    I believe that's part of the reason it's bad for you. It increases the levels of the neurotransmitters and chemicals at an uncontrollable rate.

    this is true..therapeutic however in some cases...where the release of these transmitters are inhibited through diseases.
    however generally bad for you yes....

    Nicotine is a great natural insecticide. Chewing tobacco in water sprayed on your garden veggies will kill spider mites and all types of pests.

    However, if applied by mouth it's just not effective, and kinda nasty...

    It also acts to extract venom from bee stings. If youre in the middle of nowhere and stung, scrape off the stinger, put some tobacco in your mouth and when it's wet apply it over the sting for about 15 minutes.

    Nats and Mosquitos are drawn to carbon dioxide which you exhale everytime you take a breath. This is probably why they swarm you. There probably isn't enough nicotine in the puffs of 2nd hand smoke to repel them.
