Comment: Smoker's high? Really? I'm missing out. (Score 1) 119

by Madame Sosostris (#7825839) Attached to: Human Trials Of Anti-Smoking Vaccine Begin
I don't know about anyone else, but I don't really get "high" off cigarettes. I get a little woozy off the first one of the morning, but it's not a pleasant feeling. Subsequent cigarettes have no real effect (and I only smoke ten a day). They don't make me more alert, or keep me awake.

It might be that there is an effect, one so subtle as to escape my notice, but if it's that subtle I doubt it factors greatly in my addiction.

If they could invent a drug that would stop me from feeling like Spike Spiegel every time I lit up, maybe they'd have a chance...
