To quit smoking or to continue smoking, which is safer?

Post by SamCogar on Thu Dec 30, 2010 7:08 pm

The Surgeon General has stated several reasons why you should quit smoking, to wit:

Caution: Cigarette Smoking May be Hazardous to Your Health (19661970)

Warning: The Surgeon General Has Determined that Cigarette Smoking is Dangerous to Your Health (19701985)

SURGEON GENERAL'S WARNING: Smoking Causes Lung Cancer, Heart Disease, Emphysema, And May Complicate Pregnancy. (1985-)

SURGEON GENERAL'S WARNING: Quitting Smoking Now Greatly Reduces Serious Risks to Your Health. (1985-)

SURGEON GENERAL'S WARNING: Smoking By Pregnant Women May Result in Fetal Injury, Premature Birth, And Low Birth Weight. (1985-)

SURGEON GENERAL'S WARNING: Cigarette Smoke Contains Carbon Monoxide. (1985-)


Now if you want to quit smoking the following Prescriptions claim they will help you stop smoking .. but is it safer to continue smoking than to take these medications?

Side Effects of Nicotrol NS
With the nasal spray, nicotine is inhaled through your nose and passes into your blood stream. This nicotine takes the place of the nicotine you would otherwise get from smoking. In this way, the withdrawal effects of not smoking are less severe. Then, as your body adjusts to not smoking, the use of nicotine nasal spray is decreased gradually over several weeks. Finally, use is stopped altogether.

Children, pregnant women, and nonsmokers should not use nicotine nasal spray because of harmful effects.

Chantix is a bona fide miracle drug. And the weird dreams? Beautiful, living color. I miss the dreams.

Chantix made my father-in-law hear & see things......while awake. He became paranoid and afraid to be alone, all in less than 10 days. I'm all set.
