How to silence the inner voice....




Posted April 9, 2014 


I have no idea where I got this from, but it's in my quit diary and I thought I share it with you guys!


As to silencing the inner voice:


The secret is a repeated conscious choice. If you draw a saw across a log one time, you may make a scratch in the bar. If you draw it across the log a few more times you may scratch the surface of the wood.


If you keep drawing the saw across the same place on the log, the scratch will get deeper, until it becomes a cut, then a groove....


If you keep on drawing the saw across the log, beyond counting the number of times, eventually you'll draw it clear through to the other side.


Every morning you get up and consciously choose not to smoke today, you're drawing the saw across the log....keep doing that...and you'll reach the other side.


Keep sawing!!!

About us

QuitTrain®, a quit smoking support community, was created by former smokers who have a deep desire to help people quit smoking and to help keep those quits intact.  This place should be a safe haven to escape the daily grind and focus on protecting our quits.  We don't believe that there is a "one size fits all" approach when it comes to quitting smoking.  Each of us has our own unique set of circumstances which contributes to how we go about quitting and more importantly, how we keep our quits.
