This was good info! Thanks. I'm on day number 15. My coach (thru texts) thinks I should not want a cigarette at this point. I still want a cigarette. Walked by someone at the store today, they were smoking it smelled like a great dinner. Holy shit!!! Not sure I can do this. Does anybody really know how long it will be before I don't think they're yummy? I really want to quit. This is so bloody hard.

Can you provide any evidence that Carbon Monoxide is a carcinogen (as stated at 1:15 in the video)? Although CO is certainly toxic, it is not generally considered a carcinogen.
