No Matter What

Posted in Getting started 08 Jan 2020

Day 3..seems easier than yesterday,however still early in the day. Hard times seems to be for me late arvo when I would enjoy a wine or a beer and a ciggie. Gonna stay focussed and strong and get through today. My first target/goal is seven days so I am on track. Good luck to those embarking on this journey and congrats to those who have succeeded. I choose not to smoke and will not put one in my mouth NO MATTER WHAT.

    Your determination is to be admired Collystop but if you look around you will find a lot of chatter about the Mindset. This is an exercise of retraining our minds. It sounds easy but it is not easy for some. Others take to it no problem. If you are open minded and take the time to read the book by Allan Carr, free, right here it will likely make the journey easier. It is about 100 pages about nicotine and you , why we smoke and how smoking gave us the illusion that it gave us courage, relaxation etcetera.

    The truth really can set you free. Anyone can quit smoking if they CHOOSE to. Embrace the journey and you too will be successful.

    I can vouch for that Collystop.
    In the first few days it was almost living from minute to minute. It gets much easier.
    As soon as I read the book my whole outlook on NICOTINE and smoking changed and I let go.
    Im on Day 35 now. Only get reminders about smoking occasionally. Im FREE of being addicted and controlled by a cigarette.
    Read the book. Stay with us. We're here for you.

    Hi Collystop - well done!
    I have just finished the first week, and it is a brilliant feeling. Can't wait til you get here.
    I have been a smoker for 35 years, and have tried heaps of times to stop in the past. This time there is a difference. This site makes the difference, and reading the book recommended by Happiness and Pisces24 makes the difference.

  • Happiness January 08, 2020 | 14:40 while it is not the link i wanted to post, it is about light bulbs and connecting them to win, kind of like what we do here. It is a quick game, just long enough to keep you engaged while a craving subsides. Lots of other great puzzles too. Enjoy

    ........but first , things first, Read the book.....

    Your spot on. No matter what your thinking and what time of the day it is?
    Kill off temptation. Take it one day at a time to get to one week, because, the mind gets clearer day by day without the poison.
