Re: Your thoughts on smoking please
I think largely the physical addiction clears, as seems to be commonly said in here, within a few weeks to months, and after that the mental componant of the addiction can last pretty much indefinately.
I don't smoke, but I have friends who do and we've discussed this quite a few times.
What it came to in the end, is that Smoking brings about lots of associational feelings of good times, and that sometimes smoking can feel like a natural componant of some parts of life. EG. Going out on the bike, or whatever.
To that end, It seems to make sence to me how people can go cold turkey for as long as they do, and then start , out of what seems to be nothing
