Thread Name: BS: Nicotine vaccination may cure addiction
Subject: RE: BS: Nicotine vaccination may cure addiction
There are, in my experience, two classes of smokers. One group is _primarily_ addicted to the chemistry and the other -primarily-addicted to the behaviours. I can chew gum for stress and I don't care about the behavioral triggers like smoking when on the phone or at bus stops. But I HATE not having the stimulation of nicotine. My wife can do just fione without the nicotine except she wants a cigarette whenever the phone rings or when she takes a work break, or when dining with friends.

Different makeup for different folks. In my experience women tend to be more centered on the behaviors and men on the chemistry, but I haven't done the metrics.
