This brainwashing is on TV constantly.
This proposed need for continued dependence is what makes people believe they can't quit smoking unless they remain addicted to nicotine.
They don't tell you that the psychological urge to smoke and the mere years of repetition drive the urge to smoke as much as nicotine. They don't tell you that once you are off the nicotine you can unlearn the cues and urges to smoke by unlearning that repetition.
These ads imply nicotine is going to satisfy the whole enchilada of quitting smoking.
DON'T BELIEVE IT! They are just in it to keep taking your money.
