Clues to Why People Smoke
To find a clue as to why people smoke one just has to look at the level of maturity of a person when they start to smoke. Most smokers started smoking when they were a child or young person still learning how to address their emotions. Many smokers started when they were going through puberty at a time when they were being exposed to powerful new emotions that needed to be understood and learned how to be utilised and controlled.
Why People Start to Smoke
Typical reasons for starting to smoke include: peer pressure, wanting to join in, wanting to appear adult and wanting to rebel. These emotions can be approached in a childish or adult way. Often alcohol is introduced at the same time and becomes part of the emotional process. This is why the “hand in hand” mentality develops and why some groups of drinkers seem to act more like children than adults. There is an old joke that smoking stunts your growth but in emotional terms, to some people, it does just that. An emotional attachment is forged to cigarettes. An individual learns to address a particular emotion using smoking and gets trapped; never learning any other way. A person may enter a pub and fancy a cigarette. They believe that it is because they enjoy smoking but actually they desire a feeling of being “one of the crowd” and smoking is the only way they feel they can achieve that sensation.
Craving cigarettes is far more of a psychological need than a physical need. A person becomes trapped as a smoker because of a connection between their emotions and the act of smoking; this forms an emotional dependence.
