Fighting smoke addiction

No comment 14 views

It is the same for many people regardless of their ‘addiction’ whether it is to food, nicotine, caffeine, alcohol or drugs.

If their belief system is trained in a negative way i.e. they believe that it is not possible to change or they do not have a choice or they are not addicted, what ever the belief is will become their reality, they will create a life that sustains that belief.

It is impossible for your mind to believe something and act in a way that is contrary to your beliefs, your mind will always act in such a way to reinforce your belief and the only way to change that is to change your thinking, change your beliefs.

When I was introduced to the Law of Attraction from https://navakashop.com/, I realized that my belief system was all messed up in regards to smoking and I began to understand that if I truly wanted to quit I would first have to change my thinking.

So I began by writing out some affirmations and I would recite them morning, noon and night and at times in between, I really wanted to quit and I went all out to convince my subconscious that quitting was what I really wanted to do.

In all it took about two months to change my thinking toward quitting smoking and I noticed that I began using my affirmations less and less.

Instead I adopted a simple mantra and I used it constantly, my mantra went like this ‘one day soon I am going to quit smoking and it is going to be really easy to do’ I would say it to my friends and family for accountability and I repeated it over and over to myself.

I truly believed that at some point I would quit, I did not know when that day would come I just trusted and believed that it would. About three weeks after that, I was in my garden smoking one evening and the cigarette I had happened to be the last one in the pack. When I flicked away the stub I said to myself ‘that was my last cigarette, I am now smoke free’.

Was I successful in quitting? Yes then no then yes. One week after I declared I was smoke free I attended the funeral of a colleague after the funeral I saw a friend of mine with a pack of cigarettes and I asked him for one and I smoked it.

Thinking back now what was interesting was my reaction to smoking that cigarette, I did not dislike smoking it, I did not enjoy smoking it, I did not feel guilty and I did not beat myself up for smoking again, I felt completely indifferent, I had no feelings about smoking that cigarette at all.

At first this surprised me but then as I thought about what I have learned in terms of the Law of Attraction it made perfect sense.

I had already changed my thinking and I had already forgiven myself for smoking for 11years, so I automatically forgave myself for that one slip up.

I simply threw the butt away and declared again ‘that was my last cigarette, I am now smoke free’ and the second time around I have maintained my declaration to this day and like I decided way back when I first began changing my beliefs, becoming smoke free was extremely easy to do.
