Sometimes changing one’s mind at its core can be experienced in a blazing epiphany in a flash of a moment.
But not often. The type of change to lose the urge to smoke generally consists of acts not monumental, but incremental.
Bit by bit, piece by piece, those reasons can be removed from the subconscious.
Once that’s done, there is no reason left to smoke, therefore no urge.
The difference between just stopping smoking and removing the reasons for smoking is the difference between being a smoker living in denial and truly being a non-smoker.
Open your mind to see smoking habits differently, and freedom is a possibility.
The first has urges that are constantly, perpetually, subconsciously denied.
The second never has an urge because they never have a reason creating one.
No matter how much a person says they like to smoke, I’ve never found one who didn’t like not smoking even more.
We cannot change the past, but we can change the way we remember it, and how those memories affect our lives today.
