Any Intoxication which is harmful for health is an attempt to commit SUICIDE.

Garuda puran is read when a soul leaves a material body/when a person dies. In Garud Puran, Once Garudji (King of birds & Sri Vishnu Bhagwan's ride) had a conversation with Bhagwan Vishnu, long conversation took place about how a person is suppose to die & what gati/happens next?

Ch-20, P-2, Verse-43 - “O Garuda, a person becomes a ghost and undergoes the sufferings thereof, if he dies an accidental or untimely death or if his body is not cremated properly”

Death due to Intoxication is not considered as a Natural death.
Intoxication includes
-Cigarette smoking
-Chewing Any Flavoured or variety Tobacco
-Drugs like Opium, LSD, Marijuana, & many allopathic medicines which are basically pain killers, sleeping pills etc.

Those who are addicted towards intoxication dies few years earlier than the normal life span mentioned on their forehead by Sri Brahmaji, We would share one example about Cigarettes, even Modern Science proved how 7 minutes of a person gets less just with one cigarette. That means a person who smokes one packet of cigarette daily which is 10 cigarettes x 7minutes = 70 minutes/day x 365 days a year = 25550 minutes a year or 1064 hours a year which is around 45 days a year gets lesser from a
persons life span, assume a person stars smoking at the age of 20 & a normal human life span is suppose to be around 70 years, atleast 30 years a person is addicted with smoking habit, would die 1350 days earlier which is 3.5 years earlier than his normal life span. Which proves such a death is not natural but an attempt to commit SUISIDE by forcing such slow poison drugs in our body & as we read in scriptures that if a life span of a person is suppose to be 80 years & by any reason a person? dies earlier. For Ex. A person suppose to live for 80 years but dies at the age of 40, his soul gets a temporary body to reside for those remaining 40 years. If the person died by committing suicide he suffers badly, his desires increases 1000 times extra compared to that in a human body, his urges, temptation increases so badly but he cant do anything, he cant fulfil any desires due to a body type that he possess & such sprit souls suffer very badly untill the destined life span & such sprit souls always harms other humans to full fill their desires, but if a person dies due to some accident the soul gets a subtle body which wont harm anybody for sure.

Intoxication is like a slow poison, people are aware of this fact & even its been shown on the cigarette wrappers how it can harm our body. Even after so many warnings from the scriptures, warning from the Doctors, warning from the Tobacco manufacture people mentioned on their products. A MAN DOES NOT UNDERSTAND & JUST BUSY BEHIND GRATFYING THEIR SENSES WITH SUCH TEMPERORY PLEASURES which are the reason for suffering.

The following article below, about the benefit of quitting smoke is from one Internet Source.

The beneficial effects of quitting smoking starts as early as 20 minutes. This is what happens medical when one quits smoking.

1.At 20 minutes after quitting blood pressure decreases, pulse rate drops and body temperature of hands and feet increases.
2.At 8 hours carbon monoxide level in blood drops to normal and oxygen level in blood increases to normal.
3. At 24 hours the chance of a heart attack decreases
4. Nerve endings start re-growing and the ability to taste and smell starts to improve At 48 hours.
5. At 1 year smoke free excess risk of coronary heart disease is decreased to half that of a smoker.
6. From 5 to 15 years after quitting, stroke risk is reduced to that of people who have never smoked.
7. At 10 years risk of lung cancer drops to as little as one-half that of continuing smokers, risk of cancer of the mouth, throat, esophagus, bladder, kidney, and
pancreas decreases and the risk of ulcer decreases.
8. At age of 15, the risk of coronary heart disease is now same as to that of people who have had never smoked and the death risk returns to nearly the level of people
who have never smoked.
If we add scientific with Vedic knowledge attempt should be made to quit smoking at the earliest as it takes nearly 15 years after one has quitted to get over the
damage done by smoking.

One is born to live 108 years and therefore it is never too late to quit. Don't let smoking come on top of you and waste your precious life any more. Quit now and get this journey underway!
