Most smokers sincerely want to quit. They know cigarettes threaten their health, set a bad example for their children, annoy their acquaintances and cost an inordinate amount of money.
Nobody can force a smoker to quit. It's something each person has to decide for himself, and will require a personal commitment by the smoker. What kind of smoker are you? What do you get out of smoking? What does it do for you? It is important to identify what you use smoking for and what kind of satisfaction you feel that you are getting from smoking.
Many smokers use the cigarette as a kind of crutch in moments of stress or discomfort, and on occasion it may work; the cigarette is sometimes used as a tranquilizer. But the heavy smoker, the person who tries to handle severe personal problems by smoking heavily all day long, is apt to discover that cigarettes do not help him deal with his problems effectively.
When it comes to quitting, this kind of smoker may find it easy to stop when everything is going well, but may be tempted to start again in a time of crisis. Physical exertion, eating, drinking, or social activity in moderation may serve as useful substitutes for cigarettes, even in times of tension. The choice of a substitute depends on what will achieve the same effects without having any appreciable risk.
Once a smoker understands his own smoking behavior, he will be able to cope more successfully and select the best quitting approaches for himself and the type of life-style he leads.
Because smoking is a form of addiction, 80 percent of smoker who quit usually experience some withdrawal symptoms. These may include headache, light-headedness, nausea, diarrhea, and chest pains. Psychological symptoms, such as anxiety, short-term depression, and inability to concentrate, may also appear. The main psychological symptom is increased irritability. People become so irritable, in fact, that they say they feel "like killing somebody." Yet there is no evidence that quitting smoking leads to physical violence.
Some people seem to lose all their energy and drive, wanting only to sleep. Others react in exactly the opposite way, becoming so over energized they can't find enough activity to burn off their excess energy. For instance, one woman said she cleaned out all her closets completely and was ready to go next door to start on her neighbor's. Both these extremes, however, eventually level off. The symptoms may be intense for two or three days, but within 10 to 14 days after quitting, most subside. The truth is that after people quit smoking, they have more energy, they generally will need less sleep, and feel better about themselves.
Quitting smoking not only extends the ex-smoker's life, but adds new happiness and meaning to one's current life. Most smokers state that immediately after they quit smoking, they start noticing dramatic differences in their overall health and vitality.
Quitting is beneficial at any age, no matter how long a person has been smoking. The mortality ratio of ex-smoker decreases after quitting. If the patient quits before a serious disease has developed, his body may eventually be able to restore itself almost completely
To Stop forever in 38 MINUTES

You see, regardless of how confident you are, the media
keeps reporting all the BAD NEWS throughout our world
today. So many are feeling like there is NOTHING they
can do to change their situation.
Everywhere I go, people are easily depressed.
They talk about how the economy is awful, the millions
of jobs lost and more coming, people getting laid off,
the threats of war and terrorism and so much other
doom and gloom.
As you look around at your surroundings, there are
still lots of people who are EXTREMELY confident
about their circumstances even though all the bad
news continues haunting us over and over again.
How is that possible? You might ask yourself…
Why is it there are so many people who are still
HAPPY, while you aren’t?
In today’s article…
I am going to share with you EXACTLY how so many
I know can be extremely happy and even confident
that their lives will always be full of abundance.
You see, I don’t know what your current circumstances
are. I do know that everything that you know about the
current recession is all OUTSIDE of your reality. The
doom and gloom comes from one bad seed after another
that the media and other NEGATIVE people surrounding
you are planting to scare you and diminish your life.
If you can shut out the NEGATIVE chatter and IGNORE
what they say, what you hear, your mind will FOCUS on
reaching your goals. Their negativity need NOT result
in YOUR OWN NEGATIVE self-talk!
Look all around you. There are still people who are
spending freely at the grocery store, movie theater,
shopping mall, and everywhere else.
Ask yourself these questions:
“Why do they buy products?”
“Why do they still spend the money?”
“Why do they pay for entertainment?”
What I am trying to tell you is regarless of whether
we are in a recession or not, there is ONE TRILLION
DOLLARS spent per day. People are still spending
money all the time.
The only difference is… many more people today want
to make sure that every single dollar that they spend
is worth the value they get in return.
So, how you perceive your situation totally determines
whether you will EXPECT SUCCESS and MANIFEST it as a
self-fulfilling prophesy….or expect to struggle,
suffer, and fail - and manifest that just as easily!
Are we really in recession?
Are we really in crisis? (OR)
Has the MEDIA brainwashed your thoughts into expecting
doom and gloom? Has the MEDIA scared so many into
feeling miserably and to cutting back, so much that
our society has bought into these fears and manifested
them as a result!
The key point I am trying to mention to you is…
“STOP LISTENING TO THE NEGATIVE NEWS”
“STOP LISTENING TO YOUR OWN FEARS AND
Stop listening to those people that are negative about
life. Did you know that many see this “crisis” as a
blessing and EXPECT to profit because of it?
How is that possible?
LOOK. Have you seen the price of the food go down?
Did you see the gas prices DROP to $1.50 from $4.37
Stock prices are now at bargain basement levels and
being scooped up by those who KNOW that our current
down cycle will eventually be followed by an upward
cycle where everyone will want to buy at the higher
prices when the masses flood back in!

I am not sure why I remember the following but I do.
The year is 1993 I am escorting a Chaplain in Somalia.
The perimeter is still hot as the bad guys are always looking to raise havoc.
What puzzles me is the Chaplain I'm escorting did not carry a weapon.
Was it FAITH or STUPIDITY?
I on the other hand was heavily armed. Few could comprehend how much munitions I had strapped to me 24/7.
As we went from bunker to bunker talking to the troops he strolled along like we were in a park on a Sunday afternoon (remember it is 2am pitch black and eerie, okay scary too).
I ask him about a weapon and he said "he did not need one, never carried one, and did not have a use for one".
I thought Hell he does not need an escort he needs a straight jacket. What the hell was I doing there!
I'm not sure.
Looking back it was the Law of Attraction and Faith
I'll try to explain,
When the Watchman at the Gate, i.e. the conscious mind is off duty the unconscious mind is unguarded. The unconscious mind never sleeps, it never rest.
So when the Watchman allows the negative thoughts (bad guys) to enter the perimeter and state certain thoughts. Those thoughts set other forces in motion and a desired or undesired result is attained.
The subconscious cannot argue. If a wrong suggestion is placed within it must be overcome by a strong counter suggestion, one with feeling, emotion and one that may require massive action.
To further enhance my enlightened state my watchman at the gate allowed me to have a beautiful dream last night.
I was in back in Iraq with a very close friend,
There was a beautiful night sky and a very odd cloud formation covering half of the sky, we were at peace.
So this morning at 5am when I was walking my dog I see the same sky with the same odd cloud formation.
I was at peace and I missed my friend.
My friend was with me in Iraq and this morning in my thoughts.
The watchman allowed a forgotten memory past the perimeter.
Fortunately this was to be a positive, healthy, and healing memory. (Not all of them are)
It is not what happens on the outside that matters it is what happens within me that matters.
Because what happens "within" eventually will manifest itself "without".
Look in the mirror and you will see exactly what I am talking about.
Look around your house, (Is it a mess
Look at the interior of your car. (Is it a mess
Look in the eyes of a stranger or a family member.
What do you see?
What do you feel?
Here is a quote from a man who assisted me and others more than he will ever know
"It is important to exercise conscious control over our thoughts. Every thought has a bearing on that which appears in our life and affairs".
-Dr. Robert Anthony
Peace be with you
