This Isn't Your Grandparent's Cigs!   Quit Support

This may be shocking news for you OR just a wonderful reminder, but today's cigs are not as they were 50 years ago when smokers seemed to "get away" with smoking....here's why. 

What a lot of people don’t know is that cigarettes have actually become more dangerous.

A recent report from the U.S. Surgeon General—the Nation’s “top doctor”—relates that cigarettes are more toxic now than in the 1950s because tobacco companies have changed the design and ingredients of cigarettes. As a result, both men and women have a much higher risk for lung cancer and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (or COPD, a serious lung disease that makes it difficult to breathe) from smoking today than did smokers 50 years ago.

The good news is that fewer people are smoking. But tobacco is a business and business must grow! (Right?) By making cigarettes more addictive and less harsh to smoke, tobacco companies are able to increase the number of cigarettes smoked by those that do smoke. 

So, don't allow these companies to grow at the expense of your life! Take back the power you've given over to them and read Allan Carr's book "The Easy Way to Quit Smoking". It really does work and you can read the outstanding 5 star reviews on Amazon. I have no affiliation with this company or the author but have read the book and had no urge to smoke whatsoever afterwards. It really does work!
