Hi Preston,

I know several people who quit smoking by chewing Sage (Salvia 
officinalis - don't try that with Salvia divinorum ;-)

It's not that you only "do something orraly", it's also its ingredients 
which somehow repel use of tobacco... I never cared to research this in 
details, so I don't know exactly what's supposed to go on.

V should be careful recommending you parsley --> it's a powerful 
aphrodisiac in large quantyties =)
