One Good Thing About Smoking
Unfortunately, with all that negative press about poison and people dying I think we may have thrown the baby out with the bath water when it comes to smoking. The action of smoking may have been the only time most people really focused on their breath. The long, slow inhale followed by holding it in and contemplating life then slowly exhaling it all out. Totally meditative. Try this next time you're sitting alone. Pretend you're smoking. Really. Put an invisible cigarette in your mouth and smoke it. By the time you're finished with your first invisible cigarette I guarantee you'll feel better and more relaxed. I recommend starting with three packs a day and working your way up from there.
