Mistaken Beliefs

Blog Post created by Thomas3.20.2010 on Jul 13, 2017

So you have any beliefs like these?

- I can cut back - it's better than not!

- I can quit for a Month and then relapse for a weekend and Monday pick up where I left off!

- I can hang around smokers even in the cab of a truck and still maintain my quit!

Sadly, I've heard all 3 of these mistaken beliefs right here within the last week!

Other mistaken beliefs:

- As long as I exercise and eat right or at least take my vitamins, I'll be OK!

- Menthol, natural, low tar or superfiltered cigarettes are safer!

- There's no point in quitting, I'm doomed!

What other mistaken beliefs have you heard?
