O. Libert (no first name available) was a researcher for Battelle Research Institute in Geneva, Switzerland, circa 1963. C. Haselbach and O. Libert completed several studies in 1963. In May 1963, a study was sent by Battelle to British American Tobacco entitled "A Tentative Hypothesis on Nicotine Addiction," which said in part that the body craves renewed drug intake, and that this unconscious desire explains the addiction of the individual to nicotine. He also says unlike other dopings, such as morphine, the demand for increasing dose levels is relatively low for nicotine. It also explained the need for increased doses to sustain the effect.
