Jane Brody writes and excellent article on quitting smoking for good. Just what the doctor ordered. It is a balanced discussion about the facts of quitting smoking.
I especially enjoyed reading her explanation of what smokers describe as the relaxation provided by smoking. This is a lie, because stress is really caused by the nicotine withdrawal and not by any other perceived cause of stress. This is one the truths that smokers need to fully understand before become free from nicotine addiction. The perceived advantages of smoking are really perpetuated by smoking itself.
