Nothing To Do With Your Hands

Smoking has nothing to do with your hands and you should not try to do anything special with your hands when you quit smoking. Use your hands like a non smoker that you want to be. I know what many say, that you must find something to do with your hands to replace the habit of handling the cigarette. That relies on the belief that, as you did a certain thing for so long (habit), it would be hard for you to stop doing it at once, so you need to continue for a while. Before you go watch the video below this article, let me clarify something:

The “Benefit – Problem – Solution” Approach

You’re fighting your cravings and wonder if they’ll ever go away… If you keep fighting them, they won’t and I explain why – and what to do, in the spontaneous video I just made. In the article below, I go deeper into revealing how our educated thinking stays in the way to freedom and I also teach you the simple shift you must make to get yourself to the freedom you deserve. I was pretty lazy and I didn’t intend to publish it, but I make an important and very useful point, that you can apply immediately, so I guess it’s worth feeling a little embarrassed, only to help you...

How “Positive Thinking” Ruins Your Quit Smoking Attempts

Studies show that we’re two times more driven by fear/loss motivators than by gain/benefit ones. Basically it comes from a deep ancestral need for security, to make sure we stay away from danger, so that we live and procreate. Rewards are good and we want them, but we can live and procreate with or without them. Indeed, pains of any kind or size, physical or emotional, could move our asses faster than any of the positive motivators. When it comes to smoking, you’d expect that just few of the bad things would be enough to help us quit twice faster than booking the holiday we promised to ourselves to...

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...

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...

After 30 Days I’m Strong Enough For Just One Cigarette

The natural work of nicotine is to enslave you. Okay, to addict you, if you want it said mildly. Once that you have it out of your body, don’t let it in again. Ever. People who don’t understand the subtleties of smoking have difficulties quitting, but some of them, sometimes, somehow, can find themselves out of the nicotine trap. Those who completely understand the smoking trap, the connections between causes and effects, will always escape, easily, and will never fall back. Not smoking will become for them, like for me, the natural state of being, which you can never alter, as you can never win fighting nature. Stay away from nicotine...
