Now hold your breath for few seconds.
Two questions for my friends who love to smoke.
Do you want to smoke now?
Will you light a cigarette now instead of lighting your life?
Go on, no one is watching you.
I will be an idiot to think that I can make you quit smoking by my article. So, relax I am not asking you to quit smoking. Infact, I am going to justify your action. Interesting, isn’t it? I know why you smoke and I am listing them one by one, only for you.
DO YOU SMOKE FOR FUN?
Can’t we play GTA games or ludo for having fun? What about going out with your siblings or gossiping a bit or having fun in the kitchen by trying a new dish? But the main questionis why will we do that, now we are no longer children. Smoking is the adult way of having fun. Smoking gives you another kind of fun.
DO YOU SMOKE BECAUSE YOU ARE ADDICTED TO IT?
Let’s not act as a liar. You always knew that smoking is addictive, still you didn’t take a back step. Great! It has become your best friend now? Why do you now need a passion to live for? All you need is a cigarette. Am I right? Ask a person to stop smoking and we get the most expect reply, which is ‘I am addicted.’ As if this answer indicates that they want to quit smoking but are helpless!
DO YOU SMOKE BECAUSE YOUR FRIENDS DO IT?
So you consider yourself as a social smoker? Cool tag. Are you trying to increase your bonding with your friends by smoking? Does that mean that you are trying to break your bonding with your family by smoking? You can’t make everyone happy. So, pleasing your friends are way more important than pleasing your family. I can completely understand that and isn’t it difficult to fight angainst peer pressure? Fighting against parents for smoking is simply fine.
DO YOU SMOKE TO CONTROL YOUR WEIGHT?
So, you are a lazy person who is obsessed with food. You don’t want to exercise and need a shortcut to maintain your weight? Wow, you have found one. Keep smoking, lose weight and your lungs and your life.
DO YOU SMOKE TO LOOK COOL?
Smoking to look cool means you smoke to please other. Did you receive your medals yet? It feels good when people around you think that you are damn cool and claps for you. You have a point to smoke.
DO YOU SMOKE TO RELAX?
Everyone needs rest from the highly stressed and pressurised life. So smoking is a way to feel better. What about sharing your emotions with your family and friends? What about hearing a bit of soothing words from their mouth? It doesn’t work? The rising smoke provides more relaxation than the constant chatter of your close ones. I agree.
Did you realize that
- I have justified your action of smoking?
- You are actually a fool?
- You can only give stupid excuses for your stupid action?
- You don’t need to smoke?
