This site is about relearning life without tobacco and the addiction to it.
When I am talking about the first 4 months, I am not speaking only of a length of time, I am talking about what you experience in those 4 months.
It's fairly easy to unlearn the daily habit after a month. It seems like hard work and it is if you only focus on quitting.
You are advised to get some distractions and release options going during the beginning of your quit. I used music, others use exercise. Main thing? CHANGE IT UP
OK, Now to the point of this blog;
day to day quitting isn't the same as something devastating like a death in the family, losing your job, etc. etc
Typically, a quitter will experience one thing catastrophic in the first 4 months that would have "forced" them to smoke. The proof in the pudding is when you get through a couple of these events with a clean quit because you've undone your own belief there were just some things that required smoking. Things you just couldn't get through without a cigarette.
IT WAS ALL A MYTH PEOPLE
Non smokers do it every day
