If you smoke or someone you really care about smokes, then you need to seek help to give these rotten things up and quit once and for all. Most people keep putting it off with excuses. For example, “I’ll give them up next week,” then next week comes and they say “I’ll give them up when this box is gone.” You do not even want to smoke, that is the funny part about it. Most smokers say its lovely to have a smoke after your dinner but its not, is it? That lovely dinner taste you had in your mouth just there now tastes like horrible smoke.

The interviewers are surprised because addiction to cigarettes (nicotine) has been used as a rationalization as to why it is so hard to quit smoking. The truth is, nicotine does not present the characteristics of a physical addiction. The real cause of the difficulty to simply quit smoking cigarettes is the Psychological Smoking Mechanism. If you stop cigarettes and don’t remove this mechanism, you will continue to be a smoker who isn’t smoking right now. It is the real reason why the smoker, after being off cigarettes for weeks or months, is compelled to start again.

People who are addicted to food can turn their backs on it and destroy the bad habit. So why can’t you, who are addicted to something that is actually destructive through and through? Smoking kills even worse than obesity, and you can live well without that. Whatever it costs you to do it, at least preserve your old age by not smoking today.

With modern medicine today, injuries are quickly and effectively treated. However, although the mechanical damage has been repaired, the healing process, which only the body can do, has not yet taken place. To make things easier on ourselves, we take pain medicine. After all, we know we are injured and it’s been treated, we don’t need to be reminded with unpleasant pain.

The chemicals in the medicine interfere with the pain signals reducing them so we are more comfortable. If we take the pain medication as directed, there is little chance of addiction. If the body heals in a timely manner, the pain medicine continues to help because the healing process is reducing the need for pain.
