Are you determined to stop smoking but find it difficult and frustrating? You are not alone, millions of people struggle with quitting and staying quit.
I was on my fourth day of trying to stop smoking; each morning I would wake and tell myself today is the day and I would end up failing miserably. I wanted to stop smoking more than anything but somehow that little voice in my head convinced me to smoke “just” one more day. I probably could have gone on like this for months before giving up and accepting the fact that I am a smoker but that isn’t who I am or who I wanted to be. I was determined to stop and eventually did!
Determination, persistence and positive thinking are important when it comes to stopping smoking. Your mind is going to play tricks on you; trying to convince you that one more day won’t hurt but that day can easily turn into a week, month or years. If you are determined to stop then you will be successful as long as you stay determined – Don’t give up! Remember you are breaking a powerful addiction that has a physical and psychological hold on you.
