We all know the dangerous risks of smoking. Well documented research has proven over the past 40-years that cigarette smoke is the major cause of cause of heart disease, bronchitis, emphysema, aneurysms, and stroke, which contributes to 440,000 plus deaths each year.
Yet, over 48 million Americans and 1.2 Billion people worldwide continue to smoke. You may have thought about, or tried quitting before only to be defeated by the overwhelming urge to light up. Smoking is not an inborn, inherited, or natural urge, so why do people smoke?
People start smoking for a number of reasons, because of peer pressure, to imitate an idol, or because they think it makes them look important, grown-up, or sophisticated. Some will say they started smoking to be sociable, others will tell you they were influenced by their parents who smoked, many may say they simply don't know, or that they just stumble into the habit.
However they began, one thing is clear. Once formed, smoking is a hard habit to break. (Just ask our Commander-in-Chief) Nicotine is a highly addictive substance which acts upon the central nervous system (CNS), which stimulates it and produces a quickening of brain activity, that creates a feeling of nervousness and excitement.
Scientists estimate that nicotine is more addictive than cocaine, heroin, or alcohol, which make smoking one of the most difficult addictions to break. As a former smoker, I have created an ebook on how I was finally able to kick the habit and have remained smoke-free for 27 years. Check out my story at www.mondaymorningmethod.com
