I want to tell you of an experience I had last week when I attended the showing of the film, ADDICTION, INC… which tells about a guy-a scientist-who worked for one of the cigarette companies thirty years or so in the past.
Experimenting with the addictiveness of nicotine, he was the first to discover that if he mixed nicotine with an additive- which I cannot name-the addictiveness of nicotine was increased enormously.
…Now, who was he doing this testing on? Rats! That’s right: Rats have a similar brain in certain ways to humans-so that when rats were given doses of nicotine and this other additive, their response was quite dramatic; and it was awesome to observe it.
These rats stimulated themselves by pressing a buzzer hun dreds of times per day. By pressing these buzzers a flow of nicotine was targeted right to their brains. They in a sense became nothing but smoke junkies ขายบุหรี่ไฟฟ้า.
It was from this phenomenon that one cigarette firm learned how to increase the addictiveness of nicotine many fold more times than it had been before this.
And all of this information was “whistle-blown” as proof-twenty years ago-to contradict all the heads of firms who falsely testified to Congress: “Cigarettes are really not addictive.”
…So…what I felt-after I’d viewed the film’s ending-was: ‘My God! That was twenty years past; and people still do not understand how they have been patsies in the hands of firms producing cigarettes?
Don’t people know the facts? They are suckers for nicotine. And when folks talk about the right to have a choice-if they want to keep on smoking-don’t they realize that they really have no choice?
They are like rats, so addicted that they can only keep on pressing the buzzer.’
So I say to all you smokers: ‘You are being played for nothing but big suckers. You have got to abstain from smokes. You are nothing but a slave to this cruel habit.
Picture a rat being taken for a ride as it gets its dose of nicotine-then craves much more and keeps pressing on and on and on-time after time-yet helpless.
