    There are two ways to describe why you get a head rush from smoking fags, but both lead to the same answer.
    Not enough Oxygen getting to the brain. This is not as bad as it sounds as it is only one or two pumps of the heart and the dead brain cells probably only number in the hundreds of thousands.

    wise men talk because they have somthing to say, fools talk because they have to say somthing.
