There is one thing that patches, Champix and vaping don’t help with, what to do with stress, emotions and boredom.
I have consulted with 2000 smokers who wanted freedom from smoking. They had quit before yet started again. In nearly 100% of cases they were stressed by something like; marriage issues, workplace drama and health concerns.
* Not one of the 2000 people was craving nicotine! They were wanting to feel better.
When I was 16 years old my Dad passed away. After the funeral, I noticed people were smoking and having a few beers. I thought to myself, “Isn’t this the time to deal with my raw feelings, not numb them.”
In order to squash a dependence long term, a remedy for difficult feelings is useful.
My top 10 are:
2. Being grateful for what I have
4. Support from friends
5. Working on myself (not blaming others)
7. Having fun
8. Eating properly
9. Healthy distraction
10. Be real with my feelings, not cover them up
