Want To Quite Smoking? Injure Your Brain.

Science marches on:

Scientists studying stroke patients are reporting that an injury to a specific part of the brain, near the ear, can instantly and permanently break a smoking habit, effectively erasing the most stubborn of addictions. People with the injury who stopped smoking found that their bodies, as one man put it, “forgot the urge to smoke.”
Great. Now all I have to do to quit is start: bashing my head into things/bashing things into my head. I may not be posting for a while.
