I just don't get it. They monitor the people quitting but only in a "How are you feeling" kind of way and they do weekly carbon monoxide tests on the lungs. If decades of smoking effect all these organs then wouldn't quitting effect them also? It's not like the body goes, "Oh I feel so much better". The body only knows change - not good or bad - just change.

A woman smokes for 40 years, quits, and starts taking some pharmaceutical, and then only has her lungs checked?

How can there be a smoking cessation program with medical professionals that do not even check people's blood pressure? Maybe they do but it doesn't mention it in the article nor on their own website.

It's bizarre how something can become something other than what it is just through propaganda. Still nothing changes the FACT that addiction to tobacco AND the process of witholding the tobacco from the addiction are biological phenomenon and the latter has consequences.
