42 POWERFUL Affirmations For Quitting Smoking

42 POWERFUL Affirmations For Quitting Smoking

Quitting smoking has given me such a sense of freedom that you will only know when you stop and feel happy about it.

I used affirmations to help me quit smoking and I can honestly say they work.

You may find you're naturally drawn to a solution that will make stoping easy (like I did).

Or you may just stop on your own accord.

Either way, affirmations do work if you say them regularly, and with positive emotion.

Also, in this article I've split the affirmations up into two categories, ones for before you quit, and ones for after you quit.

I've also put some best practices for doing affirmations at the bottom of this article.

Good luck, you can do it!

Tips For Using Affirmations Effectively

Say your affirmations to yourself at least twice a day.

As you awake and just before you go to sleep work best as your brain is a receptive state.

Also, recording your affirmations and playing them in the background works great as well.

Feeling positive emotion really enhances the effectiveness of affirmations, so try to get in a positive state when you say or listen to your affirmations. 

Playing uplifting music can help elevate your emotions as will visualizing the desired outcome, i.e. you being a happy nonsmoker.
