Grapefruit

For those people looking to quit, grapefruit has known drug interactions, specifically, inhibiting the metabolism of many drugs (nicotine is among them, according to this abstract http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/17112808). However, the nicotine WILL enter your system through your mouth, just not be metabolized. It may be a way to purge your body of nicotine faster than without it, abbreviating the withdrawal symptoms significantly. This is a bit of a non sequitur for you at this point, but if you ever find yourself wanting to quit again, this information may be useful.
