Why Is It Easier For Men To Quit Smoking? — ‘The Why’

Welcome to the newest edition of The Why.  “Why is it easier for men to quit smoking?” you ask?  Good question. Timely too. (Besides, it beats answering the question: “Why does my boyfriend keep a cigar in the same drawer as his condoms and stuff?” Seriously? So how old are you again? Do you remember a gal named Lewinsky? And no, she wasn’t some unknown talent until Kanye West found her.)

Your chronic chronicler found it quite easy to not only control his cigarette smoking but he also found it easy to quit. It always seemed odd to him that his lady-friends who smoked had such a hard time kicking the habit. In fact, a few are still smoking. (Feel free to insert your choice of ‘smokin’’/sexual innuendo joke here. It’s late as this goes to press, mmmkay?)

According to a new functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) study published in Psychiatry Journal,   it easier for men to quit smoking because women have periods and men don’t. The study reveals that gals looking to quit smoking have a harder time than guys especially if they are hoping to begin the process following menstruation.

Researchers studied the end results of 34 guys and gals who wanted to quit but also smoked more than 15 cigarettes each day. Adrianna Mendrek of the University of Montreal stated: “Our data reveal that uncontrollable urges to smoke are stronger at the beginning of the follicular phase that begins after menstruation.  Hormonal decreases of estrogen and progesterone possibly deepen the withdrawal syndrome and increase activity of neural circuits associated with craving.”

The investigative team learned that women craved nicotine the most when they were on their periods. Therefore, while men can try to quit smoking any time women have a smaller window of opportunity due to their monthly visitor. This is also supported by prior research reported on in The Science Reporter that proved that female rodents were addicted more quickly to nicotine and they would also work harder to get their dose than male mice meaning sex hormones are involved with addiction. (Of course the “think tank” missed the most important conclusion: Don’t even try to get your woman to quit smoking if she’s on her period! In fact, it might be a good idea not to try anything. Just be happy you don’t have to deal with it directly.)
