Your eyes and mind follow
It's our built in animal magic
Like when you enter a new space.
Your eyes do a screening for danger
things something or someone could hide behind, entrances and exits.
We do this without thinking.
Back to "When your ears hear"
We speak of self talk here to re enforce your quit, especially in the first four months.
If you'll hear yourself say "I don't do that anymore." or "That is not for me" or any of the other mantras people have come up with as reminders, you will solidify and cement your forever quit but, you have to hear yourself say it, then, in time it becomes an automatic shutdown of thoughts of smoking.
Talk to yourself!
Find something that flips the switch
then, hear yourself say it until just the thought of speaking those words becomes the shutdown.
Say it every time.
YOU WILL BE AMAZED AT WHAT THIS WILL DO FOR YOU.
