Smoking Addiction or Habit

The Myth of  Smoking being Addictive was circulated by the tobacco companies to ‘trick’ smokers into believing they could not quit smoking cigarettes.  Smokers have been convinced that it is very hard, if not impossible, to stop smoking. In fact, two of the greatest fears smokers have around smoking are (1) fear of failure and (2) the pain of withdrawal and cravings.  There is more nicotine in ‘patches’ than there is in a cigarette!  I have never heard of anyone becoming addicted to nicotine patches, have you?  No, nor I!

Interestingly, patches actually have the same nicotine content as a pack of 25 cigarettes. Nicotine patches do not and cannot become addictive.
