My blog is about success in life and business and I think it is necessary to talk here about Smoking because mental and physiological health is the most important factor of success and happiness. I smoked for 18 years. Almost every night I was throwing away cigarettes, but waking up in the morning I again went to the store for tobacco. There were successful attempts. Once I managed to Quit Smoking for one year but in the end, I smoked again after a quarrel with my girlfriend. Apparently, while I wasn't ready because I didn't understand what a drug addiction. Now I am a non-smoker again and I want to share my thoughts and conclusions about it.
The most basic idea by which I quit Smoking is the understanding that we are mental, physically and spiritually ill. The desire to smoke a cigarette-it's not our desire, it's just a disease and it will soon pass if we do not smoke and we will think correctly.

But we must remember that we expect danger in the form of stress, fatigue, alcohol, Smoking friends and so on. My method is not to wait and not be afraid of these situations. Create them specifically to train your stress resistance and willpower. In the future, if they are repeated you'll be ready for them.
