I am quitting smoking, I need to quit, I am on quit, I have quit… It used to make punishable feeling in mind, when I used to say I am quitting smoking. After few days of quit, I had to tell other smokers that I will not join you, I have quit smoking..Quitting quitting, some negative feeling in inner mind. Instead, I started thinking .. I am gaining…
I am gaining stronger lungs and heart
I am gaining good skin and looking younger
I am gaining whiter teeth
I am gaining better breath
I am gaining good smell of my hair and cloth
I am gaining huge confidence
I am gaining money as I am not buying cigarette any more
I am gaining better performance in physical activities…
So on and on….
All are gains (except in case additional gains of few pounds in weight)..
Therefore good to reinstate in mind I am gaining.. I am gaining .(instead of quitting smoking.)
See, this may make mind more adaptive to smoke free world !
