If you want to cut down or stop, you need to know why you smoke in the first place.

Many smokers believe their physically addicted to smoking, but the fact is their addicted to Nicotine and there is a subtle difference.

Nicotine provides the physical addiction, NOT smoking itself and nicotine contrary to believe is actually good for you.

Now understand this fact it's important!

We all know that smoking kills it's a medically proven fact but nicotine is NOT the killer in cigarette smoking that is some of the other 4,000 odd chemicals including:

Acetylene, cyanide, nitrogen oxide, and carbon monoxide and all these chemicals are known poisons and there some 40 chemicals contained that can cause death and disease including cancer.

Nicotine is not one of the killers. It has never been proven to cause cancer or any other disease in fact medical research is ongoing into its potential health benefits!

Nicotine is healthy?

Yes it is. Nicotine is known to affect the neuron transmitters in the brain and improve mood, attention and memory. It is therefore being researched to treat various conditions including:

Depression, Attention disorders, Alzheimer's and Parkinson's disease to name a few.

Contrary to popular believe most of consume Nicotine everyday even if we don't smoke as trace elements are contained in a number of common everyday foods including:

Vegetables including potatoes, tomatoes, bell peppers, cauliflower, eggplant, chili peppers, and even some teas.

Its part of the natural food chain and in its organic form is safe and non toxic.

So what does the above mean?

It means that smokers who suffer cold turkey and nicotine withdrawal to try and give up smoking don't need to.

There are a number of NRT Products to allow you to get a dose of nicotine without smoking and they include:

Puffers, inhalers, patches and gum.

The fact is using the above will double your chances of success.

There has been a lot of medical research into providing non smokers with nicotine for its health benefits and the first products are already hitting the market.

Nicotine in water is one such product, which was originally marketed to smokers when they couldn't or didn't wish to smoke and its now being taken by people for its potential health benefits.

If you understand the above you can see where the addiction comes from and that you can satisfy your craving and maybe even get some potential health benefits as well.

A change in attitude

Nicotine has long been seen as a killer but this is like saying because grapes are used to make wine and people die of alcohol poisoning, you shouldn't eat grapes!

The correlation is flawed just as it is with nicotine.

With huge resources being poured into research into organic nicotine and its potential health benefits, these attitudes and starting to change and nicotine is getting a long overdue image makeover.
