Tobacco is one of the most addictive and destructive over-the-counter drugs known to mankind. It is one of the few legal substances available in stores as a Âconsumer productÂ that will kill or harm when used as intended.
The author of a new book titled ÂQuit SmokingÂ NOWÂ claims that anyone can quit smoking if they choose, even without the use of nicotine replacement therapy products. This hard hitting Âin your faceÂ publication not only exposes but provides an answer to what is believed to be the Worlds Greatest Deception Â Nicotine Addiction.
Quit SmokingÂ NOW also investigates the link between Âemotional gradualisationÂ and the physiological affect on the brain resulting from the nicotine addiction. The gradualisation process for smokers is the product of a gradual numbing of the emotions to the point where ones responses are slowly hardened to the consequence of smoking related disease and even death. In short anti- smoking emotional fear tactics do not work effectively for all smokers.
The bottom line is thisÂ tobacco kills. Smokers and tobacco users need urgent help to break the chains of the nicotine addiction. Tobacco reform laws and increased tobacco taxes will undoubtedly impose a certain amount of tobacco control.
However this will inadvertently cause unnecessary emotional trauma for many smokers being forced to stop smoking without access to comprehensive subsidised educational programs. Educational programs are essential for smokers. People need to LEARN how to overcome the many internal and external psychological influences associated with nicotine addiction.
The multi-million dollar NRT (Nicotine Replacement Therapy) industry, which seems to be riding very nicely on the back of the trillion dollar tobacco market, seems to target smokers and tobacco users with a very narrow medical approach, and as Alan I. Leshner Ph.D. Director of the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) once quoted ÂScience has also shown that treating addiction with medications alone is not nearly as effective as when coupled with a behavioral approach.Â [source NIDA]
The world is facing a major health epidemic as a result of smoking and tobacco related diseases. Over 450,000 people will die this year in the US alone from these diseases. These are very serious issues and tobacco is not 'just another consumer product', it is the source of the worlds greatest deception.
