The Facts about the Causes of Smoking

Apr 25, 2008
Many people think that the causes of smoking are the same for everyone, but in fact this isn't true. The causes can vary from smoker to smoker. Another myth is that smokers continue with their habit because of the physical addiction, but this is not the case either. Some are not seriously physically addicted.

Make no mistake, Nicotone is very addictive, but it affects everyone differently. I may not have a tight grip onall smokers. Some may have a more psycological habit, thinking that smoking helps them to relax. This can alos be tough to shake off.

You need to get an understanding of what made you start smoking if you want to stop the habit. As for me, i was a silly school kid you gave in to peer pressure. I thought it was cool to have a cigarette with my friend out back of my school.

We used to have a laugh behind the bikeshed, and I have some very fond memories. I guess I associated smoking with those positive times.

When I finally decided to quit the habit, I learned that the psychological addiction was one of the worst causes of smoking. Physically I was fine. I felt a little bit anxious, but I didn't crave nicotine like some of the smokers I knew did. It was a habit, one I had trouble stopping.

I would light up any chance I could, in the morning before breakfast, after breakfast, before lunch, after lunch....your get the idea.

I was so used to smoking that it was habitual for me. That was my cause of smoking, and it turned out to be one of the hardest to break.

Now are are many tools available to smokers to help them stop the habit. For example niocotine gum is a great way to ween yourself of the nicotine addiction.

Another great tool is the Stop smoking support groups, thought ther aren't my cup of tea. I think the bottom line is to gather as much information about the causes of smoking to give you the best chance of kicking the habit. If you really want to quit their are many recources to help you.
