We know now that no forewarned health scares, no money problems, nor threats will stop you from smoking in most cases. It is the true desire to want to quit. I am not saying that you may not have mixed feelings and be a bit afraid of what life will be like without it. Nor that you have to say you hate cigarettes.

Its a journey, like any other. You don't just embark on it.

First you had an IDEA to embark on this journey. You NEED to go on it to a new place and experience new things. And there is preparation involved too. RESEARCHING that destination. Once you have your passport and know enough not to drink the water when you get there. Yes, NEVER drink the water once you get to Mexico!

How to get there is another consideration. Consider expense, direct route or lay overs or whether speed is more important. Once decided, ask the neighbours or friends to keep watch while you are on this journey. Knowing your friends and family are watching out gives you peace of mind. Clear your calendar for the best time to get started and book the ticket.

Arrangements are done. Now to feel the excitement, the anticipation of going off to a brand new world soon. There is always the chance that the plane might crash, but that won't stop you. Fear of fear is not going to hold you back. You'll just have a drink before you embark and have some gum ready in case the pressure is too much.

You take a good book to re-read on the trip. Allan Carr does have quit the way with words and makes you forget about your fears. You are now quite looking forward to this whole adventure.

You will discover things about yourself and about another way of life.It is great to unwind and experience the freedom of time being yours. The warm sun makes your skin glow, the fresh air is amazing, and the people you have met on this journey are so helpful and amazing. You wish you could stay and never go back.......

Suddenly, you are awakened. It was just a dream.

Now it has you thinking

Why Not?
