The thought of smoking came and I laughed it off. I realized I had the urge to smoke and I'd caught it and did not need to act on it and it made me laugh.
From that day on, I laughed every time I got a craving. After a week, I was thinking of laughing, not smoking.
I just watched a story on laughter. They said that it doesn't matter how you start laughing, only that you do it.
Many of us forget to laugh due to all the stress and worry in our lives.
Laughing has numerous (documented) health benefits. It's good for your circulatory and immune systems as well as all systems in your body and your mind.
Example: People who had heart attacks and were encouraged to laugh during their recovery had an 8% chance of a second heart attack in the first year whereas those who didn't had a 42% chance.
Laughter releases endorphins.
People who laugh are automatically happier.
LAUGHTER IS THE BEST MEDICINE BOTH PREVENTATIVE AND CURATIVE.
Laughter is free, requires no tools and, you can do it anywhere. (chuckle in church)
