Smoking Relationship to Stress
You don’t want to smoke.
You know smoking is bad for you.
You’ve tried to quit. Maybe you’ve even quit–for a while.
Why is it so difficult for you to quit?
The answer may be stress.
Smokers are, on average, far more stressed than non-smokers and smoking reduces their stress. It’s a method of stress management that helps–some. But the long-term result is not good and the risks to your health increase stress.
The key is to reduce stress and then become a non-smoker. When your stress level is lower and you have skills to keep it that way, you won’t go back to smoking after you quit. Quit once. It’s far easier that way.
