According to the mysterious energy folks, smoking helps to open the third eye chakra.
This could explain the contemplative zone that seems to only appear when staring into the distance with a lighted smoky wand.
Smoking is also reported to be the habit of those seeking to protect their heart. The smoke creates a smoke-screen around the gentle place that might be hurt.
It’s probably not that far off.
I never met a smoker that wasn’t very sensitive – sometimes deep down. But then aren’t we all.
Maybe if you are opening your heart you might also find yourself giving up the ciggies.
Visa versa the recently heart broken might be found burning away behind the tobacco screen.
