Just this week, my children suffered a terrible loss, that of a parent. The parent was their stepfather, a man I very much liked and respected. He was only a couple of years older than me, but he died much to young.
He was a lifelong smoker, and in his later years, when the tobacco taxes caused cigarettes to skyrocket, switched to those little cigars that have the same shape as a cigarette, and can cost as little as 99 cent a pack. While those little cigars may not have been entirely responsible for the lung cancer that ultimately took his life, but I have no doubt that they were the cause.
For most of his 68 years, he puffed away, hooked on the nicotine that was manipulated by big tobacco. Of course, with the four thousand other ingredients added to every cigarette no doubt made it to difficult for him to quit. Even after his cancer was diagnosed, he refused to change his habits.
So, we now grieve for him. But, what if he had been able to “kick” the habit years ago? Would he still be with us? It is of course, hard to say, and we will never know, but looking at the chart below indicates that he would be. I wish that he, and everyone else that truly wants to stop smoking could be successful. The results would be astonishing.
A safer alternative to smoking is Vaping. Now while we can not make any health claims, there are many studies that SUGGEST vaping is much less harmful to the body. Working in a Vape store, where many individuals purchase products everyday produces wonderful testimonies from customers who are successfully tobacco free weeks, months and YEARS later.
