Lung detox home remedy: A person can remain alive for a few days without eating food or drinking water, but cannot even stay for a few minutes without breathing. Our heart beats more than 1 lakh times in 1 day, and an ordinary person's lungs breathe 20,000 to 30,000 times in 1 day. In this way, our heart and lungs are the essential organ functioning continuously in our body. But smoking is very harmful to both our heart and lungs, and it also has an evil effect on our skin hair and brain.


Nicotine and its tolerance

Nicotine is found in tobacco and cigarettes. The distinctive feature of this nicotine is that our brain and body gradually increase its endurance, that is when a person starts smoking cigarettes, then our brain's and the body's ability to withstand it increases. The mind adapts to it so much that what satisfaction a cigarette used to give earlier, slowly turns into 2,3, 4 and 5. After this, nicotine completely takes its place in the blood of our body. Then this habit of ours changes into our need.

Nicotine side-effects

As the amount of nicotine in the body decreases slightly, our body starts giving us a signal to smoke cigarettes. And slowly, we start smoking more cigarettes than we ever thought possible. The contaminated blood starts affecting other parts of our body as well. Gradually our skin starts to deteriorate, and irritability increases with taking more tension. Long-term smoking also has an evil effect on the sexual power of men and the fertility of women. And due to lack of appetite, the body starts getting nutritional deficiency, thereby weakening our immune system ultimately.

In such a situation, it is essential to cultivate the habit of taking a deep breath. Breathing profoundly acts as an exercise for our lungs. It also brings out the accumulated dirt in the lungs and increases the amount of oxygen in the body.
