... to stop your smoking.

These are excerpts taken from Dr. Mike Evans’ 2012 video:  What is the Single Best Thing You Can Do to Quit Smoking? - YouTube 

“Stopping smoking is about making a change, and that’s not something we’re too good at. You will need to change more than your smoking to stop your smoking”


“Preparation... this is critical with smoking, especially in the event that you’ve quit before - what has worked in the past and what hasn’t.


“The power of nicotine comes from the repeated small doses you give yourself when you smoke....If you take fifteen puffs from a cigarette, and smoke...20 cigarettes a day, that’s 300 drug doses a day.


“There’s never a perfect time to quit and a some point you just have to jump.


“Part of the healing of stopping a damaging relationship is starting new healthy relationships,


“Failures are part of the dress rehearsals for eventual success."



Education opens our eyes to the possibility of change.  Willingness allows that change to occur.  Acceptance makes the journey easier.  Perseverance ensures success.  Stick with it everybody.  


What changes are you willing to make in order to overcome this addiction?  I said to myself - "whatever is necessary. " What do you say?
