If you too believe that your cigarettes have a permanent hold on you and want to know what is the most effective way to quit smoking easily… then you may want to read carefully what I’m about to share with you.
Because the next lines will reveal things you’ve never seen before.
See, when we search for effective ways to quit smoking, we often follow the advice of books, online resources, companies and even some doctors.
But certain things we’re advised to do… make it harder for us quit.
Things you might be doing right now, or plan to do in your next quit attempt… that can single-handedly cause you to fail and struggle.
But this is going to be different. I want to show you what is the most effective way to quit smoking.
And by effective, I mean the easiest way to stop smoking naturally without suffering from cravings, anxiety and without missing the cigarette friend ever again.
But before I get into that, I need to give you a fair warning.
You are not going to quit smoking just by reading these lines.
It’s like reading a book on the most effective way to lose weight. The book might give you all the explanations, solutions and tools you need… But if you don’t apply them… then it’s virtually impossible to shed these pounds.
Same here. Reading about the most effective way to stop smoking naturally, won’t make you quit. But it will show you how to stop smoking cigarettes and find it easy.
And if you apply this information, you WILL quit – even if you feel you need smoking more than anything else.
I can promise you that.
Why I Can Show You The Most Effective Way to Quit Smoking
My name is Nasia Davos; I’m a Psychologist and Smoking Cessation expert, and I used to smoke around a pack a day for 10 years.
What drove me to quit, was losing a loved one to smoking. (I will tell you this story another time.)
And although I might not have smoked for as long as you have or as much as you are smoking… we have something in common: I found it impossible to cope without my cigarettes.
In fact, I was convinced that quitting is hard and beyond my power.
Until I discovered the real reason why we find quitting hard.
When I did – I will share with you that reason in a bit – I was able to find a solution that every smoker can use to quit smoking naturally without willpower.
That’s how my team and I developed the CBQ method.
The CBQ is a 4-stage quit smoking method that is known for changing how your mind thinks about and experiences smoking. The CBQ has been featured on:
- TED talks
- The Huffington Post
- NBC News
- CBC News and much more…
…Because it has 94% success rate. 85% of smokers quit permanently on their first attempt, and 9% quit on their second or third attempt.
You might find this hard to believe at the moment. But all I’m asking is to keep an open mind.
See, every year only 6% of the smokers who try to quit eventually succeed.
This number is just too low. It means that 9 out of 10 people can’t quit this addiction…
One of these people was Lisa.
Lisa was in her late 40s and was smoking 2 packs a day for 27 years. She was married with two beautiful children ages 6 and 8.
And a few months ago she contacted me to help her quit smoking.
What pushed her over the edge was waking up one day with a severe cough and unexplained chest pains.
She told me: “The first thing that came to my mind was.. that’s it..the pain has to be from smoking.”
“I was terrified… Well, the pain and cough eventually stopped, but I was still worried. I was thinking, what if I have a heart attack next time? What if something happens and nobody is around to help me? What if I have damaged my health for good?…I just didn’t want to take any chances. I have to be there for my family… so I decided to quit. “
But Lisa was afraid of failing.
See, in the past, she tried to quit with vaping, nicotine gums and smoking pills…. but nothing worked. It was just too hard to cope with the stress, the cravings, the lashing out and the weight gain.
She always ended up smoking again.
And you know, that first cigarette after relapsing gives you the greatest relief and the greatest regret.
Relief because it ends your momentary suffering.
Regret because all the pain you went through was for nothing.
(Maybe you’ve been there. I know I have.)
What Makes Quitting So Hard
When Lisa told me she couldn’t quit because it’s hard, I told her: “Quitting is easy.”
She must have thought I was insane. She said: “How can you say that? If it’s easy why can’t I stop craving the darn things? Why do I have all these side effects?”
I said: “All the side effects of quitting smoking… the stress, the weight gain, the irresistible cravings, the anger, the deprivation… are NOT the reason why quitting is hard.
Side effects are only symptoms of the real problem: that we are quitting the wrong way.”
She said: “what do you mean?”
I said: “If you’ve ever felt you don’t have enough willpower to resist cigarettes… is because you were quitting the wrong way.
It’s never been your fault.
Imagine you’re trying to bake a cake for the first time. If you don’t follow the right recipe- or any recipe at all- you will find it really hard to bake that cake!
You will have to guess what ingredients you need, in what sequence and how to mix them.
You will try and fail until you come to the conclusion that baking a cake is hard. But in fact, it is not hard at all. It’s hard when you’re preparing it the wrong way and easy when you’re following the right steps.
Same goes for stopping smoking.
Quitting is easy. But when we quit the wrong way, it becomes hard, and we experience side effects.
The right way to quit is effective and easy. The wrong way is hard, and it doesn’t last.”
Lisa whispered: “Wow I’ve never thought about it like this… “
“So what is the easiest way to quit smoking? What is the wrong way and what is the right way?”
The Right Way and the Wrong Way to Quit Smoking
Quitting smoking the right way means turning a new page in your life. It means having closure and feeling ready to move on.
When you’re trying to quit the wrong way, you’re actually abstaining from smoking cigarettes.
But what is the difference between“quitting” and “abstaining”?
