Tobacco is a cunning drug. It is also addictive. I’m still smoking after all of these years.I enjoy it. I smoke like an iron lung. I hide from non-smokers. I smell of ash trays. They said it smelt bad, but I disagree. Dog poo smells bad. Perhaps I am justifying myself. I don’t want to either defend or attack smoking or smokers. I want to put a case forward for how I view cigarettes today. We grew up at a time when smoking wasn’t considered harmful. We smoked in the office. Everyone smoked. We all had our own ashtrays and pipes and tobacco. In those days, there weren’t a lot of women around the workplace. Why did I say that!. That’s another story. After some years and entering the Politically Correct (PC) years, those noobs (young folk) through whatever mindset came to abhor smokers, including hippies…but we were all hippies. Slowly the tide turned against smokers and cigarettes. We got banned from most places. They taxed us, raised the prices and engineered us to feel like we were at the bottom of the drug addict heap. They gave us plain packaging and horrible Photoshop’d images on our packets of black teeth, babies and holes in necks with pipes protruding just to remind us how bad we are. Every second of every moment you lit up, you felt like BigBro knew and was scolding you. They told us it caused cancer and “here’s the scientific proof son”. Lungs certainly need oxygen. But I, for the life of me can’t see causation of cancer linked to tobacco. In a time when the science sector is disproved with monotonous regularity on pretty much everything. A time when science hasn’t invented anything since the wheel and iPhone’s we certainly must have, like a hole in the head. Hell yeah! Way to go! Of course since I was young we have made astonishing leaps and bounds but nothing that contributes to humanity. The lady that started this campaign was Nicola Roxon MP, the Health Minister of Parliament House in Canberra the capital of Australia, where all the big decisions are made.
There are more issues than the ones mentioned. Whilst agreeing with the general premise that smoking isn’t the best thing to do on the planet, I think consideration should be given to smokers who are hooked. Most smokers don’t give up. And those that have, good luck to you. Perhaps they had support, I have no idea. Whatever reason is good enough for me. You get to save money and breathe oxygen exclusively. So for those of us that struggle with cigarette addiction, there is no support only criticism. They sell it to you, tax you…then criticise you all in that order. It has been said and many scholars agree that it’s both hypocritical and morally bankrupt of government; our servants, to put this onto smokers. I actually like to smoke. It reminds me of better days. I, like all smokers know we can’t smoke forever and we all agree, we should give it up, but coupled with the fact that today’s climate around the world isn’t rosy. Financially, the system is falling down. Jobs are scare. We are growing older. Smoking is…as they say a dying art. My argument is that if smoking killed and caused cancer then like poison it would kill everyone the same way, yet that’s not the case. I would love to give up and not have to take it up again.
(NaturalNews) Before tobacco was polluted with somewhere between 1,000 and 4,000 chemicals, anyone could quit the habit, even cold turkey without help, but because today’s premium brands have juiced up the nicotine so high, it seems to take a small miracle to cure someone of smoking. keepitsacred
In fact, the majority of smokers light up just to feel normal, and catch a little bit of stimulation or relaxation; however, even after quitting a smoker’s organs and central nervous system remain poisoned from the chemicals for up to 12 months. This sickened state is what drives smokers back looking for relief, not the “nicotine addiction.” medicolegal
The history of commercial tobacco production in the United States dates back to the 17th century when the first commercial crop was planted. But why do the chemicals in cigarettes have so much more to do with the smoking addiction than nicotine? Most cigarette smokers do not understand it’s the chemicals in cigarettes that wreak havoc in their central nervous system, fueling the need for the short-lived relief nicotine brings. itcanoline
History proves that the premium brands contain more chemicals than others, and that is why they rule the market share, and most of their “loyal smokers” will not even smoke the competition’s brand because the “kick” or “taste” just isn’t the same. What most fail to realize is that this desired kick and taste comes with a very steep price – that being more pesticides, more ammonia, and a richer toxic cocktail that does damage to the lungs and nervous system in the short term. quitsmoking
When a smoker tries to quit by using the pills, the patch, nicotine gum, electronic cigarettes, or even cold turkey, what drives him or her back to smoking isn’t the craving of nicotine, an addiction which is broken within the first 3 to 4 days.
If all cigarette manufacturers today faced strict and thorough inspections and regulations, and had no choice but to eliminate all of the chemicals, the number of cancer cases would be reduced immensely, and the ability to stop smoking without help would be reasonable again.
14 AndOut is a comprehensive smoking cessation program which shows smokers how organic tobacco is a key component to the weaning process, and that just by eliminating the chemicals from the equation, smokers are killing the urge to smoke, and that is exactly how to kill the habit.
Once the smoker drops the premium, chemical laden cigarettes, a simple nutrition and vitamin/supplement program rewards their heart, brain, and central nervous system with balance and energy, so they never desire nicotine again. 14AndOut is available as an instantly downloadable video so you don’t have to wait any longer to begin cessation! It comes with a well-researched nutritional guide, so get ready for the gift that keeps on giving, and giving, and giving.
