My World Without Smoking

Every woman has her own reasons for smoking. Every woman can find her own way of quitting and staying smoke-free— in her own time.

Visualizations can be a way to remind yourself of all your reasons for deciding to quit smoking, act as a distraction when you have a craving, be a break from the busy-ness of daily life, and help keep you on your path.

Find a quiet place to sit down. Close your eyes, take a deep breath in and out, and step into...

My world without smoking. What a crazy idea. Or so it seemed...

They say a journey begins with a single step. What was my first step on this journey? I can’t remember the hour or the day exactly, but I remember when something inside me shifted and said "This is the path you now need to take. A world without smoking is possible."

Every day I move a step closer to this new world. It’s something that is both far away and something that I create every moment of every day. With every breath, I get closer to living in a world without smoking.

In a world without smoking:

  •   I don’t have to organize my day around needing to smoke.
  •    I have more choices about how I spend my money.
  •   My body reminds me all the time of how much easier it is to breathe and move.
  •   It’s easier to make healthier decisions for myself in terms of exercise and eating.
  •   My kids are smoke-free too.
  •   I help to make the world a greener place.
  •   I am part of a group of women who are changing the world for the better everyday.

In my world without smoking, I can relax a little more than I could before. I can find a little more space to be me. I can just take the time to breathe and catch my breath.
