"Tobacco is medication for pain. It may not start out that way for everyone but over time we all slowly begin to rely on tobacco to ease the pain of life. Before we realize it, we are addicted."
"When we stop smoking we begin to experience our feelings more fully. This can be uncomfortable at first but can also be a time of incredible growth and self awareness."
