"Destroy what destroys you."

Why is drug abuse such a common thing?

What is nicotine?

"Nicotine is a nitrogen-containing chemical - an alkaloid, which is made by several types of plants, including the tobacco plant. Nicotine is also produced synthetically." Nicotine is really addictive and hard to stop using it.

Nicotiana Tabacum is the type of nicotine that is found in Tobacco plants and the nightshade family. The nightshade family consists of Red peppers, eggplants, tomatoes and potatoes.

What does nicotine do to your body?

When we inhale cigarette smoke, the body immediately to the nicotine in the smoke. It causes short-term increase in blood pressure, heart rate, and blood flow from the heart. Nicotine also causes arteries to narrow. The carbon monoxide reduces the amount of oxygen blood can carry.

how much does it cost on average for drugs per year?

The average heroin addict spends from around $25,000 - $51,000 a year. on the streets, a tenth of a gram is fifteen to 20 dollars. For crack on the streets is 80 to 100 dollars for a gram. With the amount drug addicts smoke, is insane. i am suprised many survive for as long as some do.
