flash cards

from a book, by peter and peggy,,called out of the ashes..each card has a reason to quit,,helps you to reralise why you stoped smokeing,,keep them on you at all times,,when you feel like a smoke.. just look at the cards

[1] so you think one wont hurt?...when was the last time you had one and stoped smokeing

1.[a]1.i dont and wont smoke.that the best i can do.

2 i dont want one..i want them all..

3 you have to practice being an non smoker.it wont come automatically .every crave i suvive gives me moor practice.

4 avoid thoughts of how hard this might be..3 million smokers quit every year..it can be done..

5 when you make it through the first week,it gets better rapidly..

6 body changes are normal and sometimes uncomfortable but they remind me i am succeeding..

7 a craving is just a feeling.there is no reason to be affaid of it.you can say no to the craving as easily as you can say no to buying something out of your budget.it is my choice..

8 it takes what it takes to quite.no more no less.no matter what...just dont smoke...

9 symptomsw are temporary.i will feel normal again..

10 dont think of never smokeing again..think one hour..one..day..one minute if yoy have to.we only need to cope with to day..what ever happens tomorrow i will handle it

11 i will have craving weather i smoke or not.if i smoke they will get worse and come every 30 minutes..if i dont they will pass in a few moments and get fewer and farther between and get easier and easier until i am free..

12 i can live with the occasional desire to smoke or i can smoke.ther are no other choices..

13 smokeing does not calm my nerves..it creates stress every time my nicotine level drops and i have to smoke to bring it up again..as a smoker i am in a constant state of withdrawal creating stress//

14 each craving challenges me to think about what is really important to me..with each craving i have the choice of acting on what i belive or staying in denial

15 desires to smoke are inevitable...smokeing does not have to be ..

16 no one is makeing me stop smokeing..i can smoke if i want..i choose not to for now..tomorrow i will have the same choices..

17 the urge to light up will pass if i smoke or not..

18 i would rather be a non.smoker with an occaasional desire to smkoe than a smoker that always wants to quit...

19 getting ill from smokeing is far worse than this transitonal discomfort of quiting..

20 i am a puff away from a pack a day for the rest of my life..just dont smoke...

21 people why love themselves dont smoke...

22 its a pack of lies,,dont buy in to it..

Sssss,, you might even want to print the whole thing on one sheet and fold it into your wallet;; keep the faith all the best tony
