Hi Linkadge,

Nicotine is a vasoconstrictor & raises heart rate & blood pressure. Nicotine also causes artery wall damage which leads to Arteriosclerosis. Sucking down smoke might give you cancer and emphysema, but it's nicotine that causes all sorts of vascular problems which leads to heart attacks, strokes & having gangrenous limbs cut off due to poor circulation. The leaflet that comes with the gum tells you to quit after 6 months too, you would think if nicotine was harmless that nicotine gum & patch makers would engourage you to use their product indeffinately.

Cheers,
Panda.
