~~She decided to see how her life would change if she dropped the assumption she needed fixing.~~ Unknown
Hmm....what about you? As you quit smoking, do you find yourself feeling like you need someone to show you the way? Do you think you need the magic formula for happiness? What about a miracle to make your quit less....agonizing?
What if, instead, you begin to think that you are exactly where you need to be. What if you begin to believe that craving a cigarette after you quit is simply left over memories of smoking which will fade in time? What if you begin to imagine yourself healthier....happier....richer....?
Trust me, you don't need to be fixed. Your precious, extraordinary quit is happening exactly as it should be happening. As you move forward without cigarettes, your mind is simply trying to keep you in the 10 or 20 or 40 year routine that you have lived until now. Simply...gently...give yourself time to heal, kindness to ease your path, and love to nourish your new journey.
Release the assumption that you can't do it. Let go of the beliefs that you need a cigarette. Drop the thoughts that keep you tied to your addiction. Begin creating health. Begin developing new routines. Begin to believe that you deserve a life of joy and beauty and hope and freedom. Because you do.
It's all in your mind, so believe you can.
