Tobacco is a performance enhancing drug.

The World Anti-Doping Agency can take the first steps toward classifying
nicotine as a performance-enhancing drug today, when it meets to update
its list of substances prohibited in sport. WADA has received a report from
its accredited laboratory in Lausanne, Switzerland, that describes
"alarming evidence" of nicotine use by athletes across 43 sports studied.
The performance-enhancing effects of nicotine included increased
"vigilance and cognitive function," and reduced stress and body weight.

Unfortunately the deleterious effects must be considered.

Yes, but due to combustion. It's said that certain smokeless tobacco is as harmless as having a cup of coffee.

I'm flying out to Sweden in February to stock up on Swedish snus. Here's a couple of links from today and yesterday's papers:

I agree with you and would be proud myself had i never smoked but i do or did but smoking doesn't have to be the only delivery system of nicotine.

I agree. Combustion is bad. But you don't have to smoke to get the nicotine and MAOI combination. There is smokeless tobacco such as Swedish snus which is about as harmful as a cup of coffee.
