Slipped up too much ? I believe it's because we are living in the past ; living by past mistakes , past hurts , past failures, resentment , grief , whatever we used smoking for to mask and cover up our pain . ( are you the emotional smoker ? )
If one is told over and over again that they are "not too smart " they are "way too fat " or they will " never succeed " you may start to believe that . That's why we need support , we need to hear we can do this .
It's amazing isn't it how people can be so easily convinced both negatively and positively .
Big Ts tactics were mainly by advertisements created by using psychology to seduce you to smoke . They used the five senses . Touch , smell , taste , sight , and hearing . People are always attracted to the positive and driven to find it .
Big T fed our feel good brain receptors by words (speech) even before we lit the first cigarette that got us hooked to them .
My thought for you today is to think about is what lie have you believed about yourself and about cigarettes . How have you been influenced by others perception of you to believe you can't quit or perhaps someone has inflenced you by what they've said that keeps you quit .
The answer to this could be you have believed your own lies .
How does the negative feel ? If the memory hurts , it's a lie . Think positively . What you tell yourself when you are quitting smoking can be the missing link you have been looking for in every support group . It is the support you've been looking to nurture yourself and take care of yourself .
Have you been on a fine line ? __________ Will you take one step forward to success or take one step backward to smoking? Maybe you are just standing there waiting for the push from others , trusting others , instead of trusting yourself . We can't make the decisions for you .
No one is better qualified to make the choice but you . Will you be your best friend or your worst enemy ? Do you want the positive or the negative outcome in your quit today ? Do what you think you can't .
The cigarette has no power when you understand you don't smoke anymore .
Your quit can be easy .
