Are you one of those who has been requested to quit smoking or is contemplating the same? You would be aware that quitting smoking would enhance the quality of your life. In the same breath, you would also know that it is difficult to kick smoking off. Well, difficult, but not impossible.
It is difficult to quit smoking because it makes you believe that smoking is second nature to you. On the contrary, it is simply a habit, like scores of other habits. For instance, washing your hands with soap for 20 seconds before eating a meal is a habit. You can choose to unlearn it if you wish to (We hope you don’t).
So, what makes smoking so difficult to quit? Your decision to not become aware of your smoking. Puzzled? We’ll explain.
Be Aware Of Your Smoking Habit
We believe that quitting smoking is not a test of your willpower. To quit smoking, all you need to do is smoke mindfully. This means being aware and conscious of why you experience the urge to smoke and what will happen if you refuse to feed this urge.
Experiencing a cigarette craving is similar to a kid’s tantrum. You could either give in to the demand or refuse it. The more you give in to the child’s demands, the more obstinate and spoiled it turns out to be. But if you choose to say no then the child will learn to accept the rejection.
By asking you to smoke mindfully, we are fundamentally asking you to:
- Recognize your emotion at the present moment
- Accept the emotion rather than push it away
- Investigate the cause of the emotion in an open-ended and friendly manner
- Non-identify yourself from the act of smoking
As you practice this approach with every cigarette craving, you will be able to rewire your brain and break your cigarette-smoking habit loop.
What Is A Cigarette Smoking Habit Loop?
A habit loop is a neurological loop that forms any habit. It consists of 4 elements:
When you smoke mindfully, you gradually learn to make the cues invisible. Cues are those associations or patterns that compel you to smoke. For example, smoking when conversing with friends, smoking after meals, smoking when stressed, and so on.
After you start ignoring your cues, you learn to reframe your mindset. It is at this juncture that you also begin to experience the bitterness of nicotine in your mouth. From hereon, begins the friction between you and the habit.
How To Compensate The Nicotine Buzz?
Of course, we know that cigarette smoking makes you feel good. It is one of the key reasons why you started smoking. Well, you can compensate for this buzz with Smotect Natural Tablets.
What are Smotect Natural Tablets?
They are patented, unique scientific formulations of 12 therapeutic herbs. They:
- Lower your dependence on nicotine
- Reduce cravings
- Manage withdrawal symptoms
- Restore lung health/functions
- Protect vital organs (lungs, heart, brain and skin) from the impact of years of smoking
They are 100% safe and natural, clinically proven and nicotine-free. Well, if they don’t contain nicotine (the substance that drives the cigarette buzz in you) then how come these tablets are effective? That’s because of their dopaminergic action.
Smotect Natural Tablets lead the body to produce its own dopamine to make up for the loss due to nicotine dependence. Consequently, nicotine dependence reduces. This naturally released dopamine also helps to sustain the elevated mood, increased energy levels and stamina.
