Is Nicotine Addictive?

<- This WayBack One Step


Nicotine is an alkaloid. Very few substances on the earth have such properties. An alkaloid is a chemical which behaves upon the nervous system as either a stimulant or as a sedative depending upon the direction which the system is out of balance. If the nervous system is agitative nicotine will act to soothe the agitated state. Conversely if the system were fatigued to the point of near sleep the affects of nicotine would be to stimulate the system to a point of more ready alertness. This accounts for the large body of evidence that shows greater mental and acuity skill for smokers than for non smokers.

Nicotine does not cause cancer. There is no evidence that Nicotine causes cancer. This is a fabrication of wrong information about tobacco produced by one sided slanted electronic press.

Nicotine is habituating and by bending the real definition of addiction may be found to be addictive. Nicotine constricts blood vessels and can cause circulatory problems in those who are prone to such. There is much evidence that heredity plays a large role in both circulatory diseases and cancer which is attributed to smoking. In fact there are studies which show that smoking behavior itself is influenced by heredity. Hopefully, based on these studies the heredity argument can be used to afford smokers the same special exemptions granted other minority portions of society.

Habituation is:

The repeating of an act, which by being repeated so often by an individual makes that act become automatic.

Addiction is:

The chemical dependence on a substance, or the need to commit some act so that the individual has no self control over the degree of his physical or mental habituation. (Many too many people have quit smoking to be able to call Nicotine addictive, but other chemicals in the "modern safer" cigarette surely have chemicals which are in combination with nicotine addictive.)

There are chemicals in American cigarettes which enhance the effects of organic nicotine while providing their own addictive characteristics to the smoke by allowing some of the 4000 components present in the smoke to permeate the blood - brain barrier more quickly thus making the smoke from cigarettes more addictive.

There are chemicals being added to the American cigarette which in fact do present serious health risks but they are not chemicals found in native tobacco.

As with any avalanche of lemons into one's life, survivors attempt to make lemonade and so it is with the Gatlinburlier Tobacconist. G&B Tobaccos new licensing and stature as a Tobacco Manufacturer now presents many opportunities for our loyal long-time customers. Not only does this new status make the Gatlinburlier the only truly legal tobacco retailer in the country, but it opens opportunities for us to expand our lines, since our access to specialty tobaccos has been vastly expanded. We plan to offer special deals on our new products as we produce new blends and attempt to improve some of our existing blends.

Tobacco being a natural product varies in characteristics year to year. It takes constant adjusting to keep blends consistent in taste, color, and burning qualities. In many cases blenders keep several years worth of tobaccos on hand so as to phase out one years product while phasing in another years crop to minimize the changes in the qualities of the blends. Over the 37 years that we have blended tobaccos some of our suppliers have left the business and other tobacco components have changed so much that we think we need to make adjustments to a few of our blends.

Gatlin-Burley our Americanized English once contained a very special Green River Valley tobacco which became unavailable. Given our new contacts within the industry we now have access to this rare tobacco, and have re blended this great blend, with just a touch of Latakia to meet its original qualities.

Gatlin-Burley was a blend created to keep the smoker's interest and encourage the maturation of the smoker's own tastes. Thirty-seven years ago it was our flag ship. It was an Americanized English that seemed to change taste as the smoker's pallet change over the course of one day and over the course of many weeks.

As a special short term offer we will send you a two ounce bag of this fabulous rebirth of greatness for only $5.95.

This extraordinary blend mixes fabulously with our Cades Cove Cavendish and our Chimney Smoke to make it even more tame for the American taste. For those looking to find a slightly more mature taste than is offered by our "natural aromatics" - Gatlin-Burley is the tobacco blend they are seeking, but "Made Even Better®".

2oz for only $5.95
