GREAT AMERICAN SMOKE OUT
Today is dedicated to my mother, Emma Mckee. She started smoking at 15 and didn't stop until it was too late. Emphysema and heart disease strangled and choked her to death at only 69. In June of this year we signed the Family Smoking Prevention and Tobacco Control Act that requires tobacco companies to dedicate 50% of the cigarette package--front and back--to warn people of the harmful effects of cigarettes on health. Bravo. But, it still isn't enough.
Today is one of my favorite days...the Great American Smoke Out. It's a day of hope. A day to start anew to kick a killer habit. It's day one. It isn't easy, I watch friends and clients try to quit the habit only to be sucked right back into it. So, today could be your day.
I recommend a five point herbal program to support your body during tobacco withdrawal: 1) nerve repair 2)lung cleanse 3)cravings 4)purifying (detox) 5)water.
The full program is on my website: www.GBHfarm.com Click on Articles/Quit smoking.
Here's to you, you can do it. Go get 'em.
