not related to food, and that's why, as some people think, some extra
cigarette during fasting will not have significant effect. Actually,
it is a very dangerous mistake.
influences on our body considerably. The first cigarette leads to general
weakness, dizziness, and even vomiting very often. And this is not
surprising, as tobacco smoke contains more than 4,000 chemical species, some
of which conduce to carcinogenesis.
let me point out the tobacco smoke composition:
solid components - about 10% of smoke. They include various resins,
and nicotine as well;
gases and vapors - the remained 90%. The basic gas is carbon monoxide
(CO). In large weight percentage there are formaldehyde, acrolein, ammonia,
nitrogen oxides, pyridine, hydrocyanic acid (cyanide), monochloroethylene,
ventox, and also some hundreds of toxicants including nicotine, cyanide,
arsenic, formaldehyde, carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide, hydrocyanic acid,
smoke there are radioactive nuclides: polonium, lead, bismuth. A pack of
cigarettes per day is about 500 roentgens of radiation per a year.
temperature of smoldering cigarette is 700-900 C! After the tobacco smoke
reaches lungs nicotine percolates brain in 7 seconds.
later the body gets used to the impact of all these harmful substances and
the smoker does not react so much to the tobacco smoke components.
fasting the body overresponds to harmful substances inflow, and especially
to carbon monoxide. Maybe, this influence may be not so noticeable during
first days of fasting period but with the fasting period increase the smoker
can have such symptoms as dizziness, weakness, nausea, vomiting. The most
dangerous smoking is after 5-7 days of fasting. On this time the body
completely transits to internal nutrition, and smoking during this period
may lead to arterial blood pressure fall following heart failure
progression, and also faint, convulsions, and even death due to
cerebrum hypoxia .
smoking during fasting is strictly forbidden. In clinics practicing fasting
for healing patients seen smoking are discharged right then.
On the other
hand, if desired, fasting for healing can help you to leave off smoking. In
several days of fasting craving for smoking abates, and by 7-10 day
disappears completely. And at that abstinence symptoms are not so apparent.
Everyone who begins fasting
should remember the following:
- smoking during fasting
can be dangerous not only for your health but for your life;
- the most harmful
smoking is after acidotic crisis - 5-7 days of fasting;
- fasting helps to
get rid of a pernicious habit of smoking.
like to mention if you can't put by cigarettes you'd better not to use
fasting as a healing method.
