7 Easy Steps to Quit Smoking Using the Law of Attraction
Step#1: Accept you are a smoker and find true purpose in your life
Accept the fact that you’re a smoker. Don’t deny this truth. Be honest and take full responsibility.
If you’ve chosen to smoke instead of adopting a productive and rewarding habit, it’s your fault. Don’t blame other people and circumstances in your life.
You see, your egoic mind likes to believe that it’s not your fault and you’re a victim of circumstance. And, it encourages you to continue smoking even if you know that it’s not good for your health.
When you accept that you’re a smoker and it’s your fault, you’ll begin to contemplate the idea of quitting smoking as you’re no longer under the influence of an egoic mind by being against it. You start to think that something has to be changed to live a healthy and successful life.
Plus, self-acceptance makes your mind clear and calm by releasing resistance and stress. A peaceful mind is necessary to quit smoking using the law of attraction.
Furthermore, you need to have a higher purpose in life. When you strive for higher goals, you simply don’t have time and energy to waste in destructive, useless, and self-sabotaging habits like smoking.
You can’t have a higher vision for yourself and smoking at the same time. Smoking doesn’t fit in with your success.
If you use the law of attraction to manifest your biggest dream, the universe assists you on your path to success by helping you quit smoking and other bad habits that handicap it.
In short, if you’re abusing your body by smoking, you’re telling the universe that you’re not worthy of abundance and happiness in your life.
Step#2: Know the trigger factors that prompt you to smoke
Most people begin smoking during their teenage because of peer pressure or to look cool. As they continue smoking, it becomes an addiction and a destructive habit.
Like any other habit, smoking has trigger factors that create an irresistible urge to smoke. Specific situations, feeling, moods, people, and activities could be a trigger for smoking.
To find what makes you smoke, you need to observe your smoking pattern. For a week or so, pay attention to the time, place, feeling, or whatever things that make you smoke and write things you do before and after smoking.
Anger, stress, anxiety, fear, lonliness, boredom or feeling overwhelmed, pleasure, clebration, sense of belonging or to look cool are common trigger for smoking.
If you’ve tried to quit smoking in past, then you might know how difficult it is to stop smoking once you have an urge to it. So, finding the triggers and avoiding them is a smart move than fighting an uphill battle against an irresistible urge.
Plus, knowing triggers give you the idea of things that you should be avoiding or achieving to quit smoking. And you can use the law of attraction to get rid of triggers.
Let’s say, a person you love is severely ill that makes you sad and depressing. To avoid being sad and depressed, you start smoking. In this case, you should be manifest good health for someone you love to successfully quit smoking instead of going cold turkey.
You see, you can’t change the habit of smoking unless you, first, deal with the reasons that make you smoke.
Step#3: Find the compelling reason to quit smoking
If you’re thinking of quitting smoking using the law of attraction, there must a reason behind it. In fact, you need to have a strongly compelling reason to quit smoking.
Otherwise, you can’t continue abstinence from smoking down the road.
To find the strong reasons for quitting smoking, write down the pros and cons of not smoking.
