Master Key Experience, Week 14 B - I Can't Quit Smoking!!

Last week I wrote a blog post about my quitting smoking and how hard it was. It's now been 10 days since I quit, but the truth is that I cannot quit, I can't stop smoking. Say WHAT?? Oh, relax...it doesn't mean that I started again! 

So what the heck do I mean?

If you are in the Master Key Experience, you know that we can't just quit a habit. We can, however, replace a bad habit with a good habit! We must always focus on what we want - not on what we don't want. Therefore I have not "quit smoking", but I AM breathing fresh air into my lungs! :-)



"For it is another of nature's laws that only a habit can subdue another habit." 
(Og Mandino, The Gratest Salesman in the World, Scroll 1).

In the past, I used to go outside and smoke to clear my mind. What a ridicilous notion! My new habit is to go outside, breathe fresh air, and enjoy the view. THAT habit does in fact clear my mind!

I will admit that I have tried smoking after I quit, but it tasted so bad I threw it away after two puffs.  I have also tried nicotine chewing gum, but I hated it. I felt that I needed some kind of help, so I've used a vapor to make it easier for myself. I honestly don't think I would have made it past the 3rd day without it ... (I had been smoking daily for nearly 40 years. Quitting cold turkey IS hard!). 

Knowing that it might take up to 90 days to replace any habit, let alone one that is physically addictive, means that it might be premature for me to celebrate my new habit of being a non-smoker - but I promise that I will never start smoking again. And I always keep my promises!

I have already noticed some benefits, and the best of them all is that I can walk further already! In case you do not know, I have a condition that during the past three years has caused a loss of about 50 % of the blood stream to my legs, which again has caused extreme pain in my leg muscles when I've walked more than some 20 meters - on a good day.



For the first time in THREE years I was able to take my dog for a long walk in the forest yesterday. Her paws were full of mud from her running free on the moist ground, and I loved it so much - this PROOF of us having a long walk together - I had to take a photo!

One month ago I had to pause four times to make it up the hill to my house. The day before yesterday I made it to the top of the hill for the first time without stopping once. Not once!! (I could hardly believe it). I don't think this is just because I no longer smoke - but of course it helps!!! Another thing that I am confident has helped is that every time I drink water, I say to myself 'This water cleanses my veins' (placebo effect), in addition to reading my DMP and future Press Release, and repeatedly looking at my dreamboard and shapes ... especially the blue rectangle where it says, "Walk 4 hours by May 2020". I know I will. I just KNOW!

The affirmation below, which I repeat several times a day, will give me the body I desire to have - one with a healthy blood stream that fills my entire body with oxygen!




This is my additional blog post for Week 14. The main post is here.

Thank you for reading!

  3. Good on you for stopping to smoke I have not told anyone in the course but I stopped 3 months ago with smoking and 1 month ago I quit the vapor too. I don't feel any healthier for it but my body is getting better and better I just don't feel it due to the rest of the medication I am on. In my DMP I am stating to heal before 2030. So we are both in the right thinking box, but as Haanel write after 30 years of thinking wrong it will take more than 15-20 minutes right thinking to put it right, But we are getting there. I am so proud of you keep going, it is hard but you can do it. Peace be the journey.
