They say nicotine is more addictive than heroin. It's probably true. Ever seen someone quit smoking? The spaced out reaction times, edginess, and full out rage has to be seen to be believed. A nasty business.
And while cold turkey is brutal, the alternatives aren't too much better. Cigarette cravers are either covered, small pox style, with nicotine patches, or chomping that expensive and ineffective gum like cows in a cud chewing competition. Until now...
This could be the quitter's alternative. Ever heard of snus? This smokeless Swedish tobacco product combines a nicotine punch without the nasty spitting and mouth cancer risk of the chew. One little packette tucked into your favorite quitter's mouth quiets their grating nerves. And there's no smell, no chew, and far less risk (let's face it: there's no buzz anywhere without risk).
Order a sample pack for the quitter in your life. It's shipped from Sweden, but it's still far cheaper than the aforementioned patch or obnoxious gum. Read more about it at www.northerner.com. It'll make quitting for 2009 easier for everyone.
