How high is your mountain?

First of all, WHAT IS YOUR MOUNTAIN?

What resistance will you put up against quitting?

What will be your excuse for failure?

 

Setting limits

Expectations

What's the worst thing that could happen?

 

When I quit, I asked myself a lot of questions.

      A major one was, "what could happen that would make you smoke again?"

      My answer was if the highway patrol came to my door to tell me my family was gone. 

That was my limit, my self-assigned breaking point.

 

      Have the rest of you given yourself a limit?

I believe it shows a true involvement when you consider and ask yourself this question before you quit, even if you don't set one.

      It can be an agreement with yourself as it was for me. It sets parameters before you start so you don't meander. It's like the agreement I made when I stopped using the patch the second week. I put one in my wallet with the promise I would put it on rather than smoke. It stayed there my first year. Never needed it. Hopefully, you grasp how powerful agreements with yourself can be.

 

Everyone has a different limit.

      We've watched more than a few life experiences lead people back to smoking. 

 

Why has my limit worked for me?

I grew my quit beyond my limit.
