People using willpower to give up smoking often don't do two key things. The first of these is to make stopping smoking a permanent commitment. Rather than saying “I am becoming a non smoker for ever”, and removing all the unnecessary pressures and doubts, people often use such phrases as “I'll give it a go” or, “I'll stop for a week and see how I feel”.
How would you feel about making it a permanent commitment, instead of keeping a get out clause in the back of your head? If you make a 100% commitment, then you will actually be under less pressure, not more. You might not be ready to do this yet, but we hope that you will be ready at some point, because we think it will be incredibly helpful.
The second key point is about people using their powerful imaginations to help them succeed. In fact people using willpower to quit often actively switch off their imaginations. See the next page for more details.
