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 wrong cause.
But the worst is to waste the time of those who want the help and get it later rather than sooner.
Talk to them as soon as they express the desire to quit, they will ask you how, right away. They only need to see the solution and they’ll use it.
But spend most of your time talking to those that are on the fence, but are not determined to do it necessarily soon. They are the goldmine, they are many! They only need to find out that there is also an easy, controlled by them way to quit. When they see that, they’ll decide to do it soon.
Let’s do this.
