Why do i get dizzy when i smoke a cigarette?

..because our lungs are meant for inhaling and exchanging oxygen for CO2 (which is what we exhale).

If you inhale smoke, instead of oxygen, the exchange of gases does not occur – which means your brain receives no oxygen from your blood (because you inahled mostly smoke and not the usual amount of oxygen) and your body becomes acidotic from not being able to expire the CO2.

Essentially, you are suffocating yourself – hence the dizziness.

quite honestly the same happened to me so what i would do is maybe go to the doctors and have some blood checked because it mite be sumthin like diabetes that could cause that.

I'm sure you are tired of the stupid answers above. Why do people think that you can't read the warning on a pack of cigarettes but you can read what they type? Doesn't make much sense, does it?

Anyway, the reason you get dizzy is that you haven't built up a tolerance to the nicotine yet. To do this, smoke until you get dizzy, then stop and wait for it to wear off. Then do it again and again, smoking a little more each time. Soon you will be able to smoke a whole cigarette without getting dizzy. It should only take 4 or 5 cigarettes and 2 or 3 hours.
Good luck! And welcome to smoking!

OK, I read the first four answers and you aren't getting the real answer. The dizziness is that rush of nicotine and the release of pleasure hormones. That's the true of it. You will not continue to get dizzy as you get more accustomed to smoking, that is as your body gets used to it, but the pleasure hormones will continue and you will feel satisfaction and relaxation.

This btw is not promoting smoking, as I feel it is an individual's choice to do what they want to, but simply giving this person the information she asked for, which a judgmental attitude. After all, freedom of choice applies here.

I looked it up and here's what I found:

"The nicotine in cigarette smoke can disturb the functioning of the part of the inner ear that is responsible for balance. This is especially likely to happen in people who are not accustomed to nicotine. Many people feel dizzy the first few times they smoke cigarettes; this is due to smoking's effect on the inner ear."

thats a sign you need to stop


because it's obviously bad for your body. stop smoking
