there is nothing wrong with tobacco. it has been used as medicine for thousands of years since the beginning of time. it is only when you take that natural medicine that the natives called it, and turn it into somthing like on steroids. i heard they enhance the nicotine 30x or somthing. awhile ago they gave a list of the chemicals added to the cigarettes and it was 599. that is alot of stuff to add. i almost think they found a loophole which allows them to add somthing phychoactive to there cigarettes, because whenever i have one i get wierd. but since i started pipe tobacco which is all natural without additives, they will flavor the leaves when it is growing to get a taste to it, but that is all. i have noticed i am no longer addicted to tobacco but only smoke pipe tobacco because i enjoy it and it helps my mental state and also helps my digestion and sleep. my theory is that it is alot like the drug chantix where you are allowed to smoke all you want for the first week on chantix and then stop smoking. well with pipe tobacco you can smoke all you want for 1-2 or 3 weeks and then stop because the addiction will be gone i think it has somthing to do with changing your nicotine recptors to a better form of nicotine that is not so modified.

Some people don't do well with the pg blends. From what I've found the vg tends to not only be smoother but its much more natural and there isn't any formaldehyde. Also another thing is changing the coils often. I try to do mine weekly which keeps the wick fresh and coils clean from any corrosion. Those 2 things will help a ton.

i can honestly say pipe tobacco is no where near addictive as cigarettes i dont need one when i wake up or every 1/2 hour. so my advice is if you are trapped and a slave to cigarettes, give pipe tobacco a try it is way better. you can smoke pipe tobacco for a few weeks as much as you want then you will realize you are no longer addicted and you can actually stop smoking now if you want.
But you didn't say I quit smoking tobacco, period. Just switching to another form of nicotine isn't 'quitting'.
Let me know when you really try and find out how insidious nicotine addiction really is...
yea its bad but i know ecactly what the op is talking about.. ever try to use nicorette or a cigar cigarello or vape pen with nicotine??
none of that will "do the trick"
