READ THIS SOMEWHERE AND THOUGHT OF SHARING WITH FELLOW BHW MEMBERS 10 Excuses Every Smoker Gives When They Refuse To Quit Smoking. We don’t even want to start talking about whether smoking is injurious or not, because we all know that it’s harmful. However, despite knowing this, smokers just can’t stay away from their cigarettes. While you tell them about the health-related facts and the various risks related to smoking, they would have innumerable reasons for why they just can’t quit smoking. Here are some of the common excuses that smokers give for their inability to quit smoking. 1. I Can’t Go To The Toilet Without A Cigarette “Dude,I don't feel pressure until I smoke!” – We all have heard our smoker friends say this often, haven’t we? Their mornings are incomplete if they don’t smoke a cigarette before going about doing their morning business. 2. I Don’t Smoke, I Smoke Up As if that helps! There is a certain category of smokers who only swear by “organic substances” and don’t touch cigarettes. Smoking up gives them eternal calm and (they say) they attain nirvana. 3. I Smoke Occasionally, So It’s Not Harmful This is one of the primary and, not to forget, silly excuses that people make when asked to quit smoking. Don’t be surprised if they initially introduce themselves as non-smokers. 4. My Profession Asks For It If nothing else works, you can always give the “work” excuse, isn’t it? All those looking for another excuse say that their profession demands them to drink and smoke, but in reality it doesn’t. We all know it. 5. I Am Helping A Poor Man Earn Some Money Wow! Honestly, we have nothing to say to you if this is your excuse. You might think we are joking but there are a lot of people who say that they smoke cigarettes to financially help the man selling cigarettes. So much for empathy, huh? 6. I Smoke Only When I Drink They would claim that they don’t smoke during the day, but the moment they see beer beingpoured in a glass, they are the first ones to pounce on a cigarette. 7. I Am Just Giving You Guys Company Smokers feel that they are being good friends by giving you company while smoking. Honestly, we doubt that but then this is one of the primary excuse people make for not being able to kick the butt. 8. I Only Smoke Menthol Or Clove Cigarette, And Those Are Less Harmful Than Others Don’t you feel that if you facepalm any harder, you might just hurt yourself? We feel the same when someone makes a stupid reason for not quitting smoking. 9. I Smoke When The Weather Is Nice Be it cold, rainy, breezy or a hot humid day, smokers always find a reason to connect smoking with “beautiful” weather. What’s more, they even have the list of food ready, which can be paired with a cigarette, the most common being “TEA”. 10. I Smoke Only When Someone Else Pays For It This freeloading seems to be a good reason for smokers to not quit smoking. We have even heard people say that it is a good way to keep a tab on their cigarettes. We wonder if this strategy even works!
