Blog Post created by Thomas3.20.2010 on Sep 23, 2013

Good Morning EX Community!

Well, it;s Flu Vaccination time for those of us who have COPD. If you haven't gotten your shot yet, don't wait around, OK? I got mine on Friday and yes, every year that dang shot makes me sick! But if it keeps me out of the hospital, then it's worth it! 

Again, today's posts are dominated by other Country's choices. Australia, for EXample, is considering making ALL sickerettes illegal! England is banning sickerettes from prisons. Read their compelling reasons why they're going to this EXtreme. Here in the States, new Research Grants were passed to determine which types of tobacco products should be illegalized and which should be regulated - better late than never, as they say!

I post these Blogs every Monday to help all of us to fortify our Quititude by Knowing our Enemy! Knowing just how devious Big Tobacco is and how poisonous Nicotine is helps me to stay focused and determined in my Quit Journey! Hopefully, it will do the same for you!
