Some More Vulnerable to Smoking Addiction Than Others: Research: TUESDAY.

When you provide people nicotine for the first time, most people don’t like it. It’s not the same as many other addictive medicines, for which most people say they benefit from the initial experience and would try it again, said study author Roland Griffiths, a professor of psychiatry and behavioral sciences at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medication in Baltimore. In a university news release, he said the study suggests there are definitely some individuals who are nicotine avoiders and other people who are nicotine choosers, and there are most likely metabolic or genetic vulnerabilities that make people fall into one group or the other.Garg, M.D., Ph.D., Reitze N.
