The Quit Smoking “Triggers”

The “smoking triggers” are nothing else than normal things of life, small or big, trivial or tragic, but just normal, nonetheless, as I demonstrate in the video below. They are no different for smoker than for nonsmoker, but it is their falsely amplified importance that makes the smoker look at them with the fear of something bad going to happen (cravings etc). And when we expect the bad, we usually generate it. The so-called triggers are defined as such by two categories of people, both of which unfortunately have nothing to do with the knowledge of how smoking works, misleading and frightening, as a result, the poor smoker who tries to...

Quit “BY” Smoking??

That’s what we are after every time we smoke: the feeling of not being stressed, a feeling that non smokers feel all the time and smokers only when they take the drug. If this video seems too long or boring to watch, let me write its condensed idea, that you can read right below the video. Every time you smoke, the tension generated by the previous cigarette goes away due to “drug work” and you feel okay for the moment. You feel, for those few moments after smoking, exactly how a nonsmoker feels all the time. I can tell, because I was a smoker and I am a nonsmoker. What...

Get Back Into Your Comfort Zone

I love staying within my comfort zone. Do you? I thought so, that’s why my message to you is “get out of back into your comfort zone”. It’s called comfort zone because it is… comfortable. Duh, I know. The video down the page is a short conclusion of what you read in this post, so I sincerely recommend you read it. But if you’re in a hurry, scroll down to the bottom of this article and watch it now. Anyway, I try to sell you on reading more by asking you this question: Why do so many strong, influential people out there encourage you to “get out of your comfort zone”? Of course...

When Willpower Crumbles… Heck, You Didn’t Need It Anyway!

It’s one of the strongest concerns that prevent smokers from even trying to quit. If you are one, you know you have it and used it successfully in other areas of your life, but when it comes to quitting smoking, your shoulders fall a little, you look down, you feel awful and admit to yourself… or to a really close one: “I just don’t have enough willpower…”. That’s what I talk about in the videos below. About why you don’t need it, actually! I know it was awful for me to belive I don’t have willpower and not only I felt being let down about ever escaping from smoking,...

Survey Yourself

As a smoker, you’d never think you can help others quit. It wouldn’t make sense… at first. But realise that, like in any class, when you raise your hand and ask a question, all other pals of yours will learn from the anser you get. But it gets better! How’d you like the teacher to ask YOU for HELP to improve the stuff he’s teaching you?! To have him asking “What would you like to learn next?” and then see him taking notes on what you say, prepare the next lesson and teach you exactly what you’ve asked for, and more? Me? When I want something that someone else has, I ask. You have...

Offer Help Wisely

Lucky to get out of smoking before getting into health trouble (who knows, maybe later?…), I kept trying to tell others how there is light on the other side of the fence. I was brutally rejected sometimes, by people who couldn’t belive it is possible to make your quit easy. They are convinced they know better, no matter what you say, they won’t listen. If you tried the same, it happened to you, too, you know what I’m saying. I finally understood that it’s a waste of everybody’s time. Theirs, because they don’t see any benefit from such discussion, on the contrary. I’d also waste my time on the...
