Nicotine is highly addictive. Smoke containing nicotine is inhaled into the lungs, and the nicotine reaches your brain in just six seconds.
While not as serious as heroin addiction, addiction to nicotine also poses very seriously health risks in the long run.
History
               Traveling back to 5500 BC, there was the phenomenon of healing smoke and was also the starting of smoking. The starting was commonly blind belief or what others (I don’t know). The belief was that the smoking of tobacco makes people in contact with the spirit world and slowly and gradually that believe becomes a habit. In past people use to in heal smokes of burning tobacco in a structure like pot (i think :)). With the development of the world comes the development of structure and converted to a small piece of cigarettes. Though the smoke is smoke, only structure changes don’t bring change in the form of nicotine.

Generation to generation
                 It began to flow from one generation to another. As all the generations learn from their parents, this also goes flowing. Without any doubt, all the new upcoming generation flow in habits of what they have seen. And this leads to the situation that we all know what we are facing at present.
