THE 72 HOUR QUIT SMOKING CHALLENGE

QUIT SMOKING


There is a little known secret to those wanting to quit smoking.  If only someone would have shared this with me 20 years ago I wouldn't have wasted all that time and money smoking cigarettes.  The fact is that nicotine leaves your body very rapidly as long as you don't put more nicotine in.  In fact if you stop smoking or taking any kind of nicotine for 72 hours, your body will be nicotine free.  In the most simple terms, that means that you will have removed the chemical that you have been addicted to for 10, 20, 30 years.

Here is my challenge to you.  To all of those people who are considering quitting smoking but do not know where or how to start.  Start tomorrow, and don't smoke a cigarette, chew tobacco, use a patch or any other nicotine replacement therapy for 72 hours. 

Once you make it 72 hours without a cigarette you will be able to make a conscious decision about whether or not you want to place that poison in your body any longer.  You will be thinking for yourself, as a non addict, for the first time in a very long time.  Up to now you  have not been able to think freely because nicotine has controlled your life.

Right now many of you believe that you enjoy smoking, that you gain something from lighting up a cigarette.  The reality is you gain nothing, you don't enjoy it, and if your mind wasn't clouded with chemicals you would realize it yourself.

Here's what I want you to do.  Decide when you are going to start the 72 hour challenge.  Once you start no matter what happens do not light a cigarette, take a chew of tobacco or use nicotine in any way.  You can accelerate the process of ridding your body of nicotine by drinking cranberry juice which will actually flush your system ever faster.   Try and find a natural cranberry juice that is not loaded with sugar or sugar substitutes.  Read the truth about smoking and why you should quit smoking today.  QUIT SMOKING THE TRUTH ABOUT SMOKING

Plan your next 72 hours down to the minute.  Make sure you have something to do all day and night.  You may find it difficult to sleep as your body heals but when you cross the finish line you will no longer be addicted physically to this nasty drug.   You will in fact have quit smoking!!!!

There are so many reasons to quit smoking, but really no good reasons to continue.  Write your quit reasons down on a sheet of paper and read them at least once an hour during your waking hours.  Continually remind yourself why you are doing this.

At the end of 72 hours have an honest discussion with yourself.  Chances are you will find out the following.

  1. There really is no physical pain in quitting smoking.
  2. When you don't smoke a cigarette you really won't crave the next cigarette
  3. Quitting smoking is easy - and it only gets easier with every day you abstain.
  4. If you can stop smoking for 72 hours, imagine what you can accomplish in the other parts of your  life!!!!

It's so great to see that you have made a decision to stop putting this filthy drug in your body.  Good luck on the challenge and let me know the results!!!!

  3. If you have already realized that smoking is causing so much of discomfort and pain, you should try to leave this habit as the best way to get relived from pain.

  5. I really want to agree with this except for a few things: There IS physical pain associated with the withdrawal symptoms, often chest pain, in fact, that's most commonly the REASON people go back to smoking, it hurts to quit and nicotine addiction is only PARTIALLY physical. Yeah, once the 72 hour period is up, your body won't be physically dependent on the drug anymore, but then you still have to replace all those habits associated with smoking. You need to find other things to do when you're stressed, bored, angry, just orgasmed, sleepy too hyper, etc.This is the MOST IMPORTANT ASPECT But, the real point here is that it sucks for those three days, but it's a hell of a lot better than cancer or emphysema. Glossing over the nastier mental aspects of the withdrawal here, though, is going to cause more harm than good and tells me you either were not a heavy smoker, or were never a smoker at all. Like alcohol and cocaine, the PHYSICAL addiction to nicotine is a cakewalk to break, it's the psychological and emotional addiction that causes it to be so damned hard to quit and stay quit.

  6. True, the physical addiction is much easier to break then the mental addiction. Sounds like you need to read my post on breaking the psychological addiction to smoking http://quitsmokingwithoutpain.blogspot.com/2012/02/breaking-psychological-addiction-to.html

  8. In 5 minutes (9AM PST) I will have hit the 72 hour mark. I actually did this on my own, and then googled, "why don't I feel better after quitting smoking for a few days?" - and discovered this link - good stuff from many of you. I feel like I'm truly bored at times (many times throughout the day). However, I have gotten a ton more sleep, stopped drinking coffee at the same point I quit, and switched to Green Tea, but feel "slower" if that makes sense? I don't have the urgency to accomplish multiple things in a row, but I do recognize this is an important and very necessary step....but I just don't feel or seem to look that much better....what's the deal here? Thanks!
