Know your Enemy - Knowledge is Power!

Blog Post created by Thomas3.20.2010 on Sep 30, 2013

Good Morning, Fellow EXers!

I'm finally getting back to feeling normal after a long illness. I hope all of you are doing well aso! I love the colors and aromas of Autumn and now that I practice mindfulness, I'm noticing details I have missed in the past! Thank You, Nyima, for showing me mindfulness! 

This week we have a wide variety of articles but many of them focus on Big Tobacco's moves to change the industry with lots of new products. Some of these products, like the e cigarette, remain unregulated and that allows these Companies to say and do pretty much whatever makes them an EXtra buck at the EXpense of our health! 

I began publishing these Blogs every Monday morning because I discovered that by reading current Nicotine related news articles, I was fortifying my Quititude! I hope that reading them will also help you to become stronger in your resolve to ALWAYS PROTECT YOUR QUIT!
