When people smoke cigarettes, it uses up lots of Niacin, Vitamin B3 in the body, as well as other substances.  If a person wishes to stop smoking cold turkey and they don’t supplement with Vitamin B3, they usually will end up putting on weight.  Niacin is one of the enrichments in white bread and carbs.

In addition to a Niacin B3 deficiency, it is said that each cigarette smoked burns up 25 mg of Vitamin C, B vitamins and trace amounts of Methionine, Cysteine.​​​
