Smokers Stay Away! *cough cough*

31 03 2008

I know smokers who saw my article will curse me but I really need to voice up what I’m thinking. I’ve been hanging out with a smoker lately. Until now, I still don’t know what the benefits of smoking are. I know some people feel that smoking that relieve stress but I think many other things can be done in order to relieve stress such as playing games or have a drink and rest. Another theory that I’ve just found out is people smoke because they like the movements involved during smoking such as they way they hold cigarette. When they saw someone smoke, they will be tempted to smoke. But I guess this is all depends on that person’s self control. If a person is determined not to smoke, nothing can make them do it.

Thinking that smoking is equivalent to burning off your money can help you smoke less. Besides that, every smoker already knew smoking can lead to many sickness and diseases. What makes them continue doing that? Yes, I do agree some people who smoke few packets of cigarettes are still as healthy as before but do they think of the health of people around them? Being a second hand smoker has a higher risk of getting sickness than the smokers themselves. Won’t they feel guilty if their friend had any sickness because of him? These people are too selfish. I’ve even seen some parents smoking in front of their little kid. I really pity the kid. He/she is slowly killed by his/her parents. Another thing I cannot tolerate is smokers who still smoke when our environment is already covered with haze!!! As if the condition is not bad enough.

To me, it doesn’t matter how handsome a guy or how beautiful a girl is; as long as I saw him/her smoking, my impression towards them will go down to zero.

My nose is extremely sensitive to smoke. I felt as if I’ll be choked to death if I inhale anymore smoke. *cough cough*

Addiction is a very weird stuff, you can’t find a reason to smoke if you’re not addicted to it; and if you’re addicted, can’t find a reason to quit.

I have a friend who is pretty smart (but not always rational) and was a smoke hater, now a smoker. He said he couldn’t find any other tool that is as effective as cigarette to relieve stress. He once attempted to stop smoking, but an immediate fever (believed to be caused by internal detox) brought him back to smoke. He still wishes to quit smoking, but not enough motivation to have a 2nd attempt.

Fortunately the smokers around me do care for the health of others, they’ll keep the smoke from reaching my nose.

Ya I agree that addiction is the main reason why people can’t stop smoking and of course it can’t be stopped immediately or else side effects will occur. My grandmother is once a smoker too but when she thought of smoking=burning her own money, she immediately stopped smoking ever since 🙂
