I am a smoker.
Phew. Just putting that out there for all the world to see takes a huge weight off my shoulders. I know of all the reasons I shouldn't smoke, my kids tell me every time I go out to light up. I know it's hypocritical to talk about keeping toxins out of our homes and be a smoker. But sadly I'm addicted to nicotine. Everyday I wish I had never started this horrible chain. I know so many of you out there wish you hadn't either, so I thought why not share what I'm doing to become a non-smoker. So I've decided to make a series on my blog just about becoming a non-smoker.
Step 1: Figure out how to become a non-smoker. I've been asking around, to family and friends, and I've heard that many of my friends, my sister's coworkers, and even my dad have become non-smokers by reading. The book is called, The Easy Way to Stop Smoking by Allen Carr.
Step 2: Read the book. I bought the book from Amazon and started reading. At this point I've almost finished it.
Step 3: Pick a "quit" date. Well today is going to be my last day as a smoker. I'm looking forward to waking up tomorrow morning and finally being a non-smoker!
I highly recommend to anyone read Allen Carr's Easy Way it will remove the smoker brainwashing. As you read, you will begin to feel like you can be a free and happy non-smoker too. Allen Carr shares testimonies through out the book from people who have used his EasyWay to become non-smokers. My favorite quote from the book is "Whenever you think about smoking, . . . ,you think: YIPPEE, I'M A NON-SMOKER!!!"
Plans for my Removing the Toxins Within ~ Becoming a non-smoker series: Post updates and share how it's going every couple days in the beginning.
