What is the effect of snus with alcohol? Is snus stronger than normal? Here are the answers for a responsible consumption of alcohol and snus!
Snus effect with the influence of alcohol
At parties I often see people drinking alcohol and using nicotine. Some snusers want a stronger kick from nicotine and alcohol consumption. The pouch fits snugly under the upper lip, so it is less likely to be taken out or consumed heavily, for example at a party. Some snusers even try soaking the pouches with alcohol beforehand.
In this article, I would like to explain how nicotine along with alcohol affects the body and what to consider when drinking. First of all, please note the following:
Nicotine and alcohol consumption are not without risks and should be consumed with caution. I will explain why.
How does snus work?
When using snus, take a pouch or loose snus from the can and place it under your upper lip. The saliva in your mouth moistens the product and delivers the ingredients to your brain. The effect of snus on the body unfolds in the brain. The strength of the effect depends on how much you take and the nicotine content. Some varieties have a nicotine content as low as 4 mg/g, while stronger varieties reach levels of 40 mg/g nicotine and more. Many processes are triggered when nicotine enters the brain. Nicotine suppresses certain emotions and intensifies others. The best known effect of nicotine is the increased release of dopamine. Dopamine is a neurotransmitter that activates the reward center in the brain. Therefore, it is also known as the happiness hormone. Additionally, adrenaline is released and the consumer feels energized.
At the same time, nicotine prevents negative emotions such as tension and stress. The performance enhancement of snus is one of the reasons why athletes often turn to oral tobacco products before major competitions.
What are the risks associated with consuming alcohol and snus?
Many people get tired sooner or later after drinking alcohol. Since nicotine is a stimulant, many people turn to cigarettes and snus to stay active. Snooze is also said to release dopamine, but it has not yet been scientifically proven whether taking snus with alcohol contributes to a stronger or longer-lasting sense of well-being. Nicotine and alcohol can affect the circulatory system and also cause problems for consumers.
If you want to enjoy snus with a drink, be careful with pouches and nicotine pouches as they are easy to swallow. The pouch stays under the upper lip too long, increasing the risk of swallowing. Nicotine in the stomach causes stomach pain, nausea and heartburn. In any case, swallowing the pouch should be avoided. If symptoms do not improve, a doctor should be consulted.
What effect does snus have on alcohol consumption?
The effect of snus in combination with alcohol is not without risks and should be used with caution. High doses of nicotine can have health effects such as nausea, circulatory problems and dizziness. Alcohol increases the effect on the body and can have dangerous consequences.
In addition, researchers have found that nicotine interferes with alcohol metabolism and slows it down. In addition, nicotine and alcohol produce many toxic byproducts that harm the body in the long run.
The bottom line is to consume responsibly
Snus users should use nicotine and alcohol responsibly because of the risks associated with nicotine and alcohol use. Taking too much snus with alcohol is not recommended, as it can lead to problems such as circulatory problems and nausea. In addition, snusers consume more alcohol due to the effects of nicotine, with long-term unpleasant consequences. Be careful when mixing nicotine and alcohol.
