Trying to kick the habit

Subject: chewing tobacco

I saw your tobacco news segment on television today and it really sparked my interest. See I also chew smokeless tobacco and have been doing so since I was ten years old. I know I am playing with fire because I am now 26 years old. The segment about the man from Texas (?) was real interesting for I am a high school teacher. I know you understand how addicting this type of tobacco is, but as long as the product is appealing to the younger generation this problem will continue. As for me I have been trouble free (luckily) with this habit and in a constant battle trying to quit. Speak as loud as you can on this subject because it is getting out of hand. Thank you for your time.
