A new report by Bloomberg cites, a new study in the Journal of Psychopharmacology which "found that smokers who had long had trouble quitting their habit managed to remain smoke-free for six months using a highly unorthodox method: Consuming the active ingredient in magic mushrooms"
...a simple biological reaction to psilocybin, as with other medications that directly affect nicotine receptors," Johnson said in a press release. "When administered after careful preparation and in a therapeutic context, psilocybin can lead to deep reflection about one's life and spark motivation to change."
Results were extremely promising. "The rates of quitting were so high, twice as high as what you typically see with the gold standard medication,” Matthew Johnson, a researcher involved in the study explained to Bloomberg News . Six months later, 12 of the 15 participants remained smoke-free. The researchers noted that those who experienced hallucinations or out-of-body experiences were most likely to successfully quit tobacco."
"Taking the onus off the restaurant owner makes everybody feel a little bit better in that situation" she said
