Tired of 'quitting smoking'. Let me help you
You have just spent quite a lot
of your own valuable time reading through NeverSmokeAgain.Com and whether you
realize it or not, the result is that you have collected your own set of willpower tools. And, as you learn
to use these tools you will become more and more skilled and effective at using
willpower to insure that you will be a non-smoker for life. Using willpower
to quit smoking is a skill - a skill that you learn and practice. As you do this
you should get better and better at it. At first you crawl and then you walk.
Its just like everything else you do in life. There's a learning curve to
getting good at using these tools. Recognize that using the tools that you
gained from the NeverSmokeAgain.Com program will get easier and easier as time
Now, lets review what these tools are that you will use as you go through the lifelong process of being a non-smoker.
First we examined how you may have started smoking and why. You probably started
smoking when you were young and quickly became addicted to nicotine. Then we
said that you had to have been in a state of 'Denial' about your smoking and
that you eventually owned up to the truth about the ill effects of smoking and
now you are no longer in denial. You have become honest with yourself about
the perils of smoking and now you are doing the right thing by quitting smoking.
You can use your HONEST outlook on the realities of your smoking past to aid you in having a
more positive attitude about your non-smoking future. You can't learn when you
are in denial.
Hopefully you have a better understanding about what willpower is, but most
importantly, you have
learned that one's willpower is not at a constant level and that we
sometimes have a strong sense of willpower and sometimes a weak sense of
willpower. Willpower is a confusing concept because of the changing nature of
what willpower is. You CAN use willpower to achieve your smoking cessation goals.
Willpower is what you make of it. The key is to recognize when your willpower is
weak and then use the tools you have learned to strengthen your willpower. You
CAN utilize willpower skills to enhance your sense of willpower with a better
understanding of what willpower is and how to recognize when your willpower is weak.
Have reasons for quitting
You can strengthen your willpower by receiving positive inspiration from your reasons for
quitting smoking. The more you believe in your reasons for quitting smoking the
easier and more natural your smoking cessation experience will be. Having CLEAR reasons to quit smoking will give a greater sense of purpose to your efforts. I listed my
top ten reasons for quitting smoking. You may have different reasons. What is
most important is that you truly BELIEVE that quitting smoking is in yours and
everyone's best interest and that you are doing the right thing by quitting
By quitting just once and FOREVER you will make quitting smoking easier. The
one-day-at-a-time method forces you to make the decision to quit over and over
again. By making the decision just once you can concentrate on using willpower
to to quit smoking. Non-smokers are people that don't
smoke at any time, now or in the future. You can't be a temporary non-smoker or you aren't a non-smoker at
all. If you haven't quit for the rest of your life then you are just a smoker
who isn't currently smoking. Use the idea of PERMANENCE and FOREVER. You can't possibly smoke again because you have already made a
decision to commit for the rest of your life to Never Smoke Again.
Don't rely upon smoking cessation drugs
Drugs are a lazy way to quit smoking. A smoking addiction is a
combination of physical and psychological dependence and using drugs to placate
your desire to smoke is half-baked. While the drugs may reduce your initial
desire for a cigarette they do not help with the psychological addiction of
smoking. Long after the nicotine has left your body you will still crave smoking
because of your brain's memory of having been satiated by inhaling nicotine in
the past. The calming feeling that you used to get when you got your nicotine
fix will be remembered by your brain for a long time into the future. Using
nicotine replacement therapy does not help you with that. What tools do the drug
makers leave you with after you have stopped using their patch or gum? Not many.
In fact, it is to the drug maker's benefit if you fail at quitting smoking since
you will have to buy their products all over again the next time you try to
Smoking cessation drugs are ineffective in the long term. The efficacy tests
used by the FDA are highly questionable and those drugs have many side effects.
Believe that you can succeed
The best way to succeed is to Believe
that you can succeed. This notion is ESSENTIAL to the quitting process.
You must believe in yourself first. Take a risk. Go out on a limb. You won't
fail. You CAN do this. Believe it.
Take care of the basic mechanics of quitting
Throw away your cigarettes. Throw away your ashtrays. Make your home a
non-smoking environment. Make your workplace a non-smoking environment. If you
do these things, quitting smoking will be far easier since you will have less
temptation from seeing other smoke and you will have made an important statement
to yourself and others around you that you have become a non-smoker forever.
Recognize the situations that are most likely to cause you to want to smoke
Remember that you made a list? Did you print it out? Did you hang it up
somewhere where you will see it regularly? You must be very conscientious of the
situations that you will face that will make you think of smoking. You can't
avoid those situations but you can be more prepared when you face each
situation. For example, if driving in your car is a situation that will make you
want to smoke, then be prepared for it. When you are driving in your car, EXPECT
to get the urge to smoke. You are less vulnerable to the urge to smoke if you
can mentally prepare yourself prior to and during being in that situation.
Remember your BIG QUIT event
You should always be able to reflect back on the moment you quit smoking. Your
BIG QUIT event will always hold great meaning for you. Don't treat it lightly.
By doing the BIT QUIT event you are making your act of quitting smoking
MEMORABLE. This is really important.
Keep you word - Remember that you signed a contract
You agreed to Never Smoke Again. I know that you did because you are reading
this page. You couldn't have gotten this far without agreeing. YOU AGREED. Keep your word and Never Smoke Again. Don't back out of your agreement.
The agreement is real. The fact that you made the agreement with yourself is
more significant than if you had made the agreement with anyone else. Take
responsibility for what you agreed to do. NEVER SMOKE AGAIN.
