Quit Smoking More Easily--
Hi, how are you? Many of my clients say they are hurtin' after the holidays. You, too? Time to get back on track.
Let's talk about New Year's Resolutions. Are you trying to quit smoking this year? I heard it's in the top 5 for resolutions. I know that quitting smoking was my resolution for many years. Whatever your resolution, the following process of change applies.
Are you tired of forking out money for cigarettes? Fed up with trying to quit and failing again? Afraid to even try, cause you know it is an addiction equal to that of heroin? Take heart, there is hope.
I finally kicked the habit 3 years ago and I've developed a Quit Smoking Forever Program through my 29 years of failing to quit (I know how tough it is and I learned a lot!) and based upon my last and final attempt to quit along with my new-found ability to remain smoke-free.
You see, I had quit smoking for days, weeks, months, and up to one full year at a time before--and always went back to cigarettes, either when under stress or deciding to bum 'just one' from somebody who was smoking near me or whatever other excuse I could come up with.
I finally found the keys to making the quitting process easier to get through. Believe me, I've quit smoking over 100 times and I suffered through a lot before discovering these keys which make up part of my new Quit Smoking Forever Program.
Along with that, there are 6 stages to change, according to the authors of the book, "Changing for Good" by Prochaska, Norcross, and DiClemente, found at
This goes for quitting smoking or making any other changes you wish to make in your life.
The first stage is Pre-contemplation. This is basically the stage of denial, where a person does not acknowledge that they need to change. Some of you may be in this stage, telling yourself that smoking does not affect your health and that your grandmother smoked until she was 92, so you can smoke without harm to yourself, too. If you wish to remain in this stage, you are fooling yourself. Look into the research about smoking and face the consequences of your actions.
The next stage of change is Contemplation. Many of you may be stuck in this stage. You know you need to quit smoking, but you are not ready to attempt it. Or, you attempt to quit, but it doesn't last very long and you are back to smoking and to knowing that you need to quit--someday.
The third stage is one that is often left out and is the first important stage of my Quit Smoking Forever Program. This is the Preparation Stage. In my program, we spend 1-2 months of preparation to get you fully ready to lose what has essentially become your best friend in many sitations.
You may start this class without a strong desire to quit, because creating the desire to quit along with the knowledge and confidence that you are capable of quitting is part of the process. We'll use 9 processes of change, when you sign up for the full money-back guaranteed program, to help you make this move from smoker to non-smoker.
There is a lot more going on in this third phase, plus there are three more stages to the changing process that are necessary to ensure your success in quitting smoking once and for all. You can find out more in my Free Teleclass held at noon Central Time, the next two Wednesdays in January, 2008. Sign up on this page:
