Also, if you were to grow you own tobacco would you get addicted since ain't nicotine what get's you addicted?
Sounds really childish but I'm seriously wondering.
But to what degree, I couldn't say.
I heard a good method is to couple the nicotine patches with the "habit"...take something like a straw cut in half. Whenever you have the urge to smoke, or whenever you are supposed to apply the patch, add the straw and pretend it is a cigarette.
as for if its bad for you or not, it depends on how often you smoke, and how long you have been smoking. contrary to popular belief, smoking can have benefits. the human lungs are covered in a layer of mucus that traps pollutants like dust and carcinogens...so if you smoke, you're lungs naturally heal themselves, but only to a certain extent, prolonged habitual smoking can and will have adverse effects on you lungs. on the other hand, if you were to smoke regularly for a year, then quit, approximately 6 months after you quit, your lungs would have healed completely and you would have a greater lung capacity than an average person.
yay for random information.
