You can make the world a better place.
The Psychology of Smoking
Ask every smoker out there to tell you how they began their smoking journey and what you'd hear ninety percent of them say is that they were introduced to it by a friend.
In fact according to research, when most addicted smokers smoke for the first time, they are usually irked about it.
The smell, the way it chokes their throats and the type of feeling it leaves in their body system after they take it for the first time usually leaves most people nauseated and they wouldn't want to go back to it.
But this is where the role of those friends come in. At this point that they begin to persuade the person back into it by telling the person the benefits the person stands to gain by enjoying the process.
I strongly believe that if such a person had found a better friend during that situation, things would have been better. Such a person would have made better decisions during that situation.
That’s why this newsletter this morning is not intended for smokers alone but also for you my dear reader.
That friend of yours who is now an addicted smoker might have been better if you had shown up during those times that he was being initiated into it.
Perhaps things would have turned out better.
Moreover, most addicted smokers think that they are lonely in this world so they use smoking to keep themselves company. If they had a good friend, they wouldn't think such.
So take this as a wake up call. Our world would be a better place if only you and I make a decision to endeavor to mind other people's business instead of ours alone.
Why not make the decision to be a better friend to someone today?
If we had made this a priority before now, I am sure that the smoking menace in the world right now would be minimal and the world would be a better place.
Till we meet again tomorrow,
