  • Mood:

Smoking tobacco

Ooookay. So, the premise is:
1. The two characters switch bodies because of a freak chemical accident.
2. Character A is a smoker (I'd estimate that he consumes one to two packs a day), character B is not.
3. Character A attempts to smoke in character B's body.

Several questions:
1. According to wikipidia, nicotine does cause psychological dependency, but that addiction comes from the nicotine residue left in the body. If that's the case, is it plausible for Character A to crave (is that even the correct word to use?) for nicotine while in another body?

2. Assuming that A does get the urge to light a cigarette, would he be able to smoke like he had in his previous body, or would he smoke like a newbie?
(To people who've tried to quit smoking, have succeeded for more than a month or two, and then picked up another pack: did you have difficulty in remembering how to smoke?)

3. Assuming that A does smoke like a newbie: What would he experience, physically and mentally? I've never smoked, so I don't know what a new smoker feels. I do know, however, that there's coughing involved.
