The reason smoking is so addictive is because the nicotine reaches the brain in 7 seconds. The reason for anxiety is the body sending out signals for its next fix. So approximately 10 minutes after smoking a cigarette the body begins detoxing and the level of anxiety begins to increase - meaning the level of nicotine needed to stay in a state of perceived relaxation increases.

In addition, there have also been numerous studies of how secondhand smoke affects infants and children creating respiratory problems and asthma. Secondhand smoke also negatively affects the health of those who do not smoke. Then there is the risk to increased heart disease and of course lung damage.

Nicotine as with caffeine and even marajuana all have their medical benefits. However, it's the delivery of the drug into the system as with marajuana and nicotine that needs to be taken into account. There is no need for thousands of non-smokers to have to suffer the negative heath consequences of secondhand smoke if the drug is used in a prescription form. Nor would the negative health effects of smoking be a consideration if the drug was introduced biochemically in a different manner other then smoking.

Working in a psychiatric hospital I saw how some doctors pushed the patients into smoking for a variety of reasons. The first being to help patients with their boredom and the second to use their subsequent addiction as a means to manipulate their behavior with regard to a reward and punishment system. Smoking gave the patients something to do along with else to think about.

Are you aware that when a smoking pregnant woman gives birth - the baby is also addicted?

Smoke from cigarettes also seeps into the walls, clothing, curtains and interior of cars where children live or play. It gets all over the windows leaving a film and created all types of damage that the owners of various businesses who had allowed smoking in their establishments had to pay to be cleaned up. Then their is also the lost time at work where the smoker had to go out and get their fix that the employer was paying for too - along with the health care costs of other employees who suffered from working in a smoke filled environment.

As for the depression following withdrawal - this is a given for almost any addictive substance that someone is trying to detox from. Cognitive function was first impaired upon someone's experience of trauma. Trauma can occur in a variety of ways and the brain adapts to a new dysfunctional behavioral pattern as a means of survival. Subsequently, when an individual become emotionally or physically overwhelmed they tend to fall back to earlier coping skills that they learned in the earlier part of their life - which don't necessarily work the best as an adult.

However, there is another type of trauma (loud noises from bombs, head trauma from a variety of impacts to the skull) which actually create brain injuries/damage and is identified as another type of PTSD. And there is the type of trauma from child sex abuse that also results in PTSD. I've worked with both type of adult patients as their doctor and seen good results with PDST from a specific type of NeuroFeedback systems treatment utilizing glasses with flashing lights.

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.

The lights in ROSHI In-Sight glasses create an LED and MagStim flicker, driven by a Dynamic Vector Equilibrium algorithm, contained within the NeuroDynamic Activator. This presents the brain with a complex set of phase instructions that it must accurately follow, in order to correct its own internal phase vector errors—true linear to non-linear transformation, in real-time.
It is with this unique method that the brain performs its own neurofeedback duties, without any outside human intervention or drug stimulation.

The goal is to have a healthy body sans drugs when possible.
