Whew! This so clearly shows that cigarettes are one of the most deadly of the addictive drugs on earth. This is the lowest point a person can go with cigarettes.

Thank goodness for this site and Joel. Thank you for bringing it home why we can never ever take another puff.

Two months this Thursday after 42 years of addiction.

I saw where a member wrote that sometimes when a person is too ill they are too distracted to think about cigarettes. This may be a true statement for an ex-smoker, but not so likely to be true for an active smoker. I am going to kick up a few posts that make this point clear.

Also take a look at what I found on a tobacco site:

Virtually all U.S. cigarettes include common flavors such as cocoa, sugar, licorice and fruit- and mint-based derivatives.

Just coincidence? I think not.

Cocoa, Vanilla Extract, Almond Bitters and hundreds more make up a cigarette, most added by the manufacturer to make it taste better. Can't imagine what it would taste like without all of that stuff.

I saw this on a tobacco company website - "Smoking is addictive and dangerous".

It took me more than 40 years to get angry about what I was doing to my body as a nicotine junkie. I only hope that I am not too late.

"I smoke for flavor. Or, I smoke to stand out as looking good. The man pictured above, and the thousands of others like him who smoke after losing their voice boxes are classic examples of why people actually smoke. They smoke because they are addicted to nicotine." Joel

This does happens, it happened to my Grandfather, it caused his death, he was never able to read us a story or see us grow up
The other day I saw a mature women purchasing 4 cartons of nicotine and she communicated by an electronical device placed to her throat and BAM..... I was reminded of my Grandfather and I wept when I got in my car!

Its okay to smile, joke and laugh here....we all understand we need the joy, but sometimes we need to remember always,
this QUITTING is serious stuff. Hold your quit tight, you are worth the work!!!!

Living, Laughing and Loving every day with a smile and Never Taking Another Puff..... Star

We smoked because if we didn't we would experience withdrawal.

Flavor?
The tobacco industry spends billions in order to condition society to believe that smokers smoke because the mini toxic waste dump present in every burning cigarette (43 carcinogins, more than 500 gases and over 3,500 chemical particles) pleases human tastebuds.
Why are the more than 500 flavor additives been identified in cigarettes? Why are they really there? Is there even one flavor additive on the above list that you cannot have by the bowl full without the 43 carcinogens? Why is menthol really used? Could it be for numbing throat tissues and making toxic smoke tolerable?


How many cigarette smokers do you know who don't **** the smoke deep into their lungs and then briefly hold it so that it can transport its captivating cargo?
How many smokers do you know who have even one tastebud inside their lungs?
Haven't you earned the right to self-honesty?
