Exchanging Bad Habits for Good Habits
If you smoke 10 cigarettes a day, that equals 73,000 cigarettes in 20 years. Can you figure out how much money you will have spent on cigarettes? But that’s not the worst part. Imagine what your lungs will look like.
How do you quit smoking today? Or, how do you stop any bad habit? First, define the habit you want to change, which in this case is to stop smoking. Think about all the benefits and rewards you will receive if you quit smoking.
•clothes won’t smell like smoke
•more money to spend on vacations or whatever
•protect your family from harmful smoke
Second, create a three-part action plan. This could include any three things that will help you stop smoking such as:
•read “how to stop smoking” literature
•making a bet with friends that you won’t smoke
•begin an exercise program (best if it’s outdoors)
•stay away from smokers
•herbs (see the previous post) or pills
Whatever you can think of, write it down and then choose the three that you want to use to break this habit of smoking.
If you want to get more focus in your life or business, I highly recommend “The Power of Focus.” You can pick it up at a bookstore or order it on Amazon.
Finding Something Else to Help You Relax Besides Cigarettes
Smoking does relax you .Nothing in cigarettes can make/help you actually relax – quite the opposite in fact pollutants, irritants and stimulants are present that affect your health and wellbeing. It messes and hurts your system, now and over time, with prolonged exposure.
The first cigarette you ever took, what it made you feel like – be honest! For most of us it was horrible!
Dizzy, nausea and stomach pains, coughing and maybe watery eyes.
Blood vessels and arteries will grow smaller and your heart-beat fastens significantly. Less oxygen gets to your brain and through your system and you are filling it up with toxins. It is always trying to get itself back in shape and balance, its equilibrium, that is nature’s way!
The relaxation or feeling of euphoria that you experience is not a physical manifestation but a psychological one! You are facing uncertainties, problems, habits and rituals that are part of your life and routine.
Drastic changes in some cases are needed and justified for success and guaranteed results. You are in control of your emotions and process pretty much by utilizing these personally customized hypnotic state, relaxation and visualization techniques.
For the THREE R’s – release, relief, relaxation, you can broker your way through the process to successful outcome. If you know what tensions do to you and why, what makes you reach for that cigarette, then you have won half the battle.
Tension has to be released throughout your body. Tension, fear and other related spasms make you reach for a cigarette to ‘release’ enjoy and have pleasure. Now, all that is changing and changed forever.
Your body is programmed to fight for survival or flee, your muscles primed for response when required. Your mind controls your muscles. So, in order for you to relax, you need to be sending the right types of messages from your mind to your body. You are after-all a whole and total being.
Remember, your mind and body are one! Your nervous system, muscles and mind work together. So when you tense or relax there is interplay between these different elements to make you reach for a relaxant.
In our case you are reaching for a relaxant for quitting, an alternative form of relaxation that will help you relax even more, concentrate and focus on something else and effectively use powerful positive suggestions and thoughts to change your habits and actions and STOP SMOKING altogether.
