Im 20 yrs old and ive been smoking for 5 yrs (3 yrs heavy). Needless to say, im addicted.
i have aryhethmia and probabl generalized anxiety. Ive heard that cigarettes can create or worsen anxiety and cause various heart problems, but i don't know which heart problems they can cause. My questio is: can cigarettes be causing, or heavily contributing to these heart palpitations that have been getting worse and worse with me recently? my heart will flutter and my breathing seems a little off.
Also, how much can cigarettes really contribute to anxiety? Of course dr.s will say that quiting cigarettes reduces anxiety, but i also know that they'll say just about anything to get you to quit. Has anyone out there experienced a significant reduction of heart palpitations an an aliviation of anxiety following their cessation of cigs???
Someone please respond. Im definitley trying to quit anyway, but i need to know if i can attribute any, or all, of these symtoms to cig smoking.
