As a part a month without tobacco scheduled every year in NovemberEntraid’s association of addicts developed a project in the west of the Eure department for its members and people who consume addictive substances associated with tobacco consumption. It offers them support in the weaning process.

Studies show that nicotine increases alcohol consumption in humans. The two related products activate several areas of the brain that make up the reward circuit and increase the sense of joy and euphoria. Nicotine also has a stimulating effect on alcohol users who are forced to smoke to find a sense of dynamism and counteract the drowsiness caused by alcohol. These two substances feed off each other and form a vicious and dangerous circle.

Public meeting

A public hearing is scheduled for Friday, October 28 in the ballroom Brionne (Eure) which will aim to inform and raise awareness of the benefits of undertaking the smoking cessation process. He will co-organize this meeting Bernard Duezpresident of Entraid’addict, as well as professionals from CSAPA (center for care, support and prevention of addictions) in Pont-Audemer and Bernay who will discuss nicotine replacement and share their knowledge of epidemiology (balance of benefits and risks).

We will answer each other’s questions and hope to convince addicts to make an appointment with a CSAPA professional closest to their home.
