The Field Of Meens (dopamines)...Nicotine Receptors...& Dopamine

Blog Post created by jonescarp.aka.dale.Jan_2007 on Jan 22, 2011

Non smokers don't have active nicotine receptors in their brains.

We're special. We were able to grow a whole field of them and keep it watered with every puff.

We are so special that when it needs "watering" we have a tad more than a desire to do it.

So when that movie seems half over, or that dinner out is nearly done, or any number of other things that last

over an hour come our way? Its just easier to not make plans because we know the garden will need tending.

Fughet about plane rides. Too long without without smoking.

Society's trying to eliminate where we can get our watering done. Damn them anyway.

Our bodies know as long as there's nicotine, there's dopamine.

And isn't that what we all want?  To feel good at all costs even if we don't fit in?

I didn't know about these nicotine receptors until about 4 months into my quit while I was on another site.

It really dissappointed me. I felt like "what's the use"?

About 4 months later I learned   they have a lifespan and begin to die off when we don't "water" them.

It's our choice to garden or not to garden.
