"Smoking increases Anxiety" - Dr Grace Eze

After Bella Shmurda spoke about suffering from acute anxiety due to his constant ingestion of weed, Legit.ng talked to a medical professional, Dr Grace Eze Imagueziege.

She confirmed that weed and cigarette smoking can cause increase anxiety and tension even when there is no need for it in an adult. Dr Grace said:

"Some people smoke as ‘self-medication’ to ease feelings of stress. However, research has shown that smoking actually increases anxiety and tension. Nicotine creates an immediate sense of relaxation, so people smoke in the belief it reduces stress and anxiety. This feeling is temporary and soon gives way to withdrawal symptoms and increased cravings."
