That's just propaganda spread by the tobacco companies. Nicotine is not that addictive at all. What, you get a few and ever fewer fleeting cravings per day for a few weeks? Does not compare to quitting heroin; 'flu-like symptoms, diarrhoea, nausea, headache, worse, you know the drill.

I know the drill from my brother in law, yep.
I, for myself, tried opium a few times when i was young but the turn almost bored me to death. I reacted very differently to it than my friends and it was easy quitting it (or not continuing, to be precise).
Well, after quitting smoking, i had the idea of getting a smoke, from many times per day to occasionally over the course of years. Whenever i was weak (or drunk) enough, i gave in and couldn't stop it afterwards (again). I needed several tries to grasp that it is addiction, not just a habit. The withdrawal symptoms are barely recognizable BUT psychologically, it's a different beast, imo.
When i realized the uselessness of smoking, i was finally able to smoke for a night and successfully stop again, a few times a year. The feeling of stupidity when smoking, like when you call up that girl you know you shouldn't ever get intimate with again, was the main reason to break my psychological addiction of tobacco. Not that i didn't suffer from these thoughts to smoke again soon afterwards, but the uselessness factor made it very easy to withstand.
Don't know about pure nicotine, but i guess it's easier to get away from it than from tobacco with its dozens or hundreds of secret additives.

Every time a block is mined, a certain amount of BTC (called the subsidy) is created out of thin air and given to the miner. The subsidy halves every four years and will reach 0 in about 130 years.

Yeah benzos are pretty heavy stuff. Good luck, Mr Man.

Quitting fags was a piece of cake, was annoyed I wasn't even cranky. What a waste of time.

Me and some of my friends have been able to quit smoking cold turkey. For me, it was a financial decision. Better health was just a bonus. Or maybe it was the other way around. They decided to raise taxes on it, so ... prices would also go up.

I knew another friend, who quit for a year, because he kept a promise to himself. The next year he want back to smoking, because he already fulfilled his promise. I don't know if he still smokes now or not.

Yeah, i considered smoking the biggest waste of my life, in contrast to all those substances i was taking. The health boost was great, too.

On WO topic: I think i'm seeing things in my SOMA charts that i don't like. I hope the next two days btc keeps going sideways or up. Sober now, btw.  Grin

TBH, it's quite easy to do when off on vacation and enjoying life with a special someone. Didn't once check the price while we were out, recently. Was too busy having fun to GAF.

Now, touching back down in Dallas and loading up Bitcoinity brought a tear to my eye, I'll tell you hwat.

Actually I was just trying to raise a smile. I don't really care about the price at all. I just hang around and try to keep up cos you guys seem fairly nice most of you. But I will say 8 grand for a bitcoin is ridiculously cheap when you consider its full potential. It's just a waiting game between now and then.

Nicotine is more or less like caffeine. If you can't drink your usual cup of coffee or tea, you may get a headache and be a little grumpy. After a while these "withdrawal symptoms" will disappear. What makes cigarette withdrawal so difficult is definitely contained in the thousands of additives found in cigarettes today. One of them might be monoamine oxidase inhibitors, I do not know if they are naturally present in tobacco, but if someone responds to them and want to stop smoking, it could make it very difficult.

Interesting.
If so, shouldn't taking L-Tyrosine help quitting cigarettes for these MAO responders?

EDIT: ...or help stopping to start smoking again, to be more precise.

No, the air itself would have to be over 378K for that to happen. You would have to enter that room in a special heat resistant suit.
As to curing quickly, not sure how that would affect the taste.
210 degree celsius is just a few above 100K from THC vaporization temperature, so it would affect potency as well.
I'd say 18 deg. celsius with constant air blowing, around 50% humidity, no UV light. About two weeks. Quality, taste, crispiness of buds.
I never touched any drugs, btw. *cough* *cough*

I may or have not undergone some abject failures at experimentation with creating crude concentrates, utilizing Everclear as a solvent agent... but I digress... The recipe I was following called for decarbing plant at 165F (previously, incorrectly specified 165C) for 30 minutes. YMMV it seems.

Anyway, can't wait for things to go legal so I can spend the rest of my life on this planet earning a green thumb, and live happily ever after.

As for my hmming and hawwing about any moves shaving off from my stash to settle Rick's neurosis bleeding into my life, I'm still trying to stick firm with my gut of not touching my stash until 2022 for a small sale to fund our ranch & farm business.

Thank you folks, for beating some reason back into me, even via PMs, while venting my lameass first-world problems of wanting to do something @ $10k.

Rick just needs to learn to chill the fuck out, and I need to work on having a firmer pimp-hand.

Edit: Even thanks to JJG, who I have on ignore, but read and considered his points.

Glad to hear you found a little peace of mind. Where you're at, I guess a few thousands can't make that big of a difference. However, getting stressed over having missed out or acted too quickly etc. can really prick the hardest testicles, including titanium-trained balls.

I already quit chart-watching...well, almost..I watch WO instead.

That said, is there something to watch?
