This might seem like a silly question, but it’s actually a very important one; if you don’t know why you want to quit, it’s going to be much harder to stay free once you do.
First, for you and me and countless others, smoking is not merely a habit; it’s an addiction. Second, addictions cannot be cured; once an addict, always an addict. Third, the only way to control an addiction is to starve it.
Actually, I don’t know of a single quote by old “Honest Abe” about quitting, but he did say that “Most folks are about as happy as they make up their minds to be.” (Or words to that effect.)
In fact, resistance is worse than futile, it’s self-defeating.
If you follow this simple two-step quit plan, you will never smoke again.
