Smoking is one of the worst things you can do. You know it, I know it, everyone knows it – but there’s still a ton of smokers out there. Why? Because it’s so hard to quit. Not only that, but a lot of the quitting options substitute the nicotine from cigarettes for nicotine elsewhere.
And nicotine is a big part of the problem. Cigarettes and smoke inhalation equals carcinogens. But cigarettes use more chemicals, like nicotine, to create lifelong smokers by making it an addictive habit.
