How to Quit Smoking Easily and Happily
Smoking is a complex issue. On one side, there is a physical addiction to nicotine and, on the other, a psychological addiction to cigarettes. So you may be wondering how to quit smoking easily and happily with no sense of loss or ‘giving up’?
The simple truth is that to find it easy to quit smoking, it is essential to remove your desire to smoke. With no desire to smoke, it takes no willpower not to. You can stick a patch on your arm or pop a pill, but you’ll still believe that you’re making a sacrifice.
The longer you smoke, the better you get at quieting the voice inside that tells you the truth about smoking. You go from thinking, “I can quit smoking anytime” to “Not right now.”
You might think that you don’t have the willpower to quit smoking, but how many times have you smoked in the freezing cold or wet? Or driven, late at night, to get cigarettes? Your will is strong.
It’s not lack of willpower or withdrawal that make it difficult to quit smoking.
The physical withdrawal from nicotine is negligible. What smokers suffer when they try to stop smoking using other quit methods is the misery and depression caused by the belief that they are being deprived of a pleasure or crutch. As long as these beliefs are in place, the quitting process is a tug of war.
Smoking is killing me—but I enjoy it. It’s expensive—but it relaxes me. It takes me away from other things—but it gives me time out during the day. It smells bad—but it relieves stress. It gives me something to do with my hands…
The truth is—it isn’t hard to stop smoking.
Allen Carr’s Easyway is a simple, drug-free approach entirely unlike conventional quit smoking methods that rely on substitution and willpower and it comes with a genuine Money Back Guarantee.
Allen Carr’s method doesn’t use scare tactics to focus on why you shouldn’t smoke. There are no gimmicks or drugs. It’s not brainwashing or hypnosis.
Instead, we tackle the core beliefs that make quitting seem difficult. We change your thinking about smoking and teach you how to reinterpret the entire smoking experience. As a result, you see smoking for what it is and your desire to smoke is removed. When you don’t want to smoke, there is no need for nicotine replacements or willpower.
“His method is absolutely unique, removing your dependence on cigarettes while you’re actually smoking. I’m pleased to say it has worked for many of my friends and staff”.
Sir Richard Branson – Entrepreneur
Imagine this conversation…
Me: Why do you smoke?
You: I enjoy it, it relaxes me, stress relief, time out, social, boredom etc etc
Me: Cool. Would you like a glass of bleach to drink?
You: No way, don’t be ridiculous!!
Me: Why not?
You: Because it would be pointless.
Me: Are you using willpower to say no?
You: No, of course not.
Me: What about just a little sip on a Friday night?
You: No way!
I know this is a silly scenario but I’m just using it to explain how your attitude would change based on your beliefs.
You don’t believe (and quite rightly) that there’s a benefit to drinking bleach therefore it’s easy to say no and it doesn’t require willpower.
But you do believe there’s some value in a cigarette and that’s why you’ve found it difficult to stop until now. Make sense?
It sounds simple because it is simple. Read some stories of happy non-smokers free of cigarettes thanks to Allen Carr’s Easyway. Read their excitement and imagine your life without cigarettes.
It may seem incredible to think that something that is a part of who you are will just disappear in 5 hours. But smoking isn’t who you are; it’s something you do. If you stop doing it, you’ll still be the same person. You can still relax, go out, and have friends. All without cigarettes. After all, non-smokers do it all the time! So can you.
It’s not a sentence of deprivation; it’s freedom from nicotine enslavement.
Stop letting cigarettes control your life!
