Mindfulness holds the key to transitioning your feelings of smoking from a compulsion to dislike. But what does it mean to be mindful? When you are mindful of yourself, you are fully aware of what you are thinking, feeling and doing.
Awareness and mindfulness have many techniques. One of them is R.A.I.N. In this blog, we will explain how this technique along with Smotect Natural Tablets could facilitate your cigarette-quitting program better.
What is R.A.I.N.?
R.A.I.N. is an acronym for Recognition, Acceptance, Investigation and Non-identification. It centers on being aware of your immediate surroundings and being nonjudgmental about the thoughts and feelings accompanying them. It deconditions you from your usual patterns of thinking, responding and behaving, for instance feeling stressed and lighting a cigarette.
This technique is the primary exercise for quitting smoking. Each time you let go of the craving, you must practice R.A.I.N. This practice will break the habit loop and take you close to quitting cigarettes. Let’s understand how.
R for ‘recognize’
Identify the presence of strong emotion in your mind. Tune in to the emotion gently in an open and nonjudgmental fashion. Get a sense of what is happening in your mind and in your body. Give tangible descriptions of the sensations. For instance, say out aloud — I’m feeling stressed, or I’m feeling tired. When you truly recognize how you feel, you open up your inner space to be in the present moment. You are no longer distracted when smoking.
A for ‘accept’
Accepting or acknowledging your present moment and emotions doesn’t mean you must suppress them. Stay in the present moment and drop your mental resistance. It is critical to respond and not react. When you react, you plainly deepen your emotion. But when you respond, you choose the next step consciously. You are comfortable with what you are undergoing.
I for ‘investigate’
While investigating, ask these questions: How did this start? Have I felt it before? What do I need to do now? Such questions can help you analyze your emotions and thoughts objectively. The core reason to investigate is to help yourself resolve any ambiguity in your mind related to your emotion and thoughts.
N for ‘non-identify’
In this last step of the technique, your sense of being is not restricted to your emotions. This realization aims to make you peaceful and calm and reaffirm that you are not defined by your cigarette smoking. In other words, just because you have been smoking for a given amount of time, doesn’t mean you will continue to smoke for the rest of your life. This last step makes you realize that smoking is merely a habit that can be unlearned whenever you want to.
Do this technique once or twice every day when you are not smoking. Each time you practice RAIN, your mental muscles strengthen. You are in a better capacity to deal with your cigarette cravings. Additionally, to stop smoking, you can opt for Smotect Natural Tablets.
