How to Quit Smoking: Kick the Habit in the Butt and Don’t Look Back

Being honest with yourself, understanding your triggers and reasons for smoking, taking personal responsibility, and realizing that the power to stop smoking is YOURS and yours alone are the keys to becoming a non-smoker.

Preparing to Become a Non-Smoker

Before you become a non-smoker, you’ll need to prepare your mind and your environment.

Preparing your mind

Take a minute – yes, right now – to make a short list of words or phrases that describe you. Don’t overthink it – do it quickly. Write down whatever words come to mind.

Now, look over your list.

The words and phrases you wrote are good indicators of your self-concept.

Is “smoker” (or some variation) one of them?

Here’s why I asked: The first – and perhaps most important – step to becoming a non-smoker is to stop thinking of yourself as a smoker.

In fact, it would greatly benefit you to consider yourself a non-smoker NOW.

That’s because there is power in “faking it until you make it.”

If you see yourself as a smoker, it is part of your self-image, or self-concept.

Your self-concept started developing in early childhood, and everything you have done and experienced throughout your life has contributed to its formation.

If you have tried to stop smoking in the past and have not succeeded, it is very likely that a negative self-concept – one of failure – has been reinforced in your mind.

You will always act – and can ONLY act – like the type of person you SEE yourself to be in your mind.

If you see yourself as a smoker, you will behave like a smoker.

If you see yourself as a non-smoker, you will behave like a non-smoker.

    “NRT products can prolong nicotine addiction. Some call this slow torture.”

    and just what’s so wrong with nicotine? when you remove it from the combustion of plant matter it’s not actually that bad for you, there’s actually some benefits such as cognitive enhancements and potentially even protection from getting Alzheimer’s…

    Nicotine on it’s own is not a carcinogen and is more similar to caffeine in nature.

    I quit smoking over a year ago now but I still enjoy the benefits of nicotine, truth is the reason why it was so hard for me to quit smoking (I smoked 22 years) is because I actually enjoy the nicotine, I can use it and stop whenever I like now without the negative effects of the combustion of tobacco.

    if you ingest caffeine….. you MUST cut back.. nicotine has a suppressive effect on caffeine.. w/o it, your normal dose will leave you ‘intoxicated’ literally coming out of your skin.. this is the reason so many have problems stopping smoking.

    There are lots of ways to give up smoking cigarettes, although nothing did for me, but if you need to you are able to. Start with calling the quit line, not merely will you’ll get someone to teach you, they send you the patch for free. In the event that you are much smoker, keep in mind plenty of studies have actually shown that cold turkey or making use of only the patch doesn’t work – your human body is used to too much nicotine.

    You’ll explore google for CHARLES JACKSON PROGRAM QUIT SMOKING to have the book which we utilized to help with quitting smoking.

    I hope to give something back and help others like you aided me.
