nicotine is a 'highly addictive narcotic drug'
in the same poisons schedule category
as is heroin..
nicotine is also a 'supertoxin' in the same
category as are strychnine, arsenic etc..
often the hardest nut to crack in any
field of endeavour is asking the right
in this case, the question is not as to
which form of nicotine to be addicted to
rather, do i really want to be a
narcotic drug addict[?]
do i want to take a 'supertoxin'
half hourly every waking hour
of every day of my life..
this is not a matter of morality
or what i or anyone thinks is
right or wrong, in personal
behaviour.. rather it is
a matter of rational
if nicotine addiction was an elephant
then riding without a helmet
would be a mouse..
this is not about your right to
choose to not wear a helmet,
rather what you would choose
to do, when understanding the
realities involved, and capable
of making such decisions..
i quit smoking at 21 after 10 yrs..
having made the decision, to stop,
not,, to think about it or to quit
next week etc, it was easy..
took about 10 days, after which
i seriously couldnt understand
why i could have kept on
taking the 5hit, every day
havnt had a cigarette since..
the idea of it, or of any other form
of nicotinn addiction, is so alien
as to be ridiculous verging on
'fall over laughing' ridiculous..
if i can do it, anyone can..
