Reggie's admission that he's hooked is a critical first step toward permanently arresting his dependency.
The tobacco industry spent $14 billion dollars last year brainwashing children and teens into believing that smokers smoke for every reason imaginable except the truth. They refuse to warn youth that almost all daily smokers are already addicted. They want Reggie to believe that, at worst, all he has is a "nasty little habit." Treating a true addiction as a habit is a recipe for relapse and lifetime captivity. Like alcoholism and taking a sip, when quitting there is no such thing as just one cigarette or one puff. Just one rule - Never Take Another Puff!
