Swami Sivananda on Giving up Smoking: As there were no letters to attend to today, it being a Sunday, the Master spent some time in the evening in going and inspecting the newly-built Parvati Kutir near Shiva Kutir. While he was returning from the inspection and had reached the road adjacent to his room, a passer-by, who was known to the Master, complained that he was unable to give up smoking though he was trying to give it up gradually.

"Give up smoking at once," said the Master. "Gradual reduction is no good. It will be a failure. Whenever the tendency to smoke arises, chew some pepper or a piece of ginger; the tendency will then go away."
