Obviously, smoking hinders my arthritis pain by contributing to swelling and dehydration. Nicotine is generally considered to be a serious addiction with a negative purpose. My personal habit began many years ago. Considering there are positive results from tobacco that may be overlooked.
Life was blissfully good during the times I decided to kick the tobacco habit. When the going got tough, I craved cigarettes if the situation was feasible. Nicotine seemed to relieve the problem. Another note: Tobacco keeps me awake when I need to be alert. When I need to sleep, however, remembering to refrain can be serious.
