Quitting smoking can be quick and easy
There is no reason why quitting smoking can’t be quick and easy.
You might have been told that quitting smoking is a difficult and painful journey. You might have even tried and failed many times yourself. Maybe you’ve armed yourself with nicotine patches and gum or have substituted cigarettes for vaping.
Nicotine patches and gum are all based on the idea that you are a slave to your cravings and need a certain amount of nicotine in your system to beat withdrawal symptoms. Withdrawal symptoms sound scary, but they usually only last 2 or 3 days and they tend to be quite mild.
Common withdrawal symptoms are irritability, difficulty in concentrating, anxiety, restlessness, increased hunger, depression, and a pronounced craving for tobacco.
Nicotine substitutes can make you feel more comfortable during your first week of being smoke-free, but they don’t address the habit.
The fastest way to quit smoking for good is to not only deal with the physical aspect of quitting, but to also tackle the mental and habitual aspect.

I know the struggle
I was 15 years old when I started smoking; only a few a day at first and worked my way up to 25 a day by the time I reached 18. If there was a slight chance I’d run out of cigarettes by the end of the day, I would get anxious and go out to get new ones before the shops closed.
I tried to quit at least 4 times. Since quitting didn’t work, I tried to cut back to 3 cigarettes a day. That lasted 2 weeks… I knew something needed to change, but simply didn’t know what to do or how to do it.
I decided to change the way I’d see myself when smoking. Imagining how my life would be as a non-smoker.
What I didn’t know then, was that my constant thoughts about wanting to quit, my increasing feeling of discomfort with every cigarette were, in fact, a very basic and crude form of self-hypnosis. You can imagine my surprise when one day I simply decided that was it, my smoking days were over. No cravings, no regrets. It was as if I’d never smoked a day in my life. That was over 10 years ago, and I haven’t smoked since.
That moment still stands out in my mind. Even after all those years, I can still remember it so vividly. Lighting up my first cigarette of the day, then barely halfway through smoking it, I was done. Something in the back of my mind simply went “nope”. I never even finished that cigarette.
