Do you know why you smoke?
Have you ever questioned your smoking that you’ve been drinking for years and have had experience quitting? Have you ever thought about why you don’t want to quit and why this action isn’t permanent when you quit? If you think that smoking gives you pleasure, creates a social environment, takes away your stress, you are wrong. Smoking is a substance abuse. With the first cigarette you drink, you can become a substance addict by stimulating the addiction mechanism. Even with a single cigarette to be smoked after quitting, the substance abuse mechanism is stimulated again and smoking can be started again.
If you smoke, your child is likely to smoke in the future.
Children who grow up in a smoking family environment subconsciously normalize the act of smoking. The fact that smoking is constantly being smoked in every environment, in every emotional state, causes your children to memorize these behaviors like a computer hard disk. Although the level of consciousness knows the harms of smoking when they reach adulthood, the subconscious shows the act of smoking as a panacea, a relaxing behavior that gives pleasure.
Your children, who you are role models as parents, begin to experience stress about subconscious and conscious behaviors when they become adults due to the behaviors they see from you. Every experience of quitting ends in failure. On the one hand, the normalization of the act of smoking from your subconscious and on the other hand, the strengthening of the substance abuse mechanism with each cigarette smoked causes your smoking cessation to create stress in you. These people need to be given a good subconscious cleansing.
If there is no smoker in the family, the subconscious is clean

The subconscious of these children has not normalized smoking. On the other hand, even smoking to try one in the circle of friends triggers the mechanism of substance abuse, after which the desire to drink the latter arises. With the mechanism of substance abuse, the first cigarette smoked has fallen into the trap. Over time, you become addicted to smoking. Smokers in this group can easily give up smoking when they learn how cigarettes are addictive and harmful.
