Nicotine receptors play a role in the pathways in the brain that are involved with stress responses and anxiety. Nicotine also increases blood pressure and heart rate which will ramp up the symptoms of anxiety in the long term.

Sugar;
It’s nothing new, excess simple sugar consumption is bad! The roller coaster of high blood sugar levels and dopamine release to insulin spikes and low blood sugar levels strengthens the theory that heavy sugar consumption is linked to an ever growing number of anxiety disorders.
