There are few things more damaging to a relationship than an addiction. I constantly hear from my readers that their partner’s marijuana addiction eats away at their finances, ruins the time they have to spend together and overall leaves them feeling second-best to a leafy green weed.

What is smoking addiction?

The addiction to smoking, which implies addiction to the substance nicotine, has several components. The better one is aware of these components and understands them; the better is the chance for succeeding in stopping the smoking habit. Here is a survey of the components that addiction to smoke consist of.

The Social Component

To some extend the habit of smoking is a product of socialization. Socialization is simply the tendency to repeat patterns of behavior one sees other persons in the society exhibit. Socialization is one major way children and young people learn social skills. Children and teenagers learn skills necessary to live and work in the society by a socialization process. Unfortunately also bad habits and bad ways of thinking are learned the same way.
