Your tobacco addiction could be a deal breaker
Dating app, QuackQuack surveyed its users to learn more about the effects of smoking on love life. According to the survey results, 69% of male users aged 31 and over are heavy smokers. While 79% of male users aged 18-30 are primarily non-smokers.
Tobacco addiction creates chaos in love life
Forty-seven percent of people have dated someone with a tobacco addiction at some point in their life. The subject of recovery seemed to be stuck in limbo more often than not. Twenty-two percent of people admitted to fighting because of their partner’s addiction.
What the women said
Twenty-eight percent of users said their dates were often emotionally unavailable due to their tobacco addiction. They prioritized the substance they use over their relationship. Some of these women revealed that when confronted, their dates tried to justify their addiction to cigarettes citing factors such as work pressure, family tensions, etc.
Confessions of a Smoker
Twenty-three percent of the men admitted to being addicted to cigarettes and other tobacco products, but did not specify their dates. They worry that their smoking habits will cause problems in their love life. Even if their partners are unaware of their addiction, 12% of these men said they were making efforts to quit smoking and had made good progress.
Dating a smoker is a daunting task
Twenty-five percent of people aged 25 to 30 said dating a smoker can be difficult. You may find yourself engaging in empowering behavior. Continued smoking can have serious health consequences. The majority of users who responded to the survey said that they would not want to be in a relationship with someone who has health problems, especially if they are self-inflicted.
Fourteen percent of people aged 21 to 29 said smoking was an absolute no-no. When you start dating someone to find happiness and stability, it’s not always a good idea to date someone who is suffering from an addiction. These people revealed that, given the possibility of relapse, they are unlikely to consider dating someone who is trying to quit smoking.
Smoking will cost you dearly!
Twenty-one percent of people aged 25 to 35 reported changes in their partner’s drinking habits due to their smoking habits and other tobacco addictions. It can be costly to feed an addiction. A cigarette a day costs a significant sum.
Although it is not their responsibility to change their partner’s habits, 16% of women said they would like to help their partner recover from tobacco addiction. They also suggested that you help your partner quit the addiction on their own. If they break their habit for you, chances are they will relapse.
QuackQuack Founder and CEO Ravi Mittal commented, “In terms of desirability, smokers are on the back end of non-smokers. According to our survey, there seems to be a complete reversal of smoking habits among users over the age of 31. the model shows that the majority of young people are non-smokers, but they are also consciously trying to quit.”
For smokers and drug addicts, remember to ask for help. Addiction not only ruins your love life, but it also wreaks havoc on your body.
