Smoking Cessation Would Be Beneficial For the Recovery of Alcoholics

Researchers conducted a new study and found that smoking makes it harder for a person to recover after alcohol consumption. //

Dieter Meyerhoff, professor of radiology at the University of California, San Francisco said that smoking interferes with the brain’s ability to recover from the effects of chronic alcohol abuse.

After one month of alcohol consumption researchers found that the recovering alcoholics who smoked showed much less improvement in brain function and brain health than those who did not smoke.

Hence alcoholics better brain recovery depends upon the early abstinence of smoking. The study was published in the journal Alcoholism: Clinical and Experimental Research. Researchers experimented and analyzed the brain activity of 25 recovering alcoholics of which 14 are smokers and 11 are nonsmokers.

The researchers used spectroscopic imaging to measure the two markers of brain cell function and health. It was found that after a month of abstinence from alcohol, significant increases were found in both markers of brain function and health.

On the other hand they found that a decrease in some of the indicators of brain cell health and function that deal with sensory processing and manipulating objects in case of those who smoked.

Other parameters of the brain function such as learning and memory, attention and concentration, and overall processing speed was also taken into account. But researchers say that further study is needed to confirm these results.
