Cool idea. I think it should be a person's choice if it does work. I do worry that since it affects the brain, how safe can it be?

I would hope this "vaccine" will be harmless and have no side effects. Too often the pharmaceutical drugs prescribed to treat the symptoms of diseases have worse side effects than the illness they are prescribed for. It would be such a God send if it really works and helps people quit smoking, as long as it will not cause some other kind of harm to them.

What a total waste of money. There is only one thing smokersneed to do to stop smoking - stop buying them. Simple.
