Nicotine is a colorless, odorless, poisonous, organic-based alkaloid in the same family as coc aine, morphine, quinine and strychnine. Although coc aine and heroin both produce powerfully intoxicating illegal highs, governments, experts and studies are now telling us that neither is as "addictive" as nicotine. The one year success rate for those who go through heroin withdrawal is about 20%, whereas with nicotine itís only 5 to 10%. Except for the type of high experienced and that fact that our stimulant is legal, we truly are drug addicts, just as much as the addicts that fill jails and prisons across the land. Remember this, in 1998 tobacco killed 25 times more Americans than all illegal drugs combined (418,690 to 16,926 - CDC).
