imageBoredom is a fascinating emotion, good not bad.  They say time flies when having fun but chemical servitude isn't voluntary and using time and life to damage and destroy life is a mental illness called drug addiction. 

If a pack-a-day smoker spent an average of 5 minutes for each nicotine fix (including buying, getting to your spot, getting your fix and clean-up), that's 100 minutes per day, 1 hour and 40 minutes that's now either empty or looking to be used.  And how was that time used?  It was the addict's replenishment period, when dopamine pathway wants were satisfied, a period of chemical stimulation.  

The beauty of boredom is that it's an invitation to find clean, healthy and natural ways to stimulate our body and mind.   It need not happen now but ending feelings of purposelessness brings purpose to life.   If a pack a day smoker, those 100 minutes are yours for the taking, a gift from you to you!   That's 36,500 minutes per year, 608 hours or fifteen 40-hour work weeks per year.  I don't know what you have in mind but that's a pretty massive gift you've given yourself!   Just one simple rule to keep those 15 extra activity weeks, no nicotine today!!!

Breathe deep, hug hard, live long,
