Exorcising the tobacco demon

Wednesday, July 27th, 2016

 

“Smoking causes cancer, breathing problems, heart attacks, and stroke. Secondhand smoke causes asthma and breathing problems. Support groups, nicotine replacement therapy, and other medications can help you quit.”

These are the first few sentences from this guide sent to me by a reader. The most important thing for quitting is initiative. Quitting tobacco is the kind of goal we’ll happily sign off on here at SC. Make sure to also check out this Wikipedia article on the subject. And as with everything else, smoking weed will probably make your time quitting slightly less unenjoyable.
