Smoking Kills More Alcoholics than Alcohol

Addicts will argue that you don't get arrested for smoking as they do for drinking and drugging but it's the smoking that is going to kill them. Nicotine is usually the first addictive substance an addict will use and it is usually the last one that they give up or dying trying.
It time to realize what smoking is---the most harmful addiction, worse for the health of an individual than any other substance. Substance abuse centers will have an addict stop all addictive substances even caffeine but will let smokers continue to indulge in their nicotine addiction. Smoking kills more alcohols and drug addicts than their primary drug of choice. It's time to make health insurance companies pay for cessation programs and medications, just like they do for other addictive substances.
