To tell you the truth, I can't believe that the smoking industry is still finding new victims to try their products...
If I was a salesman standing outside on a street and I was trying to sell these things, it would be a pretty hard existance. I mean, the yellow teeth and fingers are hard to deny. The bad breath and smell that encompasses you is pretty annoying. The looks that you get when your smoke goes in someone else's face is almost a death wish.
Of course, I haven't even really hit on the major factors like health studies. It is a fact that you are actually PAYING your own tax dwindled dollar to buy these cigarettes and shorten your life. It quite literally does suck the life right out of you.
If you have ever looked at the face of a Meth addict, it's pretty incredible. But only incredible that it does the damage to your face in only a fraction of the time that smoking does in your lifetime. You can pick out a smoker in a crowd just by the weathered skin they have. As vain as every person is about their appearance, I would think that this would be reason enough to quit.
But it isn't...
Ok, I could go on and on with lung statistics and cancer numbers but it wouldn't really make much of a difference because you've heard it all before. One could almost argue that smoking is just a way of playing Russian Roulette over a longer period of time before your time runs out. Everybody has heard this over and over again, but it still doesn't sink in.
Having had all 4 of my grandparents pass away from cancer and watching someone struggle to fight to take their very last breath as they literally suffocate to death is something that I will never forget. I wouldn't wish anyone to see that, especially from someone that they dearly cared for.
So what does it take to quit? They say that cigarette smoking is literally the toughest addiction to break. It's actually a 2 part process. You have to actually stop the smoking, and then you have to stop the patterns of smoking. It's all about breaking routines that we as people cling to as we get older.
It starts with the morning wake up cough, flem coming up and then clearing your throat with a tasty smoke. Yummy!! I'm so glad I don't get to wake up to that every morning... But throughout your morning, there is the newspaper and smoke, drive and smoke, smokebreak, coffee and smoke. Notice how there is an attachment to every single one? The one that defies me, is the smokebreak partner. You could actually HATE the person you go down for a smoke with, but as long as you don't have to sit outside and smoke alone, that's all that counts, right?
