How Do Co-dependent People Behave?
Co-dependents have low self-esteem and look for anything outside of themselves to make them feel better. They find it hard to “be themselves.” Some try to feel better through alcohol, drugs or nicotine - and become addicted. Others may develop compulsive behaviors like workaholism, gambling, or indiscriminate sexual activity.
They have good intentions. They try to take care of a person who is experiencing difficulty, but the caretaking becomes compulsive and defeating. Co-dependents often take on a martyr’s role and become “benefactors” to an individual in need. A wife may cover for her alcoholic husband; a mother may make excuses for a truant child; or a father may “pull some strings” to keep his child from suffering the consequences of delinquent behavior.
The problem is that these repeated rescue attempts allow the needy individual to continue on a destructive course and to become even more dependent on the unhealthy caretaking of the “benefactor.” As this reliance increases, the co-dependent develops a sense of reward and satisfaction from “being needed.” When the caretaking becomes compulsive, the co-dependent feels choiceless and helpless in the relationship, but is unable to break away from the cycle of behavior that causes it. Co-dependents view themselves as victims and are attracted to that same weakness in the love and friendship relationships./

Tobacco use, especially smoking, is the #1 cause of preventable disease and death in the U.S. The good news is that the benefits of quitting smoking begin to occur within 20 minutes of the last cigarette smoked. Secondhand smoke is known to cause cancer and is responsible for approximately 3,000 lung cancer deaths in nonsmokers each year.

Researchers have long known that nicotine has a beneficial effect on reducing the symptoms of schizophrenia. Over 90% of schizophrenics smoke. Our guest Helen Redmond discusses the benefits of e-cigarettes as a safe nicotine delivery device for schizophrenics. Redmond is the author of the article Here’s Why We Should Give E-Cigarettes to Mentally Ill People.
A group of 47 independent small business owners that own retail vapor establishments located throughout New Jersey and sell electronic cigarettes have formed the New Jersey Vapor Retailers Coalition in order to oppose the tax proposed by Governor Christie on electronic cigarettes in his proposed budget. The Coalition is being represented by national public affairs firm MWW Group and the coalition counsel is Edward J. Albowicz, Esq., Counsel, Wilentz, Goldman & Spitzer P.A. of Woodbridge, NJ.
Governor Christie’s budget anticipates $35 million in revenue by enacting "tax parity" between cigarettes (currently taxed at $2.70 per pack) and electronic cigarettes, which can be used to deliver nicotine in a water-like vapor.
Ryan Bunting, owner of e-Volution Vapors of Somerville, NJ, a member of the New Jersey Retailers Coalition, will discuss the negative impact this tax can have on his business and why fellow small business owners have formed this Coalition to oppose this tax.
