Our fatigue is often caused not by work, but by worry, frustration and resentment.”

One of the most common and destructive  habits that people get caught up in certainly must be the habit of worrying. By worrying about something, we are more likely to think of reasons to take actions and be motivated to do something. But, what happens nowadays, indeed people get too attached to their burden sometimes which often takes away their joyful moments.

Worry is nothing else but a form of fear, right? If we worry only about things that are actually going to occur, and if worrying always helped us deal more effectively with future problems, our ability to look ahead would be an unmitigated blessing. But, mostly worrying is unnecessary. Most of the things that we get anxious about never actually happen, and, when they do, the events are rarely as bad as we imagined. And even when our fears come true, worrying in advance rarely helps us cope with them. But, if worry is often useless or, worse, maladaptive, then why do people worry so much? Actually people are plagued by anxiety when it is not helpful at all to solve the issue. It’s a common belief that smoking is an upshot to relax mind. But the truth is, “Nicotine” can accelerate anxiety symptoms & make them worse.

Usually, when something is bothering you and you don’t do anything about it or don’t know what to do with it, it will keep bothering you indefinitely. And that sucks, to put it simply. So, it is important to find ways to express your feelings. If you don’t talk about your problems, you may find your pent-up tensions or feelings burst out in a way that is embarrassing or inappropriate. It can be hard to talk to people about how you feel. You may be worried that they won’t take your feelings seriously. You may also be worried about what will happen after you tell them your problems. But, you don’t have to deal with stress alone! Share your feelings with friends, family, and other important people in your life who are able to support you in staying smoke free. Your feelings can get validated. If you talk to a professional (may be your worries are about money, mental health, physical health or whatever – select appropriate specialist), you have a good chance to get helpful advice. If you are waiting for a miracle to happen, you are not improving your success rate. In this way, you are just feeding your anxiety!

Never choke your mind out of unpleasant thoughts. Remember; Smoking is a habit that drains your money and kills you slowly. So, “Smoke away your worries, not your lungs”. It will hurt, will take time, requires dedication & sacrifice but, difficult roads always lead  to beautiful destinations.
