Routines, Habits & Rituals
Smoking cigarettes is not a habit, it’s a ‘collection’ of mini-habits each one has a ‘trigger’.
These mini-habits are triggered by certain events/actions in your daily routine, each with its own battle to face…
The ’psychological’ effect creates the ‘biggest’ problem. It is not a suffering from any pain, BUT the FEAR of stopping, the FEAR to LIVE WITHOUT cigarettes.
The FEAR and DOUBT of stopping are the psychological effects of situations like telephone conversations, before/after a meal, the presence of other smokers, etc.
Life is made up of patterns. Disrupt ‘those’ patterns that triggers. Break up the smoking pattern, create a new non-smoking one in its place…
Step out of your comfort zone and CHANGE, CONTROL and CONFUSE
Change - your patterns, routines, associations
Control - replacing your habits with new healthy ones
Confuse - the ENEMY.....and Knock ‘em DEAD, ONE by ONE!!
|Watch out for the ‘mind monster’ who resides in your mind and plays with your thoughts. Some of the main contributors are the mini-habits and rituals that feed your smoking addiction.
