The Little Online Book of Quitting Smoking

The smoking experience

Different people will describe the experience of smoking cigarettes in different ways. Some people think of the smoking habit as an annoying voice in the back of the mind; "go on, have a cigarette, one won't hurt". Some people notice it as more of a feeling like hunger or thirst. Others experience the smoking habit as a comforting feeling. How do you know when you want a cigarette?

Have you ever been to a party or gone somewhere isolated where you've had to worry about where you are going to get your next cigarette from? Some people can experience the smoking habit as being a hostage to cigarettes.

Some people describe smoking as being like a friend. But let us ask you, in what way does smoking have friendly attributes? It makes you unhealthy, unfit, uses up your money, makes you smell constantly of smoke. Would a true friend do this? We're not trying to browbeat you here, just trying to make you analyse exactly what makes cigarettes your "friend".
