Re: Nicotine fights fear, anxiety, PTSD
You don't get addicted to nicotine...

you get addicted to the chemicals that are ADDED TO nicotine in the production of cigarettes...


If you grew and picked your own tobacco, and rolled your own cigarettes

you would get the benefits of nicotine without the addiction


I'm not a smoker by the way.

Tobacco smoking produces widespread dominant brain wave alpha frequency increases
After the subjects smoked a favorite tobacco cigarette there was a significant generalized increase in dominant alpha EEG frequencies in most scalp recording sites. This study demonstrates that tobacco smoking produces widespread bilateral neocortical increases in dominant alpha EEG frequencies consistent with the stimulant effects of nicotine on the brainstem reticular activating system.

Smoking tobacco has a similar effect with meditation in regarding the alpha brainwaves. Smoking prevents people to become mentally agitated and zombielike.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 29791602


In 1994, Foulds and colleagues[2] reported on a small study that compared the effects of subcutaneous nicotine injections versus placebo (saline) on EEG alpha brainwave frequency in non-smokers. Using a counter-balanced double-blind crossover experimental design, two 0.6 mg doses of nicotine or placebo were administered 40 min apart. These researchers found that the nicotine injection produced an increase in dominant alpha frequency compared with the saline-treated subjects. The researchers reported “The increase in dominant alpha frequency found in non-smokers in this study was similar to that following nicotine inhalation in abstinent smokers in previous studies, and suggests that this is a primary effect of nicotine.”

From this research it appears as though the stress reducing effects of smoking tobacco is primarily due to nicotine induced dominant alpha brainwaves.

Indeed!

The first metabolite of nicotine, unimaginatively titled cotinine, was a prescription antidepressant until the 1960's.
