Over the last two weeks or so Iíve been taking two caps of 300mg St. Johnís Wort Extract (.3% Hypericin), along with two 60mg Ginkgo caps for about a week. While it hasnít made much of a difference in my daily mood other than a bit of anxiety relief from my hectic day-to-day college business (Iím usually not too depressed anyway), it has really affected the way my body deals with nicotine. Iíd usually get a pretty good buzz from a cigarette at the end of a long day, but nowÖ..nothing. It kinda sucks, because Iíve never really smoked much, maybe 2-3 cigarettes a day at most, and have had no intentions of quitting because I really enjoy the occasional cigarette, but now its as if I have no reason to, nor do I want to anymore other than to fulfill the need to have something in my mouth.
