One Way to Quit Smoking

I tried everything... the patch, the pill, having a partner who didn't like it, stopping cold turkey, stopping because I thought I should, weening off... nothing worked for me until I was ready. The point? Never. give. up. And try it all!

My Addictive Relationship

It took 10 Years to finally quit smoking and so what I can suggest is this... take baby steps and PRACTICE. 21 and 30 days challenges ARE what gave me the skills and strength to take on my biggest addiction.

There is no shame in trying and falling as long as you never give up, stand back up and try again! Keep going, you'll get it!

I had stopped smoking many years ago. I had found the decision to be quite straightforward in my case.

Yet, for some reason, and in the face of stress I would sometimes 'wonder' how it would be to smoke a cigarette - simply to experience that pull, thinking that to experience this pull would give me relief.

A few months ago this led me to smoke a cigarette again. In the days after I had smoked this cigarette, I experienced discomfort within myself. I did not feel clear in my standing - until one evening as I was looking at this point, I realised that had to make an absolute decision on this point. The decision was that smoking is not for me and so there was no point in going there again.

After I had made this decision I was clear within myself and I have not experienced this craving again since.

When I smoked when I was 17 I saw it was an addiction, a habit, I went to buy it, smoked it, I felt I had some kind of control by doing that action, maybe the power of thinking that it was my choice. Yet, it had stopped being my decision, it became an addiction very fast, an automatic action, me buying it, smoking it. I could feel my body sensations changing, I felt cold, shaky, the way I perceived reality was faster, it accelerated my heart rate.

But then I didn't continue with it, I smoked only when I felt like I have had a tough day, or when I was nervous about something that I was feeling inside.

With Desteni I could stop smoking in a moment. Thanks to a video where a being through the portal shared that when one smokes is like one is not wanting to see a point, or a point gets suppressed, and it was like I just stopped by listening to that information.
But three years ago I smoked again a couple of cigars, I was feeling things within me related to a rush energy within me that I was holding within me and not letting go with regards to me experiencing something positive, an obsession.

Now very once in a while I feel I want to smoke, yet I let it disipate and don't go buy it. But I've been experiencing a lot of resistance to the smell, I run away from it, and become irritated when someone is smoking around me of has smoked and I perceive the smell somehow. So that may have to do with something I suppressed when I smoked, where I didn't understand it but suppressed it and now a resistance comes up of me smelling the cigar, so I can support myself to smell the cigar and take a look at what it is that comes up, underneath the smell of the cigar, what comes up in my mind, self and body.

It'll be 4 years this jan 7th.

I have absolutely no desire to go back to that filth.

My whole life as changed for the better, not just physically but mentally as well.

When I let it go it was scary but I took hold of the idea that I was free in an instant. so the very next day I was a non smoker - holding onto this attitude my confidence went from zero to hero and I never looked back. A big support tool for me was a book called, "the easy way to quit smoking" -by Allen Carr. I highly recommend it to anyone that is serious about dropping the worlds most addictive drug. Every now and then I am reminded of it, after 15 years of smoking its no wonder. mostly during changes of season like winter or fall but nothing more than a flicker, like an nostalgic memory triggered by the smell.
