Quitting Smoking

  • Pay Attention To The Excuses You Are Making Not To Quit Smoking

    So how long have you been smoking? Has it been ten years? Or five? Or maybe even 30.  Do you actually even enjoy it anymore?  There may have been a time when you did, but now it is just something that you are, isn’t it?

    Well it doesn’t have to be.  All the negatives about smoking well outweigh the enjoyment you are getting from it.  You have probably tried to quit multiple times over the years, but it keeps dragging you back into its death grip.  You know it’s not healthy, and you know that it sucks.  Yet every time you pull one out of the pack, you inevitably light it up.

    Most every smoker knows that they want to quit but we all at one time give ourselves excuses to why we don’t want to.  Our mind is very good at taking the shortest route possible.  It loves little hacks and tricks that make our lives easier so it doesn’t have to think as much.

     Because our mind does that, it will create myths so that we do not have to go through withdrawal symptoms after we quit smoking.  It tells us that a cigarette actually calms our nerves.  Which is blatantly false as nicotine is a stimulant.  The calming portion comes in when your mind doesn’t have to work.

    Your Brain Creates Your Excuse

    So what we know is that because your brain is addicted to nicotine and doesn’t want to go through any hardship to try to change it, it will create your excuses for you.  If you were to ask yourself, “What’s my excuse?” you would probably be able to come up with five to ten.  It is really that simple. 

    We all want to believe that our case is a special one, but in reality, we all go through something similar.  We are addicted, and when we try to get off of that substance it is really hard.  It hurts and your mind doesn’t want to go through it. 

    That is where vaping comes in.  It allows you to first stop smoking cigarettes but you still get the nicotine that you are addicted to.  After you are comfortable not smoking anymore, you start to edge your nicotine down.  Step by step.  It allows your brain to not have to come up with excuses, because you are slowly redesigning your neural pathway.  Slowly but surely you are making yourself less dependent on nicotine. 

    It makes it easier; not perfect but easier.  You get to have that community around you of people in the same boat as you.  You have an activity to step away from the monotony of the day for.

    In honor of your excuse, here are some of the top reasons we hear why people won’t quit:

    What happens after you quit smoking

    I’m under a lot of stress right now

    We have gone over a little bit of this earlier, but much of the stress that you carry in your life can be managed without smoking.  Smoking actually increases stress, as when you really need a cigarette but can’t in the situation that you are in.  Many people will not be able to quit thinking about that cigarette and are not actually focused on their task at hand.

    Smoking Helps Me Concentrate

    It is a known fact that smoking actually reduces the oxygen in your brain, which increases the risk of a heart attack.  The so called boost in concentration is because during the day, you are going through mini withdraws, so when you smoke a cigarette and are able to focus it is because your brain has gotten the thing that it was craving. 

    It’s too hard to quit

    This for many people is the biggest excuse.  They believe that it is hard, and guess what it can be.  That is why we are sitting here telling you to pay attention to your excuses.  The great thing about this is that there is a way to have a little help along the way.

    Vaping is a great choice because you have a community and a way to rationally step down.  You get to take it at your pace.  You have people who want to teach you how to do it, who want to see you succeed, and who will be there with you if you fail in your first attempt. 

    It is never too late to start.
