At 7:20am 12 years ago, I stubbed out the last cigarette that ever touched my lips.
Throughout the past 12 years, I've given my secrets to a successful quit
How I prepared with no stress
How I got through the first 2 weeks
Keeping busy & replacing the dopamine by playing guitar 10 hours a day
What to expect during the time I've seen most people fail.
How to retrain your mind quickly once you've quit
Say "I don't do that anymore" every time you think of smoking
I discovered that laughing when I had a crave helped me steer away from danger.
How to beat the strongest craves
- Bite into a lemon skin and all
- Stick your head in the freezer and count backwards from 20
- Fill your mouth with ice cubes and let them melt while trying to avoid brain freeze.
What statistics say
And Most Importantly
Willingness, Not Willpower
Time Is The Healer
