We know it’s not good for us; we know it might get us sick or dead; we know we smell because we use it; we know it’s a bad habit; we know most people don’t like us to do it next to them…
But then again – We still do it! Why?!
People start smoking because they are curious. They want to know the effect on other people, why they use it, and can’t stop when they want to.
Does it really make us feel better or calmer? Will it really make us a part of the group if we use it?
We know the answers. When we are kids we think we should do what the other friends are doing and we smoke to be a part of the gang.
When are older, we think it might help us with the stress we experience in our lives.
Then it becomes a bad habit we can’t get rid of.
Sure the tobacco is addictive, but isn’t that another lame excuse?
When you want to stop something you do it. When you feel pain you stop doing what ever it is you do even if you like doing it because you don’t want to get hurt.
So why is it so hard for us to stop smoking?!
In order to stop, but really stop we need to decide we really want to do it. Not because our spouse asked us, Not because we just want to see if we can stop, Not just for a few month.
We need to decide we do not want this habit!
After we did that we can get to the next stage which is to stop.
If you are a heavy smoker try to reduce the amount of cigarettes first, until you completely stop.
You can also use some methods to help you when you feel like you must take a cigarette.
• Put mustard seeds on the lungs and tape them with plaster, also rub the spot.
• Every time you have the urge to smoke, put some salt of the tip of your tongue. Repeat for 1-2 month.
• Try nicotine products, such as: gum, drops, tapes and more.
Be healthy and smell better!!!
