The glorious and frustrating thing about life is the paradox in every situation. We know smoking is bad, but we feel so good when we do it. We know if we quit smoking, our health will improve and we’ll save money. We know if we keep smoking, we’ll enjoy the nicotine buzz, plus we’ll have no need to change, making us happier.
Feeling good is good. Feeling guilty is not. Ultimately, the long way is the short cut. Life gets easier without smoking induced illnesses. It’s a different type of buzz.
