The CVS pharmacy has taken up a new policy to stop selling tobacco products. This move is expected to cost them nearly 2 billion dollars in revenue each year.
I am not a regular CVS shopper, in fact I don’t really go to any drug store regularly. But from here forward I will be taking my pharmacy/drug store purchases to a CVS store when I can! My possibly 30 bucks a year in drug store purchases isn’t much but I’ll do what I can to support this move.
I have a “no smoking” soap box that I pull out regularly when people I love are smoking and inhaling all the toxins and chemicals. As a grown person I have watched my grandfather die of emphysema. Both my grandmother and my aunt die of lung cancer and COPD. But the most disturbing was when I was a kid and I watched my great aunt’s mouth rot away from tongue and lip cancer.
It is a horrible addictive substance. The chemicals that are put in keep people addicted. People I know and love have quit. My brothers and most recently my niece Amber has been a non smoker for over a month.
I am heading up to Washington next weekend, an emergency trip because a beloved family member suffering from COPD is not doing so well.
So to sum up this disjointed post…..shop at CVS and give Amber a shout out!!!
