The world would be a better place if we could make cigars and smoking habit completely vanished. I was a smoker too and I start smoking when I was still a teenager. However I managed to quit even before I graduated from my high school, and completely quit before I reach 20. Now I hate cigars and smoking. The truth about smoking is it turns one into a loser because addiction is a characteristic of a loser. Don’t agree with me? Then you’re wrong.
Smoking is a ‘deliberate’ addiction. What I mean by deliberate here is, the addiction is ‘created’ because as far as I know, unlike more stronger drugs like morphine, heroine and cocaine, nicotine by itself is not very addictive in nature. In other words, addiction towards smoking will not happen if one smoke only once or twice, unless one doing it repetitively to the point of addiction. So it’s actually an avoidable addiction.
Why do people smoke anyway? Like I said above I was a smoker myself when I was still in high school. After I quit smoking I did asked myself the above question. My answer is “I just feel like too”. Implying that most other smokers also share the same answer, I must say most smokers don’t have any real reason for smoking, and even if they do, chances are they just came up with it to as excuses to rationalize why they smoke.
Actually smoking addiction is just a bad habit and not really addiction actually. What I’m talking here is, there are already many alternatives for nicotine delivery system out there, like nicotine pills, nicotine chewing gums, nicotine patch, and even nicotine inhaler, if nicotine is what those smokers really need. But most of them chose not to switch, because of the unreasonable fear they have; they can’t imagine life without smoking!
Why the hell is that? It’s because puffing a cigar is a HABIT. If they really want to satisfy their addiction they can just use any of the alternatives mentioned above but they didn’t because for them nothing can match the ‘coolness’ of lighting a cigar, holding it with two fingers, putting the filter-end between the lips, inhaling the smoke and blowing the smoke. Believe me doing that ain’t cool; it’s stupid, and I know I was stupid too.
People said there’s no use to ban smoking because people will still do it anyway and work around it. That’s bullsh1t. Hey! Speeding on the legal road is also against the law but why people still do illegal racing there? The point is not about the banning itself, because both smoking and illegal racing are damaging in nature and people will always try to do it. However we can’t just let people keep damaging their own life without doing a thing.
