    You have to realize that loneliness is a feeling and not a fact. It is just a temporary feeling you have to overcome. You should not allow your feeling of loneliness to rule over your life. This way, you can overcome the feeling and get back to your senses.

    Continuous feeling of loneliness will only harm your health. That’s why, you have to learn how to fight it.

    Below is an excerpt of an article that talks why feeling of loneliness is worse than smoking 15 cigarettes a day:

    The study was conducted by researchers at Brigham Young University in 2015. In order to prove their hypothesis that being lonely is just as bad as smoking 15 cigarettes a day, the researchers analyzed data from different health studies. All the studies included more than 3 million participants that included data from social isolation, loneliness, and living alone.

    The lead author of the study, Julianne Holt-Lunstad, explains that “the result of this study is comparable to obesity; something that public health takes very seriously.” She adds that people need to start taking social relationships more seriously. Hold-Lunstad adds that the results from her 2015 study are “Comparable to the risk of smoking up to 15 cigarettes a day. It exceeds the risk of alcohol consumption, it exceeds the risk of physical inactivity, obesity, and it exceeds the risk of air pollution.”

    The study also found that increased social connection was linked to 50% reduced risk of premature death. A 2016 Census found that one-person households accounted for more than 28% of all households. Since 2001, the number of couples that have children has been falling and only make up 26.5% of all households, according to City News.
