Here are the steps to freedom and what you can expect on your journey to freedom!.
Step 1 DECIDE TO QUIT (the big first step)
Step 2 Get through the first week. (the most difficult time)
Step 3 Get through the first month. (the most uncomfortable time inclused the 1st week -Your body/brain is still adjusting in a major way)
Step 4 Getting through No Mans Land (130 days + or -) The minimal unlearning smoking time.
This is the time many will go back due to overconfidence and/or unexpectedly strong cravings.
this is where the term "The only way out is through" needs to be your reigning thought.
Step 5 First Year Smoke Free. You are now in the 6% club. 1st set of emotional & physical seasons down
Step 6 Second Year Smoke Free 2ndset of emotional and physical seasons completed.
(the relapse rate drops to 4% after 2 years)
Step 7 Lifetime Smoke Free.No Longer Controlled By Thoughts Of Smoking
(watch the drinking. It can kill your quit at any step)
