You’re A Social Outcast



My first reason might seem harsh but bare with me here because I want you to think about this. When you smoke, who are you smoking around? Other smokers, usually outside or in a smoker designated area. Usually, this isn’t a nice place to be. it’s filled with litter, fumes and there are unpleasant liquids covering the floor. As well as this if it rains, you’ve got a problem because the addiction means you need to fuel it. You’re just going to have to go out and get wet. In the civilised world smoking has become more and more unacceptable. There are ads on TV showing second-hand smoke killing babies, and you can forget about hollywood embracing the addiction. Even fictional characters aren’t allowed to be shown smoking on TV anymore. This is the world we live in. It’s a world telling you to quit. Or, at least move on to something more acceptable.

There Are Other Options

If you do decide to finally throw your cigarettes away, you don’t have to quit for good. You can get an electronic cigarette. Unlike like normal cigarettes, e-cigs are socially acceptable. You’ll be able to smoke it in restaurants, clubs, pubs and a number of other different places. You’re no longer the social outcast. Come inside out of the rain into the warmth with the electronic gizmo you hold in your hand. Did I mention eliquids come in a variety of different flavours so you can pick your poison? You can!

You’re Being Punished For An Addiction

If you continue to smoke cigarettes, you might not like what you see. In some places, cigarette producers are being forced to put pictures of diseased lungs on the packet. The packets are also now plain and rather boring in most places including Australia. You will no longer look cool pulling out a packet at a party. In fact, the picture on the front may well make you hurl. It’s not a pleasant sight, and it’s hard to ignore that this is your future if you keep smoking.

The Facts Haven’t Changed

It took a while for cigarette companies to admit the connection between smoking and cancer. But now it’s out there for everyone to see. While there are smokers who live to be hundred, these are the exception, not the rule. If you continue to smoke, you’ll be playing the odds on a tilted board. It’s game you’re not likely to win.

Or, you know, something a little less expensive but just as impressive. You’d be amazed by how much money you’ll have to spend if you kick this addiction. Just do the math and work out how much you spend on cigs each month. The numbers don’t lie.

Have I convinced you it’s time to quit? Then start throwing away those packets and get healthier today.
