  • Whats in a Cigarette

  • NicotineAddictive chemical derived from tobacco plant.Alters neurotransmitters(dopamine & noradrenaline) in brain.Causes nicotine hit/rush/buzz. Craving can happen 15mins after smoking last cigarette.A stimulant, raises blood pressure & constricts blood vessels.Increases metabolism slightly.Gives temporary pleasure feeling.Withdrawal causes craving, irritability & restlessness.

  • Stop smoking treatmentsNicotine Replacement Therapies (NRT) prescription or voucher schemePatch, gum, lozenge, nasal spray, quickmist, strips.

    Varenicline Tartrate (Champix) - prescription only. Reduces craving for a cigarette by blocking nicotine receptors. Causes low level of dopamine release, thus reducing the need to smoke.

    Buproprion (Zyban) - prescription only.Reduces craving for a cigarette by reducing the rate of dopamine re-uptake, thus reducing the need to smoke.

  • Secondhand SmokeIt is smoke exhaled (mainstream smoke) and smoke from the lit cigarette end (sidestream smoke).More than 80% is invisible & odourless.Dangerous to anyone. Children more vulnerable as they breathe more rapidly and have less developed lungs, airways & immune systems.Children breathing in other people's cigarette smoke results in 300,000 GP visits and 9,500 hospital admissions for children every year.
