Description: 
Children and teens are easy targets for the tobacco industry. They're often influenced by TV, movies, advertising, and by what their friends do and say. They don't realize what a struggle it can be to quit, and having cancer, emphysema, blindness, or impotence may not seem like real concerns. Children and teens don't think much about future health outcomes.

Physical Withdrawal Symptoms

Description: 
What Sort of Withdrawal Symptoms Will I Have?

Most smokers have 2 types of addiction: the physical and the psychological. When trying to break your physical addiction to nicotine, withdrawal symptoms can occur. Fortunately, they are only temporary. They are usually the most prevalent during the first 2 weeks and are pretty much gone within a month. And although withdrawal symptoms are uncomfortable, they are minor when compared to what tobacco does to your body.
