Top o' the Morning, Everybody! I hope this Month is providing all of you lots of reasons to enter Spring Smoke FREE! There's something about green grass and trees, flowers and natural renewal that just doesn't live comfortably with killing ourselves one puff at a time but does fit comfortably with Nicotine Recovery! One of the most important tools in my Quit Tool Box is KNOWLEDGE! That's why every Monday when health permits I publish this series of current tobacco related articles. I find that reading them enhances my Quititude!
Take the article about Third Hand Smoke! WOW! It makes you think twice about the Third hand smoke we're exposed to each and every day - let alone Second Hand Smoke!!!! What a hazard to all people of all ages and the health care costs that all of us are paying! Something to open your eyes this morning....
So get comfortable, grab you cup of coffe or tea and learn more about tobacco and smoking!
