Chewing and Smoking Tobacco

HOW IT AFFECTS YOUR HEALTH AND BODY

RISKS FROM USING TOBACCO

Blood Will Thicken.

Your blood will thicken after a certain amount of time that you smoke.


You are at a higher risk to get a blood clot.

When you use tobacco in any way, your blood will thicken and since your blood vessels are only for use of your normal blood type, the blood will clot unexpectedly or when you bleed from a cut.


Increase Your Chances of Getting a Stroke.

Again, since your blood thickens from tobacco, clots will form and eventually will cut off blood flow to your brain. Strokes are one of the leading causes of death for teens and adults in the United States.


Why is it difficult to stop using tobacco?

Nicotine

It's a liquid that is commonly used in tobacco. It's extremely easy to get addicted to and once you're addicted to it, it's difficult to stop. Nicotine also reduces the action of autonomic nerve and skeletal muscle cells.


Users Become Dependent on Tobacco

They become

emotionally and physically dependent on tobacco, that makes it difficult for tobacco users to quit. It’s even harder on people who are depressed, because at times tobacco can be used as a depressant. The nicotine will replace unpleasant feelings and/or thoughts with pleasant ones, making the user want more. That’s why tobacco is difficult to stop using.
