How Do I Stop Smoking?

How many times have we heard ourselves say ” I know that I should stop smoking, but I don’t know how.” ?

Isn’t “How do I stop smoking?” a question that we ask ourselves almost every time we light up?

Wouldn’t it be nice to stop obsessing about it and actually find ways that you can stop smoking ?

Well…. You found it… You have found an effective drug-free method right here…. Read on….

How Do I Know I Can Stop?

If you can follow a few simple directions, anyone can stop smoking. The causes of smoking are in your thinking.

We will introduce you to the concept of Abstinence Psychotherapy​ and we give you all the tools you will need to change your thinking for effective long term results….

This is a psychological approach that employs no drugs, vapes, behavior modification, or aversion therapy.

The techniques that you will learn here will last for a lifetime.

Will I Gain Weight?

Will you gain weight when you stop smoking?

No, not unless you substitute food. This approach does not recommend any substitutions.

We will teach you precise techniques that will enable you to stop smoking without gaining weight.

Special diets in preparation of stopping smoking are not necessary.

Will I be Irritable?

A smoker’s life is controlled by nicotine. Nicotine makes you laugh, makes you cry, makes you feel sad and makes you feel satisfied. All of your emotions are hostage to nicotine.

Smoking releases dopamine to your brain. Dopamine is a “Feel Good” drug and your brain is conditioned to receive “dopamine stimulation” every 1-2 hours.

When we stop smoking, imbalances can cause people to engage in a range of behaviors, especially to react irritably to the loss of nicotine.

At Stop for Life, we understand these challenges and have a plan to help you to cope.

What if I have Smoked Most of My Life?

It does not matter how long you have smoked, how much you smoke, or how many people around you smoke.

These techniques will work for anyone, at any time, under any conditions or circumstances.

What Support Can I Expect from You?

You will be supplied with comprehensive step-by-step instructions.

The course of study and application will span 5 days….

You will stop on Day #3.

Days #4 & #5 will be spent reinforcing your decision to stop smoking.

What is My Guarantee?

We guarantee that you will stop for as long as you choose to stop.

The choice will be yours alone…. You will be in complete control.

You will never return to smoking without making a conscious and deliberate choice to smoke.

Is it affordable?

In almost every case, the cost will be less than what you probably spent yesterday on cigarettes.

By acting today, you will never again have to spend your hard-earned money by burning it up in smoke.

Why You Must Act Now

The only thing standing in your way right now from becoming an Ex-Smoker  3 days from now is Procrastination…

Procrastination is the Killer of all Ambition.

Success is found at the crossroads of Opportunity and Preparedness.

You will never be more prepared than you are right now.

Don’t miss this Opportunity…. It may never pass this way again.

  1. Thanks for sharing this post as it is something I regard as a important matter myself!

    While I don’t smoke and don’t plan too my dad as a terrible time with smoking where he just can’t seem to stop, we have tried patches and simply taking them away, but as with any addiction it’s incredibly hard to stop.

    I’ll make sure to show this post to him when I next see him as you have highlighted many key areas that should help him see that what the smoking is doing is damage and that he needs to try harder to stop the habit

    What advice would you give to someone who’s trying to help someone else who’s addicted to smoking?

    Thanks again,


    1. Hi Joshua,

      My advice is not to preach or nag… Smokers hate that and it doesn’t help at all… It never will help… In fact, Smokers  will get rebellious and smoke anyway…. 

      Here is an article for you about supporting him…, It’s for you, not for your Dad.

      Tell your Dad that you found something he may be interested in…. Do it very casually…Give him the website address and then Let the Matter Drop….. If he wants to stop, he will follow through.

      Good Luck !

  2. Hi John,

    I tried to stop smoking so many times in my life and just gave up at some point.  I am getting older and know I need to stop.  At the moment I will try anything, but I am my own biggest enemy.  As soon as I think about giving up, I smoke even more.

    Do you think it is better to stop immediately or should I try and smoke a little less every day?  I tried both in the past without any success.  What is the best piece of advice you can give me?

    Thanks for a great article!

    1. The Best Advice?

      DO IT NOW….

      Procrastination is what you are experiencing right now and you have the answer right in your hands.

      ONLY Procrastination can defeat you and ONLY immediate action can conquer Procrastination… Take the action !

      I will look forward to seeing your success story posted here. 

  3. Great article, and it shows that you can do it, no matter how hard it can be.

    My dad was a smoker, he found the courage to stop with it, my mother never stopped, she said she wants but couldn’t, seems the addiction was too high, which is bad, now it is too late unfortunately.

    This post will help people to overcome the fear of getting rid of the cigarettes, like the weight gain, however, finding something that can replace the addiction, like vegetables and more healthy food.

    Thanks for sharing it, I will re-share it!

