Minimal effects of prolonged smoking abstinence or resumption on cognitive performance challenge the "self-medication" hypothesis in schizophrenia


No way I am getting back to nicotine addiction, especially with this result of there being no difference. I did consider taking up vaping nicotine, but if this is the case it would be pointless as there is no cognitive advantage to it.

Thanks @firemonkey

I always figured schizophrenics primarily smoked because of increased GABA from smoking. So, I guess I am not yet convinced that people are not self-medicating. But yeah, smoking’s bad - don’t do it.
