I feel like a crazy person. I can’t stop eating. I’m getting fat. I just want to run around yelling F**K!

Don’t let this person be you. Seriously, just don’t. And you know it doesn’t have to be. In nineteen years, I have heard it all.

Compare that to this:

I think this is it, not a smoker anymore, after 32 years!                           

Thank you and regards,

So you have tried to quit and found it difficult. Perhaps you know someone who quit and struggled. Maybe you know someone who quit easily, cold turkey and has never smoked again.

What is the difference between all these people and you? Here is what you need to know, quoted from Wikipedia with sources:

Nicotine dependence involves aspects of both psychological dependence and physical dependence, since discontinuation of extended use has been shown to produce both affective (e.g., anxiety, irritability, craving, anhedonia) and somatic (mild motor dysfunctions such as tremor) withdrawal symptoms.[1]

These are the two concepts that will change everything for you right here:
so·mat·ic
  1. of or relating to the body, especially as distinct from the mind.
So, science is telling us that the WORST thing that will happen, physically, from nicotine withdrawal is a MILD motor dysfunction, like a tremor. That is it. Yes, really. Physically this is basically it.
I know what you are thinking, this didn’t happen to me, I was angry and frustrated and I was so hungry, blah, blah, blah
That is 100% completely true, I believe you. That’s because of:

af·fec·tive

  1. relating to moods, feelings, and attitudes.
    “affective disorders”
What if I told you, I know of a way to uplift your mood, change your feelings and shift your attitudes, using techniques refined in my time as a smoking cessation specialist?
On top of that, I will show you how to create new healthy habits from the old ones.

What if I told you, that even if you thought it was difficult and you did the techniques, you would then find it easy. All you would have to do is, some work though. You can’t expect to do nothing to combat years worth of training.
And if you were unsuccessful at the first attempt you would need to do it again. And that is what separates success in business and life.

 

Nicotine Replacement Therapy (NRT) Patch, gum or inhaler?

This Cochrane Review study done in 1996 and updated in November, 2007, found that nicotine replacement therapies like the patch, gum or inhaler increased chances of quitting by 50% to 70%.

Bear in mind that with no program, only 5% of quitters are still smoke free at the end of 12 months. A 50% increase in the quit rate would mean that 7.5% of those using NRT were successful after 12 months. Source: http://www.tobaccofree.org/quitlinks.htm
