I would be very careful doing this. You are basically creating nicotine poison.
Sixty milligrams of nicotine, the amount in about five cigarettes or half a cigar, has the potential to kill an adult who is not a smoker if all of the nicotine were absorbed. This figure is ~120mg in chronic cigarette smokers, smoking an average of 20 non-light cigarettes delivering ~1.7mg of nicotine each daily. One cigarette's-worth of nicotine is enough to make a toddler severely ill. In some cases children have become poisoned by topical medicinal creams which contain nicotine.
So, if you try this method, be very careful.

It's not the nicotine. It's the freaking chemicals that the tobacco companies added.
It's not the tobacco. It's the chemicals.
When a noxious stimulus (punishment) is presented immediately after a specific behavioral response, the response is eventually inhibited and extinguished. There are many types of noxious stimuli: electric shocks, substances that induce vomiting, corporal punishment, and social disapproval. The negative stimulus is paired with the behavior, which is thereby suppressed. The unwanted behavior usually disappears after a series of such sequences.
Aversion therapy has been used for alcoholism, paraphilias, and other behaviors with impulsive or compulsive qualities.

you should think about giving my method a try.
the reason it works so well, is that creates an involuntarynegative reaction to tobacco, where as every other method forces to consciously quit. And thats why its so easy using my method.
Nor should anyone on here with no apparent intelligence be advocating that others be risking their lives by doing this either.
