…a Happy Non-Smoker!
Not wanting to be a non-smoker, smokers often recite its many benefits. They said it felt good with alcohol, after a meal or with coffee. That they felt better when they smoked if they were stressed, couldn’t concentrate, or were bored or lonely. I can easily understand their reasons and they are all valid and good. I am not hear to criticize or judge, and who can dispute how they felt.
But once they become a non-smoker they realized just how untrue those reasons were. What really was happening is that they felt better because they were feeding their nicotine addiction!
And for many people to become a non-smoker was seen as very difficult. They didn’t want to have to deal with all the cravings, withdraw symptoms, the habit, nicotine addiction, the stress and anxiety of quitting, the possible weight gain. Plus all the temptations and associations of smoking, alongside the sheer willpower needed to stop smoking!

Some Smoking Myths!
In a ‘Financial Times’ (09/08/08) article by renowned BBC Journalist Michael Buerk who wrote the following about my work at Chiva Som:
‘I went to two “holistic” sessions, mainly to snigger. I am the kind of narrow- minded rationalist who finds this New Age stuff screamingly funny. A rather personable chap (Paul Emery QEPR) banged on about how he could remove the blocked energy flows in our meridians, mainly, it seemed, by rapping on our eyebrows like a woodpecker. It sounded utter nonsense. The snag was it (tapping) seemed to work. An Australian chain-smoker instantly pronounced herself cured. There is a perfectly reasonable explanation, I know, but there again …’
You’ll gain weight. You’ll only gain weight if you substitute smoking with eating more, because you held onto the idea that you are missing something.
In-fact be happy that you are missing nothing – but gaining so much. Think about what you are gaining and be joyful and proud at the thought of finally becoming a non-smoker!
Another reason some people substitute smoking with eating more is because they haven’t dealt with any underlying stress, anxiety, anger etc that contributed to their smoking.
With my program you won’t need a substitute because I will eliminate any underlying emotional causes!
Meals, coffee, alcohol, sex, socializing etc are more enjoyable with a cigarette. It’s the association you make between ‘topping’ up your nicotine fix, at the same time as you are ‘satisfying’ other needs, that confuses you into thinking that the cigarette is a ‘pleasure’.
The only thing that makes a cigarette taste good is that, without it, you experience the discomfort of the craving for your fix! That need to feed your never-ending addiction.
I need willpower to stop smoking because it helps me deal with stress, concentrate better, relax and overcome boredom. If it were really true that smoking helped all that, then your life would be total bliss! You should be totally stress free and relaxed, never bored and able to concentrate all the time.
When in-fact the truth is – smoking impedes concentration (your mind is frequently distracted by wanting to satisfy the craving need), it impedes relaxation (being constantly aware of getting that next nicotine fix), it increases boredom (because the cause of your boredom doesn’t go away but seems to increase when you become aware of that craving itch and need to light up,)
It increases stress (the added hourly stress of needing and getting a cigarette to keep the cravings at bay, the stress of being prevented from smoking in some way, the guilt, the shame of smoking, the potential harm is does to you and your loved ones.)
So there are no actual real reasons to smoke! Therefore, once you see that for what it really is the desire for smoking goes.
During a Live TV show I was able to help this man stop smoking using just one of my methods – TFT
On Becoming a Non-Smoker:
- If you had the choice – would you choose to be a smoker or non-smoker? Why?
- Are you glad that you smoked?
- If you had, or have, children or grandchildren would you encourage them to smoke? If not why not?
- Are you addicted to nicotine? For example have you gone to extreme lengths to get your fix, perhaps lied about it to yourself and others?
- Using willpower to quit smoking and become a non-smoker is a bad idea. It keeps you hooked and creates stress and anxiety, which increases the craving because you felt you were missing out on something, felt deprived, couldn’t cope without your fix and therefore became more anxious! (Of course, you don’t need willpower with my unique program!)
- Do you enjoy the ritual of smoking? Well, what’s the ritual for – it’s just what you need to do to get the drug into your system! Think about it. Would you still perform the same actions if you didn’t need the nicotine?!
- You have been conned into thinking that a cigarette is a friend, that it provides you with some sort of ‘pleasure’ or crutch. The only so called pleasure in smoking is in trying to relieve the empty, insecure feeling of nicotine withdraw!
- The more you try to resist the temptation to smoke, the more obsessed you become by the craving because that’s all you focused on!
- Smoking was an impulse, a desire you acted upon. Yet there are probably other things you felt impulsed to do, things you’d like to do– like telling you boss to go to hell, or screaming at someone in a queue to hurry up – but you don’t! You put the thought out your mind and the uncomfortable feeling quickly fades! So, remember you do already have some self-control over your thoughts, your behaviour
- Therefore you can take the same control over cigarettes. It’s a fact that if you resist the desire to smoke by immediately breaking the pattern and do something else, anything else, it starts to quickly weaken the old neural-pathways in the brain. The desire and nicotine withdraw quickly goes. In-fact nicotine is out of your body in days!
- You are already a non-smoker unless you light up another one!
- Before a consultation with me tell all your family and friends, and post on all your social media that as from today you are happy to be a non-smoker forever!
- Throw out any cigarettes, lighters, ashtrays etc at home and work
- Drink plenty of juice. It helps flush nicotine and poisons out your system especially during the first three days of being a non-smoker.
- Re-arrange as practical your home and work environment to help create a fresh start
- You spent many hours smoking per week! Just consider what will you do with all your extra time?
- What will you do instead as a non-smoker when wanting to take a break? I have some practical, easy and helpful suggestions btw 😉
