I've never understood why cigarette smoking is not treated with the same addiction consideration as other drugs. Quitting is as bad as getting off heroine, so why could someone not go to a rehab to quit smoking as they do heroine or other drugs.
Why could someone not go into a NA meeting and stand up and say "Hi, I'm Joe and I'm a nicotine addict.
Also, insurance companies will not always pay for Chantix and other smoking cessation products, but they will pay for the patients emphysema medication.
It's a strange world we live in.
