Okay, well basically, I want to quit smoking, I have a calendar, I ve tried for months, and it s not good. I don t have IBS, but it sure does show up when I smoke, otherwise my stomach is an iron belly, but not when I smoke. I ve been smoking for 10 years by the way, and I m 25, I started at 16 and it s been terrible ever since. I use it to get through tough loads of school work, etc., but I know I don t need it and I know that mentally I ll be sharper and get even better grades than I am now if I quit. I am trying to increase my academic potential, my mental potential, and I have a hunch that quitting smoking will help me greatly, which is why I m sending my query here. I don t want a hunch, I want to know. When I smoke, I know effects of heart rate increase, blood flow decrease, etc., but what about neurons? I feel shaky and nervous when I smoke, it affects my social life, how do cigarettes affect neuron action potentials? I am in a radiography class, so you can imagine that shaky hands aren t good when trying to take a radiograph of my own hand for practice, etc. Ultimately my question is: Do cigarettes affect neuron action potentials, do they make them misfire (i.e. shaky hands, nervousness + anxiety)?

gastro problems caused primarily by alcohol abuse which resulted in jaundice and fatty liver condition. after some recovery from juandice I had started taking proxyvon in abuse and sort of a substitute for alcohol. what bad, and how bad adverse effects can this cause on the liver, stomach, etc,. my SGOT in a recent blood test came out high at 40 and SGPT at quite high of 87. what should i do?.. would a sudden stopping of this drug abuse cause problems, I m already having a bad stomach, and also am confused whether this stomach condition and weakness is caused by this abuse or could it just be because of a lack of proper food intake and the heat, coupled by exertion ?
