    You're wrong. Apart from the addiction, nicotine isn't worse than cafein. It's even good for memory (ask any honest specialist)

    Besides, nicotine tablets are just a stage before stopping.
    It's not a question of weakness, it's a question of chemistry. When your body is used to it, if you deprive it suddenly, you'll have to compensate (sugar, nervous acts,...)

    It is worse than caffein, and it has many adverse effects e.g accelerates tumor growth among others (ask any honest specialists or do some searching on your own)

    I know many smokers who have "quit" smoking with assistance of nicotine products. They all are still addicted to nicotine. Some of them eat nicotine tablets and some of them have returned to tobacco due it's cheaper price.

    If you can't fight the symptoms(sugar, nervous acts,...) without drug, it signals that you don't have enough will power, so your mind is too weak to give up the addiction.

    I was intense smoker about 6 years(at least 20 cigarettes per day)

    1) Apart from heart effect, I've never been told of other bad effects of nicotine. Anyway I trust you...I add only that walking in the streets (cf cars and dioxins) and eating hamburgers lead you to cemetery too
    2) If you don't have any addiction in life I congratulate you Mr Vercetti, you're a strong man

    I stopped (cold turkey) a few weeks ago after 15 years. I´ve posted an interesting link with an article about smoking, see what you think.

    PS:

    I like this link..
    I think when all the 'Quit Smoking' campaigns/trend fades out,..it will come around complete face..and it will be advised for troubled & obese folk to actually take up the habit...he he... The masses are controlled by trends, health scares & fads. (Why are people so fat these days?.... ...Humans have a natural tendency to do things with their hands & mouths.....Most people have a habit directed at these two functions/actions. Perhaps a couple of cigarettes would be more healthier than eating half a cake with 6 cups of coffee or Coca Cola... for example.)..

    I sound like I am still promoting smoking....but I know I should stop. (or perhaps I just brain-washed by todays stance on the matter?.... Still making excuses for my habit..he he he)
    My boyfriend hasn't smoked for 5 days now...he just stopped cold turkey. I couldn't believe it at first...then envious, then admiration. I have given myself a 3 day dead line. Then thats it. (famous last words)...

    I just quit cold turkey.

    I tried before substituting ciggarettes with beer, Chewing gum, Food, it doesent work. if you have the will power to stop you will, if you have not, then you will die.

    The fittest will survive the test of willpower

    I was pretty seasoned smoker when I tried Ettan first(and last) time, it almost knocked me out It contains so much more nicotine and it absorbs into the blood much faster than tobacco

    That snus is disgusting stuff, it would put you off nicotene forever, I remeber I was drunk one night in the Biker bar and I ate a big block of the stuff and it was like acid burning through my cheek, and that was even after drinking whiskey all day the pain and the taste was terrible.
