My personal experience has always caused me to believe Marlboro was the most addictive cigarette on the market.

Me too. I switched brands when I found out about all the additives they were putting in there (saltpeter?!?!?!). I switched to Winston because of their 100% tobacco,"No Bull" marketing thing. From the artcle, I see that they are fairly high on the freebase factor! Maybe I need to go to camels.

I smoke lights and ultra-lights, with a mind to get the chemical addiction as low as possible before I drop 'em again. Last time, "anger management" was a big problem.

Not inhaling the first three or four puffs on any cig might be another good addiction minimizing trick, based on what the article said.

I don't smoke, but I have to hear more about this. Marlboros have WHAT in them? (Thanks in advance.)

Since the freebase factor only concerns nicotine it becomes a choice between high doses of nicotine and chemical additives. I will freely admit I am and have been addicted to tobacco since I started smoking. I have no plans to quit. Do I need to worry about how addictive the brand of tobacco I'm smoking is?
