KNOW YOUR ENEMY - KNOWLEDGE IS POWER!

Blog Post created by Thomas3.20.2010 on Feb 4, 2013

Good Morning, EXers and Becomers! As often as my health allows I publish this Blog on Mondays. The purpose is to let you browse the latest news on smking related topics. I have found that knowing about Nicotine by reading Allen Carr's The Easy Way, quitsmokingonline.com and whyquit.com as well as the news of the day and Blogs here at BecomeanEX have helped my quit journey stay on solid ground and generally "happy" as my Friend James taught me! So grab a cup of coffee or morning tea and get comfortable and learn about the true enemy (not the Nico-Demon ~ HE IS ME!) Nicotine!
