Yes, smoking is a harmful habit and makes one addicted once they start doing it. However, what are the reasons why people still continue to smoke? These people know the harmful and if long term, even life threatening effects of smoking but it seems nobody heeds the warning.
The number of teenagers smoking today has increased tremendously. Their parents do their best to stop them from starting the habit, however, most of them are unsuccessful. Teenagers experience a feeling of isolation. It is the time that they are confused which role to take in society. Most of them usually have identity crisis at this age and smoking makes them feel better. Once they start smoking, they soon love the feeling of contentment it brings them. Thus, they continue doing it. Peer pressure is also a great factor to this. A teenager would like to belong to a group. Being alone and no friends when you are a teenager is hard. Having some people to support you and accompany you in any social activity feels great. At this stage, teenagers feel their parents don’t understand them. Everything that their parents tell them and do is against their will. They still can’t understand all the things their parents are doing for them which are for their own good. Those who are non-smokers are often convinced by smokers to engage in this activity. Usually, they would smoke and drink overnight. Teenagers feel that if they won’t join the group, they would lose their friends and will be left alone in which they don’t want to happen. This is the reason why they continue smoking to be accepted by them. Later in life when they finally decide to stop, it becomes hard as they are already addicted to it.
There are also some people who smoke because of the nature of their jobs. Those who work in a very cold area or at sea, smoke to keep their bodies warm. At this time, smoking brings them good benefits. Call center agents and those who work at night love drinking their favorite cup of coffee and smoking at the same time while waiting for their shift at work. This is to keep them awake and attentive to answering their clients and finishing their assigned task. However, they don’t consider the long term ill effects of smoking. Smoking is addictive.
Smokers are also those who are experiencing feelings of depression. They find it hard to face the challenges life brings most especially if their problems are too hard to handle. They feel that what can make them feel better is by smoking and drinking. Yes, it is true that smoking could make them feel better but it is just a temporary feeling of relief.
