The Living Force
Mari,Mari said:Tnx! :)
Well, my toughs are something like this;
A lot of people (myself included) smoke like all the time and everywhere; waiting on a bus, going somewhere, in the car, waiting to time passes, when working, when relaxing,.... So, every time you have free hands is a good time to have a smoke. There is even a saying from where I come form: "you are never alone with a cigarette".
So, maybe there should be a balance.
Meaning; one example (not a great one, but here we go) that comes to my mind is wizard Gandalf from Lord of the rings; he didn't smoke while they were on the quest - he was smoking after great battle or while brainstorming on the One ring, etc.A: Not if mild. Not if mind is in right mode.
So, this is very different from what I wrote above.
I'm working from home and I look at myself; when I'm working on projects I'm like chain-smoker.
But, I also smoke wherever I go - waiting on a tram, in a car,...
So there is a difference between smoking "when you feel like you need one for the mind" and smoking "just because"..... :)
....just brainstorming here because we all here have got a great "licence to smoke" from C´s and other research; I was laughing A LOT when I was reading this part:
But as in all things, the right balance should be found, IMHO... :/Session Date: February 13th 2011
A: Smoking tobacco is a clue and an aid.
Q: (L) A clue to the genetic profile?
Q: (Psyche) Oh, interesting. [everyone lights a cigarette and starts laughing] (Psyche) Everybody lights up! I feel like smoking! (laughter)
I see what you mean about the balance. When I was in my 20s I was kind of like a chain-smoker too. Maybe it has something to do with age as far as how much we smoke. I don't know but I do think there will be many situations for you to practice moderation. I don't smoke inside the house out of external consideration for my family and there is so much negativity being programmed into the psyche of the public that soon we may be very limited on where and how much we are able to smoke.
I have thought about how difficult it is to persuade others we want to be healthy and talk about our food choices and other health issues while at the same time lighting up.
It sounds like you see your own dilemma and are willing to deal with the balance problem. I wish you success in finding that balance. It's something that for me seems a little more self-regulated. Also, with the cost of tobacco and the ever increasing restrictions we may be concerned for little reason. I don't really think many see it as "cool" these days.
