Ready? Let’s dive in.

Before you start diving into to these techniques, you need to understand why do we smoke in the first place. Just like you would analyze and understand the process of cooking even before lighting the gas stove. You would want to establish the facts that draw you in to smoking.

First of all we all know that smoking is a habit and personally I am against habits, whether they are good or bad. Habit means not having awareness in what I am doing, and something unconscious has become a dominating force in my life. We act unconsciously like a robot. They are bondage and I am at their mercy. I am just a puppet.

It controls our response to life’s ever changing situations; but we are repeating the same habits. Life is dynamic and open. Habits are stagnant and closed. It’s like you being in a room without windows for years without fresh air.

Our response to life has to change which means our habits must change, otherwise we don’t fit. When we don’t fit, we are frustrated, stressed and depressed. We need an escape from the present moment, present challenge. So what do we do, take a break and light a cigarette, as if after the smoke we will fit in.

But the truth is, Life s questions are constantly changing and we are having the same answers! Does it make sense? That’s when we don’t fit and we never fit in, and every time life poses a challenge to us, we need a break because we are not in the moment to respond but acting out from a habit that was created in the distance past.

Now lets understand the process of smoking.

The act of smoking is nothing but inhaling and exhaling of smoke or in other words, smoke PRANAYAMA. Just that it’s a dirty and filthy PRANAYAMA.

Since any form of pranayama will relax your mind, smokers assume that the act of smoking is giving them relaxation, giving them ideas, making them stress free, little do they realize that all they are doing is poisoning their body.
