“Black Prince tobakksreklame” is a cigarette advertisement from 1949 from the collection at the Museum of Trondheim, Norway. Accessed 16 July 2014 from Wikimedia Commons.

Seventy percent of all active nicotine users wish they had never startedand about half tried to quit once in the last year. The negative health implications of tobacco use are well documented and the social acceptance of the practice is waning. Despite all of the awareness and the multitude of obvious reasons to quit, most who try find it an exceedingly difficult proposition that often ends in failure. Why does this natural herbicide have the ability to control our minds to the point that we will consume it despite the fact that it is a poison that slowly kills us? Join Line One host Prentiss Pemberton and guest clinical psyclologist Dr. Ron Ohlson as they discuss the psychological challenges of overcoming nicotine addiction.
