My own personal opinion is that there is more than just the addictive powers of nicotine which entice an individual to smoke.
In my own case, I would agree with vesperae, there is a complex psychological input to the reasons I smoke. These include "the look", sending out a clear mesage to others amongst others. So, mere addiction is not the whole answer. perhaps I have a psychological as well as a physical addiction to the act of smoking. Sari
