Smoking is detrimental to a good night’s sleep

A recent survey conducted by Sunday revealed smoking impacts sleep adversely. Majority of smokers have difficulty sleeping and most of the time their quality of sleep is considerably poor. Also, the more the number of cigarettes inhaled the less chances of a deep sleep. All these signs are a wake-up-call to the smokers seeking help for good sleep. First and foremost they need to realize, they have to stub this nagging habit for overall well being.

Looming threat

Scientists have linked smoking of cigarettes to the onset of several diseases such as cancer, routine infections, heart disease, depression and anxiety. While these destructive health risks are the result of heavy metals and toxic chemicals consumed during smoking, nicotine - the substance that makes smoking so addictive - is often troublesome to another aspect of health: Sleep. On the body’s natural sleep routine smoking can wreak havoc, and some of that damage cannot be cured.

Smokers wake up more frequently during the night

Researchers have found that smokers sleep more lightly on a regular basis than non smokers. The non smokers experience more restorative, deep sleep. Restless sleep doesn’t allow the body to function and restore itself as well, hence subjecting the body to many a long term problems.

Smokers find it difficult to fall asleep, and wake up feeling groggy

Similar to caffeine, nicotine is both a drug and a stimulant, so if consumed in high quantities and before bedtime it can substantially affect the quality of your sleep. It can affect your natural sleep-wake cycle, leaving you feeling groggy and agitated in the morning.

Smoking increases your risk of developing sleep apnea

Smokers are more prone to developing the most common type of sleep apnea, obstructive sleep apnea, caused by the collapse of muscles during sleep in the back of the throat. More often smokers suffers from this frequent cessation of breathing because the smoke they breathe in irritates the throat and nose tissues, which results in swelling that further limits air flow.

Smoking changes your circadian rhythm

The consequences of this disruption of circadian rhythms move beyond poor sleep to include risks of developing anxiety, depression, and a range of mood disorders. It is an unfortunate cycle that calls all smokers to break free from!
