I Want to Quit Smoking – Or Can I?

How many times have YOU TRIED TO QUIT SMOKING?

How many more times than that have you found yourself saying ‘I want to quit smoking’?

Not as easy to give up smoking as you thought? More stressful and taxing than you anticipated?

Rest assured that it can be done. There are many smokers, myself included, who have successfully stopped smoking regardless of how much they smoked or how long they had smoked tobacco. These ex-smokers have accomplished what many have considered the ‘impossible’. But HOW did they do it?

How Did The Ex-Smokers Quit?

Of the many options available to us in conjunction with the abundance of stop smoking programs, was there any one program in particular that brought about the results that propelled smokers to the heights of becoming a non-smoker?

Most smokers who have smoked for any length of time have at one time or another, thought about quitting smoking.

In doing so, they’ve probably had their share of thoughts that instantly raced through their minds. Most prominent are the thoughts of fear. Fear of what you will do once you have successfully quit smoking, or perhaps, the fear of failure.

Many tobacco smokers have tried to give up smoking many times before they finally succeeded. Their first attempt is generally tried by going cold turkey. This is when you give up smoking suddenly without any real assistance from outside sources and ‘rough’ it on your own. Although this approach can be very effective, and many a smoker has succeeded with this technique, it is also the most difficult and brutal to achieve.

It’s also very possible that their success might of been brought about from a stop smoking program that worked like a charm for them the first time around. Or maybe still, their success might of been derived from gathering together the information and techniques from a particular stop smoking program that they had previously failed with from past attempts.

By combining the knowledge that they gained from their previous failures, along with the accumulation of the techniques that worked the best for them, they were able to reconstruct a personal stop smoking program that rewarded them with the success that they had so earnestly desired.
