Terra's Past Letters
Hey Terra,I have started to smoke and I'm not proud of it at all. And if my boyfriend finds out he will ignore me for days and for him I really want to quit but I'm getting addicted to it now. Have you got any suggestions for me to quit?
Dear Young Smoker,
I'm glad to hear that you want to quit smoking. I just found out that a dear friend of mine (a woman who started smoking when she was a teen) has lung cancer and that is not a pleasant thing for any one to have in their future. I don't want that to happen to you!
Here are a couple of things you ought to know:
1. Nicotine is one of the most addictive drugs there is. That means that for many smokers who try to quit on their own (without outside help and support) it is VERY difficult to become a non-smoker. For some percentage of people though, especially if they are not long term smokers, they can make the decision to stop smoking and quit, on their own, very successfully.Check out this website of the American Lung Associations N-O-T (Not on Tobacco) program:
