Good morning everyone,
I found this picture last night, apologies for the grainy quality, but it really struck a chord for all the things we talk about when trying to stop smoking. Yes there are things to help you along the way like NRT and Champix but even with those products we have to have the will , desire and motivation to make the behavioural changes that make all the difference to staying quit.
So put the remote away.....and really have a look at what cues make you want to smoke....it might be when you are with friends in the pub and the smokers pop outside for a ciggy and you want to go with them....it might be when the kids are being particularly noisy and pushing your last nerve and you feel like a smoke......or first thing in the morning when you make your cuppa and you want to reach for that little white stick. No remote is going to switch your wiring and change those cues you have to do it yourself and rewire your brain to a new way of thinking.
The great news is that lots of people on here have already done that so read their advice and see what you can take from it. There is a whole new way of life out there waiting to be grabbed. The feeling of fresh air pouring into healthier lungs....no more standing outside in the rain to smoke.....being able to walk and run without getting breathless. Go and get it......you know you can do it.
