There are many symptoms associated to quitting smoking. You know what those symptoms are, because everyone and anyone that you have told about quitting smoking will have told you what symptoms to expect, especially smokers that have failed at quitting. They will certainly try to justify their own failures by telling you how all those quit smoking symptoms were horrible and impossible to deal with.
Well, have I got news for you. If you decide that those symptoms are horrible and you let yourself be convinced of that by other people, you better believe that they will be too much to bear! If you convince yourself that you won’t be able to do it because of various symptoms, then you will fail. It’s as simple as that.
I have a suggestion for you. Quit smoking and see for yourself what those symptoms are, and decide for yourself, like a big boy – or girl – what you can and can not deal with. And you’ll be surprised at the answer!
The reality of quitting smoking is that physical symptoms, mild as they are, last only about 2 or 3 weeks at the very most. After 3 weeks, no more symptoms. And even then, they are only symptoms if you decide that they are! Smoking cigarettes is not a natural thing, and your whole body will be very glad to be rid of such a gross habit. It’s only a tiny part of your brain, the junky that’s addicted to nicotine that will bemoan the loss of cigarettes. Your lungs will feel better, and your heart will be jumping for joy!
The symptoms of quitting smoking are temporary and will disappear on their own in a few short weeks. And remember that they are only as bad as you decide they will be!
