For example, this is disEntrainment through photo-stimulation. By sending specially calibrated flickering light through the eyes and into the brain, ROSHI In-Sight Glasses help “DisEntrain” the mind, freeing it from its unhealthy cyclical patterns. The brain attain a meditative “normalized” state in which it becomes totally at rest …yet attentive at the same time—similar to the brain of a Zen Master. It is in these “quieter” EEG moments that the brain “corrects” itself.

Curious - are these glasses available to the public? Do they aid in reaching and holding the alpha state?
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 21106518


Practioners can purchase these glasses and in some case patients who have gone through the treatment and trained on how to use them. They are primarily marketed for sports enhancement - achievement of sports peak performance.

The Specialist has put me on Singulair at night and my allergy pill in the morning and my life has finally gotten back to normal. His explanation is that my immune system is busy trying to repair 20 years worth of smoking damage so i am more susceptable to everything else.

Damage to the Insula Disrupts Addiction to Cigarette
Thread: Insula, the center of awareness threat detection
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 32424032


Granular insular cortex inactivation as a novel therapeutic strategy for nicotine addiction
The inactivation of the granular insula decreased nicotine self-administration (SA) under both fixed and progressive ratios without affecting the SA of food under the same schedules of reinforcement.
[link to www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Nicotine Receptors Found For The First Time In The Mouth Raise New Hopes For Anti-smoking Therapies
A research team in Portugal and the US has found for the first time nicotine receptors in the taste buds. In fact, although most of the toxicity of smoking is linked to other components, it is nicotine that leads to smoking addiction and until now it was believed that this substance had to migrate into the brain to bind its specific receptors and provoke its effects.
This novel pathway is also shown to activate a brain area that when damaged can lead to instant loss of smoking addiction suggesting that mouth nicotine receptors might play a key role in the whole dependence process.
In fact, it has been seen that individuals with an extreme capacity to taste bitterness are more resistant to smoke addiction, while lesions to the insula – a brain area where the gustatory cortex (brain area for the sense of taste) is localised – can radically affect smoking addiction.
If the mouth nicotine receptors are confirmed to be linked to these insula effects, blocking them can turn out to be "the" weapon against smoking.

MRI study finds that depression uncouples brain’s hate circuit
The hate circuit was first clearly identified in 2008 by UCL Professor Semir Zeki who found that a circuit which seemed to connect three regions in the brain (the superior frontal gyrus, insula and putamen) when test subjects were shown pictures of people they hated.
The new University of Warwick led research found that in significant numbers of the depressed test subjects they examined by fMRI that this hate circuit had become decoupled. Those depressed people also seemed to have experienced other significant disruptions to brain circuits associated with; risk and action, reward and emotion, and attention and memory processing. The researchers found that in the depressed subjects:
The Hate circuits were 92% per cent likely to be decoupled
The Risk/Action circuit was 92% likely to be decoupled
The Emotion/Reward circuit was 82% likely to be decoupled

You know what cures depression?

Having the dignity and forthought to put efort into your own life. Make decisions, and don't listen to the addicted EGO that wants to smoke.

It is a toxin. Simple. It may distract you from your unpleasant life, but it won't solve anything.

Maybe put the cig out and think about your life.

If your emotions are dictated from a substence, that's addiction.

Once in addiction you are no longer your self.

Once you are no longer yourself you are susceptible to ideas and information that plague your weak mind and overload your system. This creates the useless human paradigm.

Now you are not yourself, the world is too big, you are focused on the reality of your addicted ego and the cigarette, ultimately never getting anything done because your emotions and motivation are run by a rolled up tube of disease.

Take two shots of vodka in the morning, that will trigger desires and wants while blocking out the static(we are bombarded with more information than we are used to every day, it clogs are mental circuits and confuses us if we don't sort it out. Hence watching the t.v and turning the brain of is bad. All those images go into your subconcious, and you sort them out later in your dreams. Its confusing, not enlightenment btw.) and is a goodway to counter act nicotine adiction.

Harmless rant.

A genius is a genius regardless of what he puts in his body. Its a way of understanding he has discovered. Smoking simply kills him quicker and distracts him while doing so.

Most people that make breakthroughs wouldn't attribute it to smoking. Regardless if your statement was the vaguest blanket sentence to be right I have ever read.

alcohol on the other hand is healthy in small doses.

so...don't really know why you would defend a toxic substance.

Smoking in China
Looking at male smokers by occupation, 55 percent of leaders of organizations and more than 40 percent of medical health personnel are smokers.

Now that might have something to do with the prosperity from China and the bankruptcy from USA.

Re: Nicotine fights fear, anxiety, PTSD
A 2004 study conducted among 3,500 Chinese physicians found that 23% were regular smokers. There was a significant gender difference, with 41% of male physicians reporting to be smokers but only 1% of female physicians.
Male surgeons were found to smoke more than any other specialty. A study conducted among 800 Chinese male surgeons in 2004 found that 45.2% were smokers and 42.5% had smoked in front of their patients.
In Chinese culture, smoking is connected to masculine identity as a social activity that is practiced among men to promote feelings of acceptance and brotherhood, which explains why more Chinese male doctors smoke than females. Furthermore, physicians in particular may resort to tobacco as a coping mechanism to deal with the day-to-day stress that is associated with long work hours and difficult patient interactions.[33]
One surgeon in Kunming (Yunnan province) described smoking as a phenomenon that is an integral part of Chinese medical culture and one that improves job performance:
Smoking is such a big part of being a doctor here. The director of our hospital smokes. The party-secretary smokes. The chair of my department smokes. And whenever I walk into the duty office, most of my colleagues are smoking. And to tell you the truth, with such a pressure-filled job, smoking is extremely helpful, at times soothing, at times energizing, at times helping me focus my attention when preparing for a complex surgery or facing a stack of paperwork 10:30 at night.

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

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.
