I wanna quit smoking and alcohol. I have had this determination since long time but at times, one thing or the other stimulates me. I am unable to save money because of this. Please help...
I think you will enjoy reading LOUISE HAY You Can Heal Your Life. Amazing book. Go to the book store and check it out.
Also check out Abe Hicks and addictions. I will look for a good video for you! :) YOU CAN DO THIS and in fact YOU WILL! All is well!
p.s. YOU ARE ON YOUR WAY!
hommm me too!!! I am a smoking addict!! I smoke cigarettes and I can't stop. I did manage to drop down the consumption but when something comes up, I again over go the consumption of nicotine and my money then just "disappear"
my goal is to stop before the end of this year I must be a none smoker. I am making that my promise!!
greets and success also,
They are crutches - period. They are helping you get from point A to point B with less anxiety or to support or defend a behaviour. If you quit- you'll see pretty quickly what kind of behaviour/ circumstance it is helping to cover up. *That's* the tough work to do... to figure out that behaviour and develop some healthy habits around those. I'd pick one to kick first, probably smoking. Quit cold turkey -- and just see what happens. It will suck for three days, then two weeks, and then after that you'll have to worry about behaviour modification.
Good luck - neither of those are easy, but the crux is that you are using both to help your functioning in some way. Look at it that way and it might help you reveal what the inner truth is from there... or help you uncover whatever it is that needs uncovering.
Try reading The Power of Habit by Charles Duhigg. It's fairly new and the gist of it is, you can replace any habit by replacing what you do after your "trigger". I found it free online or you can always borrow it from the library if you don't feel like buying it.
Or use the app "Lift" which encourages you to click a check mark for everyday you don't smoke or drink or anything else you'd like to do or not do.
People are visual creatures. We like to see a chain - like, "look how many days in a row I did this!" that's why we play those stupid games like Angry Birds or Where's my Perry or Cut the Rope because they're so easy to finish a level and it's unending.
Once you cut your goal down into small chunks, it just becomes "I just need to not smoke for this hour, this day, next day" Take it day by day, go to A.A (Okay I only said that because it rhymes, but I know SO MANY people who benefit from A.A. and all you need to have is the "desire to quit")
Hope this helps!
