Smokers have become the constant target of advertising and pressure from public health advocates and companies selling quit smoking products. Smokers have been told that they are killing themselves and killing those around them and the only way to fix this is to stop smoking. And they have been told that the best way to quit smoking is to use an FDA approved Nicotine Replacement Therapy product or drug. Smokers have been told that they need to quit smoking or die.
No one, including and especially smokers, can deny the health implications of smoking tobacco. But even with this knowledge, many smokers still find it hard to give up their smoking habit. Many try the nicotine gum or patch or pill but inevitably go back to smoking tobacco. But why?
Many quit smoking products have nicotine and smokers have been told that nicotine is what they are addicted to. So why would anyone go back to smoking? It is quite possible that you are addicted to your habit. Smoking is more than just nicotine. It is the hand to mouth action. It is the inhaling and exhaling. It is “taking a break”.
If you have tried to quit smoking, but have failed, try changing your smoking habit. Instead of smoking a tobacco cigarette, puff on an electronic cigarette. It will allow you to continue the act of smoking without combustion. Instead of lighting up your cigarette, fill your e-cigarette cartridge. Instead of opening pack after pack of cigarettes, charge your battery.
If you want to live a healthy lifestyle, quit smoking completely. If you like the act of smoking, but not the smoke itself, try changing your habit with an electronic cigarette.
