If you believe that your cigarettes have a permanent hold on you and you’re looking for a real solution to help you quit for good, then you may want to read carefully what I’m about to share with you.
Because the next few pages will reveal things you’ve never seen before.
When we search for the best way to quit smoking, we often end up with generic advice from online articles, books, companies and medical professionals trying to promote nicotine products.
But the advice we get rarely works… and in most cases, makes quitting harder.
The truth is, there are things you are doing right now, or plan to do in your next quit attempt… that can single-handedly cause you to struggle and fail.
But what I’m about to share with you is going to be different.
I will show you what is the most effective way to quit smoking. And most importantly, WHY and how it works.
And when I say effective, I mean the easiest way to stop smoking naturally without suffering from cravings and without missing cigarettes ever again.
Because quitting while missing cigarettes isn’t going to work. It’s a recipe for failure.
And you probably know that.
So this information is going to be different, and you’ll see why as you keep reading.
But before I get into that, I need to give you a fair warning.
Going through the next few pages will give you some “Aha Moments” and valuable insights on how to quit successfully…
But you are not going to quit just by reading words on a page.
The same way, reading a book about losing weight won’t make you shed a single pound unless you apply the solutions and tools you learned.
Same here. Learning how to stop smoking effectively, won’t make you quit. But it will show you how to do it and find it easy.
Even if you’ve been smoking for years, spend a lot of time with other smokers, or believe you NEED cigarettes to cope with the ups and downs of life.
I can promise you that.
Why I Can Show You The Most Effective Way to Quit Smoking
And … why should you listen to me?
My name is Nasia Davos; I’m a Psychologist, author, certified Life Coach, and Smoking Cessation Coach.
And most importantly… I used to be a smoker too.
I used to smoke nearly 1 pack a day.
My wake up call was losing my cousin at the age of 43 from lung cancer due to smoking.
And yes, even after that tragedy, I still found it impossible to quit and cope without my cigarettes.
After failing multiple times and trying several methods, I was convinced that quitting is hard and I can’t do it.
I thought I was doomed to smoke forever.
Until I discovered the real reason why quitting seems hard. (Which I’ll share with you in a bit)
What I discovered, enabled me to create a process that helped many smokers quit without struggling, without using willpower and without any nicotine substitutes.
And after years of research, my team and I finally developed the CBQ method. (Cognitive Behavioural Quitting.)
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 a 94% success rate. 85% of smokers quit permanently on their first attempt, and 9% quit on their second or third attempt.
I know this might seem too good to be true, or maybe hard to believe. So all I’m asking is to keep an open mind and suspend that disbelief – just for now.
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 smokers can’t quit this addiction…
One of them was Lisa, who reached out to me a few months ago.
Lisa was in her mid-40s, married with two beautiful children ages 8 and 11.
She was smoking 2 packs a day for 27 years and, in her own words, “loved smoking.”
However, few months ago, after waking up with a severe cough and unexplained chest pains, she reached out for help.
Lisa said: “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 faded out, 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? Is it too late to quit and be healthy? Honestly, I just didn’t want to risk not being there for my family. I knew it was time to quit.”
But Lisa, like all of us, was afraid of failing.
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 ended up smoking again. Every single time.
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 too. I know I have.)
What Makes Quitting So Hard
When Lisa told me she couldn’t quit because it’s hard, I said: “Quitting is easy.”
She must have thought I was nuts. She said: “How can you say that? If it’s easy then why can’t I stop craving the darn things? Why do I have all these side effects?”
I explained that “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 think you don’t have enough willpower to resist cigarettes… is because you’re trying to quit the wrong way.
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!
But it’s easy if you follow the right steps, and do it the right way.
The same goes for quitting smoking.
It is easy. But when you quit the wrong way, it becomes hard, and you experience side effects.
The right way to quit is effective and easy. The wrong way is hard, and it doesn’t last.”
Lisa, still in disbelief, said: “Ok I’ve never thought about it like this. So…”
“What is the wrong way and what is the right way?”
The Right and the Wrong Way to Quit Smoking
Quitting smoking the right way means having closure and feeling ready to move on. It means you really QUIT, and do not still desire or crave a cigarette.
The wrong way, means you are abstaining from smoking for prolonged periods of time while trying to resist it with willpower.
But… what is the difference between “Quitting” and “Abstaining”?
