YOUR QUIT & YOUR LIFE - THE PROPER SEQUENCE

Recommended Posts

When our quits are young, we must learn and then practice in a conscious manner, to disconnect and keep separate our quits from all life events.
 
We learn to always keep our quits sacred, protected, and never influenced by any life event that may happen.
 
This dynamic we may call The Proper Sequence, and it is powered by your commitment to Never.Take.Another.Puff. (NTAP).

It does not matter what may happen on any day in your life......as long as you maintain in a conscious manner The Proper Sequence dynamic as a primary element of your quit, you will not smoke.

The Proper Sequence is:


YOU --> QUIT --> LIFE.

•NOT•:

YOU --> LIFE --> QUIT.


By maintaining this simple sequence dynamic in your quit, you will not ever have your quit influenced by life events.
 
If you always keep your quit close to you, protecting it with your commitment to Never.Take.Another.Puff (NTAP), you will never, *EVER*, smoke again.
 
We build our quits, and train our minds, our emotions, and our spirits to live as non-smokers in beautiful freedom by continuing to commit to NTAP. as our way of not smoking, and our way of slowly putting this awful addiction to sleep.

Consciously adding The Proper Sequence dynamic to your new non-smoker identity will strengthen your quit even more.

This is a blue print for success. Even though you can live  his life as a new quitter and enjoy your new  freedom, you can also   be careful in places and at times where you know you may be vulnerable.  For example, taking time to see how you feel as a nonsmoker when having a drink or two before drinking a lot , or being aware of  trigger times, such as a family dinner or after a hard day. I like how Cris says we build our quits over time, which is SO true to me, growing stinger as time goes on an d new habits are made.

Yay !  I found this in the archives after I quoted, our friend Cristóbal,  in catlover's 'suck it up' post in SOS today.

 Cristóbal is a major influence in my quit, in many quits.

It is the glue that holds a successful quit together.

No matter what is going on in your life, no matter what !

You must put your quit first. 

Protect it as you would something precious because it is...it is extraordinarily precious. 

 

Remember this wise equation from our friend, Cristóbal

The Proper Sequence is:
YOU --> QUIT --> LIFE.

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.
