Smoking helps in excretion, truth or myth?
When I used to smoke regularly I couldn't go to the loo without a lit stick! Now that I have quit smoking, but still I do not face any problems! What are your experiences?
I am not a doctor. However, in my opinion, smoking helps nothing.
What does excretion mean to you? Excrete--
: to separate and eliminate or discharge (waste) from the blood, tissues, or organs or from the active protoplasm.
As far as defecation, fiber helps with that.
I'm still a smoker although finally coming off the weed by using electronic cigs. As much as I enjoy having a cigarette - away from everyone else - smoking doesn't do anything for you. I honestly don't know of any research that suggests that smoking is good for bowel habits. Perhaps it's just coincidence or have you changed your diet since stopping? It's an interesting question though and if other folks have had the same experience as you then perhaps there is something in it.
As nicotine is a stimulant there is some truth in the fact it does stimulate bowel movement ( as can caffeine) but this is a purely habitual link. A good number of smokers experience temporary constipation, but it will soon (sic) pass!
As smoking is highly addictive- quitting can cause irritability, constipation, poor sleep, irritant cough - but these are all temporary problems and overall the improvement to health and longevity far, far outweigh the minor, transient inconveniences.
I have found a site about smoking saying that smoking help brain power, memory improvement in rats. In 1998 Edward Levin said that nicotine-like compounds can actually help restore the ability to learn and remember in rats that have brain lesions similar to those found in Alzheimer's disease patients.

There are also tests have been made stating that smokers do not get Parkinson.

Which is more important, love or truth?It seems sometimes there are situations in which telling the truth and acting lovingly are in conflict. Which do you think is most important? Is it it always the same?
