Snapping Cigarettes: A Powerful Psychological Technique

When it comes to your Quit Date do you plan to:

  • Smoke every last cigarette you have?
  • Save any left over cigarettes for use in emergency?
  • Snap any left over cigarettes and throw them in the trash?

If you answered the latter, then there’s a good chance you’ve already improved your chances of quitting.

You see, snapping those leftover cigarettes gives your brain the powerful message that you intend to stop smoking once and all.

Smokers (in general) are very protective over their cigarettes and hate to see them wasted. I know I certainly was when I smoked! I would be mighty pissed if if I discovered I’d lost my fags or accidentally dropped one in a puddle.

During the final 24 hours as a smoker, you have a great opportunity to tell your brain that cigarettes are worthless and that you don’t need them – and you do that by snapping (or destroying in some other way) your leftover cigarettes.

If you try to smoke all the cigarettes you have or put any leftover cigs in a cupboard, you’re telling yourself that cigarettes are still of great value to you and you may still need them in the future. Why else would you make sure every last cigarette was either smoked or stored away?

Snapping cigarettes may seem like a small thing but I believe it is a very powerful and liberating technique and would urge anyone that has decided to quit to do it.

    Try to find something else to have in your mouth, such as gum, and then keep that in your mouth most of the time so as not to be able to put anhtniyg else in your mouth. Get rid of cigarettes and matches and stay away from people who smoke and stores that have cigars and cigarettes to lower temptation.
