Nicotine dependence retreated in poetry from 1915
There is a quote that say that wisdom is popular. Note that pearl of poetry from 1915 mentioning about the addictive effects of nicotine in brain, reflecting a disease known today as smoking ( ICD 17.2). This permit to say “Quit smoking Since 1915!”
” Tobacco is a dirty weed. I like it.
It satisfies no normal need. I like it.
It makes you thin, it makes you lean,
It takes the hair right off your bean.
It’s the worst darn stuff I’ve ever seen.
I like it.”
Graham Lee Hemminger, Penn State Froth, Tobacco, 1915
