I want to give you permanent brain damage -- some of you, anyway...

NYTimes article...

Scientists studying stroke patients are reporting that an injury to a specific
part of the brain, near the ear, can instantly and permanently break a smoking
habit, effectively erasing the most stubborn of addictions. People with the
injury who stopped smoking found that their bodies, as one man put it, “forgot
the urge to smoke.”

Well, I don't know if I'm really suggesting it - but I can see visions of kungfu masters demonstrating the anti-smoking chop. "Hit him right here.. and when he wakes up, he won't want to smoke anymore!"
