It is no doubt that the traditional tobacco smoking has significant negative impacts on individual smokers and society, and should be banned. However, to some smokers, life seems not worth living without smoking. It is apparent that tobacco smoking delivers special something which can’t be obtained from anywhere else.
That special something is nicotine, a stimulant, which causes the body to release pleasurable chemicals, such as, acetylcholine, dopamine, endorphins, enkephalins, epinephrine, norepinephrine, and serotonin etc. These chemicals generate high effects in human body, which is the true reason why people like tobacco smoking.
Smokers are fortunately to have numerous alternatives to enjoy the healthy magic nicotine, and avoid the thousand toxins and carcinogens from combustible tobacco. It is possible to create nicotine effect or supply nicotine in the following formula:
- Natural Methods, such as acupressure, cognitive behavioral therapy and hypnosis
- Semi-Natural Methods, such as acupuncture and herb
- Nicotine Supplement Products, such as nicotine patch, nicotine gum and nicotine lozenge
- Alternative Smokes, such as smokeless tobacco and electronic cigarette
Therefore, we suggest to rebrand smoking into two classes, one is toxic brand and the other is non-toxic brand. The traditional tobacco smoking creates huge amount of toxic substances and should be avoided. Most of nicotine replacement products are relatively safe, and they are better choices for smokers. Rebranding smoking as toxic and non-toxic brands and broadcasting knowledge on the brands, we wish that smokers make right choice and enjoy the stimulating gift from nature.
All the best,
