    Particular variations in a cluster of nicotinic receptor genes (CHRNA5–CHRNA3–CHRNB4) contribute to nicotine dependence and a pattern of heavy smoking. Moreover, a study of more than 1,000 smokers reported in a 2012 The American Journal of Psychiatry paper found that people with the risk genes don’t quit easily on their own whereas those lacking the risk genes are more likely to kick the habit without medications.
    Very interesting.

    Whenever the "denormalisation" argument is raised, what I actually see are people trying to prevent the public from seeing how much money was wasted on trying to denormalise smoking.

    They're frightened that ecigs will prove to be more effective in only a few years than what the public health sector has tried to do in decades.

    Yep. Which is why I'm now a little suss about new studies, and just what hardware they look to use.
