When it comes to the most controversial problems of the late 20th and early 21st century, nicotine addiction certainly is at the top of the list. It has been connected with big tobacco business history, civil lawsuits, increased medical health costs, cancer, special interest groups, and federal politics. There is perhaps no one in the United States who has not at one point in their lives been effected by someone near them addicted to cigarettes and nicotine.

The truth regarding cigarette smoking and the addictive nature of the ingredients within it has only been revealed recently. Unfortunately, millions of people before that had become daily users, attracted by commercials, advertisements, and glamorous movie star endorsements. This daily use by the older generation ruined the health of their children, and allowed the image of smoking as an accepted habit to be picked up by teenagers -- and the circle continues.

The New Battle to Halt the Destructive Nicotine Addiction Cycle

As many states creating new laws limiting or even eliminating indoor public smoking, and as the true dangers of smoking become more and more recognized, it has become the duty of many people to take a real look at their own lives and realize that their addiction to nicotine is destroying their life and endangering the health of others. This is particularly true for parents or guardians of children and teenagers, who have no choice as to what type of environment to live in (even if it is a smoking environment). If you feel as if you have this duty, stopping the addiction cycle is literally up to YOU.

However, do not feel as if you are alone in your physical and mental struggle to learn how to quit smoking. There are many online smoking cessation programs that will guide you through the withdrawal and provide emotional support during times of doubt and confusion. By contacting a group who also wish to remove the term "nicotine addiction" from their lifestyle, you will join thousands of people who are together taking the first positive steps towards a brighter, healthier, and smoke-free future.
