evidence provided by scientific studies suggest that there are different connections between nicotine and depression. a group of researchers have established a possible link between youth nicotine use and adult depression, a phenomenon that can occur from exposure not yet fully developed youth brain of chemicals found in nicotine. paradoxically, suggests another study that because of its ability to stimulate brain neurotransmitters, nicotinic be useful in the treatment of adult depression. Furthermore, there is a recognized link between the withdrawal from nicotine and depression, which is likely rooted in both physical and psychological effects of nicotine cessation.
however, suggests a small study from 2006 that nicotine can actually be useful in treating depression in adults. In this study, half of a group of non -breathing people who suffer from depression nicotine patch, while the other half had a placebo patch. after eight days, the individuals who had been wearing the nicotine patch reported that their depression symptoms had lessened in severity. It is believed that this effect may arise from nicotine tends to stimulate the release of ‘Feel- good’ neurotransmitters such as serotonin in the brain. researchers involved with this study does not take into use of harmful nicotine -bearing tobacco products, but is optimistic about the possibility of developing a pharmaceutical drug that insulates depression-relieving properties of nicotine.
Finally, there is a long recognized link between withdrawal from nicotine and depression. depression arising from tobacco cessation is likely due to both decreased neurotransmitter activity and by the psychological effects of quitting a habit that many tobacco users associate with pleasure, comfort and tranquility. This link between nicotine and depression can last only until an individual adapts to life without tobacco. in rare cases, however, a former nicotine use need continuous professional support for dealing with depression.
