Have you ever wondered
how to give up smoking, even though you feel that now might not be the best
time? Is it even possible?
The answer is yes,
absolutely it’s possible, providing you have the correct information to begin
Let’s look at this
question another way. Do you want to be a smoker for the rest of your life?
Absolutely no way, no smoker does.
What this means is
that you want to quit smoking one day…but right now you’re either too scared or
just simply don’t know how to.
As smokers we’ll
always make excuses to put off the dreaded day:
I’m not ready; now isn’t the right time for me
I can’t afford it at the moment
I’ll feel deprived and that I’m missing out
The withdrawals will be awful
I need to wait until all of the stress has gone from my life etc
There’s only one true
reason why we make all of these excuses and it is fear.
Fear of missing out,
fear of loss, fear of losing our best friend, fear of having to go through
awful withdrawals, fear of going through the rest of our lives feeling
miserable and deprived.
All of this fear
is caused by the cigarette, not relieved by it. Non-smokers
don’t have it.
During my 13 years as
a quit smoking therapist I’ve personally seen thousands of smokers, and there
have been a good number who have absolutely, categorically told me they do not
want to quit smoking. They’re only there because a loved one has booked them
Of course, I always
offer them a get out and a refund which they never take.
Five hours later
they’ve thrown their cigarettes in the bin and are walking out smiling, happy
and feeling free, confident that they’ll never smoke again, now understanding
the truth about smoking.
There’s no such thing
as it not being the right time to quit smoking – only scared to
quit smoking, but once you understand the truth about it, even the most
committed, long term smokers can give up smoking easily and happily.
