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.
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.
