Smoking – The Easiest Bad Habit to Kick
If you’re one of those people who’s failed multiple times to get free of a nicotine habit, you might find the headline of this article a bit hard to swallow. But once you understand exactly why you use nicotine in the first place, then the solution to the problem becomes much plainer and easier to approach in the second place.
Understanding changes how we approach problems. So do opinions. The difference is that opinions often contain inaccuracies and even lies, while understanding can only hold truth.
It is not my objective to convince you that I’m right about what you’re reading in this article. All I ask is that you please keep an open mind, because what I am going to tell you about smoking and nicotine applies to every single person who’s addicted to the stuff. And is absolutely necessary to give it up in a wholesome, permanent way.
If you smoke, then I am speaking to you.
Let me reiterate: A smoking habit, nicotine dependency, is one of the simplest addictions in the world to break.
When smokers try to stop and fail, it isn’t because they’re lacking willpower. The reason nicotine addicts keep smoking even though they don’t want to is because they’ve got too much willpower. They go into quitting willfully and will defeats the desire to stop before it even starts.
They might turn to the usual methods. There are formalized programs and pharmacotherapies available, each purporting to help addicts stop. There’s certainly no shortage of these pay-for assistance methods. Or they might try going commando, accessing the mental chatter generated inside their head to self-coach their way into giving it up. Positive thinking. Marshaling willpower.
All of these are ambitious, way too much effort and ultimately will fail.
Even devices which at first are somewhat helpful, ultimately only set up the addict for further problems since none of these eliminate the need for nicotine—and only succeed in supplanting one obsessive behavior for others.
If you’ve ever found yourself trading cigarettes for Hagen Das or pizza pie then you know what I mean.
These prolong the willful condition, the very same attitude that’s established the need to smoke in the first place. And then it becomes harder to stop than ever. Self-help books, hypnotists, transdermal patches, taper-vaping, none of these ever seem to work, and even if it does at all, it doesn’t last.
The idea that nicotine is difficult to give up because it is physically and psychologically addictive is not only old school, it’s also mistaken. There is a physical tolerance element, of course, and this must be dealt with. But, nicotine is not psychologically addictive in the least.
In fact, there is no psychology to a smoking habit at all. I know this can be hard to believe, because chances are this idea has been drilled into your head so hard and for so long by so many so-called professionals. But they are wrong.
With few exceptions, when someone wants to give up smoking, stopping is the first thing they do. Once successfully detoxified (which only takes a few days) they then try to stay stopped, usually through some systemized program combining psychology, behavior modification and even forms of hypnosis. This doesn’t work. It exercises willfulness ultimately bringing the smoker back to the drug or to another equally obsessive habit, like overeating or a pornography fixation.
That is because like other commonly abused drugs, nicotine acts like an anesthetic, biochemically inciting processes in the brain which dull the pain of conscience stemming from unrecognized resentment and suppressed anger.
This powerful stimulant, C10H14N2, allows the spiritually broken smoker to maintain an appearance of calmness and serenity while being slowly destroyed packed into hidden negative emotional energy.
The nicotine addict uses the drug to numb the pain of guilty conscience that accompanies unrecognized resentment. He doesn’t know this is happening. He doesn’t realize he’s doing it. But he’s compulsively moved to do it nevertheless. His need for relief raises a compulsion to seek the chemical relief that nicotine supplies.
In stimulating the dopamine receptors of the brain, nicotine allows the substance abuser to remain angry, without detection. His negative emotional state remains a secret, otherwise objectionable attitude he keeps even from himself. In his unconscious mind he's always the loving, easy-going, even forgiving person.
Meanwhile a boiling pot of bitterness feeds a ravenous Ego entity within. It grows and he becomes selfish, self-centered and fearful.
This is an emotional failing, stemming out of a metaphysical aberration in the human psyche produced by anger. More popularly, it may be said that the problem is spiritual in nature. Emotions and spirituality are inexorably combined.
However, once the emotional aspect is conquered, then stopping is not only possible, but becomes quite easy. This is why simple physical withdrawal is the last step, not the first in successful smoking cessation.
The inordinate need for guilt-canceling pleasure must be addressed and eliminated. Unless a nicotine abuser finds this real solution to his hidden sensitivity to resentment, he’s in grave danger of vascular catastrophe—anger-induced. And that's where the real danger lies with nicotine, the ultimate effects of altering mood through artificial means in the psyche.
Nicotine addiction is a symptom of an emotional malady, going to spiritual dysfunction. When a person ceases smoking, if those emotions remain they eventually transfer into physical illnesses—sometimes even the very diseases a smoker may be trying to avoid by trying not to smoke.
Remove the cause of the need first, then the need goes away on its own. Without the cause removed, the individual is still subject to immune system deterioration and the shortening in quality and duration of life.
It would not be uncommon for an ex-smoker, having already given up the drug for decades to later succumb to lung cancer. This is not due to prior smoking. It is caused by a continuance of the emotionally induced spiritual disease, from which the quitter has never been cured. In other words, he still resents. He’s still angry and playing God.
What good is it to stop smoking but then die decades before your time of diseases arising from immune system failure? This is what happens when anger remains, even where one gives up smoking without removing the underlying cause.
The answer to a smoking addiction is not a medical treatment. That’s because although smoking creates medical problems, its inception is not a medical issue.
The only one way to be safely rid of a nicotine addiction is to address the emotional cause first, eliminating the need. Smokers need nicotine. Remove the need, and removing the cigarette is simple and easy — spontaneous, actually.
To succeed at it the first thing to do is to stop trying to stop. The very last thing is to quit. Whether it’s by cold turkey or nicotine replacement therapy followed with stopping, it becomes easy once we have come to terms with willfulness. This is the understanding that is key to success in stopping.
The smoker regains his lost ability to regulate behavior as the urge to do the things he doesn’t want to do disappears. That’s how it works.
You could attend 100 seminars or stop-smoking classes, pay for counseling and read a dozen self-help books on how to stop smoking. Psychological tricks can actually help you quit smoking, but unless you address and resolve the cause, you will die from emotionally-caused disease like cancer. There is no psychology, no behavior modification tricks, and no clinical or psychological gimmicks that work for real.
Nicotine tolerance and addiction stem from a metaphysically generated obsession, and smokers who cannot stop are much more than physically dependent, they are first spiritually broken—a condition caused by improperly coping with anger.
When they straighten out spiritually, vis-à-vis getting free from anger, they lose their obsessiveness and can quit smoking with ease. I mean easy!
So many smokers would never believe this to be the case. They believe themselves to be relatively easy-going, carefree folks, not realizing that something deep down is malfunctioning. Ironically it has been the nicotine that has helped them paint this false picture of themselves.
When you give up anger, you will be able to stop smoking, to successfully withdraw from the drug and never go back. There’s no secret formula, no psychology, no behavior modification or hypnotic suggestion that works as well.
I am happy to give the method away for free right here on this website.
My method, better than anything else available anywhere, allows for the removal of the cause of the need to smoke, vape, chew tobacco, to dose with any nicotine at all.
Once the need has been removed any addict can regain the ability to regulate behavior. The compulsion to do the things you don’t want to do vanished and that includes compulsory nicotine use.
There will be articles and links, a free E-book, videos and podcast addressing the addiction, serving as a resource to help anyone stop smoking and to share with others who also want to stop right away.
This has never been presented publicly before. It changes forever the way addicts should approach smoking cessation. If you or someone you know wants to quit smoking, there will be help right here. I anticipate having everything completed this summer. Get on my Monday night mail list and be sure to receive the announcement.
