Play Trivia: 20 Questions that make smokers QUIT on the spot!


Here are 20 questions that engage smokers and help them consider why they smoke  cigarettes, just what they are really smoking, and why they can’t quit. These  questions are posed to students of the one-hour class “14AndOut,” and then those  answers are reflected upon and/or corrected by the teacher and inventor of the  program, who reveals exactly how to quit in 14 days or fewer, naturally, without  medications and without hypnosis. The 20 questions invite any and all smokers to  think about the chemical knowledge associated with the addiction, consider the  most common and popular behavior rituals to change, and finally to engage  nutrition in order to “replace and replenish” a broken down digestive,  breathing, and cleansing system, so you have energy and a positive outlook when  you quit cigarettes for good.

The 20 question “smoking” trivia quiz

1. Can you name five household  chemicals in a cigarette? Most students guess three ingredients and then  they are stuck; “Tobacco, paper, and um, um, nicotine?” Some typical guesses  include pesticide and formaldehyde. One student even guessed fiberglass once.  Little do most people know though, commercial cigarettes contain a whole  boatload of dangerous products. That’s why smokers call them cancer sticks.  Cigarettes contain ammonia for super strength nicotine and plastic (cellulose  acetate) to make it burn evenly, and glass wool (fiberglass filter), not to  mention bleach and herbicide weed killer (GMO RoundUp). These chemicals combine  to give smokers a chemical “hangover” which in turn feeds the “nic fit”  (nicotine) relief for the anxiety caused by the 4,000 plus chemicals, namely the  top five listed above. Here’s a clip from the “Stop Smoking King” on YouTube:  (
2.  Why are cigarettes white? Most students have no clue as to the answer to  this simple question. Trees are brown. Paper comes from trees. Cigarettes are  rolled in white, bleached paper. You are smoking bleach. Smokers need detoxification help when they quit, especially to get  bleach and pesticide out of their cleansing organs, like their kidneys, their  pancreas and their liver. You cannot live without these vital organs. Big  Tobacco knows this. Nutrition is the “Yellow Brick Road” to freedom from the  commercial cigarette chemical “hangover.” (
3.  Besides nicotine, what makes cigarettes so addicting? Students often say  “the nicotine,” but they can’t really explain why. Many smokers light up to get  rid of their anxiety, but what’s causing the anxiety? Some smokers light up to  get some “drive,” thought boost or a little hit of confidence, but why is their  confidence lacking? The majority of smokers just smoke because they are stressed out about life and how to live it, but again, why  can’t they quit when things get “good?” The addiction isn’t to nicotine, it’s to  relief from the central nervous system overload of heavy toxins that are trapped  inside of tar, which is trapped inside both lungs, and the vicious cycle that  ensues by smoking another “stogie.”
4. How do tobacco leaves contain  poison? Smokers can’t answer this one. Most tobacco is GMO, genetically  modified in a lab, so the bug killer and weed killer is put in the seeds, then  grows INSIDE the plant, and so tobacco can also withstand more topical  RoundUp and bug/worm killer, making commercial tobacco a pesticide  bonfire of carcinogenic poison loaded up in every puff.
5. Why does it  take up to 15 years for a cigarette filter to disintegrate? Peel apart a  cigarette “butt” or filter and you will find what looks just like fiberglass  insulation. That’s right, this is glass “wool,” not some sponge wrapped up  tight. If it were just paper and say, cotton, it would break up and dissolve  after a few rainstorms if left outside. These microscopic “glass” shards collect  in the lungs and damage soft tissue called epithelial. Also known as ground  glass opacity, it shows up on CT scans: (
6.  Why do cigarettes burn so hot, so evenly and never go out in heavy wind? One student answered “the nicotine?” Actually, cellulose acetate, used to  manufacture photo film, is carefully cross weaved into the papers. That’s one  reason cigarettes don’t go out in the wind, and they burn evenly, never trailing  up one side. Consider also why cigarettes burn at 1700 degrees during inhale.  Have you seen the movie “Inglorious Bastards?” Photo film is highly flammable.  This is an “efficient nicotine delivery device” (ENDD is the acronym –  appropriately). This means you’re smoking plastic. This is not  regulated.
7. What effect do all of the chemicals have on your  body? Smoking pesticide, herbicide and insecticide, mixed with ammonia and  bleach, is definitely asking for a bad habit you can’t quit without help. Most  smokers who quit cold turkey go back to smoking within six months due to the  long depressing chemical “detox,” add in that they don’t know anything about  nutrition, and the CDC programs don’t offer any help in this arena. Organic,  more alkaline foods and water are necessary for speedy recovery and “killing the  urge” to smoke. Ask nutritionists about mucuna and maca powders! (
8.  Why do the pills, the patch, and nicotine gum fail so many? Nobody knows  the answer to this one in the classes. To make a long story short, they are  nothing like what a smoker is going through after quitting, or while quitting,  and they don’t wean you properly. The patch and the gum give you about 5 percent  of the dose of nicotine commercial cigarettes provide, so the whole quitting  system is flawed from the beginning. The pills can block your hormones and  dopamine, leading to feelings of suicide. People don’t usually like  that.
