Support with a positive, friendly, humble attitude.  His goal is to motivate members to work harder and fulfill their responsibility of quitting smoking. Jim has the ability to take a negative situation and turn it into a positive.   Jim continuously supports the EX community using positive affirmations to impart his wisdom and cheer us on.  You are sure to get the point from his logic, truth, and humor.  

Logic

"Banish the thoughts of "struggle" and replace them with pride of conquest." 

When you learn about quitting and nicotine addiction, you'll build confidence. You may even be more afraid of continuing to smoke than quitting." 

"I like to call them "smoking thoughts" rather than craves." 

Truth

 Yup,  " I lost my quit" Translation: " I decided to smoke."

"Once an addict always an addict. S.I.N.A.O."

"A crave won't hurt you,  smoking will."

"No luck necessary. You're the boss of your quit"

Humor

"Don't fear the snake. It only will bite if you allow it to.  Craves are like snakes..." 

"I didn't smoke today but didn't vacuum either. I don't plan on smoking but plan on vacuuming a couple of times a year whether the place needs it or not."

"Time is like a roll of toilet paper. It goes more quickly towards the end."

 

Always the gentleman, Jim is a breath of fresh air. He has a listening ear and a heart that understands. 

Thank you, Jim, for staying and supporting the EX family after 5 1/2 years.
