I disagree with Wiki on the pleasure and positive reinforccement effects of smoking happening only in the early stages of smoking. I've been smoking for a lil bit more than 10 years, and I still get positive feelings of smoking.
Smoking is "Alive with Pleasure!" for ALL smokers. Not just new smokers in adolescence. Smoking MUST be pleasurable for all smokers when I see girls who look like they 10 years old and I see em holding Newport cigs in their hands.
Oh, did I say I saw PRE-teens smoking before? Darn right I did. You might be surprised on what kids do if you lived within "our" (Blacks) community And trust me, kids in my area will do more than just smoke cigs. *wink*.
Even I know nicotine ain't addictive. If it was, then black smokers in themselves would be smoking more than just Newports. Sheet, you would think Newports are the only cig brand out here if you lived around "us."
But it IS true lots of black smokers won't smoke non-menthols and otha menthols. I used to be dat way myself when I was younga. "I'll smoke only Newports for cigs." And if nicotine was addictive, I'd be smoking ANY cig brand I could find back then.
And even now, the only non-menthols I'll smoke at all are the ones I tried before and liked. Like I hate Camels all the way. But Camels still have nic in em. Maybe I hate these regs in particular cause of the way they taste. Camels could have 3 mg of nic per cig, but I ain't putting one of those in my brown mouth EVER AGAIN!
The news said before a cig with nothang but nic in it wouldn't be addictive at all. It's the otha chemicals in Big Tobacco cigs dat makes em addictive.