    1. Hi Emmanuel,

      I teach Smokers how to stop without changing diets or any other activities…. The reason is that substituting anything,especially food, can be dangerous to our success… The vegetables and other healthy foods come later.

      You mentioned “Courage” and ” overcome the fear of getting rid of the cigarettes”…. Here’s an article that I wrote on that subject.

      It really doesn’t take courage… It only takes a firm decision to stop procrastinating. 

      Procrastination is a Smoker’s worst possible enemy and it is the only way you can fail. 

      Thanks for stopping by.


  4. The method that you mentioned sounds very easy to achieve within 5 days, but I know from personal experience from a family member that it is VERY difficult to quit if one has been smoking for a very long time. It’s easier said than done and sometimes, they do need to rely on some medication. I am just curious to know, what is the percentage of success rate like in your psychological approach? Thanks.

    1. Hi Cathy,

      When I was teaching seminars and had a way to track success rates, it approached 80%… That was not 80% of the class stopping… That was 80% of graduates after one full year of abstinence based upon 700+ students.

      Reliance upon any medications is totally unneccessary and extremely counter productive… Your comments indicate that you may be taking advice from someone who has not yet figured out how to stop…(Not a good idea) 

      Abstinence Psychotherapy works exceptionaly well because it treats the cause of a person’s smoking. That cause is what we have done to our own minds over the course of our entire smoking lives. 

      Brain chemistry changes as a result of daily repeated doses of both Nicotine and Dopamine. This is why Smokers often relapse after lengthy periods of time. It is not because of the Nicotine.. That’s gone in 72 hours.

      The length of time a person smokes, how much they smoke, or how many people around them smokes makes absolutely no difference whatsoever… The techniques still work.

      ONLY Procrastination can beat you, but it WILL beat a Smoker every time.


  5. Quitting smoking has been a goal of mine for ages.  I finally got pushed over the top this week by my niece when she told me that I stink from smoking and that she didn’t want to be near me. She’s 5 years old. That was a huge eye opener.

    This looks like a great option given packs of cigarettes are now more than $14 bucks in NYC. And I love the idea of quitting on day 3, lots of other options I’ve read up on can take weeks or months to slowly cut it out.

    Does this have any recommendations on getting friends and family to help support you and encourage you? Or is it mostly all on you?

    1. Hi Craig,

      Slowly cutting down only results in dragging out the temporary withdrawal. It prolongs and intensifies the withdarwal symptoms… As you noted, several programs take weeks or months. That is not necessary.

      I do not recommend getting “support” from others for 2 reasons:

      Number1, you will feel pressured and denied. Those feelings are strong and they can lead you right back to smoking… The program is carefully laid out and you get all the support you need from qualified advisors.

      Number 2, you will solicit A LOT of bad advice, mainly from Smokers puffing away on their own cigarettes as they are advising you on the best way to stop smoking. (You have probably seen this yourself already.)

      All you need to do is ACT NOW… Procrastination is the only thing that will defeat you.

      Come back and share your success story with us.


  6. Getting your mind ready to stop smoking can be a real struggle.  I do smoke, wish I didn’t and I need to quit.  Everytime I think about quitting, it seems I increase the amount that I smoke, since I am preparing myself for the loss it seems.  I am planning on decreasing my amount by 2 a day until I am done.  Do you think that is a workable approach?  Or is a much more drastic course a better way to go.  I thought I wouldn’t notice it that much if I just slowly decreased the amount.  Not sure if it is going to work though.  What are your thoughts with this plan.  

    1. Hello Marla,

      No, cutting down will not help you. As you have seen, it only caused anxiety and an increase in your smoking.

      Rather than answer all of your questions piecemeal (you are asking many), I will tell you that your very first statement about conditioning the mind is true, That’s what this program teaches…It is the Key to it all.

      Get the book and you will stop on Day #3.

      Good Luck!

  7. Hi John

    This is a helpful article about to stop smoking. First of all I want to tell that we are human beings the best creation of earth so nothing is impossible to us to avoid. Just like smoking if anyone do a strong desire to avoid smoking he will do it I guarantee it. After reading this article I noticed your 5 days stop smoking challenge. Just asking, do this’ll work to avoid smoking for the chain-smokers?

    Overall it will help a smoker to stop smoking. Thanks for the article.

    1. Hi Touhidur,

      Yes, this program will work for chain smokers, too.

      In fact, it will work for any Smoker or Vaper under any conditions or circumstances. 


  8. Being a long time smoker, I have tried so many times to stop smoking but I cannot seem to achieve it. It seems I am just my own enemy irrespective of whatsoever means I tried. I fear its a bad habit I must stop before my kids are grown up. I really wish to stop. Seeing all you highlighted here makes it seem very interesting and exciting to try out. I will definitely try it out. Thanks
