Quitting smoking is difficult. In fact it is so difficult, millions have died because they have been unable to do so. For a non smoker, it would be extremely difficult to understand why the likelihood of a painful death is simply not enough motivation to quit smoking. Whilst the well known dangers of smoking cigarettes provide plenty of motivation for smokers to attempt a quit, it is rarely enough see quit succeed. Smokers themselves have a hard time coming to grips with this.
Smokers, almost always hungry for nicotine, will willingly place others in harms way while they get their regular and much needed hit.
There is a cold hard truth to smoking. It is a very selfish act, driven by a chronic brain disorder known as nicotine addiction. A disease that corrupts the brain and keeps its sufferers in an almost constant survival mode. Smokers, almost always hungry for nicotine, will willingly place others in harms way while they get their regular and much needed hit. Addicts will often sacrifice the well being of their own children, even if they know and despise what they are doing.
A smoker can easily find themselves at a point of such desperation for nicotine, that reason and logical thinking abandons them. This is why despite knowing their addiction is killing them, millions of smokers can not stop smoking. The junkie brain always provides an excuse for a nicotine addict to smoke.
Quitting because you should quit, be it for your own health or the health of others, is not enough. You have to genuinely want it and want it for the betterment of your own life experience. To successfully quit smoking, a smoker needs to be just as selfish when seeking the right motivation to quit.
