Are You Sick Of Your Smoking Habit?

Jan 21, 2008
You would think the answer to that would be fairly obvious - you just quit! But I am afraid that would be the answer you've already heard from countless others who have either never smoked in the first place or have never successfully quit themselves.

So here is some advice from a smoker of twenty years who quit 10 years back.

Though for you to come to this point of wanting to quit smoking may be a major breakthrough in your life, you need to know that the desire to quit alone is not strong enough for you because it is not enough for most people - 97% to be precise. So, unless you belong to that minuscule minority, don't do it, even if you are desperate and want to quit right at this very moment.

The first step you need to take is to try and remove all emotion from the process. You should treat this clinically. Just as a doctor would look at the problem objectively, diagnose it and treat it accordingly without bringing in any emotion, you need to create a distance between your self and your habit. Your anger or desperation will not see you through the quitting process.

You may want to quit because you have smoker's cough; a serious health scare; desire a better environment for your children; or just want to quit for yourself because you know it is the right thing to do. Look at your reasons and write down all the emotions and reasons you want to quit. These reasons will help you on your journey to becoming a non-smoker.

Based on your reasons for quitting, search the internet for as much useful information as you can find. Fortify your reasons with relevant information because information is power. The more you know about the task at hand, the less hold the nicotine monster will have over you.

Once you have the information you desire, I encourage you to find a stop smoking program that addresses your concerns about quitting and then purchase it. Whether that is the program I developed or someone else's, it does not matter as long as it appeals to your wants and needs and gives you the resolve to beat this nasty habit.

No matter which program you ultimately choose, you must do one all important thing - YOU MUST USE IT!

The mind will make hundreds of excuses to tell you that you can start using the program tomorrow. But tomorrow never comes. When it comes, it comes as today, and then you wait for the next day. Always remember, if you don't start now, you probably won't start at all. So, get the information you need - order a program - and start using it now.

You'll be glad you did because it is the first step that is the most difficult. Once, you have taken the first step you will sail through the rest of the process.

To your success,

Darren Warmuth
