Answer #1

“How to “quit” smoking?”

You can’t “quit smoking”. You CAN “become a non-smoker”.

There is a big difference in the way your mind and body reacts to the two attempts. In “quitting smoking” your mind and body tell each other that you are trying to deprive it of something it likes and needs, therefore it works hard at preventing you from succeeding.

In “becoming a non-smoker” you successfully attain your goal while not giving your mind and body a chance to perceive that they are being deprived.

Along with the above attitude change, you can help achieve your goal by having on hand some hard candy. Whenever you feel the urge to smoke simply place a piece of candy in your mouth.

Don’t try to refrain from smoking “forever”. Simply refrain for the next couple of hours.

I, personally, know that the above works. I smoked for 30 years and was up to two packs a day. I successfully became a non-smoker 22 years ago. It wasn’t always easy and I still have nightmares that I’ve started smoking again and “blown” my smoke-free record but then I wake up and am thankful it was only a dream.

The candy I used was “Gobstopper” Jaw Breakers. The lasted about 10 minutes each and effectively replaced the craving for a cigarette.

You, too, can become a non-smoker, even if you’re surrounded by people who smoke. It is your choice. When offered a cigarette you don’t say “no thanks, I’m trying to quit” but instead state “no thanks, I don’t smoke”.

Good Luck!

Answer #2

you like pizza? so they make it and you buy it…

so its a simple answer…supply and demand…

its an addictive drug…so you stay on it to create constant cash flow for that company…thats why people should quit

Answer #3

They make a lot of money. also some people are completely hooked and will freak out if they cant get more. MANY people would like attack the cigaretee company, and people would then try to make their own and whatnot.

Answer #4

Dunno about other countries but here in NZ it is taxed HEAPS. Same with alcohol. Govt taxes them, too many people are addicted so I don’t think it will stop for a long time.

Answer #5

Because government charges taxes on cigarettes…and taxes (if you have a “good” government) actually benefit you indirectly…depending on what they use it for.

Answer #6

That’s a very good question…they ban drink driving because it kills people, yet they continue to sell cigarettes which kills thousands more people each year than car accidents do…unfortunately, it’s all about the money…NOTHING more. It’s disgusting.

Answer #7

when I was little my dad used to smoke. theres really nothing you can do except suggest things; he will probably still turn them down. we begged and annoyed and asked daddy when will you stop smoking??!! for like 3 years until he was like fine ill stop if you stop… now he doesnt smoke :)

Answer #8

cigarettes can be made cheap and sold high. cigarette companies bring in a lot of tax money for the government. thus keeping it legal

Answer #9

because they can make money and because they want you to die

Answer #10

because they just want to make money
