17) Tobacco lies the smoker that mental activity is fast and accurate, mental functions achieve their full potential and creativity reaches its maximum only accompanied by tobacco. These are just false impressions poured by nicotine directly into the smoker’s mind and belong to the addiction class of :”you need me, tobacco more than air”, “you can not think, you can not reason, you can not focus, you can not learn, you can not work, you can not create without me, tobacco”, “you can nothing, you mean nothing and you are nothing without me, tobacco”, “Me, tobacco, I’m everything for you, I am everything that matters”.
Such false nicotine impressions are allowed to appear into smoker’s mind and to be taken seriously as true assertions because nicotine interferes and modifies very important neural circuits of the brain. If some essential knowledge of neurophysiology – ignored by most people – were taken into consideration, all tobacco lies about the mental activity would be exposed immediately:
All neurons – the noble cells that form the brain – function very well only in the presence of normal-high concentrations of oxygen and glucose.
Tobacco-addicts dislike glucose and have low-normal levels of it in their blood. Because of the smoke inhaled there is more carbon monoxide and carbon dioxide than normal and less oxygen than necessary in the smoker’s blood. It is obvious that smokers feed their neurons insufficiently for their well-being. And it is just a lie to pretend that on long term the brain works better under the whip of tobacco and without being properly nourished.
Actually the smoker does not even dream how rich his/ her creativity would be and what extraordinary levels of performance could his/ her brain achieve without the impeding, wicked liar called tobacco.
