So all the time I see anti-drug war people quote the fact that nicotine is as addictive as heroin. I have even seen plenty of citations by prominent researchers in addiction making this claim.
My quesiton is are they all fucking high?!?!
Maybe its just me and the people I know but everyone who does H seems to have cravings to do more even if they don't really like it. While people seem to be able to smoke cigarretes occasionally without any cravings whatsoever.
Also as far as I can tell the reason nicotine is judged as addictive as heroin is that they have similar numbers for succesfull quiting. This seems to completly ignore the fact that cigarettes are a socially accepted drug that you can bum off a stranger in the street while even meth fiends (stupidly) won't touch heroin. So the heroin user is countinuing to use against considerable social and legal pressure. This has to count for something.
Do other people have similar experience with heroin vs. nicotine?
