The main point of smoking is to ingest nicotine, mainly for its psychological effects. Over time, a smoker will get addicted to smoking, not just to smoke, but for the nicotine. When this smoker eventually decides to quit, he simply cannot go it alone due to the main nicotine addiction. The solution: use pills or patches. Guess what they contain. Half of the time, prospective quitters start smoking again within six months. Now, this paragraph forms the basis of this post title: the substitute for smoking is nicotine. The substitute for nicotine is smoking. Therefore, based on rather simple mathematical logic, the substitute for smoking is smoking.
That last sentence would be perfectly descriptive if the context was not to be screwed with in this paragraph. Especially when you do not know for sure what kind of smoking this post is discussing. So when I said that the substitute for smoking is smoking, was the context supposed to be nicotine, food or tyres? I'll let the readers decide while I enjoy some smoked ribs.
