Your Personal Plan To Quit Smoking In Just 30 Days

Quit smoking in 30 days

The hardest days

The first 30 days as an ex-smoker are the hardest. You have a lot of hardship to cope with. If you make it through the first 30 days, it will get easier from that point on. Let’s take a look at a “plan of attack” to help you quit smoking in just 30 days. There are a few elements:

  1. a well devised plan (very necessary)
  2. few aids (not necessary)
  3. a lot of motivation (very necessary)

The plan

You need to plan exactly what you schedule will be and what activities you plan on having during these next 30 days. This is critically important because you want to insure that there are as little surprises and stressful events as possible.

Every time you go through stressful event you are at risk to start smoking again. Also, do not plan any diet or other radical life style changes during this month. You will have enough to deal with as it is, wouldn’t you?

You should also plan special time to exercise, do breathing exercises and sleep properly ( you can’t smoke while you sleep). The next thing to do in your plan is to get all the help you can get during this month.

To do that you can

  1. Ask your friend and family to help you quit smoking. Ask them to watch over you and make sure you are not tempted to smoke.
  2. Hang reminders at your computer, bathroom, kitchen etc. telling you that you are now an ex-smoker.
  3. Through away all Tobacco products. This seems obvious, but many smokers who try to quit still keep a cigarette stash somewhere in case they’ll need it…don’t be one of them.
  4. Try not to drink any alcohol during this month. That’s because we don’t want your will power and your judgement to weaken, which tends to be the case when you drink.

Some other things that can help

Stop smoking aids

There are a few stop smoking aids that were proven effective. The medicine called Zyban is an effective craving reducer (need prescription). There are also many herbal replacements to Zyban that do not require prescription.

Other methods are the shots and the laser treatment. All good methods, but quit pricey. Using these aids might help, but it can’t replace your will power.

You will power and motivation

An absolute must have. You won’t make it without a true desire to quit smoking. You really must find that desire within you. Your life will be so much better after you quit smoking, and you must find that desire for life and health.

 

That’s it. Your complete battle-plan for your first 30 days as an ex-smoker. So now that you have it, it’s totally up to you. Good luck!

Hypnosis Power And Inevitable Success (Part 1 of 3)

The Power of Hypnosis

Hypnosis works

There are hundreds of studies shows how the power of hypnosis can use to create amazing changes in your life. From alleviating pain to creating new behaviors. It has worked for millions of people in the past. It continues to work for millions today and it will probably work for you also!

Are you hypnotizable? Is there a possibility that YOU could enter into the deepest states of hypnotic trance? If you are an average person you will most likely think that you can’t be hypnotized.

This is normal. The majority of people feel that if it were possible for them to be hypnotized. In some way, it indicates that they lack any real will-power are naive or of below average intelligence. This could not be further from the truth.

The best hypnotic subjects are actually very intelligent

They have a great deal of concentration and have a highly developed ability to focus. You should also be aware that the hypnotic state is different for each person who enters it. It is a state that can vary from individual to individual.

Some people can enter extremely deep states of trance. Trance where their awareness completely changes. Even their memory of the event is hidden when they awaken. While others find themselves in a state that is equal to complete relaxation.

Most of us fall somewhere in the middle. Wherever you find yourself on the hypnotic trance scale one thing is for certain. Everyone is subject to hypnosis to some degree.

In fact you go into trance states constantly throughout the day

Have you ever been “going through the motions?” Just performing a task without any conscious effort and been thinking of something completely different?

If you travel on the bus or train do you find yourself day-dreaming? Or remembering past events and become engross in your mental image? So engross that you lost track of time or your surroundings?

Alternative Ways To Help Quit Smoking

Methods vary

The methods used to help a person quit smoking are as varied as smokers themselves. Some people find that they can quit smoking just by will power alone, going cold turkey and butting out forever. Others say they may need help of others in the form of a support group or other network.

Some turn to methods such as the patch or some types of chewing gum. As cultures begin to merge, however, there are more and more medical practices. Other are still unknown to Western science that may have many benefits to those who wish to stop smoking.

Some alternative methods

Acupuncture

Acupuncture originated in China. It is the practice of inserting long, thin needles into various acupuncture points on the body. They believe it can restore mental health and well being. As with many Far East ideas, acupuncture is concerned with restoring balance as a whole, rather than applying the health theories of the West to any one assigned area.

The piercing points are areas which help to shock the body back into a healthy balance. Acupuncture is usually a debate topic in medical circles. Studies have never conclusively proven that it is an effective treatment for anything at all. However, many patients who have undergone this treatment sweat by its results. Thus it may indeed be an effective tool when it comes to the battle to quit smoking.

Addiction, after all, is in part a mental affliction. If a patient believes that a treatment is working then it is possible that it is doing so. In addition, acupuncture has been demonstrated to assist in the release of endorphins. However, the full effects of which on the body as a whole are still unknown to some degree.

Hypnosis

Another method that many smokers try to use when attempting to quit is hypnosis. It is vital that hypnosis be understood in its rightful context, rather than the societal myth. Hypnosis works along the same lines as subliminal messaging; by applying the power of suggestion to a subject who is concentrating on another matter.

It is possible to affect the thinking processes of the brain. In this way, hypnosis can use to curb the cravings that come with nicotine addiction and often lead the smoker to relapse.

There are also several changes to lifestyle to increase the amounts of dopamine found within the body. Dopamine is the active ingredient in Zyban. Levels of dopamine can be increased through a higher protein intake and stress reduction. Some take vitamins and herbs such as Indian ginseng and magnesium.

Despite methods and their levels of success, however, it is the will power. Will power is the key ingredient when it comes to smoking cessation. No matter which other method you choose to assist you in ending the cravings and lessening the physical symptoms of withdrawal.

Sooner or later it is going to come down to your ability to say no to a cigarette. That will make sure the end of the habit’s hold on your life.
