The Truth About Tobacco/Nicotine and the 600+ Chemical Additives that Create the Addiction

Why Cigarettes are More Addictive than Vaping Pure Nicotine

I realized that I’ve been going through bad mental withdrawal even chain vaping with 24mg nicotine. I have given in a few times (2 cigs in 3 weeks) and the relief was incredible and I realized there must be other things I’m w/ding from so I googled some today. I mean 600 additives that haven’t been tested and aren’t put on the box and they want e-cig dealers to pay thousands to test out juices and new mods with stupid regulations that the Tobacco industry doesn’t have to? This is ridiculous, I’m starting to wonder if nicotine is anymore addictive than caffeine (on it’s own, it seems below that they convert the nicotine into freebase which might be a reason. But 600 chemicals??? Why??? The stuff has nicotine in it already and smokes great soon off the plant with zero additives!)

Please give your opinions and experiences and read the 2 articles below. I’m really upset that I’ve been deceived for so long. I knew cig’s were addictive, but I wasn’t aware of the horrible 2-3 month w/d that vaping nicotine won’t even help. And 600 chemicals that haven’t been tested and the FDA is going to make e-juice vendors pay thousands to test each flavor and e-cig device (which almost all won’t be able to afford) when it’s only a flavor, nicotine, and VG/PG??? How many chemicals am I w/ding from right now from tobacco out of the 600 additives??!! Even on Diet drinks they put that warning it contains that phen something chemical when cigarettes only mention nicotine, only 1 of the 600 and they haven’t even been tested!

How Cigarettes are More Addictive-…Addictive.html
The GRAS compounds include chocolate and cocoa, which, when burned, produce theobromine. Theobromine facilitates cigarette smoke inhalation, allowing the nicotine to reach the deepest recesses of the lungs. Cocoa also smooths the smoke.
Perhaps most insidious is what’s known as ammonia technology. Through the addition of ammonia, cigarette smoke’s pHis altered, turning the nicotine molecules into a vapor air “freebase.” This vapor nicotine is more readily absorbed into the smoker’s bloodstream and brain. The blood-brain barrier is more easily compromised, allowing for the quickest hit of nicotine.Jeffrey Wigand (a Big Tobacco whistle-blower) stated that American cigarettes contain at least 600 chemical additives. While these additives are viewed harmless in cosmetics and food; they largely have not been tested while burned and inhaled.

“For those who think of our modern cigarettes as simply some pure tobacco that’s rolled-up in paper, it’s time to reconsider. It’s far more accurate to think of cigarettes as a highly-engineered, deadly product.”

Nicotine Itself May Not be Causing the Addiction at All!–
“A large portion of the research on tobacco studies is done on nicotine. But the research has not been very reinforcing,” Killeen said. “Nicotine in itself is not very rewarding. You can go to any drugstore and buy a packet of Nicorette chewing gum.”
But people don’t overdose on Nicorette chewing gum, he said.

“Studies have shown that none of the nicotine replacement therapies — chewing gum, inhalers, patches — none of those are addictive,” he said. “Nicotine is not addictive. So what’s going on?”


Quitting Smoking – It’s a Lot Easier than You Think! (Great Book)

Allen Carr’s “Easy Way to Stop Smoking” is really good if you want to stop smoking, or really quit anything that isn’t benefiting you when will power alone just won’t cut it.

“About the Author

Allen Carr was a chain-smoker for over thirty years. In 1983, after countless miserable attempts to quit, he discovered what every smoker dreams of-an easy way to stop smoking. Today, his method is taught in over 150 cities and his books have topped bestseller lists in nine countries. Carr’s Easyway method has the highest success rate of any clinically evaluated method. An estimated ten million smokers have quit using his simple, drug-free approach.”

This book is rational and shows you that you need almost zero will power to quit.  Those who smoke have delusions that the nicotine causes and all it takes is some deep thinking on why you smoke, how it makes you feel before, and realizing how the addiction works.  After understanding some of these things it’s really amazing, the desire to smoke naturally goes away.  All the sudden the things start to taste bad, you go hours without even thinking about it.  Then you just decide which one is your last one and if you read the book well it’s an almost guarantee you will quit cold turkey.

Just from looking it up on Google/YouTube I found 2 you tube clips; both Ashton Kutcher and Ellen Degeneres quit after reading the book. (If the book doesn’t give you the motivation, just remind yourself if Ashton Kutcher can quit, anyone can :P)

I just wanted to pass this useful info onto you guys because I know it works because it worked for me, and I’ve tried quitting countless times.  I even went back one time after quitting for 2 years.  But after reading this I can’t see myself ever putting nicotine into my body again.
I’m also on a new diet and working out too; it’s really giving me energy and well-being!  I might make a post of my 2 diets; one for gaining muscle and one for cutting fat without loosing muscle.  I took some fitness classes in college and I’ve spent the past few weeks calculating all kinds of foods/diets and done hours of research finding the right ratio’s of protein fat/carbs for each one.  And I’ve been getting great results 2x the time I expected so it’s working out well.  Any restaurants want to give me free food for life if I claim I ate your food while loosing 20lbs?!
Be safe, take care of your body, and keep training that mind; and always surround yourself with laughter and happy people!
