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. "
