                          MBA英語期刊精讀|戒煙的秘訣是什么?


                          導讀:人們總會對戒煙行為大驚小怪。他們會告訴你,尼古丁上癮性極強,很難戒。其實,戒煙完全是可行的,你只需要下定決心,然后把你的香煙扔進垃圾桶,就能完成戒煙。

                          The secret to stopping smoking? Stop!

                          戒煙的秘訣是什么?那就是不抽了!

                           

                          In the spirit of any aspirational self-help guru/writer/wellness entrepreneur, I thought I would use this timely opportunity to lay out my Failsafe Guide for Quitting Cigarettes This Year. As the clock ticks toward midnight on another year of hope, humility and stumbling intentions, I modestly offer you my strategy for how to stub it out for good. Herewith, my secret formula. The best way to stop smoking — is to stop.

                          本著一個有抱負、自強自立的專家/作家/健康產業創業者的精神,我認為我應該利用當下的時機,介紹我的“年度戒煙零失敗指南”。時間就要來到午夜,又一個從希望、到謙恭、再到計劃受挫的年份就要來到,在此之際,我向您分享我對于如何永久戒煙的一點淺見。以下就是我的秘訣。戒煙的最佳方式——就是不抽了。

                           

                          6366c4da6af3476797ce108c5ea931ed.jpg


                          Admittedly, as a methodology, it’s not especially exciting. It doesn’t come with mindful meditation exercises to start you on the quitting “journey”. Nor does it offer a host of spicy condiments to act as substitutes. I have no reading matter, nicotine inhibitors or any other gadgets, such as vapes, to help you. 

                          誠然,作為一種方法,這不算特別激動人心。它不包含幫你開啟戒煙“旅程”的正念冥想練習。它也不采用大量辛辣調味品作為替代品。我沒有閱讀材料、尼古丁抑制劑或其他小工具(例如電子煙)來幫助你。

                           

                          And yet, my method is absolutely foolproof. Honestly, it can’t be beat. Stopping smoking is a doddle. I promise you it can be done. All it requires is the decision that you really do want to quit.

                          但是,我的方法絕對可靠。說實話,這是不可能失敗的方法。戒煙是輕而易舉的。我向你保證,這是可以做到的。你只需要下一個決心:你真的想戒煙。

                           

                          People like to manufacture hysteria over the act of quitting. Nicotine, they warn, is horribly addictive. We are constantly reminded of how often people fail. Vast tranches of the UK’s health service are geared towards cessation, with huge budgets and resources allocated for support groups, therapy and aids. Another multibillion-pound industry has been built on the idea that to quit will require new investment — in hypnotherapy or acupuncture, in addiction apps or books by Allen Carr.

                          人們喜歡對戒煙行為大驚小怪。他們警告說,尼古丁上癮性極強。我們經常被提醒,人們失敗的幾率有多高。英國醫療服務中有很大一部分是針對戒煙的,為支持團體、療法和輔助手段分配了巨額預算和資源。還有一個規模不小的產業,其根本理念是戒煙需要新的投資——投資于催眠療法或針灸,以及戒癮APP或艾倫?卡爾的書籍。

                          Subsequently, the general narrative around smoking suggests that quitting is inevitably a fail. Which suits both the nicotine industry and those who want to thwart it, too. More than 5.2tn cigarettes were consumed globally annually in 2019, at a value of about $705bn. The global smoking cessation market, meanwhile, is expected to reach some $64bn by 2026.

                          關于吸煙,一般的說法是,戒煙不可避免會失敗。這種說法既適合尼古丁產業,也適合想要阻撓戒煙的人。2019年,全球全年消費逾5.2萬億支香煙,價值約為7050億美元。與此同時,到2026年,全球戒煙市場預計將達到約640億美元。

                           

                          The final decision to unfriend my 10 to 20 daily cigarettes felt like flicking off a switch. Instead of reminding myself continually about the fag breaks I was missing — I simply shut down all thoughts of them instead. 

                          我最終下定決心,與我每天都要抽上一、二十支的香煙分離,這感覺就像是按下了一個開關。我沒有不斷地提醒自己我現在不再享受的吸煙休息時間——我直接拋開了所有這方面的想法。

                           

                          It has really been quite straightforward. And even in the face of triggers such as the pandemic, disruption and a family bereavement I can, hand on heart, say that I haven’t smoked a single one. Sure, I’ve hung out around other smokers, and occasionally inhaled quite deeply in a smoky room. But with the rare exception of a perfect balmy summer evening, I rarely miss my former friends.

                          這真的很簡單。即使在面對疫情、生活一團亂和喪親之痛這樣的誘因時,我也可以坦誠地說,我一支煙也沒抽過。當然,我曾和其他吸煙者一起外出,偶爾在煙霧彌漫的房間里深深地吸一口。但是,除了一個非常怡人的夏日夜晚之外,我很少想念香煙。

                          Smoking was falling out of fashion but Covid-19 has seen the uptake surge again. Despite UK plans to be smoke-free by 2030, in August Cancer Research UK found the number of 18 to 34-year-olds who classed themselves as smokers had increased by a quarter: 652,000 more young adults in England now define themselves as smokers than did before the pandemic began.

                          吸煙已經不流行了,但是新冠疫情期間又出現了吸煙潮。盡管英國計劃到2030年實現無煙化,但英國癌癥研究所8月發現,將自己歸類為吸煙者的18至34歲年輕人的數量增加了四分之一:與疫情開始前相比,現在英國將自己歸類為吸煙者的年輕成年人增加了65.2萬人。

                           

                          New Zealand is facing an even greater challenge, as it aims to eliminate smoking in the coming decades. This month it announced plans for extraordinary legislation that will make it illegal for anyone who is now 14 years old or younger to buy cigarettes at any time throughout their lives.

                          新西蘭面臨著更大的挑戰,因為它的目標是在未來幾十年內杜絕吸煙現象。12月,它宣布了一項特別立法計劃,打算禁止現在14歲或14歲以下的人在人生中的任何時間購買香煙。

                           

                          6914d8f2646147769b23aa481907e7e2.jpg


                          Such prohibitive legislation, I would hazard, is unlikely to prompt young people to comply with the new laws. Surely making smoking so illicit will only burnish its cachet?

                          據我估計,這種禁止性法規不太可能促使年輕人遵守新法律。嚴令禁止吸煙只會讓吸煙顯得更酷吧?

                           

                           

                          But I am not a young person. Nor am I in much danger of not being legally allowed to buy my nicotine. But I do know that I won’t. Me and cigarettes are done — and while I once rated our relationship as being profound and more productive, I’m so much richer, pinker and, sadly, plumper now.

                          但我不是年輕人。我也沒有被法律禁止購買尼古丁的危險。但我知道我不會再買香煙。我和香煙分手了——雖然我曾認為我們的關系很深刻、讓人更有效率,但現在我變得更富有、更健康、(遺憾的是)體態也更豐滿了。

                           

                           

                          Don’t be fooled by the propaganda. This weekend will see a wodge of pieces reinforcing the idea that stopping requires a lot of “work”. There will be books and recommendations. There will be new treatments for you to try. But the challenge is by no means insurmountable, and those cessation aids are not what you really need. You just need to decide that the relationship is over, and throw your cigarettes in the bin.

                          不要被宣傳所愚弄。新年之際你將看到一系列的文章,強調戒煙需要大量的“工作”。還會有各種書籍和推薦。會有新的治療方法供你嘗試。但是,這一挑戰絕對不是無法克服的,而且這些戒煙輔助手段并不是你真正需要的。你只需要下定決心——這段關系已經結束——然后把你的香煙扔進垃圾桶。
