Common Rationalizations*


Rationalization: I'm under a lot of stress, and smoking relaxes me.

Response: Your body is used to nicotine, so you naturally feel more relaxed when you give your body a substance upon which it has grown dependent. But nicotine really is a stimulant; it raises your heart rate, blood pressure, and adrenaline level. Most ex-smokers feel much less nervous just a few weeks after quitting.

Rationalization: Smoking makes me more effective in my work.

Response: Trouble concentrating can be a short-term symptom of quitting, but smoking actually deprives your brain of oxygen.

Rationalization: I've already cut down to a safe level.

Response: Cutting down is a good first step, but there's a big difference in the benefits to you between smoking a little and not smoking at all. Besides, smokers who cut back often inhale more often and more deeply, negating many of the benefits of cutting back. After you've cut back to about seven cigarettes a day, it's time to set a quit date.

Rationalization: I smoke only safe, low-tar/low-nicotine cigarettes.

Response: These cigarettes still contain harmful substances, and many smokers who use them inhale more often and more deeply to maintain their nicotine intake. Also, carbon monoxide intake often increases with a switch to low-tar cigarettes.

Rationalization: It's too hard to quit. I don't have the willpower.

Response: Quitting and staying away from cigarettes is hard, but it's not impossible. More than 3 million Americans quit every year. It's important for you to remember that many people have had to try more than once, and try more than one method, before they became ex-smokers, but they have done it, and so can you.

Rationalization: I'm worried about gaining weight.

Response: Most smokers who gain more than 5-10 pounds are eating more. Gaining weight isn't inevitable. There are certain things you can do to help keep your weight stable. (See Tips To Help You Avoid Weight Gain.)

Rationalization: I don't know what to do with my hands.

Response: That's a common complaint among ex-smokers. You can keep your hands busy in other ways; it's just a matter of getting used to the change of not holding a cigarette. Try holding something else, such as a pencil, paper clip, or marble. Practice simply keeping your hands clasped together. If you're at home, think of all the things you wish you had time to do, make a list, and consult the list for alternatives to smoking whenever your hands feel restless.

Rationalization: Sometimes I have an almost irresistible urge to have a cigarette.

Response: This is a common feeling, especially within the first 1-3 weeks. The longer you're off cigarettes, the more your urges probably will come at times when you smoked before, such as when you're drinking coffee or alcohol or are at a cocktail party where other people are smoking. These are high-risk situations, and you can help yourself by avoiding them whenever possible. If you can't avoid them, you can try to visualize in advance how you'll handle the desire for a cigarette if it arises in those situations.

Rationalization: I blew it. I smoked a cigarette.

Response: Smoking one or a few cigarettes doesn't mean you've "blown it." It does mean that you have to strengthen your determination to quit and try again–harder. Don't forget that you got through several days, perhaps even weeks or months, without a cigarette. This shows that you don't need cigarettes and that you can be a successful quitter.

Psychology of Longevity Self-Help - QRA - FAVORITES Of The Psychology of Longevity

The Psychology of Longevity exists to help you to help yourself. You simply must learn more to live more.
It is less important to stretch out the quantity of your years as it is the quality of your every day.
Look how many make it to their 70's and 80's... and feel so sick they wish they HADN'T made it.
Water, unheated oil, air-dried sea salt, fiber, and friendly bacteria, such as found in kefir.
Keep It Short & Sweet - The K.I.S.S. of success for extending Longevity in happier ways.
Live your Psychology of Longevity to see how the Psychology of Longevity treats you.
Stop eating foods that have been prepared by other people who do not care about you.

If a food is advertised nationally, the Psychology of Longevity is probably not recommending it.
You are paying for executive salaries, perks, expenses, luxuries... and a great deal of advertising.

It is better, wiser, and healthier to count upon more of your internal resources, such as knowing how to breathe.
Oh, you THINK you know how to breathe. The Psychology of Longevity begs to differ. Did you breathe deeply today?
How many times have you exhaled all the way out, then, while thinking your lungs are empty, exhale even more air?
How fully you empty your lungs has an even larger influence on cleaning out toxins than how deeply you breathe in!
It's true! When you think your lungs are empty, you generally have at least two more quarts of dirty air inside.
So, the Psychology of Longevity urges you to exhale deeply, then exhale more, before slowing breathing in.

Doing this five or ten times per day will provide significant assistance to dozens of bodily functions,
not least of which are better, clearer thinking, more imagination, better lungs, immune system, etc.

From proper breathing techniques to BDORT and Quantum Reflex Analysis, there is so much for you.
From the Psychology of Longevity to a thousand other great resources, learn more to live more.
