Nicotine notions do worse than block the sufficiently powerful will, motivation, of smokers to stop ingesting nicotine and for good. Those hidden 'butt-attitudes' take away from non smokers the degree of compassion required to be truly helpful.

Winston-Salem, NC (PRWEB) April 30, 2007 -- Today, Truth for Healthy Living and its website's sponsor, Richard Terry Lovelace, are giving free access to the "Simple-7" stop-smoking program. It takes the unique and addiction-appropriate approach of reducing health risk denial to release motivation by countering a recently uncovered cluster of "nicotine notions."

Appropriate Assistance Needed
Free access is being given as a public health service and to encourage "appropriate help" for cigarette smokers. "Appropriate help deals with the root cause," says Dr. Lovelace. "To date, America's non smokers have provided essentially nothing that helps with the all-important cause of chronic cigarette smoking. Little wonder the relapse rate of trying-to-quit smokers is nearly 100-percent. And many of the relative few who do quit suffer from 'addiction transfer' . . . tragically substitute one health-threatening and costly dependence for another."
Root Cause of the Root Cause
Convinced that the lives and financial futures of a great many of our children are at stake, Lovelace is outspoken. "If you Web-search for the root cause of chronic smoking," this licensed clinical social worker asserts, "instead of what you need to know to help protect children you'll be told that the root cause of several major illnesses is cigarette smoking. But the truth is that no one smokes enough cigarettes to do serious injury unless he or she is dependent on the drug, nicotine. Substance addiction is the root cause of chronic smoking and those major illnesses."
"In addition to and much more than physical need and withdrawal, a group of nine nicotine notions is the pivotal part of nicotine addiction," believes Dr. Lovelace. "Nicotine notions do worse than block the sufficiently powerful will, motivation, of smokers to stop ingesting nicotine and for good. Those hidden 'butt-attitudes' take away from non smokers the degree of compassion required to be truly helpful."
Non Smokers in More Deadly Denial Than Smokers
The untrue and unknown cluster of ideas Lovelace discovered and named "nicotine notions" also hurts non smokers. He explains, "When I tell obviously bright and generally knowledgeable people that nicotine addiction is by far the most serious; it causes four times more U.S. preventable deaths than alcohol and illicit drugs combined, non smokers deny that it's serious enough. They begin to tell me, for example, the false notion called 'Smoking only hurts me (smokers).' That denial of reality does more harm because it contributes to there being practically nil addiction-appropriate help for current smokers and our children who will become addicted to nicotine."
Non smokers can take a test to see if they might have this "deadly denial." Go to Truth for Healthy Living's website, truthforhealthyliving.org, and click on the link to "tests." Like the articles, all of the tests are free.
