Okay, newbies, now listen up.
You've probably googled around at the success rates for smoking cessation techniques, and the numbers aren't all that inspiring.
For instance, I quit cold turkey. If you look that up, you'll find various sites talking about a 3-6% success rate. Pretty discouraging, no?
Well, not if you change the sample size. I chose to be a sample of ONE. And I ran the experiment for me, not for anyone else.
And MY success rate is 100%. 100% of me successfully quit smoking cold turkey. I find that pretty inspiring.
So, here's my advice. Ignore the success rate for anonymous others, and focus on the one person you can control, the one person you can impact, the one person who matters most: yourself.
Do that, and no matter what method you're choosing to quit smoking, you can have a success rate of 100% as well.
Now, raise your right hand and repeat after me:
"I will not be discouraged by reported success rates for my method of choice, because I will be a sample of one with a 100% success rate."
Okay. Back to your regularly scheduled crave fighting. You can do it!
