Logically we all know smoking is dangerous. We’re becoming more aware of the harmful effects of cigarettes from the anti smoking campaigns. We all know they’re bad for your health and of the many poison chemicals inside. Logically we know all this but we are not logical beings such as robots. We are human beings with emotions, habits and beliefs, good and bad.
Sometimes there may be a conflict. “I know these cigarettes are bad for my health, the kids hate them and they cost a bomb but I’ve had a tough day, I’ll have one more and quit next week” Part of the mind knows the cigarettes are poison but another part says go on… have another. This pattern can go on for years and years. Other smokers can go weeks without a cigarette but as soon as they are out with friends or have a stressful day, they can fall back on the old habits and beliefs.
There is no one category you can put all smokers into, some smoke 20 a day, some 2-3. Others smoke when driving but not in the house. Another smoker may have a trigger of smoking after dinner or when drinking coffee.Some may smoke to relax or take a break.
Every smoker has a reason or combination of reasons to smoke, known and unknown but all smokers have one thing is common
There is some perceived benefit to smoking in the deeper parts of the mind, despite all the evidence that cigarettes are dangerous.
