Dreams Born of Reality are the Fuel Home
Welcome to Freedom! What is the inner source that will allow
you to stop smoking nicotine, skip those once mandatory feedings, and
resume full control
of your life? Strength, willpower, desire?
It would be natural to think that it's a combination of the three
but none of us are stronger than our addiction, as is clearly evidenced
inability to live the drug addict's first wish of being able to
control the uncontrollable. You cannot beat your dependency into
submission, stand toe
to toe with it, or handle one puff of nicotine and prevail.
Nicotine's chemical bond with the brain's reward pathways is beyond the
Willpower? Yes, we can each temporarily muster mountains of
willpower but can willpower make any of us of us endure a challenge that
we lack the
motivation to complete? Can you inhale, chew or suck nicotine into
your body and then "will it" to not travel to the brain's addiction
circuitry or create the chemical need for more? Have you ever been
able to order or command the challenges of chemical withdrawal or
recovery to cease? If we are incapable of using strength to
control our addiction and we cannot "will" our chemical dependency into
or submission, then what remains?
As simple as it may sound, dreams and desires born of honest
recognition of tobacco's impact upon our life have the amazing ability
to fuel change,
but it takes keeping those original honest motivations in the
forefront and driver's seat of our mind so that they can both
subconsciously guide us home.
The successful quitter finds ways to protect and safeguard their
primary motivations so that they remain robust, alive and available at a
notice to fuel the patience needed to transition this temporary
period of adjustment called "quitting." The intelligent quitter's
combines an understanding of the law of addiction - one puff of
nicotine equals relapse - with well-protected core motivations.
The successful quitter does not try to forget what their health
was like while smoking, what it felt like to be controlled, the
growing sense of
becoming a social outcast, or that feeling as we stood at the
tobacco counter and paid our hard earned money to purchase the more than
contained in each cigarette that would slowly destroy our body and
mind. The successful quitter keeps such memories - and others - in
the forefront of
their mind as honest reminders and motivations to fuel their dreams
The intelligent quitter realizes that if they allow their
motivations to die that it is highly likely that their freedom and
healing may die along with
them. The intelligent quitter finds ways to fuel their motivations,
just one day at a time, through study, understanding, education, skills
critical observation and honesty. They know that they are 100%
guaranteed to continue free today if they'll only maintain and protect
day #1 genuine desires to ... Never Take Another Puff!
Breathe deep, hug hard, live long. John : )
