And it seems to me that it is easier for a teenager to quit smoking, purely physically, than for an adult - due to his short (not from birth, does he smoke?) experience, the addiction is not so strong. But psychologically it can be very difficult! After all, what is smoking for a teenager? This is a kind of symbol of adulthood, coolness, independence and independence (from the rules and opinions of others). Most often people start smoking with a company. And how can you quit if everyone is smoking around? Chances are good that friends will start laughing and calling them "mama's boy" and "little". Trying to persuade or force a teenager to quit smoking, in my opinion, is useless. But if such a decision was made consciously and independently, the chances are very high. You can try to talk with company members, explain the importance of this step. If friends are real, they will understand and support. And maybe even join. And what if you try to do, say, sports together. And instead of throwing himself off for another pack of cigarettes, the younger one will buy a ball and go to play football? And if not, if constant malicious ridicule offends and alienates you from the goal ... Are they really friends? As a last resort, you can find another company: healthy, athletic, fun and interesting!
Quitting smoking is sometimes quite difficult even for an adult. Ask your friends, parents, or loved ones for help. Explain that you want to quit the bad habit. If you come across a negative attitude from adults, then explain that you need help, not notation. Try to convey that you yourself understand the harm, but you cannot cope.
Tell us how you managed to quit the addiction of smoking (any nicotine addiction). I would like to hear an answer from people who have felt the full severity of getting rid of this habit.
