When there is smoke, there is a solution!
A sign of dependency
Smokers usually use tobacco as a dependency tool to release stress or tension of any sort. What they need to understand is the fact that it’s not necessary to rely on these addictions. Gauri Tatke, Clinical Psychologist and Counsellor, says, “Smokers or those who have addiction issues suffer from neurological disorder and need to be treated for it. But, for that, they need to realise that there is a problem. We can counsel them and find different healthy solutions for them.”
Tatke explains further, “The self-realisation plays an important role in all these cases. The partners, family or friends can also help the addicted ones by offering them help or making them realise that they have a problem. Pursuing healthy exercises or maybe joining creative classes will help them divert from their compulsions.”
