It’s very simple and very important: your attitude/thinking has to be positive! You can’t be thinking you’re going to miss smoking and expect it to be easy. You get what you expect. Positive thinking as your predominant mental attitude brings inner peace, success, health, happiness, and satisfaction…anything you desire, really!
Positive thinking is about having a mental attitude that expects favorable results. It means anticipating a favorable outcome. When you quit smoking, expect to feel happy and relieved, energized and proud. This is really powerful stuff! Be in a state of inner certainty. Evoke a feeling of success and keep it alive. The mind tends to find what it expects. Countless books have been written on this subject. When your attitude is positive and you feel good, your whole being broadcasts happiness and success. A negative mind, on the other hand, paves the way to failure and disappointment.
You really have nothing to lose. At the very least, positive thinking will help you cope better with any type of situation. You’ll certainly have a more enjoyable time thinking positively than negatively. Just try it!
If you still have doubts, instead of taking things too seriously, treat them as a game. This will reduce the tension. Give it a go and enjoy it!
When you notice a negative thought entering your mind, replace it with a constructive one. Don’t beat yourself up about it and don’t worry about it – just fix it and move on!
For example, if you catch yourself thinking, “I will miss smoking”, follow your thought up with, “Miss smoking? Who am I kidding? I can’t wait to be over this! I’m getting my life back! I’m just happy it’s almost over – only (x) days to go!” Sometimes it’s not so easy to associate positive feelings with a current situation, but you can fix that! What you can do is remember a situation where your mental state matched the state you want Dampfshop.
If you want to be happy, recall a situation from your past where you were really happy. Remember it as well as you can. Relive it. See it, hear it, and feel it, and the feeling of happiness will be recreated!
