A Vaccine to Stop Smoking?

Credit: R'eyes

We’ve all heard (or know first-hand) how hard it is to stop smoking, but what if there was a vaccine that made it easier to quit? A vaccine that actually stimulated your immune system to generate antibodies that would latch on to nicotine in your smoker’s body and prevent it from ever entering the brain, thereby cutting the cord between you and addiction. Crazy, right?

The vaccine is just in clinical trails now and is by no means a cure-all: Only 16 percent of those who tested the vaccine were able to stop smoking and not start again, compared with 6 percent in the placebo group. Researchers do believe though that the vaccine’s concept could help people overcome other drug addictions. I say that anything that makes quitting easier is good, but I know many are fearful of vaccine’s side effects these days. Would you try a vaccine to quit smoking?
