Got Poison?

Oh yeah. Tobacco products are chock full of lots of different poisons and toxins. Check it out:

“There are approximately 600 ingredients in cigarettes. When burned, they create more than 7,000 chemicals. At least 69 of these chemicals are known to cause cancer, and many are poisonous.” — American Lung Association

Oh yeah, you can do this. Quittin' tobacco's tough, but so are you. Jus' cowboy up an' ride that wild hog home. Yee-haaw.

MARCH 9 @ 11:01 PM:  

It’s my 5th day without that monkey
and I already feel the benefits.

APRIL 1 @ 1:56 PM: 

No more monkey in my life!
One month smoke free.

Then on his own wall, he continues… 


JUNE 28: 

On the 1st, it will mark four months
of being smoke free. That’s crazy.

JULY 6: 

As the days grow older, I feel
more alive than ever before,
being substance free is an amazing feeling,
hell I don’t even drink… Life is good.
