Stopping smoking is easy. What makes it difficult for some is the fact that they believe the hype about the struggle and suffering stopping smoking is supposed to cause. This hype is created by people who have tried to quit and decided to continue smoking and want it to be something else than their responsibility and choice. People might say that it was too hard, or so easy that they noticed that they “could quit any time”, they might describe a stressful time of their life that triggered them to smoke. The thing is though, saying that one thing causes another in this context is crazy. “My girlfriend was being a pain so I decided to continue eating saw dust”, the two don’t seem related but the mind works in funny ways.
