16 common Smoking

Prologue

Warning about length (wink). This story is going to be long, really long, because there is no other way around it. There are no miracles and quick fixes as far as smoking is concerned; you need to learn the truth and the truth is always hiding behind facts, waiting for someone to discover it. The truth is hard evidence and not cheap, short one line sentences like smoking is wrong for you, or smoking kills. They are true but the smoker’s mind, like I was eight years ago, doesn’t click with messages like that. If you are a smoker, and you have a genuine interest in quitting, read this story from top to bottom.

From 1993 until 2009, I was a cigarette smoker. It started with one cigarette in 1993 and just before I quit, I was smoking 40 cigs a day! And when a student in Greece, I was smoking easily four packs a day!. The only time I wasn’t smoking was when I was sleeping, and I was asleep in a room where I smoked the rest of the day.

You could see the ceiling had a yellowish color; that’s the color nicotine becomes when oxidizes. I am telling you these things so you understand that if I managed to quit, you could stop, too. This article is part of a series with smoking as its central theme.

I have some others on my blog; my latest was How to Quit Smoking Forever, where I briefly touch on the method someone must use to have a high rate of success of stopping. It was the way I used to quit smoking, and this year, in May 2016, I will be smoke-free for seven years.  I mention in my Smoking chapter of my first book, an autobiography basically, every time a year goes by with not even a puff, it’s a cause for celebration because seven years ago, I took my life back; I escaped the prison called Nicotine Addiction.

Do not kid yourself, my fellow readers, and especially those who smoke, I was a junkie, I was a drug addict, and my drug was nicotine. The fact that is legal to purchase freely anywhere doesn’t make it any less of a drug and me back then and you today a drug addict.
