If you really want to quit smoking, you have to convince your unconscious mind that it doesn't want or need a cigarette.  Your conscious mind already knows it doesn't want to smoke, it knows it is detrimental to your health, but your unconscious keep thinking differently.

There is tremendous power in positive thinking.  Have you ever heard the phrase "if you believe  you can achieve, then you can."  This is a very true statement, you will never be able to accomplish anything that you don't think you can.  Whether it is at work, home, athletics, etc. 

Often times we focus on the negatives, what bad things smoking is doing to us.  Instead start focusing on the positives of what not smoking will do for you.  Don't say I'm going to quit smoking, say I'm going to start taking care of my healthy body.  I'm going to enjoy the sweet smell of mother earth through my new improved sense of smell.

Every day, and especially every night before bed, repeat to yourself how much you enjoy not smoking and how great you feel.  Remind yourself that smoking will keep you from achieving what you want in life.  Remind  yourself that smoking is bad and you don't enjoy it or need it.  Repeat out loud to yourself as many times a day as possible.  Even if it is a whisper under your breath.  You have to reprogram your unconscious mind to understand it doesn't want or need a cigarette and that you truly will enjoy life so much more without them.

Repeat those positi ve affirmations as often as possible.  Eventually your unconscious will get the message and you will no longer have that inner battle of conscious versus unconscious thoughts.  They will both be in agreement.

Good luck on your journey!!!  And congratulations on quitting smoking!!!!
