(NaturalNews) The best metaphor for the smoking addiction and how it has gotten so many millions of people hooked is gambling. Gambling is a major addiction in the United States for many people. They go to Atlantic City or Las Vegas and bet their whole paycheck, sometimes cash advances on credit, or worse, their life savings, trying to win big money. But why are all the casinos big, shiny, well-lit, beautiful buildings that thrive even in hard times? Because they let you have some 'little' winnings during the big losses, and that keeps you playing, paying, until they've drained everything you brought or borrowed, and sometimes even more. Gambling takes away your drive to work, your real dream, it takes away your drive to succeed, and it does it with little false hopes and big let downs. It's a set up. It's a scam. It's a hook. Gambling robs you of your money, which is a horror story in itself, but smoking robs you of EVERY DOLLAR AND YOUR HEALTH. (http://peele.net/lib/gambling.php)

Worldwide, tobacco use causes five million deaths per year, and current trends show it will cause more than EIGHT MILLION DEATHS ANNUALLY by 2030. Most of those smokers started out just smoking one or two cigarettes a day, just gambling a "little bit" with their health. Now, they smoke one, two, even three packs a day and can't quit. Or can they?

Russian roulette, the roulette wheel and commercial cigarettes

Ever seen the movie the "Deer Hunter," where the soldier convinces his captors to let him load extra bullets in the gun he was supposed to aim at his own head and fire? He loads the extra bullets and shoots all the enemies standing around. This is the famous scene where Robert De Niro's and Christopher Walken's characters are being forced to play Russian roulette by their Vietcong captors. (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MMjZKXaptBk)

The Big Tobacco "man" has a plan to trap you, but Natural News has a plan to free you. The U.S. government and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) have some scary ads for you, that rarely ever work, if at all. (http://www.naturalnews.com/034518_stop_smoking_program_courses.html)

Natural News shares a holistic program that guides the smoker out of chemicals and into supplements and nutrition. It's called 14AndOut, and the creator of the program learned the hard way. The one hour instructional video download comes with the nutritional guide. Join the 14AndOut "ex-smoker" family, and learn how to quit smoking in 14 days or fewer, naturally.

If you smoke commercial cigarettes, you can "eliminate the enemy" right now, by loading up with knowledge and the natural way to stop smoking for good, so you can live your healthy life and not play Russian roulette every day, waiting for anxiety, sickness and "gambling" to get the best of you.

Free yourself of the "habit."

Real vs. fake momentum

Each cigarette gives you just a little fix of nicotine (about 100 mg of potency thanks to ammonia), which provides a little hit of confidence, or of relaxation, by helping your brain distribute a chemical that is foreign to your system, only to keep you coming back for more, until you get sick, spend thousands and thousands on chemotherapy and radiation, and until you eventually die. (http://archive.tobacco.org/News/98minnesota.html)

It's a system engineered, just like gambling, to take your money and deliver 'little wins,' all while you lose big time. (http://www.rulet.ws/Cheats-On-Roulette-Wheels.html)

If you smoke, it's time to quit. The good news is you can begin quitting right away. You can change everything today, or tonight. Find out about Superfoods and utilize the "14AndOut" tools to start your new smoke-free life. (http://store.naturalnews.com/Superfoods_c_4.html)

Share this information with friends, relatives, neighbors and co-workers who want to quit smoking. There is an escape from the cigarette roulette. There is an intelligent, well-researched, honest, natural, and ever-lasting one. (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R4Ua1YyCA5A)
