Quit Smoking Support
Do you believe that you can quit? If you don't, you will have a much harder time trying to quit. The best action you can take right now to start the quitting process is to fix in your mind the belief that you have the ability to quit smoking. You might say that you can't change your belief, but you can.
Believing you can quit is so important because your belief will guide everything you do in your attempt to quit. The way you think, the research you do, the steps you take, the people you talk to, the help you seek--all these will be influenced by the belief you have in your ability to give up cigarettes.
If you don't truly believe you can quit, you'll probably find yourself saying, "What's one little cigarette? I've got a headache. I just can't quit like other people." If you believe you can quit, instead you'll be saying "My head is hurting from withdrawal, but I can make it through this. I know the headache and other withdrawal symptoms will go away in a few days. My life is more important than a stupid cigarette."
Believing shapes everything you do. So does not believing.

help your body take you in the direction of your belief.
Fixing in your mind a belief that you can quit smoking may
sound impossible if you now believe that you don't have the ability. Here are some tips to
help you change your beliefs:
