What do those two words "proactive interference" mean?
I looked them up and they were not necessarily what I expected.
What they mean to me is positive "self talk."
Self talk can quickly halt reverting to old ways and enable you
to get some time under your belt as you learn to change your responses.
People talk themselves into smoking. People can talk themselves out of it.
I like the the "pro" in proactive because it typically notes something positive.
"Quitting can be something positive when you look past the negative."
