Understanding Addition: The Power Of Nicotine
May 19, 2008 9:37pm CST
If not us personally, we all know someone who is wanting and trying to quit smoking. This was me in 1999, so I can relate. After smoking for 14 years, I finally quit, with the help of Almighty God. I found a like that explains nicotine and the poisons in cigarettes. I know that you are saying, oh no, not another person coming down on me and sending disturbing information for me to quit. But there is nothing cute about the affects of cigarettes. Heart Failure recently forced my brother-in-law to quit. It is never to late to start quitting. http://www.everydayhealth.com/publicsite/index.aspx?puid=da43c3c9-5481-4a7f-9381-5ed34480d7c3&p=2

My husband has been harping on quitting for a while now but still no luck. I suggested he get help from his doctor i.e try those patches and such but he thinks he can quit on his own. I'm still waiting for when he will start. I thought when he was diagnosed with Diabetes that, that might wake him up but no, it hasn't changed at all.

I believe that I told you when he was first diagnosed he would be afraid for a while, but once he realized that he was not going to just fall over and die, he would slowly go back to normal. I meant that as a comfort back then, but it can go both ways. The next time he tells you that he can quit on his own, you may want to ask him why he doesn't quit then. The bottom line is that he can quit on his own, but he hast to want to. In order for him to want to, he hast to truly believe that it will work. In order for him to believe that it will work, he hast to find the courage to try.
