Quit Smoking Products

There are many quit smoking products on the market today. The trouble is that most of them don’t address the hardest part about quitting smoking, which is the psychological addiction to cigarettes.
Everyone knows that smoking causes cancer and a whole host of other physical ailments. Everyone has seen the pictures of diseased lungs and the trauma caused by cigarettes yet continues to smoke. Why is it so hard to stop smoking? The answer is we have programmed our minds to accept cigarettes as an integral part of our lives.

We smoke when we have a cup of coffee in the morning, we smoke after a meal and we smoke on our work breaks. We are conditioned to associate many of our daily activities with smoking, making it nearly impossible to resist the urge and quit smoking. Now we could change our activities and try a new routine but that would probably be harder than quitting smoking.
I have tried the nicotine gum and nicotine patches. All that did was feed my nicotine addictions and make me want to smoke more. When I was chewing the nicotine gum I found myself craving the gum where it got to the point that I always had the gum in my mouth. When I used the patch I also chewed the gum. Now I was getting a double dose of nicotine and making me crave it more.
What we need to do is re-program the way we think about cigarettes. We have to learn to not associate smoking with our daily activities and remove it from our mind set. We have to trick our minds into believing that we are non-smokers. Every time I wanted a cigarette I would remind myself that I was a non-smoker and why would I smoke a cigarette. It started to work but I found that my associations to smoking were starting to win me over.
I re-doubled my efforts and began using hypnosis as a way to re-train my subconscious mind into accepting the reality that I am a non-smoker. After several weeks I noticed that my cravings were becoming less and less intrusive and I was able to eliminate these insane cravings. I was no longer associating all my daily activities with smoking. It still took will power but I found that it was easier for me to just say no.
After having smoked for twenty years I am now smoke free and still trying to figure out why in the world I ever started smoking. I have completely re-programmed the way I think about smoking and will never smoke again.