9. What government agencies regulate the potency of  nicotine? Nobody regulates it. That’s part of the problem. Even if they did,  they can’t measure the real POTENCY of the nicotine after ammonia has been added  to “free base” the vapor ready “nic fix.” Have you ever read how many milligrams  of nicotine you’re getting? Take a look on the box and the carton, there’s no  information.
10. Why do cigarette manufacturers use ammonia when  making cigarettes? For a faster hit! Ammonia-treated nicotine allows the  nicotine fix to reach the heart and the brain within three SECONDS. This is why  people like “certain brands” so much. Even e-cigs can keep someone addicted to  nicotine, and sometimes MORE of it. The stimulant relieves the smoker of the chemical hangover – the HOOK. This goes highly unregulated.
11.  Is your breathing pattern better when smoking? People say yes and no, but  the real answer is yes. About 98 percent of smokers breathe a specific pattern  when they inhale, hold, and exhale cigarette smoke, altogether different from  their typical breathing pattern when not smoking. When people try to quit  cigarettes, they quit this “ritual” which was relaxing them, even though the  chemicals were pouring in. The breathing ritual is ignored, and this is a  physical characteristic of withdrawal, the inability to relax, especially after  meals (bad ones at that).
12. Do you have a hand to mouth habit? Absolutely you do. The typical pack has 20 cigarettes and figure 10 to 12 puffs  per cigarette. A pack-a-day smoker puts his/her hand to their mouth, up and  down, up to 250 times a day. A two-pack-a-day smoker is in a ritual of this up  to 500 times a day. This must be replaced with water, raw nuts, superfood snacks  and smoothies, organic chocolate, etc. There’s plenty of quality supply at the  NaturalNews store: (
13.  Is smoking a form of meditation? Some answer yes and they’re absolutely  right. Most smokers either change their environment to smoke, like going  outside, or they get away from certain people, or they join certain people to  talk about whatever the nicotine rush helps them consider. Once the nicotine is  replaced with proper nutrition and pH balance of the body, meditation is easier  and can be your “best friend.”
14. Why do most smokers enjoy a  cigarette after meals? In the 1930s, Camel advertised that cigarettes  help with digestion. They even showed doctors recommending their favorite brand,  and one ad tells you to have one in between each course during Thanksgiving. The  myth has lived and been perpetuated for nearly a century now. It’s the breathing  pattern that relaxes the smoker. Consider question 11 again here. Here’s the  unbelievable advertisement! (
15. Is  there any such thing as organic tobacco? Of course, but nobody has been  educated about the benefits here. Forget about the patch, the pills, the gum,  and wean yourself off the strong stuff naturally, without the chemicals. Buy  organic tobacco and roll your own.
16. What is the art of  breathing? Students usually say “I don’t know” to this question. Some  suggest yoga or meditation. Here’s an easy “trick” that helps thousands quit.  Put two fingers together as if you have a cigarette, and inhale, as if you were  smoking, and hold for a second or two and then exhale as if you’re blowing  smoke. Do this every time you would have had a cigarette, and for as many  repetitions too. Don’t give up the breathing ritual!
17. Why do people  often put on weight after they quit? There are many answers to this one. The  most popular ones are the lack of the stimulant, depression, anxiety and general  negativity, but the answer they don’t give is nutrition. Most smokers have  virtually given up on nutrition since smoking is obviously so bad for you, so  when they quit, they don’t change a thing. No wonder.
18. How can you  learn to hate cigarettes if you like them now? You hear it all the time from  smokers, “I hate these things!” So why don’t they quit? It’s because they really  like the relief it gives them from smoking all that bug killer and weed killer,  but they just don’t know how to explain it. Smokers often fail to replace and  replenish behaviors they like and organic food must come into play.
19.  How will you deal with the urge and with stress when you quit? Students  have no answer for this one. Nutrition is the key, but no smoking programs  really ever mention it, much less FOCUS on it, except for 14AndOut, which  recommends considering advice from nutrition experts and naturopathic  physicians. Also, watching documentaries is great for momentum and easy  guidance. Check out “Food Matters” and “Forks over Knives.” ( (
20.  What’s the main reason the pills don’t work, but makes things worse? Medications like Zyban and Chantix have worked for some, but for most it’s just  horrific nightmares and heightened feelings of anxiety. That’s right, the “side  effect” of trying to quit with medicine is a heightened paranoia of exactly what  has people smoking cigarettes all day in the first place. Needless worry,  general depression, nervousness, sleeplessness, loss of libido, this is nothing  new to smokers. Plus you now get a heightened risk of heart attacks! Who wants  to shock that into mass effect next? Not too many. (
