If you think the timing is wrong for quitting cigarettes, you are wrong - Now is the time!
by S. D. Wells
(NaturalNews) I bet you didn't know that nicotine in commercial cigarettes is up to 35 times stronger than it was in the 1950's and early 1960's, before Big Tobacco (Marlboro and Kool) started using ammonia to free-base it. That is the number one reason why 95% of smokers who try to quit without help will return to smoking within 6 months. Nicotine is artificial chemical control of your emotions. Some people are switching to e-cigs (electronic cigarettes), so they can keep their nicotine addiction going strong while eliminating "some" of the chemicals found in the commercial cancer sticks. Other people quit cold turkey, usually after finding out they have cancer, or after a close friend or relative winds up six feet under from the nicotine nightmare. Talk about bad timing.
Quitting "cold turkey" is very difficult. Most people who quit smoking "cave in" and start back up again within half a year, but why? That's because most programs give little to zero advice about nutrition and building back up the nutrients and the gut "flora" (good bacteria), which is destroyed by the 4,000 chemicals in every cigarette. Also, behavior rituals like breathing patterns and hand to mouth habits must be replaced with positive ones, or they will be missed and might cause a relapse. (http://www.naturalnews.com)
Plus, on top of everything else that sends smokers back to the well, toxic food and high blood acidity can cause nicotine withdrawal symptoms to flare up and the "urge to smoke" seem more "necessary," leading to temporary relief from cravings and stressful moments, only to drag the person back into the undertow of chemical addiction and artificial emotion control.

On top of the big "hooks" that keep smokers addicted, the cigarette industry spends about $23,000,000 a day on advertising and promotions. The statistics are all consuming, and cigarettes cause about 5 million deaths annually worldwide. Still, people smoke and wonder why they don't quit. Want to know why? They can't quit because they don't know how. Even though "Big Tobacco" got busted for fraud and settled in the billions, they're still up to no good, free-basing nicotine and brainwashing people into the habit from which they just can't seem to "escape."
23 million smokers in U.S. wish they could QUIT today There are 46,000,000 smokers in the U.S. alone and half want to quit, but only 5% will succeed. Scary ads don't work, and commercial cigarettes are STILL JUICED UP WITH AMMONIA, despite settling with Blue Cross Blue Shield to the tune of $6.5 billion in the 1990's for doing just that and also marketing to children and teens. "More than 15 years has passed since the conclusion of the Minnesota tobacco trial and the signing of the Master Settlement Agreement (MSA) by 46 U.S. State Attorney Generals and the US tobacco industry. The Minnesota settlement exposed the tobacco industry's long history of deceptive marketing, advertising, and research and ultimately forced the industry to change its business practices. It has also been more than 15 years since the tobacco industry's individual settlements with the states of Mississippi (1997), Florida (1997), and Texas (1998) ... These agreements are the 5 largest settlements in the history of litigation." (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov)
The CDC scary advertising campaign is also a dismal failure, only helping about 4% of the people who see it quit smoking, half of whom go back to smoking within 6 months, so what's the use? Although the CDC brags that 1.6 million people TRIED to quit thanks to their scary ad campaign, how many really did quit? You can't just scare people out of the third strongest addictive drug on the planet (nicotine); people need guidance and nutritional help.
The Number One Excuse is "Bad Timing" The single most popular excuse that people use for not quitting is that the timing is wrong. They will say that times are TOO stressful, so they'll have to wait, but the last thing the body needs while it's under stress is ammonia, bleach, pesticide and plastic fumes entering the lungs, attached to chemical tar and glass fibers that cut the epithelial tissue. This breaks down the person's immunity and makes them more susceptible to common colds, flu, viruses, bacterial infections, nasal congestion, allergies, sinus infections, bronchial infections, bladder infections, depression, sleep disorders and more. So go figure. Who needs all of that when times are stressful? Some people turn to electronic cigarettes to filter out some of the chemicals contained in commercial cigarettes (except for diethylene glycol - antifreeze - which causes leukemia!), but many of those people learn a hard lesson: nicotine damages the central cleansing organs and causes a host of its own problems, short term and long term, so bragging rights there are few and far between.

One way out of the nicotine "prison" is to combine chemical knowledge with behavior modification and nutritional guidance. These three factors and skill bases, when taught and used correctly, have the highest success rate for helping smokers quit and stay smoke-free for life. There is a natural method that incorporates all three of these phases and is receiving excellent reviews. Studies show that smokers who seek help and follow the "yellow brick road" to a smoke-free life have an easier time "sticking to their guns." The 14AndOut one hour program (video of the class) teaches smokers how to wean themselves off commercial cigarettes in 14 days or less and is recommended by Mike Adams, the Health Ranger and Editor of Natural News. The program has been a sensation for the past two years and there is nothing else like it on the market right now. Give 14AndOut a try and share the natural method with your friends, co-workers, relatives and/or neighbors who smoke cigarettes and speak of quitting. Stop smoking before 2014 and bring in the New Year with style and good health. Where there is a will, there is a way!
