Smoking is a bad habit if not the worst. It's true it is hard to get rid of the habit but i did it, i broke the chain smoking , cigarette lighting bonanza for 3 months, It's the same feel of curiosity when u lit your first cigarette. From the senses it doesn't taste good but as u begin to adapt u begin to like the taste and the craving gets worse. Now, the craving began from wanting a stick to not lighting it anymore and that trend went on for 3 months if not more but I'm sad to say I'm back to smoking again. It's not the act or seeing someone else smoking your favorite brand, It's more of a lifestyle for me, more like a timeout. It's tempting and it's addictive.. Do you smoke ?

You've just responded to one of my smoking questions, so you know I smoke! I did quit though it was when I was 18 (i'm 36 now) and I was pregnant with my daughter, I couldn't even stand the smell of smoke at the time due to morning sickness, so it was quite natural for me to abstain. I'm very proud of that! Although it didn't take very long after she was born for me to start smoking again!

smoking is a very addictive thing because we put it to habit. We smoke after eating we smoke when we wake up or if we are sitting down doing nothing. I smoke all the time because i work outside and can. But when things are going wrong we smoke even more like it is the cure for our problems. Kinda like a drinker. I feel sometimes like i have to have a smoke even when i just put one out. I am working on quitting but I am not ready to quit just yet and that makes it even harder to slow down. You have to want to quit to really quit.
