Description

Isn’t it interesting how, within the span of forty years, cigarettes have gone from being considered a fairly harmless habit to having a reputation as being one of the most harmful things a person can inflict on their body? By now almost every American has heard the message through a megaphone that smoking is unequivocally bad and a terrible habit to have. For those who do still smoke, and would like to quit, the message they receive from society can sometimes lack compassion. Usually people say, “How can you possibly still smoke? Don’t you know they’re terrible for you and everyone around you, and will kill you if you keep it up? Just quit already!” Have you heard people say that or have you yourself said that. But as millions who’ve become addicted to smoking know, it’s never that easy. Quitting smoking is a difficult and discouraging road for many people, and anyone who wants to quit needs the support and encouragement of friends and society, not finger-shaking and lectures. If getting the message out that cigarettes are bad for you were all it took, we wouldn’t have anyone with a smoking problem left anymore. Instead, people who are trying to quit smoking need caring support and specific strategies in place to help them overcome their addiction.

As health and human services professionals, we’re on the front lines of people’s choices and habits, and the effects they have on people’s health. The information we’re able to share, and the attitude with which we convey it, can make the difference to a patient or client struggling with a health issue. No matter what area of health and human services realm we work in, we’ll almost certainly have patients or clients who smoke and many who may be trying to quit smoking. What an impact we can have, and what an encouragement we can be, if we’re prepared with an understanding attitude and specific, helpful advice, instead of an eye roll and a warning about how bad cigarettes are for you. This also applies if you’re the one struggling with a smoking addiction. You may be trying not to think about the harm that cigarettes are causing you because you don’t feel like you’ll ever succeed at quitting. For your own healthier life, or for the lives of those you serve, let’s learn about some real, practical steps that people can take to quit smoking for good!
