STEP BY STEP FIVE, FAST QUITTERS LIST & THRIVE

TAKE IT PERSONAL, MAKE IT PERSONAL!

3 QUESTIONS ABOUT THE FAST QUITTING LIST


Quitting fast the addiction to nicotine and tobacco is the type of decision, attitude, mood, and the kind of acting and reacting to everything that needs very good motivation in order to be successful for ever.



The best way to organize, keep at hand, complete and refresh fast quitters’ motivation is TO LIST all the best personal reasons to fast stop tobacco and nicotine.

STEP BY STEP 5, LIST,QUIT & THRIVE


The best way to make the fast quitting LIST useful is to read it at least once a day, every day and to add it with more and more personal quitting reasons.


1.”One, two quitting reasons are enough?”


Quitters who really want to thrive, to be successful and not restart smoking after a shorter or a longer period of time, never limit their fast quitting LIST to few motives to stop smoking for ever.


2.”How many quitting reasons should be in a LIST of a successful quitter?”


The more, the better!


The length of the fast quitting LIST reflects the knowledge of the quitter about the implications at many different levels, from different perspectives of the use of tobacco and nicotine. The more reasons the quitter has to give up smoking, the stronger his/her motivation to be successful and to not permit any longer to the nicotine addiction to manipulate and control all quitter’s decisions. Each reason of the fast quitting LIST, as well as the LIST itself is a powerful reminder and help to use against the multiple events that may cause restarting the old habit. Forgetfulness – caused by the addiction – cravings and all the outer, social temptations meant to prevent quitting can be easily neutralized having a look into the personal fast quitting LIST and choosing the most appropriate reason(s) to stay strong and win. This LIST and its reasons can and have to be used not only in the beginning of the quitting process, but also months or years, even decades after a successful quitting, in order to prevent relapses.

COUNT THE PERSONAL REASONS TO QUIT t&n


The number of reasons of the LIST is directly proportional to the speed the quitter gets steady results. 20 personal reasons to quit will help to beat the addiction faster than 10 personal reasons. A long LIST of personal reasons shows more awareness, more commitment and proves a stronger will if compared with a short one.


3.”Why personal reasons and not just reasons?”


When you are a quitter and, as a quitter you state that you stop smoking for medical reasons, that’s very general and it’s not as efficient and as impacting as it is when you elaborate and present your quitting reasons, making yourself the subject of a first person, convincing, complex assertion – included in your LIST : “I quit nicotine and tobacco because my health is more important than smoking. I quit because I am aware that all human beings – including me – have weaker parts (here it’s useful to prove yourself that you know precisely what are yours) that can be made even weaker by daily, voluntary intoxication and I do not want to harm myself anymore. I quit because I prefer a life without the pain, suffering and disabilities caused by the consequences of the tobacco & nicotine addiction.”


Another example : Saying – and including in your LIST – that you quit smoking because you do not want to burn money anymore is too little.

SMOKERS BURN THE MONEY OF THE WORLD


But if you mention the exact amount of YOUR own money – plus their currency – YOU have burnt in the last year/few years/decade(s), what kind of extremely bad business you’ve done and what other profitable things YOU could have done with all that burnt money, you get a really useful article in your personal, fast quitting LIST. Such personalized articles of the quitting LIST can not so easily be ignored and even if you read them several times, you can still find aspects to make you attentive and thoughtful about the powerful manipulation of nicotine upon smokers, about your urgent need to stop it for ever and about the huge benefits of that wise choice.

LIST OF PERSONAL REASONS TO QUIT FAST TOBACCO & NICOTINE


The addiction to nicotine – like all other addictions – tends to make things to look impersonal and builds the nicotine/drug shields around the addicts in such a way that smokers do not see and do not realize what’s obvious for the nonsmokers. The addicts consider themselves above risks, above logics and above responsibilities in the aria of their addiction and very often far beyond, in many other arias of their lives, quite because of their addiction.


Fast, successful quitting is about fast taking and making everything – the LIST, the risks and the responsibilities included – as personal as possible and as they really are.

  1. TOO many smokers all around ! Why do they smoke, for God’s sake ? What can be done to change that ? What could I do, how could I get myself involved in order to see results?

    • For instance you could send links towards this site to all smokers’ friends you know on all social media you visit.

  2. YOU ARE PERFECTLY RIGHT, U KNOW… SMOKING IS PERSONAL, FAILURE IS PERSONAL,DEATH IS PERSONAL, SUFFERING IS PERSONAL, ALSO SUCCESS IS AND QUITTING BAD HABITS, TOO.
    THANKS FOR THIS GREAT IDEA !

  3. Most smokers do not look for info about smoking. No questions, no doubts. They are very pleased with themselves an their sensations created by t&n (as u call them on this site). Besides they do not care about what non smokers say about all sort of cigs and generally they care very little (if at all) about others. I do not think that your site can change that and I’m afraid that you can not help any of the above stop smoking.

    • You’re right. In spite of the very well described situation, the hope comes from the smokers who dream to escape their addiction and want to become successful quitters for life.

  4. Smokers should be not suspected for sense of responsibility. Neither other drug addicts. Besides responsibility is considered – by the huge majority – more a burden than a quality to cultivate. It may be useful only for highly educated and very caring quitters. For the others…

  5. Outstanding and new the idea with the list, or at least new for me. Also very good and convincing. Thanks. I’ll take the first step of TOP 10 on Monday , the 30th of March. Wish me to reach soon the fifth step!

  6. Pingback: SUCCESS !

  7. What I like most on this post is that you clearly give a life-long perspective to the relationship between the ex-smoker and his previous addiction. A very deep point of view that tells me that TOP 10 can be also my answer to all my questions regarding quitting.
    LET’S BET that on May 25 I will have climbed all the TOP 10 steps and I will have become a successful quitter for more than one month.
    Achievable, what do you think ?

  8. Most teachers of my son are havy smokers. He admires them. They are good people and competent in their arias, it’s out of quest to change school or teachers with other nonsmoking teachers. What else could I do to not have my son contaminated with this disgusting habit ?

  9. Kids are not stupid. If the kid has extensive, complete info about the addiction to tobacco and nicotine, about the way this controlls the brain, the behaviour and controlls all decisions of the smoker, he/she will react normally and not accept cigarettes. Trust your kid and give him as much as possible info about the short and long term consequences of the most common addiction on earth. Use this site and send your kid and all his mates here. For kids and for everyone the best protection is information.

  10. I could not have stated better than you, Profe !
    The only thing to add is that I hope, dear mom, that your kid does not have a smoker in his own family. The personal exemple is far more important and more likely to be followed than any wise and reasonable advice.
