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.
