The Voice of Tobacco

The “voice of tobacco” is a term coined by Richard Craze in his book of the same title.

What are your own thoughts and what are those of the tobacco?

Many people are confused when you tell them not to use will power, as they still have a voice telling them it is “right to smoke'”and yet another saying ‘”but I don’t want to'”.

Being aware of this mental conflict is a help for many.

Let us see if we can help discern the difference, and even reduce the negative mental chatter.

Do a couple of complete rounds for each of the following…

 

“Even though I have this voice inside my head –
the voice of tobacco telling me to smoke
(and telling me I can’t cope without it)
I can love and accept myself anyway – fully and completely.”

 

“Even though I have this self-destructive voice
convincing me of the false pleasures of smoking
that won’t go away and I have no control over,
I can love and accept myself anyway – fully and completely.
I now choose to see it for what it is and no longer need it.”

 

“Even though I have this craving voice that
lives in fear of not being able to smoke
(telling me not to stop and that I can’t stop)
I can love and accept myself anyway – fully and completely.”

 

“Even though I have this remaining self talk telling me to smoke
I can love and accept myself anyway – fully and completely.
I now choose to respect myself enough to release this self talk.”

 

If you get a chance ( and want a humorous view on quitting smoking) I recommend you read The Voice of Tobacco by Richard Craze.
