Most medical doctors have a blind spot for smoking. “Quit,” they say without giving a person’s brain a true chance to quit. They think that pointing out the obvious is going to somehow extend your life. It’s usually a good idea to mostly ignore an M.D. on the topic of quitting. Better strategies come from the realm of psychology.

Try to break the craving by thinking, doing, or both things in the goal of replacing the craving say the psychologists. That something should last a few moments and it might be surprising to the addicted smoker that, once through the crucial few minutes of a craving, they might be fine again for another hour.
Smoking is an addiction and needs to be treated like one. It is much like overeating, something that medical doctors are also ignorant of the best strategies to cope.
But smokers are completely fine mentally except on the topic of smoking. I’ve even heard that smoking can improve your cognition. Smokers are able to carry out almost any job there is. The only problem with smoking and working, by a non smoker’s point of view, should be second hand smoke. And there are usually simple solutions for this.
But Dr. Oz, that blustering blowhard of daytime TV, has come down firmly on the side of making smokers into the underclass. We aren’t allowed to come down on any group anymore in our time except perhaps the doctor unapproved groups like the smokers and the overweight. I’m currently unaware of underclass actions against the overweight, but I don’t expect they will or have remained untargeted. That might be the second battle.

But Dr. Oz and his cronies have come down hard on smokers. They have or are trying to make smokers ineligible for government jobs. These scum have decided to make it unfeasible for smokers to gain employment. They say they are saving public coffers because of the increased cost of sickness and death enjoyed by smokers. They are making it more economically important for smokers to quit. Really they are taking away a smokers right to a half decent life.
This bad line of reasoning leads to a permanent smoker underclass. Are businesses stupid and haven’t seen the cost benefits of not hiring smokers? No. Once able to shirk their duty to employ fairly, they will weasel out of it just as government has been doing. And in only a few years we have the smoker underclass.

Look if smokers do not have money they can’t use any of the treatment options available to them. So drug companies and government will have no reason to come up with the cure to this addiction. So the underclass becomes permanent.
Dr. Oz and his cronies are scum to make a new underclass. I will not watch his TV show and if you wish to do the same but don’t know where to find all the health advice, find a better system online at NutritionFacts.org .
