> It's worth noting that tobacco SMOKE contains other psychologically active chemicals, notably harmaline alkaloids, which are MAOI antidepressants. This may partly account for the limited success of NRT (nicotine replacement therapy) in quitting smoking.

That is interesting to me. I had wondered why I had so much trouble quitting smoking when I was as liberal as I cared to be with all my nicotine replacement therapies. I thought that there must be something different - something even more addictive than nicotine, even, in the smoking delivery method, particularly.

Alkaloids, you say?
