    Hey everyone,

    just found an amazing piece based on the last 40 years worth of research.

    Very ironic but smoking or inhaling nicotine can improve your brain by 30% it states that those who have nicotine can work longer and have better focus generally!

    Don't start smoking if you don't already though! :p

    Well, it's still bad for your lungs and overall health, so it's probably not worth it :mmm:

    I once read online that g*y butt sex was the leading cause of global warming. Doesn't make it true!

    Take everything you read online with a pinch of salt :D

    It's been over a year since I stopped smoking due to health problems. That kind of post makes me want to start again.

    I sometimes use Nicotine gum as opposed to caffeine and I must say it is a great stimulant especially when your dragging! Also it makes you less "jittery" than caffeine....

    Yeah that's very true! the study is very interesting, but NOT a promotion for tobacco, just interesting to see that nicotine is a brain stimulant, if you read further it says that whilst improving brain performance, when having withdrawals you are actually worse off so a decrease of 50% is possible! so there you go either full time or not at all!

    Yeah there are many ways to get it into the system! hehe e-cigarettes being my chosen choice, I did read somewhere that caffeine is more dangerous than nicotine I know nicotine in its pure form is a poision but I wonder how true that statement is, if true my stimulent will always be nicotine!

    I hear smoking Ice is a bit stimulating as well !!

    Seriously tho I wish I could quit and have something that gives me the same dose as ciggies or more without the health problems. Tried the E cigs, Crap !! no where near strong enough to match 16's , been smoking for 25 years and I'm only 36 . Smoking does indeed stimulate the brain at work, but the time I waste standing outside work, smoking and talking shit with mates cancels any productivity out .

    Yeah thats a big downside, especially in the work place, e cigs work if you get the right one, hit me up if you need any advice or help with it, even if just replacing the ciggies at work its a better option than going out for a cig, there's 5 of us in the office puffing away all day now and we don't need to go outside!l

    Well it's only logical that nicotine does that. It stimulates the responsible cell receptors. Amphetamines perform even better so if that was a deciding factor, nicotine should be banned as a time waster and meth distributed to kindergartens. I just don't see the reason for a 'study' when all this is mentioned in every pharmacology book since at least the 1930s.

    So far so good but the thing is that the body is not stupid. To compensate for the increased concentration of external stimulants, it either increases the number of receptors that need to be activated OR decreases the released amount of internal stimulants for the same effect to occur. So I need to smoke more and more to get the same feeling. Same with coffee, same with meth and same with any other crap.

    It gets to a point that a smoker needs to smoke in order to function as well as a non-smoker. If that smoker inhales a little deeper than usual, then yeah, he will outperform the non-smoker. But his brain will again add a tad more receptors so the occasional deeper inhalation will have to become a regular one. This trend never stops and that is why any addict needs constant dosage increases. With smoking there is a practical limit, one can smoke only so much in a day. With heroin, well, some hardcore fans can reach 3 gram daily dosage needs before finally moving to the endless poppy fields.

    I love my nicotine, and as everyone said, these days you can get it without the harmful side-effects of smoking.

    I still smoke though. :p

    I think it is true base on my experience. Nicotine through cigarette makes me feel relax when I am already stressed out and help me to work longer. Just add some coffee or cola and you will feel refreshed.

    If you don't smoke already take the chewing gum,its safer and alot cheaper. Its only $24 for basically a carton worth of nicotine,compared to $45 or more for a carton.

    You can say anything you want and it wont make a bit of difference to me. I know for a fact that I have a much better concentration level while smoking then without. I have quit twice and each time for over a year. Without smoking I feel stupid, I have a hard time accomplishing my goals, I wander around in my head thinking all over the place. But while I smoke, I'm razor sharp on my goals, and my path to my goals. I have a hard time getting anything done while not smoking. So say what you want but I know better, for me anyways.

    "Researchers at Queen Mary, University of London found that therapy with nicotine gum for people who want to quit smoking significantly increases the risk of oral cancer.

    In oral cancer is involved a specific gene mutation and exposure to nicotine products will amplify the negative effects caused by it, say scientists.

    Most products that have anti-smoking labels says that those who use them have to lower the intake after three months and not take them at all after six months."

    I translated it from a news article in my country.

    Well that's curious. Have you had that condition tested? It may very well be that there is some physiological problem which may be more safely adressed with prescription amphetamines like adderall or some analogue compound like ritalin. They are far safer than smoking and far more potent as specifically overloading on adderall will let a healthy non-addicted person pass pretty much any test with just 2 days of studying. Something which no amount of nicotine can achieve.

    Nicotine may help you work better,but it is bad for your blood vessels.If you guys want a good drug that will increase mental performance and allow you to work,then try to get Provogil legally. Its really hard to get in the U.S.,but in the U.K. its super easy,I think all you need to do is request a sample from the makers and they will send you one.
