If you could live tobacco free wouldn’t that be great? Today we know of the hazards of smoking and yet it is one of the hardest things to give up! The nicotine is very addictive and the tobacco companies know this. However, there are many activities and services available to help quit the habit.
One of the resources that we can use is the Mayo Nicotine Dependence Center. They have many resources to help people quit more easily. The treatment is individualized and supervised by specialists in nicotine dependence. There is even an 8 day residential program available. This center is devoted to helping nicotine dependent people kick the habit for good and they have a very good success rate.
If you think changing from smoking to using dip or chew is better- think again! A dip held in the mouth for 30 minutes is equal in nicotine to 4 cigarettes! You may be saving your lungs but you are damaging something just as important- your heart. There is NO nicotine product that is safe. By trying to substitute one bad habit for another you are only fooling yourself, but your body can tell the difference.
