Reasons Why People Smoke
« on: October 01, 2009, 03:33:42 am »
Here, you will come to know the reasons why people smoke, some are really silly and funny, but these were the answers given by the people during the survey. So, here are reasons why people smoke.

1. The first reason why people smoke is to combat stress. Due to the fast lifestyle we are living lot of people get stressed and feels worked out. Incapability to perform, not able to meet deadlines, and work pressure at office leads in combination to the stress in the people. Smoking helps the nerves in the brain to relax and as a result the person feels relaxed from the stress.

2. Smoking is done to overcome depression. This was the second reason given by the people who smoke. Many people told that smoking has helped them to combat depression. People feels depressed when they are not happy about everything happening in their life. Dissatisfaction with what you have is the main reason for the depression among people. But, I really am surprised how smoking helps the people fight depression.

3. Teenagers mostly smoke just for sake of fashion because they believe that smoking is a very trendy activity and they look great while smoking. Many times this happens due to what they watch in the movies and on television, where the lead character smokes cigarettes and is liked by a beautiful lady. It is my appeal to all directors that please don’t show your lead character to be a smoker because it puts the bad impact on minds on teenagers.

4. Some people even told that smoking helps them to think better and it improves the concentration level. Yes, this is right. But, remember that it is due to this that you get addicted to it. Later on it devastates your entire health and you may even die. So, just to improve your concentration if you are putting your life at risk then go for it.

5. Some people told that they smoke just for the time pass. I think these people are not interested in living and want to end their life so are getting addicted to this hazardous habit. Smoking is the cause of the maximum cancer cases worldwide. So, if you want to die of cancer then you must smoke.

6. Some young guys even told that they smoke because it looks and feels like manly when they smoke. The men who smoke are the real men. Really a baseless myth that is being spread by the cigarettes manufacturers.

   Many such wrong reasons I found that smokers gave. But, I strongly feel that no reason is adequate to smoke because your life is in high danger if you are smoking. So, please give up the unhealthy habit of smoking today to stay healthy and live longer. Otherwise there is one benefit of smoking, that’s to die early.

For me smoking helps to think about some problems in my life.

When I have problems I smoke and I feel some relief.

I myself am not a smoker, but those very important and close to me are. I noticed Its very much a downtime type of thing, and usually after tasks. I find that interesting that most smokers link this to their habit.

I have no idea why people smoke. I had a masseuse the other day give me a massage and his hands totally smelled like smoke. Automatically triggered negative feelings and almost ruined the massage. Good thing it was at the end that I smelled it.

I myself not a smoker so do not know much about why people smoke. But according to the some knowledge that I have people smoke generally when they want to think about their plans,problems or anything related to their profession or work. It might give them some relief.
