Cigarette Additives,
Carcinogens and Chemicals


A Destructive Natural Pesticide Which ...

Is extremely addictive when smoked Is extremely addictive when chewed
Causes addiction as permanent as alcoholism Is harder to quit than heroin or cocaine
Is not medicine and its use not therapy Is ineffective as a stand-alone quitting aid
Prevents pre-cancerous cells from dying Accelerates cancer tumor growth rates
Contributes to artery hardening Has a metabolite which may cause cancer
May kill brain cells and impair memory Is linked to lung cancer
Likely causes brain damage and depression Is also a fetus destroying teratogen
Kills half of adult smokers 13-14 years early Is beat by never taking another puff or chew!

Are we stupid or trying to commit slow suicide? Neither!

No, we were fooled. Nicotine addiction is about living a lie. It's about an external chemical fooling the brain's priorites teacher into believing that that next nicotine fix is as important as eating. It's about hostage dopamine pathways leaving us falsely convinced that smoking nicotine defines who we are, gives us our edge, helps us cope and that life without it would be horrible. It's a giant lie!

Everything done while under nicotine's influence can be done as well or better as us. Coming home to entire days where we never once think about wanting to use is wonderful not horrible. Why fear freedom? Even the love in our heart, we get to bring it with us!

Allow knowledge and understanding to transform cold turkey into smart turkey. There is nothing to lose in becoming smarter than your chemical dependency is strong. Why fight in darkness? Be brave! Reach for understanding. Yes you can!
