This is the book that I am currently reading!  "What To Say When You Talk To Yourself."  I am reading a chapter in the book and I wanted to share it with all fo you.  It is about Smoking!  The section is called Postive Self-Talk To Stop Smoking.  I know it is a little long, but I think it might help some of you with your quit smoking journey!  This book is about positive self talk and how you should talk to yourself!  

" * I do not smoke.  My lungs are strong and healthy.  I am able to breathe deeply and fully.

*Taking care of myself physically is important to me.  I like keeping myself fit and feeling good.

*I am a non-smoker---and I am proud of myself.

*I have more energy and stamina than ever before.  I enjoy life and I'm glad to be here.

*When I see a cigarette, or even think of one, I automatically hear the words, "I do not smoke" --- and I don't.

*I have no habits which control or influence me in any harmful way.  I am in control of myself and everything I do.  I always do what is best for me, myself, and my future.

*I really enjoy breathing clean, fresh air, being healthy, and being in complete control of my body and my mind.

*I am able to achieve any goal which I set for myself.  I see, in my mind, a clear picture of myself having alreayd accomplished my goal.  I creat it, I see it often, and I achieve it.

*All my senses are clear and alive.  My sight , my sense of smell, my hearing, my tasting, and even my touch are more alive than ever before.

*I do not see smoking as being strong, intelligent, or glamorous in any way.  I see it for what it really is, and it has no place in my life.

*I give myself permission to relax, feel good, breathe deeply and fully, and enjoy being a healthy non-smoker at all times and in all circumstances.

*People enjoy being around me.  I have self-confidence and self-respect.  I like myself, and it shows!

*Being a non-smoker is easy for me.  After all, I was born that way---and it is the natural thing for me to do. "

Thank You, Jenn!
