This fits the claims of smart people like Samuel R. Delany who say 
they could take it or leave it, and seem to be telling the truth. I 
suppose the trouble is you can't be sure what sort of response you'll 
show until you're maybe in too deep. But I was able to give up 
cigarettes, alcohol, coffee and almost all black tea without 
*dreadful* trouble (although I needed about 4 runs at the smokes over 
a decade or so--that stuff is *seriously* habituating/addictive).
