I get lightheaded when I smoke. I have even gotten sick to my stomach.
I smoke ultra light cigarettes, in case that matters.
I did a google search recently about getting lightheaded....supposed to be common for people that smoke. I also read that for some the lightheadedness goes away after time.
I am curious...if smoking makes you lightheaded, why do you continue smoking? Not judging, just really curious

I can't help but ask the same thing... why do you? As a previous long-term smoker, I can say that getting lightheaded and sick to your stomach when you smoke is, unless they're adding something new to cigarettes nowadays, not "normal" or common. Maybe for a first-time smoker, but not on a regular basis. Some people can't tolerate cigarettes and get nictotine poisoining; I would say you qualify and if you're smart at all, you'd stop trying to smoke. Period.

It always made me lightheaded when I would smoke after not smoking for a long time. I haven't had a cigarette in 20 years, so I'm sure it would make me seriously lightheaded if I picked one up now.

Um it is because it is poison and robbing your body of oxygen and introducing nasty chemicals into your bloodstream. Why anyone would continue to smoke after feeling lighthead and/or nauseous makes no sense to me. But smoking period makes no sense to me.

If I smoked lightheadedness and nausea would be the least of my worries. Lung cancer and Emphysema would take precedence. Maybe this is a sign that it's time to take quitting seriously. Millions of people quit and you can, too.
I'd like to help you out. Which way did you come in?

No, I don't smoke anymore Actually, it's been years since I have smoked. I stopped b/c it made me lightheaded/sick. Figured my body couldn't handle it.
I was asking about it b/c I read that getting lightheaded is normal for some, due to the nicotine.

The *very* few times I have had a cigarette in my life, it makes me lightheaded. One of the many reasons I don't smoke.
I mentioned that to my aunt one time, she smoked for many years. She said she remembers feeling like that as a teenager when she was first smoking, but just waited until the feeling passed and lit up again.
Seriously, with ALL the reasons that smoking is bad for you, I don't know why anyone would do it. Especially if it makes you feel badly!

I'll admit... I'm a social smoker. If I'm out with friends and we're drinking, I'll smoke. And yes it does make me lightheaded and have a horrible headache the next day.
But then again, it's a social thing, which doesn't happen all that often for me. But I always want a cig if I'm drinking.
Me too. I don't care about smoking at all unless I've got some sort of drink, and then I HAVE to have one. I'd sooner not drink at all than have a drink and be unable to have even just one cigarette. It usually only makes me lightheaded for a few seconds, nicotine headrush. If I borrow a full-strength one from someone it's really a headrush. Yikes.
