Hi and welcome to HCM

Actualy you are having some dependence on kerosene so you will got addicted if you do it for long time is also a kind of drug better to avoid it the way if you do it for one year it may also be carcinogenic (can cause cancer), so take a desicion and leave this habbit.

I do hope that you have found something helpful and informative and I will be glad to answer any further query.
Take care.
