Smoking Cessation Begins with a New Life

The family that I belong to always was a smoking family, and it is not uncommon for us to remember the days fondly before smoking cessation.  The group of us that believed in a smoke free life grew slowly, but now we are all smoke free!  I am so proud of the fact that we made it to our smoking cessation goals.

Steps towards Smoking Cessation

The only way to begin a smoking cessation program is to actually want to begin your life again.  You were not born a smoker, you were just in practice smoking, and need to return back to your natural state of enjoying life.  Without the nicotine monkey on your back, your life will begin again, and you will find your smoking cessation is successful.

The Steps To Quitting Smoking Begins with Smoking Cessation

Nicotine is the chemical that keeps you smoking, so removing this chemical from your daily life is important to create successful smoking cessation.  Once you stop your smoking, you will find the first two weeks difficult, but possible if you have the right mind set.

The second step to smoking cessation is to believe and know in your heart that you will not lose anything by embracing smoking cessation.  If you believe that the statement above is not true, then you are not approaching the problem correctly.  The nicotine is not the primary reason you smoke, the one reason that keeps you smoking, is the stubborn thought that you will lose more if you quit.  The fact is, you gain everything by not smoking.

Gain Everything By Smoking Cessation

The third step is all the small things you used to do smoking, must be new and improved as a non-smoker.   Smoking cessation will continue and prosper as you constantly evolve back in your non-smoking self.  Why fight your smoking plan when you can embrace your non-smoking self once again?

Your health will improve, your finances will find a face lift, and be eased by your lifestyle change.  Smoking cessation will continue when you find ways to go bowling and not smoke between games.  A new event will occur, and you will find ways to make that smoking time even better as you continue your path to smoking cessation.  I can’t tell you want that will be, as only you can find the things you love to do, and make them more of a priority.  Smoking is not a love, but a large wall to happiness.

The times you find smoking comforting, now need to be reviewed.  Why is it comforting?  Analyze why you smoke when you do, and you will find when you smoked, you were actually in jail by nicotine, and not free to be different, unique, spontaneous, or happy.  All the times you thought before that you must smoke, are now open windows of time where new possibilities can be explored.  Your smoking cessation must continue with positive changes, as the quit is always not losing anything, but gaining back your life.

Quit Smoking Stress

The most stressful part to your quit smoking plan, is the decision to quit.  The step is very much a scary and large stress filled component of your quit.  No matter how hard you have had to envision yourself as a non-smoker, the smoker in you is really hell bent on staying afraid, and the… Continue Reading
