"I Smoke To Control My Overeating"


So why do you have this urge to keep eating all the time, it’s not normal to find yourself always reaching for food even when you’re not hungry, why would a smoker have this constant urge?

If you're a smoker, nicotine could be the culprit behind your constant cravings.

Our brain releases it’s own stimulants and when smoking , nicotine causes the brain to be overstimulated which affects your appetite.

Nicotine is a powerful stimulant that can suppress your appetite, but only temporarily. Once the nicotine starts to wear off, you may find yourself feeling hungry, even if you've just eaten.

This artificial hunger is a side effect of smoking that many people don't realize, leading them to reach for another cigarette in an attempt to curb their appetite.

Many smokers mistakenly believe that smoking can help them lose weight because it curbs their appetite, but in reality, it's the nicotine that's throwing off their brain's chemical balance and causing them to feel hungry in the first place.

That leads to smokers chain smoke all the day every day to overcome this constant hunger feeling.

The solution? Quitting nicotine altogether. By doing so, you allow your brain to restore its chemical balance and your appetite to return to normal.
