Tip-18: Five Most Common Myths about Quitting Smoking

My name is Joseph Giove. I’m a biomedical engineer and a clinical hypnotist. I’ve helped thousands of people stop smoking over the last twenty five years. I created this video series to help you become free of the habit an addiction of smoking cigarettes.

Five Myths About Stopping Smoking:

quitting smoking is hard. Not! quitting smoking is easy when you approach it the proper way.

I am not addicted. Bull. If you are smoking more than 2-3 cigarettes a week you are addicted. If you cannot stop; if you cannot put them down; then you are addicted. Nicotine is a habit and it creates the addition.

I will gain weight. No, you will not gain weight when you quit smoking properly, i.e., where you do not replace the habit of smoking with the habit of eating. So gaining weight is not an automatic assumption once you quit smoking.

I am losing a friend. No, you are not losing a friend; in fact, you are not losing anything at all. You are gaining everything. It is pure gain to quit smoking. If nicotine was a friend it was the worst possible friend you could ever have: it lied, cheated and stole from you. Cigarettes, smoking and nicotine are not your friends.

How will I deal with stress? You will deal with stress in a more healthy and constructive way because nicotine is a stimulant. When you get stressed out do you think about going to Starbucks and doing a triple shot of espresso? Of course not; that sounds silly to address stress with a stimulant, doesn’t it? Nicotine is a stimulant. The fact that you think it reduces your stress is actually a false association. When you stop putting that stimulant in your body you actually find it easier to deal with stress. You will learn a different way to deal with stress rather than putting a cigarette in your mouth, toxifying your body and adding a stimulant.
