Nearly 25% of the U.S. population smokes tobacco products. Many smokers report that they do so more often when they feel stressed, worried, sad, or angry. Many state that smoking helps them relax, feel happier, and calmer.

But do cigarettes actually create these positive emotions – or is it just a bunch of smoke?

After 23 years working in multinational corporations, I had opportunities to observe the behavior of my smoking colleagues. It appears to me that smoking promotes relaxation.

How?

In all cases, smoking signaled break time…whether in the middle of a meeting, right after lunch, or before starting the last half of the day.

Smoking usually involves having a buddy to smoke with, a cause for camaraderie. Smiles come and go. Comments about the boss, or the presentation, or the upcoming vacation, are all part of the social interaction that occurs during smoke breaks.

What I observed in each of those instances of colleagues holding their nicely branded paper sticks was…breathing!

Deeply inhaling through the nose…pause…deeply exhaling through the mouth.

After studying with Dr. Joe Dispenza and becoming a Certified NeuroChangeSolutions Consultant, I discovered that the healthy side of smoking relates to BREATHING.

Breathing itself shows up as a top tool for shifting from living in a state of stress and survival to living in a state of creation. The body will definitely produce chemicals.

Luckily, it’s not the chemicals associated with nicotine.
