Abstaining from smoking means denying yourself the cigarette you desire. It means constantly using your willpower to resist smoking.
When you abstain, you always have to fight against your desire, which is painful.
Because resisting something you desire requires more willpower than bending this spoon with your mind.
On the other hand…
Quitting smoking means not wanting to smoke anymore. It means coping with the ups and downs of life without having to puff away on a cigarette.
When something reminds you of smoking, like drinking your coffee or alcohol, driving, or taking a break… you don’t think of how much you want a cigarette.
Instead, you think: “How nice it is to enjoy little pleasures without having to choke myself with 4000 chemicals!”
Abstaining from smoking means PAUSING your habit. Quitting smoking means ENDING it.
When you pause your addiction, you are doomed to resume it. When you end it, you are free.
That’s why abstaining and quitting is the difference between a miserable and a happy smoke-free life.
Can you see that now?
The right way to quit smoking shows you how to stop wanting and needing cigarettes.
The wrong way makes you abstain.
If you have failed to quit before with the common quit smoking methods, is because you were abstaining! Not quitting.
How The Common Quit Smoking Methods Work
Products like patches, gums, lozenges and vaping contain nicotine; the same substance that makes cigarettes addictive.
These methods keep you addicted to nicotine and make you abstain from the real thing. So, you get the worst of both worlds.
You are both addicted and deprived.
Instead of quitting this addiction, you just pause it until the inevitable relapse.
Smoking pills are harmful chemicals that help with the nicotine cravings. But medication does not eliminate your addiction or break the habit of smoking. You still want to smoke when you feel anxious or have a drink. So you use your willpower to abstain.
That’s why many smokers continue lighting up while taking this medication.
When you go cold turkey, you use willpower to resist the cigarette you crave. So you feel you’re missing something, which makes the thought of a cigarette even more precious.
See, feeling deprived is the biggest sign that you are forcefully abstaining from smoking.
And this is not a way to live. Constantly struggling and living in fear of relapsing in a weak moment.
But, why do all these methods make you abstain and not really quit?
It all comes down to this:
All these methods deal only with the physical aspect of your smoking addiction.
But if physical addiction was the real problem…
Then why do ex-smokers relapse even after the withdrawal period is over?
Even when there’s not a single trace of nicotine in their body?
What can cause someone to smoke, 1 month or even 1 year after overcoming their nicotine addiction?
There’s more to the story.
Smoking is merely a physical addiction, and mostly a mental one.
In fact, 80% of the smoking addiction, is made up of the mental dependence on smoking.
The mental dependence on smoking is your desire for cigarettes. In other words, how smoking makes you feel and how much you need it.
And only 20% of smoking, is the physical addiction to nicotine. That filthy substance that first hooked you to this habit.
Think about it.
When you sleep, you don’t smoke for 7 or 8 hours straight. If your physical addiction was the real problem, then it would wake you up every 1 hour to smoke.
But it doesn’t.
Because it only makes up 20% of your addiction.
But what happens if you go 8 straight hours without smoking during your day?
All hell breaks loose.
You’d go crazy.
Because your mind is awake.
And your mind (read: mental addiction) reminds you to smoke every time you talk on the phone, finish your meal, and feel stressed or bored.
That’s the mental dependence on smoking. That’s 80% of this addiction.
And unless you remove the mental part, you can’t really quit. You can only abstain… and struggle.
The right way to quit is to remove your mental addiction, which is your core desire for smoking.
The wrong way to quit addresses only your physical addiction.
Dealing only with the 20% of your addiction gives you a maximum of 20% chances to quit successfully.
No wonder why quitting seems hard!
But… and here comes the key to quitting easily:
What if you removed your desire for smoking – the 80% of your habit -, to begin with?
Then you wouldn’t want to smoke anymore, so you would quit naturally and easily.
And there’s a specific way to remove your mental addiction without suffering.
That’s the secret that thousands of happy ex-smokers have used to quit forever…
