The THRILL of it!

March 1, 2015

It is positively THRILLING to be quit 9 years.  And kind of mind blowing.
What can I tell you about my journey that hasn’t already been said here?  
Not much.  But -  for one thing, there are no more unpleasant surprises.  No more surprise cravings that take me off guard.  Oh yes, I’ll still get a hankering for one at odd moments, but those hankerings don’t surprise me any more.  I recognize them now as part of the journey.  No big...

Smokers Use Nicotine in Multiple Forms

February 28, 2015

The first peek at a major study of how Americans smoke suggests many use combinations of products, and often e-cigarettes are part of the mix.

It's a preliminary finding, but it highlights some key questions as health officials assess electronic cigarettes.

"Are e-cigarettes a step toward a cigarette smoker getting off of cigarettes? Or are e-cigarettes a crutch so they can get nicotine in places and times when they wouldn't normally be allowed to smoke cigarettes?"... Read full post

will you?

February 27, 2015

You can't undo the lies you've accepted to remain a smoker until you can look objectively and visualize the truth.

BELIEVE!

February 27, 2015

Two recent studies have pointed out that what you believe about smoking and about quitting are in fact what you experience! When given identical sickerettes half a group were told they had nicotine and half were told that they were nnicotine free. The groups acted entirely different on an fMRI! [fMRI can see brain activity.] 

Another study showed that if you believe that you will quit smoking - then your chances are that you will regardless of the method(s) used. If you believe that... Read full post
