They did so to get to the nicotine.
- Nicotine is a colorless, odorless, organic-based alkaloid in the same family as cocaine, morphine.
- It is a super toxin and a natural insecticide that was sold in the U.S. as Black Leaf 40.
- The lethal dose needed to kill a 160 pound human is 2-3 drops or about 60mg.
- Drop for drop it is more deadly than strychnine (75mg), diamond back rattlesnake venom (100mg), arsenic (200mg) or cyanide (500mg).
- Imagine 1mg of nicotine, the average amount delivered into the bloodstream by smoking just one cigarette, being sufficient to kill the largest rat you have ever seen (1-2 lbs.).
- Is it any wonder that a recent study suggests that nicotine gradually destroys brain gray matter?
Except for the fact that , the type of high experienced and the fact that nicotine is legal, smokers are truly drug addicts, just as much as the addicts that fill jails and prisons across the world.
To break free from smoking, you don’t need mountains of will power. It takes following only simple rule - JUST ONE DAY AT A TIME , no nicotine in any form, Never Take another Puff, Dip, or Chew or patch of anything that’s got NICOTINE!
Thats what iam doing now - one day at a time, once again - recording my 3rd attempt to quit - Day 4 - Last Smoke on 12th June, 2008 at 8 PM.
