Reasons and excuses you are still smoking cigarettes

Why do you think you are still smoking cigarettes after all these years? Could it be the reasons and excuses?

Stress
To relax
No will power
Pleasure of Smoking
Concerned about weight gain

The thing that normally stops most people from making a decision to stop smoking is that they make excuses and have reasons. So we are going to handle them now and set them aside for good, OK?

Stress

The biggest excuse most people use is probably that they smoke because of stress. It is usually the stress of their job, family, kids, and life. Stress used to be my friend Dan’s excuse.

Dan used to smoke about eight years ago. He had a job that was really stressful and he used to smoke cigarettes because he said he was stressed. And that is when I simply pointed out to him that maybe it wasn’t stress.  He was a bit surprised by my comment so I asked him, “do you smoke on the weekends?” Dan said, “yes, I still smoke on the weekend.” I then asked Dan, “do you still smoke when on vacation.” Dan said, “yes, I still smoke on vacation.” Then I said to Dan, “if you still smoke on the weekends, and when you’re on vacation, how can you say that you smoke because of stress? Isn’t the stress of the job gone when you’re on vacation and on the weekends?”

Dan smoked the same amount day in and day out. It is not as if on a really stressful day he had 80 cigarettes and the following non-stressful day he had five cigarettes. On the weekends, during stress, not stressed he smoked the same amount of cigarettes. So where is the stress? It is a great excuse but that is all it is – an excuse.

To Relax

A lot of smokers tell me that smoking relaxes them.

Now if you know anything about nicotine, you will know, it’s impossible to relax when you smoke, because nicotine is actually a stimulant.

When you inhale nicotine goes into your bloodstream and goes everywhere including your heart. Your heart sees nicotine as a poison and it increases your heart rate by about 12 beats per minute trying to get rid of the poison. This is why even when you haven’t smoked a cigarette in a while you may notice heart palpitations or feel lightheaded or dizzy, because the nicotine is a stimulant causing your heart and your body to react and try to get rid of it. Your stomach produces extra stomach acid every time you smoke cigarettes, about ½ a cup of extra acid for every 2 packs of cigarettes.

In a cigarette you have a powerful stimulant with nicotine plus other carcinogens that are stimulants. And if you add additional stimulants like caffeine or tea or coffee, you have at least three extremely powerful stimulants causing the body to be hyper excited. Is that person relaxed? Not even close. In fact, your body is working overtime trying to get rid of all the poisons and toxins, you just put into it. So it is absolutely impossible to smoke and physiologically relax. Any feeling of relaxation is just an illusion.

Will Power

Actually if you didn’t have any willpower, you wouldn’t ever get out of bed, you wouldn’t go to work, you wouldn’t make payments on a house, if you didn’t have any willpower you wouldn’t do anything. Willpower is what allows you to do the dozens of things that you do every day of your life, maybe even if you don’t want to do them. And you do that because you have to, that’s what willpower is! So actually, you do have lots of willpower. The only question is are you going to start using it to quit cigarettes? Because I know, under the right set of circumstances you could quit just by using willpower alone. No gum, patches, acupuncture, hypnosis, or anything.

Pleasure

How many of the cigarettes you smoke, do you actually enjoy?

Most say 4 or 5.

Well, it takes about 4 minutes to smoke a cigarette, so that’s 4 x 4, or 16 minutes of enjoyment.

Now we know it is decreasing your health, but what is your health when you get 16 minutes of pleasure or enjoyment from smoking a cigarette. And you’re suffering with coughing and shortness of breath, hacking up mucus each morning and not being able to do all the things you want to do. Then there is the smell and what about personal hygiene. Yes, we get those 16 minutes of enjoyment! And you’re spending thousands of dollars each year however you have the money so you can afford it – or maybe not. And studies show that it can take an average of 14 years off your life but then, what is 16 minutes of pure enjoyment? I mean, it’s worth it isn’t it?

Of course, I am Joking!  Know though that you can book an appointment for hypnosis and become a non smoker in only one session knowing you have a Lifetime Guarantee.

Customer Testimonials

Hi Maureen. Just a quick note to say thank you. I have not had even a puff of cigarette since our session on 10 May 14. Any desire or thought flits straight out again. This is certainly a much less painful way to stop smoking. I recommend you to anyone who is interested, even had someone ask about weight loss. Hope all is well for you.  Regards
