The Nicotine Delusion


Title: Paperback
Sale price£18.95


In his inimitable satirical style, Dr Gabriel Symonds shines a critical light on the shortcomings of the orthodox approach to smoking cessation, especially the recommendation to use e-cigarettes (vaping) which he argues is both misleading and unnecessary. He shows how the concept of ‘smoking-harm reduction’ is not only flawed but counterproductive. The deceitful practices of Big Tobacco, particularly their repulsive use of animal experiments, also come under scrutiny.

Included in this wide-ranging anthology are examinations of the contentious issues of so-called gender dysphoria and transgender treatment, psychiatric research and the use of hallucinogenic drugs in depression, vitamin drips for healthy people, an inquiry into the meaning of consciousness, and an essay on misuse of the English language. 

Originally posted on Dr Symonds’s website, these controversial articles will be sure to inform, amuse, and surprise.


Dr Gabriel Symonds is a British doctor living in Tokyo where for many years he ran the Tokyo British Clinic serving the expatriate community. Now semi-retired, he offers his unique method of smoking cessation as well as Jungian-based psychotherapy.
