Imagery Catalyzes Readiness To Quit Smoking in Earnest

01 Dec

We found this lovely note on our website from a very addicted ex-smoker. As an ex-smoker myself, who found it incredibly difficult to quit but finally did, I was especially gratified to read it.  And it speaks well to the point of readiness – most of the time, you need to be ready psychologically and emotionally ready (or scared to death) in order to succeed at this.

 

 

“I truly believe the smoking imagery (Stop Smoking) made the difference for me.  I have finally quit after years of addiction. I stopped and started, but this tape seemed to build my resolve in a gentle, respectful and non judgmental way, week after week, until finally I was less attracted to smoking and more attracted to health. How wonderful to be free at last from smoking!”
