It all starts by asking the famous question ‘Do you have lighter?’ or ‘Can you lend me a cigarette?’ and with a smile someone will, without caring about anything, openheartedly share even the last cigarette. Do you know WHY?
It’s the pain caused by the urge either to get relieve from a stressful thought or cherish moment of joy while missing a great friend. Interesting, isn’t it?
Although, smoking is considered injurious to health but the habit of sharing and caring about others is the best innate quality found in all smokers irrespective of cultures around the world. So far, nothing can replace the pleasure of visiting gregarious smoking corners and always welcoming attitudes of smokers.
Well if you have decided to quit smoking, then you should be mentally prepared to face the worst ever boredom of life i.e., missing social smoking breaks, smoke and think time, and the lonely smoke break with coffee etc. The non-smoking people are weird people indeed and it’s very tough challenge to be friends with them. It will take some time to adjust to new life, so don’t be afraid.
I have figured out cold turkey is the best method to quit smoking despite of all other alternatives available today. Cold showers can help to increase will power and fight against withdrawal symptoms. At the time of urge, develop a habit of taking deep breadths and sipping water from water bottle to diffuse momentary stress.
