Is nicotine addiction as hard as heroin addic
I feel like a hard drug addict. Should I accept the fact that I am such an addict or do I have a better chance that I am a nicotine addict?
Nicotine addiction appears to be as strong as any other addiction, and like any other addiction, it can be treated. You may wish to discuss treatment options with your health care provider.
