In the last twenty or so years, smoking has lost the popularity that it once held for many people in nearly every demographic in the world.

Before this time, it seemed as though everyone would light up just about anywhere. You would go into a hospital emergency room and see the doctors and nurses having a cigarette in the lobby with injured and sick patients who were smoking cigarettes as well.

Some facts worth noting:

1. Smoking is the #1 cause of death in America responsible over 400,000 deaths per year.

2. If you combine poor diet, sedentary lifestyle, and obesity, it will be about 400,000 deaths per year.

Up until very recently, people have had to rely on a variety of nicotine replacement therapies, which have been prescribed by their doctor or sold over the counter. These include:

3. Nicotine gum
4. The Nicotine Patch
5. Lozenge
6. Nasal Spray or inhaler
7. Anti depressant pills like Wellbutrin which was rebranded and Zyban

The first question you were asked when entering a restaurant was “smoking or no smoking?”
