Nicotine as we know is a powerful drug. It comes in many forms and can enter the body through smoking. When Nicotine enters the body it first goes to the lungs and the bloodstream. The lungs get covered with tar and some of the nicotine travels through the bloodstream to your heart, liver and kidneys. What Nicotine does to your heart is it can create and irregular heartbeat and cause other vital organs to go haywire.
