Hi fansilawobuzhidao, I am aware that smoking is harmful to my health but I still smoke. Whenever I am stressed I tend to smoke 2-3 sticks in an instance. Whether I think too much or have problems, I usually go out of my office and smoke. I do not really know why but I guess it gives a little comfort to me. :)

Yes ,my friend,when one's pressure is large , he or she will smoke to reduce the stress.So i think you can use other method to relax yourself ,like listening music ,or have a walk outside,or talk to your good friend.Best wishes for you.

For most people it is because they are addicted. It is very uncomfortable to stop, though once they have the proper motivation they can. For me it was developing an uncontrollable, very uncomfortable coughing fit every day that lasted about a half hour per fit that got me to quit, because then it was too uncomfortable to smoke than to quit. So what made me start? I was a security guard, and not allowed to read or do anything else but to wait for something to happen. It's a very immature reason, and I was over 21 at the time. I heard some kids thinking it is still cool, which seems silly to me, but again their immaturity is getting in the way of clear thinking.

My husband is an on off smoker and he says he does it as a stress reilef. As a non smoker myself I don't really understand it. I manage to cope with stress without having to poison myself!
