Question: Any normal person wants to live. But when a doctor advises him to get rid of some bad habit that causes a disease, he has no motivation for it even if there is a threat of death. What is the reason for this unnatural attitude?
Answer: He has a very vague idea of the connection between death and a certain deed, such as smoking, that can lead to death. If he had known that one puff pushes him to the grave, he might not have done it.
