Smoker Identity

Your identity as a smoker is often so strong it is hard to break.

Can you imagine not smoking? Do you identify yourself as a smoker, can you ever remember not being a smoker?

For some people they have such an identity connection to being a smoker, that it makes it almost impossible to let go of the image.

Your identity as a smoker may be so deeply engrained that you may feel it is too emotionally painful to break free from.  Smoking may define who you are as a person.  And the thought of not knowing who you are if you stop smoking is a very real concern.

Tap on the following set-up phrases to break away from your identity as a smoker…

 

“Even though I won’t know who I am if I stop smoking,
I deeply and completely love and accept myself.
I choose to form a new identity that doesn’t
revolve around smoking.”

 

“Even though I’m scared to death of having a new identity
as a non-smoker,
I deeply and completely love and accept myself.
I choose to accept that I won’t be a brand new person overnight
and that the process will be
gradual and comfortable.”

 

“Even though I feel left out at the thought of giving up smoking
as a big part of my identity is tied up in smoking,
I deeply and completely love and accept myself.
I choose to gracefully let go of a part of me that
I no longer want anything to do with.”

 

“Even though I will be shunned, ridiculed and excluded from smokers (and I desperately want their approval) I deeply and completely love and accept myself.  I choose to accept my new identity of being a non-smoker.  If those who smoke cannot support my new decision they are not good friends anyway.”

 

“Even though a part of me doesn’t want to give up who I am and
I am sad to lose this part of me,
I deeply and completely love and accept myself.
I choose to move forward slowly
reinventing myself each day.”

 

“Even though I love being different, a bit wild and
smoking allowed me to rebel against society,
I deeply and completely love and accept myself.
I choose to understand I can still stand out from the crowd
without having to smoke.”
