From Kenneth Saxe :

Re: Schizophrenia reassessed as fixation on self (Jan. 23): I enjoyed reading the article “Schizophrenia reassessed as fixation on self”.

I have seen articles indicating that there is some evidence that cigarette smoking is ‘self-medicating’ for Schizophrenia.

It would be cool if this could be further validated by the MRI brain scans. And if indeed smoking give comfort due to suppressing that region of the brains overactivity, what else may have same affect.
