We all know and probably believe the health risks associated with smoking tobacco. Even though, the smokers find it really difficult to quit smoking, no matter how hard they try! The nonsmokers would obviously say that the smokers never actually give a serious effort to kick the puff or there’s always a lack of will.
But now, there’s an answer to why people can’t quit smoking, easily. It has been proven through scientific research that someone’s unsuccessful attempts to stop smoking a hundred times over, reasons to the proteins in the brain.

In the new study, the American-Canadian team found that variations in alpha-3 and alpha-5 could be used to predict the number of cigarettes per day during the period of heaviest smoking. This study has also provided the strongest statistical evidence – although there is no evidence for this yet – that people with certain variations in the alpha-3 and alpha-5 genes might find it easier to quit smoking than others.
So until the pharmaceutical companies come up with the new drugs based on the study that could help quit smoking, the smokers can carry on puffing to glory, blaming it all on the brain proteins.
