In my previous post, Princess Chelsea attempted to rationalize her cigarette smoking to her lover by saying that she only smoked a couple of times a week, and could quit anytime she pleases. She wasn't willing to quit smoking even when she knew how much it negatively-affected her relationship.
Unfortunately, that type of behavior is nothing new. It's been going on for decades. Many smokers fail to realize that their behavior is due to their addiction to nicotine, and often attempt to rationalize it as personal choice. What they're really choosing though, is to live in denial about their addiction.
And how powerful is a nicotine addiction?
Even though many male smokers know that long-term smoking can make their meat loaf, nicotine is still powerful enough to overcome the forces of love. Some militant smokers will even refuse to try to quit smoking no matter how serious the repercussions, or how much a loved one tries to intervene on their behalf. But, don't just take my word for it.
