This Is Nicotine
Karen Farrington (au)
Symbol of wealth & power, cosmopolitan, a metaphor for sex, an appetite suppressant for the body conscious -- is smoking really a question of informed adult choice or just a hopelessly addictive, antisocial vice? Smoking affects the non-user more than any other ‘habit’ -- just 30 minutes in the company of a chain-smoker can cause lung damage in a non-smoker, while babies born to smokers are 15 times more likely to die from crib death than the babies of non-smoking mothers, Tobacco is the only substance legally sold where, if the consumer follows the instructions for use, the end result is illness or death. So why do we smoke? What is the appeal of a product that is clearly labeled ‘I will harm you’? “An authoritative & helpful guide to nicotine addiction.” Illus.
