, would you still believe it?Nicotine, a notorious poison that is synonymous with tobacco.Cancer, heart disease, black lungs, yellow teeth, thick and smelly phlegm, what else can you think of that is related to nicotine?But you are wrong.The World Health Organization does not classify nicotine as a carcinogen.Moreover, the US FDA has concluded that there is no direct causal relationship between nicotine and cancer.Second, nicotine is not to blame for heart disease.In 1998, 35 clinical studies showed no evidence of cardiovascular disease caused by nicotine intake.A 2004 study found that nicotine has little effect on causing coronary heart disease.It wasn't until 2012 that a study found that using nicotine to quit smoking did not increase the risk of heart disease in patients with existing heart disease.
So the question is, why does smoking cause cancer and heart disease?In fact, the cause of cancer and heart disease is not nicotine, but the carcinogenic chemicals, toxic gases, and toxic metals left over from smoking.These are the culprits of cancer.
So is nicotine innocent?No, swallowing the nicotine solution of just 5 cigarettes can kill a child.The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services has concluded that nicotine is addictive.Then why doesn't anyone get into trouble after smoking five cigarettes?Because when you smoke, only one tenth of the nicotine can be absorbed by the human body.Nicotine also stays in the body for a very short time and is quickly metabolized in just 2-3 hours.Therefore, few people experience symptoms of nicotine poisoning under normal smoking conditions.Unless someone smokes 60 cigarettes in a short period of time.
In fact, nicotine can effectively help people quit smoking.Michael Russell, the father of modern smoking cessation, once said, "People smoke for the nicotine, but die from the tar."The main purpose of quitting smoking is not to quit nicotine, but to quit the toxic substances in tobacco.But the biggest difficulty in quitting smoking is the withdrawal reaction caused by the sudden interruption of nicotine when we quit smoking.People will feel very uncomfortable, and ultimately fail to quit smoking.Therefore, when quitting smoking, if we use a nicotine patch to slowly release nicotine into the blood.At this time, our withdrawal reaction can be greatly alleviated, and our success rate in quitting smoking can be greatly increased.Therefore, since 1996, the World Health Organization has recommended nicotine replacement therapy to all countries.If you frequently fail to quit smoking and do not want to use smoking cessation drugs, it is recommended to try nicotine patches, e-cigarettes, etc. to help quit smoking.This attempt is reasonable and scientific.Even if nicotine is the devil that tempts you into darkness, it is also the angel that leads you out of darkness.
