Addicted to Addicts: Survival 101

Addicted to Addicts: Survival 101 – Is Smoking an Addiction or Just a Habit?

Tobacco has been around a long time. In the past 10 to 20 years it has been discovered that Big Tobacco consciously added addictive properties to cigarettes since the 1950s in order to keep “lifetime” customers. Many experts believe that nicotine causes more dependence than any other drug including alcohol, cocaine, or heroin. What do you think? Do you smoke? Do you believe you have an addiction or just a habit?
This week’s topic is Smoking. Denise speaks with Eddie Salen, of Diversified Intervention Group, a non profit organization dedicated to helping addicts get on the road to recovery in an affordable way. The organization is a 501(c)3 non-profit accepting donations for this cause.
