    what's related "feel complete" with "cigarette"?

    Chandler: Don't think of it as a cigarette. Think of it as the thing that's been missing from your hand. When you're holding it, you feel right. You feel complete.

    This is From Friends Season1 Episode3

    I think feeling complete is kind of feeling fulfilled...

    or maybe cause I don't smoke, I can't feel it

    Could you spell it out?

    I'm not a native speaker but I hear this phrase frequently.

    I think: I feel complete = I'm so satisfied with this thing in my life.

    The meaning of "complete" is explained in

    Think of it as the thing that's been missing from your hand.

    When something is missing from your hand, you may feel incomplete, lacking some part. When it's not missing, you may feel complete, because the part is in its place.
