It's easy to quit smoking. I've done it hundreds of times." --Mark Twain
We hate to admit it, but smoking and creativity sometimes go hand in hand. Maybe it's the way nicotine simultaneously calms the body and mind, while revving up the thought process, increasing alertness and focus. Maybe, as one friend recently suggested, it's the fact that smoke breaks require you to step away from your work, an unplanned moment of reflection and renewal.
Indeed, recent research from the Academy of Management suggests that the old formula of 9 to 5 with only a break for lunch is actually counter-productive, that taking small breaks throughout the day "enables the mind to rest itself, leading to a higher net total concentration for a day's work, and as a result, increased productivity," according to an article published on businessnewsdaily.com.
Yet this is no modern-day revelation, and Twain is not the only prolific penman or philosopher to have made a space in his creative life for cigarettes. Add to that list Sigmund Freud, Albert Einstein, George Orwell, and even J.K. Rowling, who has since moved on to nicotine gum.
But maybe, like Twain (or Rowling), you've felt conflicted in your smoking. You love nicotine, but hate setting a bad example for your kids. You value the time to think, the meditative moments that a cigarette break allows, but are tired of the smoke, the smell, and the stigma. Maybe, like Twain, you've tried to quit. Maybe even 100 times.
So make this the 101st time you quit. But this time, quit quitting. Quit telling yourself that you absolutely must not have any nicotine ever. Quit the cold turkey, the black and white worldview. Quit denying yourself one of life's greatest pleasures and start embracing the myriad ways in which you CAN enjoy nicotine, with Highbrow Vapor e liquid.
