Good news for smokers trying to give up the evil weed, a drug which mimics the effects of nicotine could be on sale in Britain within months. The new drug, Chantrix helped over 50% of smokers to quit in a recent study. Also side effects are minimal, (mainly nausea) and can be avoided by spacing out doses during the day.
On another note, children's satellite channel Boomerang have banned smoking scenes from Tom and Jerry cartoons after an annonymous complaint from a viewer to a tv watchdog. It was thought that the scenes "glamourized" smoking to impressionable young viewers.
