What A Cigarette Is

Let me introduce myself. My name is Peter Gray and I smoked 30 cigarettes a day for nearly twenty years.

Now I don't. And that was because I won this fight many years ago.

Dead CigarettesAfter my moment of truth - when I was forced to accept that I was an addict, not a free man - I knew that this fight was the most important fight of my life. It took me eighteen months to kill the desire to smoke. And that is the key. Smoking is, above all, an emotional problem, a habit, not so much an addiction.

The method I used to become a free man again was almost identical to this. I say almost because what took me a year and a half could have taken much less. Weeks or even days.

There is no drama or special supplements in this method. No 'will of iron' is necessary. And above all there is
no fear. (One of the biggest problems for most of us is our fear of change.)

It is a guide to your enemy. I suggest that you look into this.


What A Cigarette Is

What is a cigarette?

A cigarette is a scientifically designed drug delivery device that is engineered to deliver nicotine to the brain in seconds.

(This comes from Dr Jeffrey Wigand, a tobacco company insider who went public with the truth.)

So, what exactly is in a cigarette? What goes into your body when you smoke the thing?

Well, the three biggies are –Van Gogh picture

Nicotine – a fast-acting drug that creates one of the most powerful addictions known. Its natural function in the tobacco plant is to kill insects. It works very well. That’s why it’s used as a cockroach poison.

Carbon monoxide – a poisonous gas that replaces the oxygen in the blood. The higher the concentration, the quicker you die. Also known as SHWO – Sad Housewives’ Way Out – because in the old days town gas contained quite a lot of carbon monoxide. You can imagine the rest.

Tar – that black sticky stuff on the roads. Definitely not designed to live in a human body. But if it is inside you, it will hurt you. And hurt you bad.

The tar itself is a disgusting mixture of things you should know about –

Acetone – also used as paint stripper and as nail varnish remover. You know the smell.

Ammonia – In cigarettes, ammonia compounds speed the delivery of nicotine to your brain. They also distort the tar measurement of cigarettes, giving artificially low readings. "Lite" ain’t so lite.

Arsenic – Yes, really.

Butane – Cigarette lighter fuel.

Cadmium – as used in car batteries. A poison so deadly, and which biodegrades so slowly, that it is a
particular hazard to the environment. Cool! You’re still a threat after you’re dead!

DDT – another mass murderer of insects. Why do you want this in you?

Formaldehyde – Used for preserving dead bodies. Which is rather ironic, don’t you think?

Hydrazine – Rocket fuel, would you believe?

Hydrogen cyanide – Now we’re really getting down to business. Used in gas chambers. Tell us before you
go. What terrible crime did you commit to deserve this cruel and unusual punishment?

Methanol – more rocket fuel!

Phenol – Gotta love this one. It’s used for disinfecting toilet bowls. Say no more.

Propylene glycol – anti-freeze

Toluene – an industrial solvent. That means it dissolves things. Including you.

Vinyl chloride – Plastic. No comment.

Other things are there to 'taste nice'. For example, coffee extract, sugar, vanilla, cocoa, menthol, oil from
clove stems, caramel and chlorophyll.

By the way, when cocoa burns, it produces bromine, another charmer. Bromine is an agent that dilates the
airways. Wider airways, more smoke every puff. More smoke, more nicotine.

Menthol is not there for the taste, either. It numbs the throat. So you can inhale better.

What else is in tar? Radioactive polonium and lead, that’s what. To be precise, lead 210 and polonium 210.

Polonium 210 was famously used not so long ago by the KGB – the Russian secret police – to kill a
dissident in London. It worked.

So, ask yourself. Why am I inhaling radioactivity? What’s in it for me? What’s in it for my family?
