Obviously, smoking hinders arthritis pain by causing swelling, inflammation, and dehydration. Nicotine is considered to be a serious addiction with negative consequences. My smoking habit started years ago. The smoke is fascinating to me. Vaping worked for a month or two; asthma improved tremendously. But, I got aggravated and went back to the curly smoke trails. It gave me an excuse to take a break and forget about the irritants. There are emotional benefits considering that forgetting what the problem was to begin with can be beneficial; positive emotions add up.
Life was blissful whenever I kicked the tobacco habit addiction. When the going gets tough, I crave cigarettes. Nicotine seems to relieve problems of over-thinking. Another observation: Tobacco keeps me alert. When I need to sleep, however, it’s easy to forget that sleepy, relaxing sensation.
