People have been using tobacco product for many years now and those same people have been appropriately informed that using the product is a very bad habit and it should cease. There are people out there who have been smoking and chewing tobacco for ten, twenty and thirty plus years, and are still living. People have also been trying to get tobacco products off the market for many years, but have been unsuccessful. People also lead us to believe that smoking causes lung cancer. Though, people who smoke tobacco are more susceptible to lung cancer because they are doing something that directly impacts the lungs, but smokers aren’t the only one’s that get lung cancer. So, no one has been able to definitively conclude that tobacco use causes cancer. Smoking does have, obvious minor and perhaps long-term, negative effects on the human body, but nothing proven to be, detrimental, or else tobacco products would not be available and on the open market. People are very aware of this and it takes away the need to quit utilizing tobacco for health concerns.
The truth is that most people haven’t found a good enough reason to quit smoking, because despite all the negative media, everything is alright and they feel fine. In order for a person to break the nicotine addiction, they have to want to quit for their own reason(s) and nothing else. Influence from loved ones may help, but ultimately people do what they want to do. The myth that smoking is bad, is constantly being challenged, because it’s all over the place, everywhere we go someone is smoking, our favorite actors are smoking on TV, seemingly healthy neighbors and co-workers are smoking, so smoking can’t be that bad, right! And, it’s not like people are dropping like flies from smoking. So, there is plenty of doubt, publicly displayed, that smoking is bad for their health.
I started smoking at the early age of 16, but I didn’t become addicted until around 19, and at the age of 31, I gave up smoking cigarettes. I finally convinced myself that I wanted to quit smoking for me, not to satisfy anybody else, or for any other reason. People don’t start using tobacco products because it’s bad for them, it’s a new and very relaxing effect on the body, and soon it becomes a habit. A habit of relaxing the body and putting the mind at ease. After a short period of time, the body becomes unnoticeably addicted to the nicotine rush. Then the body has to have a certain amount of nicotine. If not, the mouth watering cravings take over that drive us crazy until the necessary amount of nicotine is attained. It is really easy not to ignore the cravings, with tobacco products being so readily available, just about anywhere and anytime of the day, and they are not really cost effective at all. The key is to convince oneself to slowly eliminate the need and desire to stop using tobacco products. There are many different programs to help break the nicotine addiction, but none of them will work if the need and the desire to stop using tobacco products hasn’t been satisfied.
What if I told you that using tobacco products is not really that bad for us? The problem is that most people abuse the products or get in the bad habit of over-using the products, like a mental hobby when there is nothing else to do, which makes it harder to stop. The more nicotine that is put into the body, the more nicotine it takes to satisfy the body, hence the more time it will take to eliminate the need and desire to use tobacco products. With that in mind, make it a slow less needy and less desirable process. Find opportunities to not smoke or dip when normally used. Cut out one or even two opportunities per day or week, and maintain that routine, set daily goals. There is no need to invest in any of the expensive programs, patches or electronic cigarettes to help break the nicotine addiction. It is within oneself to use the product less and less and less, until there is no need and no desire to use tobacco products, at all. This process could take months, but as long as a progressing amount of using the product less is achieved, then it’s working. So take in some really deep breathes and be patient with yourself and you will not only stop using tobacco products, but you will eliminate the need and desire to use tobacco for the future. relx
