It Won’t Help Saying “It Won’t Help”

"Smoking won't help solving that particular problem" you're told when you light one. Like you didn't know that already. Like you're smoking in order to solve that problem. Like you were that stupid! I remember how I wanted to smoke even more when hearing that, because not only I had to deal with the problem itself, but also with the frustration that the person telling me that (with the best intentions) didn't understand the reason why I was smoking. The fact is I didn't understand it myself. I just felt I wanted to smoke. And, if you're still a smoker, you don't understand it, either. Find the clue in this video.

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...

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...
