The Nicotine Delivery Business

Back then, it was all about chemically manipulating the nicotine content contained in tobacco.

Project Quit | Arizona

People from all walks of life use tobacco, and trying to quit tobacco is a struggle for everyone.

Recently, four courageous people made a commitment to quit using tobacco and kick nicotine to the curb. So, Project Quit tracked their progress for 30 days and filmed their unscripted stories.

Project Quit is a community of Arizonans determined to quit using tobacco. These tobacco users generously shared their intimate feelings, emotions, and lives with us throughout the quitting process.

But, Project Quit is about you, too. Anyone Can Join. Everyone Can Quit. If you’re ready to quit tobacco, they invite you to join Project Quit.

They know what addiction is like. They're aware that the nicotine in tobacco has characteristics that affect people physically and mentally. In fact, they're aware that nicotine is even more addictive than many illegal narcotics like heroin and cocaine.

So, what are you waiting for? Give them a chance to help you quit.

Nicotine Is A Gateway Drug

Don't think that smoking tobacco or e-cigarettes is just a harmless endeavor to prove yourself cool to your so-called "friends". According to the gateway drug model, epidemiological evidence suggests that most illicit drug users report use of tobacco products or alcohol prior to illicit drug use.

And do you think that the corporations that manufacture these products care what happens to you? Of course not, sweetheart. You're just a tool they're using to line their own pockets. This time it's just a smoke, but what happens next time?
