Of course, smoking is a bad habit and, of course, it is better not to start smoking, but ... certainly there are situations when a cigarette helps. First of all, of course, in case of stress or anxiety, tobacco smoke is the best sedative. Plus at work you have to sit at the computer for 8 hours and the best way to relax and unwind is to enjoy a cigarette.
There are. If you want to die from terrible and excruciating pain, but do not know how, then you can safely start smoking. Painful death from lung cancer is assured ... or something like that.
There are no other situations.
A very nasty and unpleasant situation, but, unfortunately, sometimes this also happens.
The surest way to avoid this is to always buy cigarettes with a stock, it makes sense to shove them in bags, pockets, so that when changing clothes, do not remain without the coveted potion. But it is not always possible to control this process.
First, it is still worth looking in the bins and old storage facilities, perhaps there is still something left there. A couple of times I was looking for packs that I had bought a long time ago, put them in, and forgot about their existence.
If there is nothing left, you should calm down, breathe a little deeply, restore your breath, moderate anxiety and anxiety and try to distract yourself with something. Not for long, but still helps to drown out withdrawal symptoms. In parallel, you can get distracted and do something useful. But concentration in this state is still lost sooner or later. The body requires smoke.
And then you can give smoke. Not a cigarette, of course, but here they no longer choose, not fishlessness and cancer - fish. You can find analogs - dry hollow reeds, some grass from the ground, if living conditions allow, then you can take tea bags and roll up an impromptu cigarette. This method will help cover the psychological need for cigarettes. For a while, of course, but still.
In general, in such a situation it is better to run to the store faster or shoot someone's cigarette. Because only a cigarette can be better than a cigarette.
There are. For example, in addition to reducing the risk of Alzheimer's and Parkinson's, cigarettes are indicated for smoking in the case of certain diseases such as gout, for example.
It is worthwhile to immediately make a reservation that all the pros cannot justify smoking, because the harm is ten times greater than the benefit.
However, Winston Churchill, who lived for 90 years, said: “Five to six cigars a day ... and no exercise "
Most people consider nicotine to be the main harmful substance in cigarettes.
This judgment is partly wrong. The scientific community has long been studying the effects of nicotine on the body. The results of some studies have shown that it:
- stimulates the release of adrenaline and endorphins, as a result of which the smoker feels a slight euphoria and a surge of energy
- has a powerful anti-estrogenic effect
- rescues from depression and schizophrenia
- can have sedative effect
- reduces the risk of developing Parkinson's and Alzheimer's diseases
Unfortunately, sterile laboratories are different from the realities of life therefore, in the context of everyday life, harm can manifest more quickly than conditional benefits. Such studies are often sponsored by tobacco corporations, which already casts doubt on the objectivity of the results. But it is also difficult to refute them.
In the very process of smoking, if you wish, you can also find advantages:
A quick way to relieve stress and distract from thoughts
Smoking is a powerful social bond. By lighting a cigarette, we automatically classify ourselves as a very large social group of smokers. Smoking together brings together and relieves the atmosphere.
In general, these are all pluses. Cons can be listed for a very, very long time, each of which is much more significant.
