There is a reason for that. Aside from the truth will set you free or knowledge is power, it works! Our psychological addiction needs to grow well beyond the subsiding demand of our physiological addiction to nicotine, as well as the physical characteristics and habits we developed and honed need to be forgotten. Our physical withdrawal symptoms subside rather quickly and our physical mannerisms more or less disperse on their own. Our physiological healing naturally continues on its own. What this leaves is the balance of growth. To balance out our journey of healing we need to make the effort to heal our own psychological damage. We need to change our way of thinking to mirror our new way of life. This aspect of healing may need a more direct effort by you to help initiate this change and then follow through with needed reinforcement. All you need to do is begin the process of reconditioning your way of thinking. This is done by living your life on a day to day basis along with continued education through reading. Develop the belief you will achieve the comfort you desire by visually seeing yourself as a comfortable x-smoker. If you don't believe or want to become comfortable it may take a long time of struggle and anguish to get there. How long should you spend reading? I have read where 20 minutes a day is sufficient. My suggestion is to do whatever is necessary. Who knows you better than anyone? How important is this quit to you? I am a firm believer in the following truth.
No Matter What Endeavor A Person Takes On, The Success Achieved Is In Direct Proportions To the Effort Spent!
To become a successful x-smoker do you have to do all I suggested? By no means, but would you wash your car and just wax one side?
It is important to remember there are not any requirements at Freedom to read or post. The only rule is no nicotine. No matter how your journey progresses all you have to practice to remain quit is never take another puff.
