I’m sure you don’t need me to tell you all the ways smoking is bad for you. I could cite studies on reduced longevity and describe the way your body gets routinely harmed by smoking, but why? This information is freely available. I’m sure you have a couple of people in your life reminding you that smoking is bad for you.
You are smart, educated, and perhaps even versed in information about ways to keep your body healthy such as eating your vegetables and exercising regularly. You know you should quit, but you find all kinds of excuses not to. I hear often how people are going through a stressful job situation or their family is experiencing difficulties. Surely, right now is not a good time to quit, you tell yourself. There is a different part of you that says it is. You know why? Because the truth of the matter is that any imagined discomfort you experience as you quit now, pays off in huge loads of unbound energy, feelings of wellness, deep satisfaction of knowing you are doing the right thing and succeeding.
What are you so afraid of then? Why all the resistance to putting away the tobacco for good? Of course, we are all complex and have our own reasons we smoke. There is one simple reason under all the excuses and all explanations. If you are not ready to learn about it, come back to this blog when you are!
