Could smoking cigs cause me to always have panic attacks? I never got them be-4 smoking it happens everytime I go into a store nd last until I leave

Nicotine. Is a stimulant and caused symptoms similar to anxiety/panic---rapid heart rate, shortness of breath, etc. So smoking is certainly not good for a person with anxiety. However, it is more likely that smoking tricked your brain into thinking you were anxious rather than actually causing it.
