Addiction is full of lies.

Lies we tell ourselves - "umm, smells good!"

Lies we tell others - "I don't smoke that much."

Lies we tell God - "Let me smoke and I promise to behave in every other way!"

 

But one of the biggest lies is that smoking calms my anxiety!

TRUTH

Smoking causes the very anxiety it purports to relieve - and the Nicotine Industry knows it!

Do you?

 

There are a thousand ways to really relieve anxiety and stress - smoking is not one of them!

My favorite is mindfulness - What's yours?
