You think you are cool when you smoke, but you’ve got it totally wrong. Smoking is not cool, and neither are you.
You will eventually reach that point when you believe it enough to quit. The glamour of it fades. You face the reality. Do you think it’s gaining you any respect? Perhaps to the wrong people it is.
It’s a terrible, awful habit. Don’t be fooled!
Some other reasons it’s not cool:
YOU’RE STUCK DATING PEOPLE WHO SMOKE – People who don’t smoke, which accounts for 80% of the population, don’t want to date those who do. That’s just the way it is.
If you were one of them, would you want to date a smoker? I would think the answer would be NO.
So, you’re stuck dating people who smoke for the most part. That’s a pretty narrow field, even more narrow than it was before.
If you quit, you’ve opened up your world to many more potential people.
Think about it.
YOU SMELL LIKE AN ASHTRAY – Yes you do. Smokers don’t smell themselves, so they don’t understand how much they smell. But others do.
They can smell everything. They can smell you when you come inside from having gone outside.
Perhaps you’re one of those who smokes inside their house or apartment. Then you REALLY smell!
Your friends might not even want to come over because of it, or you may be too embarrassed about the smell to invite them.
It’s something to think about.
YOU’RE CONSTANTLY GOING OUTSIDE – You’re missing out on life. Perhaps you are out with friends. You’re probably going outside once every 30 minutes or more. They probably expect you to go outside.
But you might be missing out on great conversation. You never know. You never know because you are too busy going outside alone to smoke.
YOU PAY MORE IN HEALTH INSURANCE – If you smoke, expect to pay more for health insurance. Insurance companies don’t want to pay for all your medical bills.
Therefore, they charge you more per month.
You could cost them money and they know that. That’s why you’re charged more.
YOU’RE NOT KISSABLE – Nobody wants to kiss an ashtray. You ask anyone and they will tell you the same thing. It’s gross!
I’ve kissed a smoker and it almost made me gag. It tasted dirty. It’s not something I would want to experience everyday of my life.
It’s certainly not something I’m attracted to, either.
IT DESTROYS YOUR LIFE – In every way possible. It takes OVER your life. Your life will revolve around it 24/7. They will mean more to you than a lot of things.
After a while, you will be known notoriously as a smoker.
It will keep you from reaching your goals. It will allow you to do negative things in excess.
It will make you lazy. You won’t be as active as you could be.
Catch my drift?
YOUR TEETH TURN YELLOW – After years and years of inhaling smoke, your teeth will begin to have a yellowish tone to them.
It’s something that toothpaste will not be able to get off entirely. You’ll be stuck with it.
The only way to remove it is to go to the dentist and have your teeth cleaned. Eventually, after stopping, your teeth will whiten slightly, and they won’t be as gross as before.
What do they see? They see how black the BACK of your teeth are.
When you exhale, it hits the back of your teeth, turning them darker than the front. But you can’t tell because you can’t see it.
I’ve seen how dark teeth can get and it’s revolting. It’s literally almost black.
Trust me, once you quit smoking and go for a very long time and look back, you’ll think exactly how I’m thinking.
Why didn’t I quit sooner? That’s what you’ll think.
