@gravois - I am right there with you. I don't feel like I have a monkey on my back, I feel like I have a whale on my back. But this article got me thinking. Would it be possible to somehow treat the nicotonic receptors so that they did not respond to nicotine as well as they do naturally?
I am not a doctor and was always pretty bad at science so I am definitely not the person to investigate this issue. But if we have a special part of our bodies that responds to nicotine, maybe its possible to just turn it off. If I had a smoke and didn't get any buzz that would probably be the last cigarette I ever smoked.
