Every man knows that whenever he feels nervous, he starts smoking. Now, smoking cannot help in any way, but it diverts your mind from nervousness.
Only nervous people smoke. And you can watch… some days you smoke more, some days you smoke less. The days you smoke more are the days when you are very tense, worried, very much in anguish. The world is too much. You are feeling so nervous that you want to divert your mind to something, something uncomplicated, something not involving anybody else — because that could bring more complications.
When you are not nervous — when you are feeling happy and blissful and joyous — you completely forget all about cigarettes.
Smokers spread their unhealthy habit to others who do not want to be associated with it in any way. It is unhealthy not only for smokers, but passive smoking can be deadly as well.
All smokers are addicted people, so addicted people are in the majority in the world.
And there are other substitutes. You may not be smoking and you may think, “I’m not an addict because I use chewing gum.” And it is worse than cigarettes — for when you are chewing gum you are engaged in an activity which is absolutely useless, non-creative and an act that is unnecessarily tiring your mouth and your teeth.
I hate people spitting gum on the pavements…it sticks to your footwear and is abhorrent as you have a tough time taking/washing it off.
Do you need this diversion?
