How people do their problem of smoking depends on the individual. For some it is part of their identity, for others it fills something missing in their lives and for many it is just a bad habit! It is not an addiction and it is actually easy to stop smoking when you know how.
There are many tools and techniques in NLP, Time Line Therapy™ and Hypnosis that can help you stop smoking and become a non smoker or smoke free. Different people need different techniques and different combinations of techniques depending on how they personally do the problem.
If you want to get started right now then read and act on the following:1) Write a smoking journal – write down every time you smoke and what you felt just before and after. This will start bringing into consciousness when and how much you smoke and any problem patterns you have. Complete your journal daily until you stop smoking. The great news is that if you REALLY want to STOP smoking this task usually reduces how much you smoke a day significantly! For some journalling is useful even after they have stopped smoking to support continuity of success.
2) If you fall off the wagon when you stop smoking that is ok! Just get back on and keep focused. On average an individual will end up going back to smoking 3 times having stopped! Accept it happened and start again! Never give up because you had a sneaky cheeky one or even two!
3) Enrol support from those around you. Tell them your goal and that you need support. If someone offers you a cigarette say 'NO' and consistently! If you end up saying 'Yes' at any point you are mis-communicating to others and they will think you are not serious about stopping.
And here is an extra motivator for you:
Save the money you would have spent on cigarettes and see how much you save over the days, weeks and months! I am sure you will have many other options re what to spend all that money on!
The above will help you kick start becoming a non smoker/ smoke free and get your motivation going. There is nothing like taking action to give yourself a boost and feel like you are taking control!
