Our world of today runs into a variety of trends, often and again! We don’t like a simple match of colours, a decent pattern of paints; we love variegations rather. We prefer gaudy to decent.
It’s the trend, man!
We perfectly know what the trend today is, but we try not to make out that it is us who brought this trend to life. It should be just so obvious for us that “trend, we can change, it must not change us!”
But we belong to a world of weirdly useless apparitions at the times of logical thinking.
One of such trends being smoking!
Every specific individual among us knows that smoking is injurious, let out the kids who don’t even know what smoking is!
But then, the movie and health councils still put-up “smoking is injurious to health” notifications whenever such a scene appears while you’re watching a movie, or any regular show. Not because they don’t know that you know, rather to bring this knowledge into practice; and then, what’s that label on our TV-screen called?
An obstacle in view.
WOW! And when a person is asked the reason for his smoking initiative, the answer almost ‘always’ is that there had to be had a new experience and some activity in trend would only have done the best.
I don’t actually know if writing about it does bring even the slightest awareness!
But, allow me to bring to you two pieces of writing about and against this demon from Humane (Facebook page):
The rest, I believe, Dear Readers, you know far better, and much more than I do.
