Nicotine Addictive Effects Emerge As Powerful As Cocaine and Heroin

Date: 30 th April 2007

It is no longer a secret that the addiction of nicotine is potent like cocaine and heroin and the validity of this fact has been strengthened by a 618-page report prepared on May 17, 1988, 19 years ago by Surgeon General C. Edward Coop that emphasized that cigarette addiction is potent like cocaine and heroine. The report by Surgeon General C. Edward Coop further concludes that the behavioral and pharmacological processes that led to the determination of tobacco addiction are very similar to the processes that determine the addiction to heroin and cocaine.

The powerful effects of nicotine addiction can be gauged from the story of Henry W. "Chuck" Richardson; a man who was earlier addicted to heroin, gave it up but consequently fell in the grip of cigarette addiction. It is indeed astonishing that Henry W. "Chuck" Richardson successfully got rid of heroin addiction after taking the drug on a continuous basis for 23 years, but when it came to bid goodbye to the addiction of cigarettes the Marine machine gunner with two Purple Hearts and the Vietnamese Cross of Gallantry pathetically failed.

Regarding his nicotine addiction, Richardson makes it clear that even though there is no rewarding feeling in cigarette smoking, on account of the desire to inhale cigarettes, he has been unable to leave the urge for nicotine.

According to Robert Robertson, a medical doctor and former associate director of the Office of Minority Health at the Centers for Disease Control in Atlanta , the black community in the US even find it more difficult to quit smoking for the lack of smoking cessation programs and various other reasons.
