    Tobacco is some kind of "devil weed," only good for making chemical-laden products like cigarettes, known to promote cancer. At least, that's the current take on this plant. But that's certainly not the whole truth about tobacco, which has been used historically by many cultures both in religious rituals and also as a natural therapy for various ailments from colds to tuberculosis.

    New study: nicotine dramatically improves and normalizes failing memory in elders

    ;):blush::blink::):ohmy:






    So why aren't these benefits derived from tobacco widely known? The reason, as Mike Adams covered in a previous NaturalNews report (http://www.naturalnews.com/032795_tobacco_warning_labels.html) is simple: the FDA and mainstream medical doctors continue to equate the dangers of smoking chemically-laced "processed" cigarettes with anything that has to do with natural tobacco and the potentially health-building compounds it contains.

    Very interesting and surprising. Always wondered why pre-20th Century American Indians smoked tobacco - it wasn't laced with chemicals to get you hooked and the tobacco plants were without toxic chemicals and fertilizers - organic tobacco.

    I choose to use nicotine, even though I am no longer addicted to it.
    And I have made a conscious decision that I am not ever going to stop using it.

    All things in moderation.
    And that includes nicotine.

    Nicotine is physically addicting. There are withdrawal symptoms for at least 48 hours after that it is mostly psychological. I chewed nicotine only in Nicorette for ten years. I tried to quit. The first 48 hours were a definite problem physically alright and after three months I started to chew Nicorette again just like I had before but the need was from anxiety caused by certain very tough stresses not physical. Nicotine is an addicting substance and if you use it you are physically addicted at that time 48 hours or so after

    Not even remotely close.

    Remind me tomorrow and I'll go find the information from where that BS originally came from.
    It's just another of the many lies they tell to keep us where they want us.

    I'm sure it is somewhat addicting, but not as much as most people think...
    Nicotine - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    The talk about how addictive nicotine is comes from looking at smoking behavior, not vaping behavior.

    Electronic cigarettes are the first product that allows you to look at nicotine addiction...
    --Without needing to factor in the behavioral components of the act of smoking
    --Without the smoke, and all the additives they put in to make it more addictive

    There is tons of anecdotal evidence right here on these forums that many people are finding it easy to reduce or eliminate nicotine intake.

    SMOKING = Highly addictive
    NICOTINE = Maybe not so much


    As for me, I don't even vape until about mid-afternoon most days now.
    And when I was smoking I used to have to have a cigarette the minute I woke up or I would kill someone.

    And I have gone days without using any nicotine, and just didn't even care.

    Not only am I not addicted to nicotine anymore, but there are a lot of people here that aren't.
    And many of them don't even realize it.

    I've read a number of stories about people who accidentally left out the nicotine in their DIY juices and didn't even notice.

    Having said all that, I do believe that some people are more susceptible to nicotine addiction.
    But even then, the strength of that addiction is usually nowhere near what they want you to believe it is.

    Yeah I don't believe the whole nicotine is the must addicting drug either. I mean how many times have you heard of money robbing and stealing for a pack of cigs? Loosing their homes etc.
