Two recent studies have pointed out that what you believe about smoking and about quitting are in fact what you experience! When given identical sickerettes half a group were told they had nicotine and half were told that they were nnicotine free. The groups acted entirely different on an fMRI! [fMRI can see brain activity.]
Another study showed that if you believe that you will quit smoking - then your chances are that you will regardless of the method(s) used. If you believe that it's impossible for you to quit then your chances are not good. Education and Cognitive Adjustment are more important than what pill, patch, etc you use to quit in measuring success! Actually NRTs alone don't help! Support and ATTITUDE ADJUSTMENT make all the difference!
By spending time here, participating and reading things like quitsmokingonline and The Easy Way you just made your belief system change. If you skip those steps and think "I just haven't found the right med (or method) for me" you are dooming yourself to another failure!
It's that simple!
The best quit smoking tool anybody has is right between your ears!
You CAN do this!
