Your thoughts before your smokes, MATTER!
...and can make all the difference in your smoking rituals
Let’s get to the root of things here. Have you ever noticed at what times of the day, or under which circumstances you are most motivated to smoke? Have you ever tried to notice it? If you pay attention, you will realize that most of the times, you want to smoke because of one of the following reasons:
- Because you are anxious about something
- Because you need to put your stress under control
- To soothe yourself
- To bring balance to an emotional disturbance
- Just because it is a ritual (eg. Smoking after lunch)
The same reasons that are motivating you to smoke are the same reasons that are undermining your attempts to stop smoking. You made a habit of calming yourself down with a smoke and you made a habit of smoking on specific times of the day, and now you want to break that bad habit.
Psychological factors play a major role in your smoking routine. The first step is identifying the root psychological causes that lead your hand to fire yet another cigarette.
What are you thinking when you are lighting it?
What are you expecting it to create within yourself while you are smoking it?
Answer these questions, and find what external factors cause you to need to smoke that cigarette. Keep them in mind. It is those reasons that you have to address and focus on, instead of focusing on self-discipline alone.
Learn how to deal with the difficulties and the things that stress you out in life instead of learning how to control your desire to smoke when you are feeling overwhelmed and stressed.
If you are committed to quit smoking, you have to bear the aforementioned facts in mind. And you have to fight for breaking this bad habit. Of course you won’t be alone in this journey. You have us, to support you. Don’t take us lightly. Follow the instructions and complete the tasks wholeheartedly.
The action plan is simple, and it works. But you have to remember; nothing can replace your determination and persistence. If you fight for this, we can guarantee you that you will come out a better person not only by being healthier, but also being a stronger and happier person in general.
Breaking The Anchors
You want to stop smoking. You really want to, but every time you are done with lunch you just HAVE TO make that smoke! It’s like...you already feel it in your mouth once you are done eating...
In neuro-linguistic programming in psychology, there is a phenomenon described, called «anchoring».
Anchoring is a phenomenon where two events, when repeated together for a while, start to also stick together and be perceived inseparable in one’s mind. That way, when the first event occurs, the subconscious mind recalls and directly requests the second one. A good example is when you visit a place a lot with your boyfriend/girlfriend. When you break up, and you are about to visit that place again, you will automatically and helplessly think of your ex again, because your mind has anchored that place with that face.
In the case when these two events are habits, the subconscious mind connects both events into one, united event. That means that when you perform the first habit (eg. eating) your subconscious mind does not separate it from the second event (eg. Smoking), and imposes you to continue the structure that you have taught it (eg, you eat then you smoke. Your brain makes this thinking process automatic).
Now, how can you break anchors?
First, you have to identify the occasions where there is anchoring. Do you tend to smoke every morning before you go to work? Do you smoke after meals? At the work breaks? All these, if they are performed on a habitual basis, have created anchors.
Once you have identified them, decide to just remove the connection between them. Perform the same habits, but NOT together anymore. That means that if you want to disconnect a meal with a smoke decide on one day to smoke 1 hour after lunch instead of immediately after lunch. The next day decide to smoke before lunch than after lunch. Scatter the time that you decide to smoke every day at and be aware not to create new anchors trying to break the old ones. That will make your process of deciding to quit a lot more easy when you decide to remove cigarettes from your life altogether.
When to decide to quit smoking
When someone decides to quit smoking on a good day, when his spirits are up and he has confidence in his decision, he can do it easily and keep up because his willpower is at a strong state. When you are on a good day, you have good moods, and your willpower tends to be very much under your control. It is very rare for someone to compromise his willpower on a day like this.
There is a significant downside to the above scenario. When a bad day arrives ( as they always do, they come and go), one’s confidence tends to get affected, and the willpower tends to get weaker. It becomes then so easy to just give up on that bad day and indulge on the desire to have just another smoke. After all, there is only so much one can take.
Decide to quit smoking on a bad, BAD day. Doing it on a day when your confidence and willpower is down, will give you a much more solid basis to start from. If you make it, and you really decide to do it on a bad day then you will have the strength to face and go through all the other days. When you take a decision on a day with low willpower every other day seems easier, because you will be having more willpower than what you had on that bad one. Add to that, that a sense of empowerment will come right back at you and you will start taking into your hands not only your smoking habit situation, but also the circumstances that turned your day into a bad event!
