How does smoking effect you once hooked
Once you are hooked to smoking, you will find several excuses to stay hooked. That is natural for any addict. Your mind will defend your need to obtain the addictive substance.
Imagine a cocaine or heroin addict who sells off his car or house to fulfill his addiction, the addiction is so strong that it over rules logic and conscious thinking. Smoking addiction is along the similar lines, it will transcend friendships, relationships as well as your own survival instinct.
Your relationship with smoking is more important to you than your relationship with the wife you love or your kids, whom you adore. Do you really care for the fact that they will go through all the misery in life after you have left them (when you are cut down by cigarettes?), imagine the plight of your wife when she gets you admitted into a cancer hospital and spends all your savings on a treatment which is futile.
Smoking addiction effects your stress response
You addiction fogs you so badly that you push aside all these realities which you would end up facing eventually. Every time you feel nervous about what the future holds for you and every time you find yourself thinking about how badly hooked you are itís a cinch that you will light up.
You find it easy to transcend the fear of death, fear of leaving your loved ones, deserting your wife and messing up your job, everything a sane person would avoid. You transcend all these fear or rather suppress all these fear for a greater fear, ďthe fear of quittingĒ. The addiction is so strong in you, and its normal for an addictive agent to behave this way.
Arguement of ďlife wonít be the sameĒ without smoking
Think about it consciously and you will know that this is the most ridiculous fear you can ever be wrapped in. Do you seriously believe that your life is good while you have an addiction on? This is great example of how does smoking effect your thoughts.
How does quitting smoking effect you positively
Has smoking really given you a lot of plus points to ponder about in your life, beyond the pleasure of subduing an addiction every time the craving arises. You life wont be the same after you quit, thatís for sure. It will be a lot better.
Smoking effects you daily in the most negative manner
Just think about all that you are sacrificing just to feed a filthy addiction. Itís a monster and its taken possession of you, generating hunger pangs every now and then.
You live a life of hunger and deprivation like any other addict and find pleasure in the same? Donít worry about how you life will be after you quit, it will be great. Your addiction has numbed you to the prospect of looking at how your life is right now, as an addict. Think about it, donít you live like this
This is just a small list of how your life has started to suck ever since you got addicted to sucking on the cigarettes. Itís true that a smoker starts off sucking on cigarettes and with time cigarettes suck the life out of him/her.
Is such a life really worth it? Are you really afraid of losing this life? You have got to be kidding yourself. Just know that the fear of ďlife wont be the same againĒ is just a fear of unknown induced by your nicotine addiction. Get rid of all your illusions and you will know that you donít need cigarettes in your life. Once you quit with that understanding you will not be smoking again ever. There is a beautiful life waiting for you outside your addiction. Embrace it before the cigarettes claims yours forever.
