Nicotine "Most Addictive Substance"
"Nicotine is the most addictive substance known on this planet," Dr. Reichert said. "It is more addictive than heroin or cocaine, it's more addictive than caffeine, it's more addictive than anything." Reichert is lead author of a new study that finds smokers succeed more often at quitting if they combine behavioral changes with group support and pharmacological aids, than if they try to quit by will power alone.
