How to Quit Smoking Tip #3

Hello All

Here we are with tip #3 on how to quit smoking, right out of our book How I Quit My 4 Pack a Day Cigarette Habit (and you can too)

“We smokers have many many reasons for smoking, I won’t pretend to know yours, but at some point the nicotine in the cigarettes got our minds and bodies addicted. We can rationalize that we aren’t, we can quit when we want, we don’t need to smoke we like to, it’s not affecting our body in any way. Be honest with yourselves you have said something like this or thought it at some point. Nicotine really is a wonderfully evil substance, we don’t know it has us until its to late. It can feel fantastic when you get some after not having it for a while, like after a long nights sleep or a couple of hours in a meeting. It can scare us to death thinking we can’t have our nicotine for a while or ever again!

 

What I hated to admit was that something had control of me, that I was not controlling it, I don’t know about you but that really got my goat. You have to admit that it’s got you, at least I did, so I then could know my enemy and defeat it. I got mad at this addiction and I wanted to get rid of it, that was a giant step in my progress toward quitting. Sounds silly but it is all part of the preparation. “

First Review

Here is what one of our first readers had to say.

Dennis, congratulations!!  Just downloaded it through iBooks and breezed through it. It’s a quick read and funny. I’m not a smoker but there are good lessons in discipline, planning, and preparation for all. And now I can honestly recommend it to smokers that I know who are grappling with the same issues.

Again … CONGRATULATIONS!

David

Thanks David

How To Quit Smoking Tip #1

Hello all,

Here is the first in a series of tips to quit. I hope they help you.

Wow, here I am just passing my fourth year of being a successful quitter! I know successful  and quitter sound funny together but that is exactly what I am, a successful quitter and proud of it, especially since I had battled my smoking habit for over thirty-eight years! Over four years ago I wanted to quit smoking, I put a plan together and I ended up quitting. The reality of how well that plan worked hit home the other night. My wife and I were watching some show on television and a couple of the characters lit up a cigarette and pretended to really enjoy that first drag and then the slow… exhale. You know what I mean, as a smoker we all played that scene out  hundreds of time in real life. Well this is what hit me, I had no desire or even a tingle to want to do that myself and in previous attempts at quitting, I always did. I have not had a craving nor have I missed smoking at all since I got passed my first 25 days off of nicotine.

The first thing you must do to stop smoking is really very simple and extremely hard at the same time. You must want to quit.  If you don’t get to that point nothing else matters. You can say I want to try, or I need to, I should quit, those statements are not the same as wanting to quit. I tried to quit hundreds of times in the past, I would make it maybe three hours or two days and once for two years but in all those attempts I failed. I came to understand that in all those tries, I really did not want to quit, I just pretended to quit. I can not begin to tell you what will make you want to quit, that is a deeply personal thing for you. For me I woke up one morning and after hacking up the proverbial lung for ten minutes realized I couldn’t keep doing this, that is what started me on my path to wanting to quit smoking.

More to follow.

Yes you can, when you go to Amazon to buy the book you have a choice of downloading  free reading apps or read it on your browser in what I think is called the cloud reader.
