I won't be holding my ever-shortening breath, but if the drug makers can come up with a magic pill to help those of us addicted to coffin nails, I'll be first in line to volunteer as a guinea pig:
While nicotine patches, gums, lozenges and sprays help wean smokers off cigarettes by slowly reducing their dependence on nicotine, researchers are tailoring drugs to mimic or block nicotine's chemical reactions with the body....
Researchers hope that the drug will attach to nicotine receptors in the brain, preventing overpowering cravings from setting in when someone stops smoking.
I did try Zyban, but the results were less than appealing. Seems I'm allergic, and the hives that resulted made me want to smoke even more.
