They start feeling nervous, and the nervousness immediately brings the idea to do something, to get engaged, so nobody feels that you are nervous. Just watch: when you start feeling that you need a cigarette, just watch why you need it. There is something that is making you nervous, and you don’t want to be caught.
I am reminded:
One day, in a New York church, as the bishop entered he saw a strange man, a perfect hippy type. But he made the bishop nervous, because that man looked into his eyes and said, “Do you know who I am? I am Lord Jesus Christ.”
The bishop phoned Rome: “What am I supposed to do?” he asked the pope, “a hippy-looking man, but he also looks like Jesus Christ. And I am alone here, early in the morning, and he has come here. I have never been told what we have to do when Jesus Christ comes, so I want instruction, clearly, so I don’t commit any mistake.”
The pope himself was nervous. He said, “Do only one thing: look busy! What else can be done? Meanwhile, give a phone call to the police station. Look busy so that man cannot see your nervousness.”
Cigarettes help you to look busy; your nervousness is covered by it. So don’t try to stop it; otherwise you will feel nervous and then you will fall back to the old pattern. The desire is there because something is left incomplete in you.
Complete it – and there are simple methods to complete it. Just a baby’s milk bottle will do. It will give you good food, it will make you healthier and it will take away all your desire for looking busy!
