Quitting tobacco

From Micah in March:

Next week we’re reading (again) from my friend and mentor Mark Nichter.  He and his wife (Mimi Nichter, also an amazing medical anthropologist) have been working for decades on the problem of tobacco use- which is arguably the largest cause of easily preventable death and disease ever.  Smoking will be the cause of 1/3 of all deaths in the next 20 years, and those dying from tobacco use are increasingly Indians, Chinese and Indonesians.
