With the smoking habit rooted in the subconscious mind, life becomes a means to be defined by the ends of the habit.
Smoking is a subconscious approach to managing all emotions. Feeling stressed? Have a cigarette.
There are two approaches to escaping the mundane. The first approach to escaping the mundane, the approach mostly preferred by the monkey, is the escape back to the safety of the womb, the regression into the fetus-stage of development.
What is the mundane?
The monkey will find more and more occasions to smoke and the urge to smoke will be stronger as the next, previous, and current cigarette are not escape enough
Simply put, each time we light up a cigarette we are suppressing an emotion, and by doing so we are allowing ourselves not to feel that emotion for a while.
