Helpful Hints / / August 12, 2017
Smoking I started at 20 years.By the standards of our Faculty of Geography - rather late.All the talk, and the entire student life in general, were for a cigarette.At first, I just went for the company, so as not to break away from the group.Then, in the second year, suddenly found that keeping a cigarette in his hand - it is natural, and the smoke that you inhale when smoking itself, much nicer than the one that is a pillar in the smoking room.
Smoking I started with very strong cigarettes, which were then in the sale - Cuban without filter.They were considered in our faculty particularly chic among the girls because of the sweet papers.Then in vogue long ladies' cigarettes.The subsequent 13 years I smoked a pack of times a day, or even more.The morning is usually started with a delay.And all the works to conduct a service, so intimate conversations, it was decided in the smoking room.There is talk - have a cigarette.However, it was found, and one curious fact: one leaving on a business trip to a new p
Then one day I came across an article about osteoporosis from a western magazine.It said that the fragility of the bones can be triggered by a variety of reasons, such as smoking.At the same time, seemingly as an afterthought, the author mentioned that smoking lowers the body female hormone estrogen, which can lead to infertility and also causes increased growth of hair on the body.fracture prospect I, frankly, a little touched, but the idea that the "shaggy" rise suddenly struck a chord.I suddenly realized that very much want to stop smoking.
The only thing that stopped me on the way of implementation of its decisions in life - the inevitable backlash friends.Quit girlfriends with whom which year each hour I go to the smoking room - a real betrayal and resentment for life.It was necessary to find some convenient excuse.
My friend, colleague Ole had to go to all sorts of tricks to hide from her husband that she smokes at work.Her husband, doctors have banned smoking.He asked his wife to support him and also to give up cigarettes.Therefore, it is regarded almost as a smoking adultery.
Outside it was summer.Olga was worried that while on vacation with her husband she would have to do without cigarettes.I promised her that, too, will not smoke during the holidays, so we are together for the company and cast.And after the release of smoke in the work will not.
So I went to the village to Aunt Light, girlfriend parents.Without cigarettes.Aunt Light, however, smoked, and I ask her cigarette, of course, would have treated me to, but I was able to suppress such thoughts a sense of duty.The first week smoking wanted badly, and when it became unbearable, I said to myself: "You promised Ole" - and restrained.On the second week revealed a new game instead of cigarettes - drying.They came at me like a seed, but by the third week smoking no longer wanted at all.I returned home a different person.
At work, I very first thing proudly told Ole: "I do not smoke!"She herself was smoking and did not quit, but for me was glad.In the smoking room with colleagues I went still, but the fact that I'm no cigarettes, no one hurt.Smoke me annoyed, irritated and not smokers themselves.I have always resented the people smoking in my life that, quit smoking, turned into fierce fighters with tobacco.It seemed to me that they are angry at the sight of cigarettes because they themselves want to smoke.And I was determined that nothing in the world will not behave this way.Everyone decides for itself.
Sometimes, however, there were funny situations.One day, while standing in a traffic jam on Taganka, I suddenly discovered with surprise that my hand by itself makes movements as if I offer a cigarette to his mouth and then lowered.Spontaneously.Without cigarettes.So I had a couple of months and then follow up with his hands.
Since then, it has been almost three years.It's funny, but many friends even managed to forget that I smoked.Sometimes I have an idea: do not smoke it?I'm in such cases, I ask myself: "Do you really want it?"While the answer - no.
