Let Me Ask You a Question – 11/9/18

If nicotine is a drug and cigarettes cause nicotine addiction, then why isn’t cigarette addiction considered to be drug addiction?

  1. Actually, it is among those who propose to treat it and those who sell the patches and such to people trying to quit smoking. Like most addictions, it is profitable coming and going. But, please, let’s not consider Caffeine, no we wouldn’t want to think of that as an addiction.

  2. Nicotine is one of the most deadly substances we have, even a drop in pure form can kill someone. If discovered today, there is no way, it would be shoved into bits of paper and people could buy it legally.

    Like all drugs, when you quit it, you have massive withdrawal and spend years still craving it, I say that as I enter year 6 of quitting and still fight the urge not to mug someone when I smell smoke and see them smoking.

    However, nicotine like alcohol earns far too much money for the governments, we had a great programme called yes prime minister (it was a comedy) who took the subject of nicotine and the many reasons why it couldn’t be banned, in a very funny way, but with the underlining message that we are being screwed over by the government
