Day 9 – QUIT30 Quit Smoking Challenge


DAY 9 – QUIT30 Program
Smoke-Free for: 1 WEEK!

Hello there! This should be your 7th day without a cigarette. Get the hell out of here! That’s amazing.

You made it through the 3 days of peak cravings, but these past 4 days I’m sure have had plenty of intense ones as well. But you have a week without smoking! Hell yeah!

But you’re not out of the woods, the physical cravings are not the only opponent you’re facing in this challenge. You’ve also got to go against your own brain and the addict voice inside. And that voice is the most conniving, evil voice you may ever come across.

The Inner Addict Voice

voices

 

Yeah, just tell it to shut the f*(& up.


Tips for Day 4

Dealing with the Manipulative Cigarette Addict In Your Head

The addictive voice in your head will tell you that just giving up and smoking would be better than going through all this. It will tell you that these cravings and mood swings will never stop. It will tell you that just one puff will help fix everything. It will tell you that you still have some years left to smoke before you start to develop health issues.

It’s a crazy son of a bitch.

Today’s challenge is to shut that voice down by reinforcing all the great changes that have happened in your life in the past week. Allow yourself to live in the beautiful reality of what happened instead of the negative make believe world that the addict wants you to live in!

  1. i do not cough or stay up all night smoking. i can be around it and not do it, that makes me feel stronger, and like i have something to be proud of. I was offered a cigarette, but i said no and stay away from it. I feel less stress and worry, kinda clearer thoughts than before. overall i feel better as an ex-smoker.

  2. I am becoming way more productive. After smoking my cigar it would make me feel so lethargic, but now I am becoming more energized. I am actually much more relaxed, and I have had a stressful week. I would before seek my cigar to help me cope now I use my mind. It has made a tremendous difference and allowed me to be so much more creative. This sounds weird, but I actually taste my mouth.lol. Now I don’t have to hide from my family to smoke.

    • WOW! That’s great to hear from you, Aaron… You are now leading to the right track of life. Stay a healthy and productive life! Good job…

  3. I dont have to hide when I smoke, constsntly washing my hands when I getting home to my family. I have a sense of pride that I can not do sometning that I know is bad for me. I felt so defeated in the past after smoking, now I feel better. Its been a battle in my head but I have not given in. I made it through a stressful workday yesterday without one. That was a big step.

  4. My period of highest intensity smoking is when I go garage saleing or arrive a few hours early to wait for an estate sale. I went today and the cravings were horrible but I managed. It was literally painful but I didn’t give in. If I made it through this, I can make it through anything!! ( I hope )

    • Let’s always hope for the best, Harriet! And I personally congratulate you for a job well done. You can conquer anything… It’s all in the mind and determination. Stay strong!

  7. Hi Every Good Non Smoker, Its been great as a non smoker for this 7 days in my life. I am proud
    of my achievements. Although I feel great about this, my family are not so excited as myself.. Yes
    of course it doesnt effect them that much, but siill some fake encouragement is in order.

    Well I feel good, In many ways I still reach out for my cigarettes, but I realise it is the past tense. Yes I
    used to enjoy my cigarettes, offcourse it is still disasterous.

  16. I smell so much better!
    Went to the gym today and wasn’t self conscious worrying that I smelled like smoke.
    Other peoples smoking doesn’t make me want one, it is starting to smell bad to me.
    Food tastes are more intense without being dulled by cigarettes.
    My sense of smell is definitely better.
