(Daily Mail)   New study says that the stress-relieving benefits of nicotine are a myth. Oh, really? Is that so? Then how come I feel like strangling people with an extension cord when I go without nicotine?   (dailymail.co.uk) divider line 159

TheMysteriousStranger: I was under the impression that nicotine was an easy way to reduce stress immediately. But the price of using it was that you would have more stress in general unless, of course, you smoked some more.

So in general a smoker probably had less stress than most during and shorty after smoking, but otherwise had a bit more than general and a lot more if they went x time without a puff.

/And of course if you die early, your life will really have had less stress overall.


Your impression is wrong.

I and many others have already discussed it in the thread.

Ctrl+f smackledorf.

Or ya know, read the thread.
Or the article.
Or do research.
Or at least BE a smoker and have personal experience.

You say all I have is a "nuh uh" but all you have is an incorrect impression; no supporting evidence or explanation of you impression.

Hunches are garbage.

Nm you aren't mysterious stranger.

What part of saying nicotine is a stimulant proven to raise physiological markers of stress is trolling?

Or I can just do this, which should be more than enough evidence to put up against a statement like this:

TheMysteriousStranger: I was under the impression that nicotine was an easy way to reduce stress immediately. But the price of using it was that you would have more stress in general unless, of course, you smoked some more.


/can't believe I'm being called out for disagreeing with a general statement about "impressions"
//are full citations really necessary to disagree with an assertion containing no citations, let alone anecdotes, but just a hunch?

I'm calling you out for this crap.

You're spouting nonsense, and acting like an ass. That's why I called you out.

/don't be a dick, you won't get treated like a dick.

Sounds your beef should be with mysterious or isildur imo.


I don't see why being annoyed at people providing neither arguments nor evidence of their own assertions have any standing to demand scholarly citing from the rest of us. I don't think it is too much to ask people to hold themselves to the standards they demand from others.
