Habit and Addiction
Considering the fact that most smokers in their heart of hearts would like to give up there must be other factors at work preventing these people giving up smoking. These factors are habit and addiction.
Various ?experts? on giving up the weed have attempted to divide up the amount of physical addiction and mental dependence on smoking. Some believe that reliance on cigarettes is mainly in the mind, others state that it is actually in the brain (i.e. their body's addiction to the nicotine in tobacco).
Unfortunately, the study of giving up smoking is not an exact science, therefore no one can say for definite that quitting is 10% mental and 90% physical or vice versa. However, we can be sure that both addiction and habit are responsible for our reliance on cigarettes. Although it is extremely difficult to separate these two causes--because the human being is a complex creature and there is a fine line between MIND and BRAIN in our understanding--it is helpful to go some way towards identifying the reasons why we continue to smoke, knowing that the odds are stacked against us. Therefore in order to try and understand why we smoke and thus give up, we have to be able to examine these two issues separately.
