The word mindset has been used here quite often.
Wise people have tried to help explain it. Some people can grasp it very easily. Some people cannot. and some people play around with the idea.
I'm almost certain now that the concept of the mindset cannot be taught.
I think its to do with feelings.
It only comes with how the smoker (in this case) feels about Quitting the addiction. The smoker has to eventually come the the conclusion that they want to not smoke. Hoping, wishing, needing or dreaming does not quite meet the criteria of the MINDSET for Quitting. People can Quit through sheer willpower and determination , until eventually they stumble on to the right mindset of not wanting the smoke anymore. Its the great light bulb moment when you know its FREEDOM.
Some have the ability to realize this mindset Straight away. Some people have to fight the cravings for many months.
And most of us fit somewhere in between.
Have a think where you might fit in this spectrum.
To sum up, I hope that you have found the mindset to quit successfully, Its just a switch and belief that can be found within ourselves. And I am hoping we all find that WANT (To not smoke)
PS, I believe that feeling has arrived. (for me)
Thank you for reading and to those who have tried to help me, I understand now
