ive never read anything about cigarettes specifically, but ive read a lot aboutt the benifits of being free from craving and desire by the Buddha.
nothing ever induced constant craving and desire on a daily basis like nicotine did. i didnt smoke cigareetes for 4 years, only joints of tobacco and cannabis to the point where my mind was consumed by paranoid thoughts.
i finished with cannabis four months ago and gave up cigarettes at the beginning of december. i had some anxiousness and restlessness in the beginning but i meditated, exercised and ate healthy nutritous food. it became easier to forget about smoking and now it is in my past.
Aflame with the fire of passion, the fire of aversion, the fire of delusion.
Aflame, with birth, aging & death, with sorrows, lamentations, pains, distresses, & despairs ......
