How To Stop Smoking Instantly

Is it possible to stop smoking instantly? I believe it is, do you want to know how to do it?

This article will go into a lot of psychological details and I ask you to read it with an open mind. I have a different outlook on smoking due to the vast learning I have done on the subject, so sometimes what I take as facts, others take as fantasy, my job today is to help you realize these facts to be true, so bear with me. I will also provide links for further reading, so if you are not grasping what I am saying, you can read on for more detailed information.

Our whole lives, whether we smoke or not, we are brainwashed into believing that smoking is a precious, enjoyable activity, that many people find near impossible to quit. We see dying men in movies given a cigarette, we see a man about to be executed given a cigarette as his last request. We see people lighting up cigarettes in times of stress, in times of pleasure, and in times of relaxation.

We forget that movies are for the most part, fiction.

When I grew up, I knew that cigarettes were almost impossible to quit, and I had no intention of ever smoking one. I knew that they were supposed to be a great pleasure to those who smoked them, and I believed that there lay the danger. When I did eventually get around to smoking an experimental cigarette, I found it tasted disgusting, made my heart beat incredibly, and I felt dizzy. There was no fear that I would ever become hooked after that, so when my brain started telling me I would like another one, I didn't receive any warning signs. How could somebody get hooked on something so disgusting?

We do not truly understand addiction.

Most of us, even doctors, do not truly understand addiction. Allen Carr taught me that. We do not become addicted to cigarettes because of pleasure, because there IS NO pleasure. We become addicted to cigarettes, because nicotine is a drug, and that is what drug addiction is. Heroin addicts don't receive pleasure from injecting something into their veins, who would? Equally, cigarette smokers receive no pleasure either. It is just the relieving of nicotine cravings that makes us believe we are receiving pleasure. We smoke a cigarette to reduce stress, but we don't reduce the stress, we just reduce the cravings and feel a bit better, therefore we assume we have reduced the stress. We weren't really that stressed in the first place, just craving nicotine. The brainwashing has made the message become confused

So How To Stop Smoking Instantly

Breaking the cycle of nicotine craving is as simple as stopping smoking. Your mind might balk at the idea of quitting, the fear of withdrawal (which is nothing in fact), the belief that it is impossible to stop, the brainwashing, it all combines to make you pretty scared of quitting. Have you ever gone through a long stretch without smoking, where you knew you weren't going to be able to smoke, so you just got on with it? It wasn't as bad as you expected was it?

Within a number of hours your body will start to feel uncomfortable without smoking, but that is it. After 24 hours your body will feel fresher, after 72 hours your body will feel almost purged, and after 3 weeks you will forget what smoking actually felt like. That is how quickly you will heal. The mind is another question though. If you can learn to accept that you are giving up nothing, and learn how to handle the emotional side of your addiction, you will find the quitting is ridiculously easy. So easy, that you wonder why everybody isn't using the same method you used. That is certainly how I feel. I did quit smoking instantly once I had read Allen Carr's book. It didn't require me to cut down, or to use any replacement therapy. I just read the book (and carried on smoking while doing so) then finished reading, chose to quit the next day, quit, and here I am nearly 2 years later.

You could do it faster than that if you wanted. You could quit today, making your body instantly that of an ex-smoker, and then work on your mind-set over the next few days to let yourself catch up with your newly quit body. It wouldn't take a lot of effort. If you don't like reading, there are other resources that you can try, such as DVD or audio books. The point is, you just have to change your thinking like I did, and it will be the easiest thing you will ever have done.

Trust me on this one, writing about and advising others on quitting smoking is what I do now.


Street Talk

Yes. There is a way to quit smoking instantly. Treat tonight after your last smoke before going to bed. Tomorrow, you won't like the taste of cigarette anymore and quit smoking withdrawal syndrome. Contrary to most of other's belief, it is not in the mind or brain that induces one to smoke when he sees someone smoking or smelling a cigarette some and cause him to salivate. The cause is in the taste buds of the smoker. Search and read the article "QUIT SMOKING INSTANTLY by Marlowe Camello".
