Even if you don’t use e-cigarettes now and you don’t plan to, you still need to know the following so you never fall into the same nicotine trap:
1. Are electronic cigarettes (e-cigs) legal all over the world? Australia and Canada have banned e-cigs, classifying them as a tobacco product. Though the e-cig does not contain tobacco, those governments won’t make the exception. As far as the U.S. is concerned, National border security is confiscating e-cigs, but there is no law banning their use yet, but since they’re quickly depleting Big Tobacco’s profits, the FDA will likely step in very soon!
2. What happened to the guy in Florida whose e-cig blew up in his face, and was that a cheap version? Tom Holloway of Niceville, Florida, is still alive, but is missing half his tongue, all of his front teeth, and has permanent burn scars on his face. Contrary to what the “e-cig community” would like to believe, it was not some cheap version of an e-cig, but a faulty, over-charged lithium battery that caused the life-threatening explosion.
3. What are the side effects of nicotine? Nicotine by itself causes an increased heart rate, heightened blood pressure, narrowing of blood vessels (leads to heart attacks and strokes), gastrointestinal problems, depression, mood swings, sleep disturbances, headaches, the loss of sex drive (libido), insulin resistance, and vision problems.
4. How do you quit nicotine forever, one of the most addictive drugs in the world? (Nicotine running a close third behind heroin and cocaine) The physical addiction is actually broken in 3 to 4 days, but the cravings for the feelings that nicotine brings can take weeks, months, or even years to break, without the proper nutritional and herbal replacement and replenishment supplements (explained further in the 14AndOut nutrition chapter later).
5. Why do stop smoking pills like Chantix and Zyban contribute to suicides? Again, remember, these pharmaceutical toxins not only block nicotine receptors in the brain, but also block naturally occurring dopamine, so the patient suffers from heightened depression and anxiety, which fuels feelings of suicide and can even lead the patient to commit suicide. Never forget this advice!
14AndOut addresses the chemical addiction, behavioral patterns and rituals, and nutritional guidance, which is all knowledge and skills that are needed to quit smoking for good. By weaning yourself off poison, and following up with organic nutrients, especially “ramping them up” at the beginning! Mucuna works to level off your dopamine, and it will be discussed with nutrients later. You will be done with this horrible habit in 14 days or less. This is the most inexpensive, comprehensive method to stop smoking, and it comes highly recommended by the Health Ranger, Mike Adams the Editor of Natural News, himself.
