We all know cigarettes are bad for you and nicotine further makes hypertension issues and damaged lungs. But, even after you stop smoking, the damages might linger for a long time.
When you inhale, 10 seconds after the nicotine , all is seeped in the skin and mucus layers in the nose, mouth and lung paths. Then through the blood, toxins travel to the brain.
The nicotine also causes insulin sensitivity and speeds up metabolic syndrome, heart problems and diabetes 2.
Also thyroid gets impacted by nicotine and pituitary work too. The adrenal and sex hormones also get damaged and lowered.
