I've long felt that my addiction to nicotine was due
to my own particular brain chemistry (and not, as many claim,
proof of moral laxness or of lack of will/courage), and that
I was more profoundly (i.e., neurologically) addicted than some of the
casual smokers whom I know.

Withdrawal from nicotine feels exactly like extreme
PMS (which is also associated with a steep drop in serotonin).

The notion that smoking, etc., might be forms of necessary
self-medication in certain people to correct chemical imbalances
is in fact revolutionary.

Thanks for the very interesting info.
