Throughout the entire history of humanity, the most uncomfortable and at the same time most fascinating subject for people has been â€“ death. Whoever says that they are not afraid of death is lying, simply because it is human nature to be afraid of the unknown. In search for answers people have turned to various religions, and made their own peace with the subject and came to terms that death is inevitable.
What is very much surprising for me, and I am sure for many others (this includes smokers), is how can something that is so damaging and harmful to a personâ€™s health, and has been proven to be a direct cause of a number of illnesses that have ended lives of thousands prematurely, be so difficult to stop. As Allen Carr pointed out in his book, the way to find the answer is not by listing the adverse effects or disadvantages (even though there are none advantages).
I believe that the root cause to finding why people continue to smoke and slowly kill themselves goes further than popular misconception about smoking being a habit or a lack of knowledge (that majority of addicts have) about the drug that is consumed continuously (nicotine). I believe that somewhere deep down for every smoker, the root is death. Could it be that the answer is so simple, that people just simply want to know what is going to kill them. Almost every single one will say they want to stop at some point in the future, but the truth is that we will never really know what the future holds; no one can promise tomorrow.
You canâ€™t bring back yesterday, so live today like there is no tomorrow. Or perhaps there is no today or tomorrow, there is just life that can bring you tears and joy. Just remember that you donâ€™t need to continuously poison yourself while you are living it.
