Tobacco addiction in recent years has become a serious problemfor more and more people. Many of us or our friends think that it’s enough for them to decide not to smoke so that they don’t do this anymore. They say "I won’t smoke from Monday," but then they return to the cigarette anyway. Then again they try to quit. It turns out a vicious circle.
Says analyst Olga Tarasova:
Smoking - This is a complex conditioned reflex psychological process, which is the cause of the so-called "Smoker's bronchitis" with lesions and narrowing of blood vessels,when the brain, heart, kidneys suffer. Sexual activity is disturbed, emotional pallor is accumulating, which leads to latent depression. It is noted that nicotine increases the concentration of blood sugar and blood pressure. It is difficult to treat and are associated diseases such as conjunctivitis, tonsillitis, laryngitis.
Smokers more likely to suffer from menstrual irregularities andinfertility. And if a woman smokes during pregnancy, then the risk of having a baby with a mental or physical pathology increases tenfold. Another possible misfortune of a smoking woman is an ectopic pregnancy.
Factors influencing the need to smoke:

- Psychological and social (habits and mindset)
- Biological - violations of metabolic processes of organs and systems.

The smoker thinks - “If I don’t smoke, I’ll feel tired”, and thinking of refusal causes stress, and over time it manifests a feeling of guilt. Motivation to refuse or reduce the number of cigarettes deleted. The reality of accepting a goal goes into the game of imagination with itself - a bright tomorrow, "we will live to see Monday and give up."
An unconscious reflex script works without time.
In this scenario, the adult decision is supported children's "desire" with provocation - everyone smokes, everyone communicates, and the behavior of the smoker is reinforced by false confidence. Deep children's mechanism causes a "virtual fairy tale of the joy of smoking". Included "pictures" of life paraphernalia - color "beauty" of things, i.e. lighters, kind of cigarettes.
