Has Smoking got you down??

Does it sometimes seem like insanity trying to quit?

Make this your Banner Year for Changing all that!

Decide - Your Right Now Affirmation to Stop Smoking
Then do it!!

Nicotine Addiction

There is no longer any doubt that smoking causes all sorts of physical problems, disease,

and death.

Second-hand smoke is harmful to those who are breathing it in. Children can suffer physical

defects and emotional problems if their mother smoked while she was pregnant.

Do cigarettes or tobacco control your every waking moment? Does your breath reek of smoke?
Are your fingers stained?
Do your teeth look yellow?
Do your eyes water and look puffy?

Be honest--

* Have you ever desperately searched through ashtrays in a frenzied attempt to find a

butt worth smoking?
* Every time you wash your walls, windows, or drapes, do you cringe at the sight and

color of that ghastly, greenish-yellow nicotine?
* Do you huff and puff, walking up a flight of stairs?
* Do you wish to live longer?

You can change all this by a sincere desire to quit smoking, taking action, and using the

Affirmation Process.

Empower Your Affirmations

Just what is an affirmation, you may ask? An affirmation is simply a positive sentence

stating exactly what you desire. To affirm is to state that it is so and maintain this

attitude regardless of what is happening around you--and then the answer will come.

Just know that any idea that is accepted by your brain is automatically transferred into an

action of some kind. It may take seconds, minutes, or longer, but ideas always produce a

reaction of some kind. Say to your subconscious mind, "Hey wonderful mind you know how to

assist me in becoming a non-smoker and I now ask for your help, for which I give thanks,"

Then do an affirmation as set out below.

The power of creation is always present in the now and you are always creating and

re-creating. If you have a problem, you created it and you can uncreate it.

Always affirm in the present time. Saying and decreeing, "I deserve and now have" makes it

present tense. If you say, "I deserve and will have," you are putting the manifestation off

into the future--perhaps some future lifetime. Your subconscious mind will honor the

postponement inherent in this statement. You cannot live in the past, present, and future at

the same time.

Avoid Using Negative Terms

When structuring your affirmations, refrain from using the word not. For example, "I, (your

name), deserve to be a non-smoker and do not smoke." Your subconscious mind could cancel out

the negative word not and your affirmation would then read "I, (your name), deserve to be a

smoker and do smoke," which, of course, would be reinforcing the fact that you smoke.

Instead, structure your affirmation as follows:

Affirmation to Stop Smoking

"I, (your name), deserve to be and now enjoy being smoke-free".

One Example

Laura told me she was disappointed in the affirmation process. Even though she was

faithfully doing her affirmations, she was still depressed and unhappy. In fact, it was even

getting worse! I asked her to read what she had written in her Master Affirmation.

It read, "I, Laura, deserve to be and now am not depressed." When she was affirming over and

over that she was not depressed, her mind was cancelling out the word not. She was actually

affirming that she was depressed.

As in the above example of smoking, her mind had been trained not to recognize the word not.

She changed her affirmation to read:

"I, Laura, deserve to be and now am depression-free. I am happy and free of depression."

Today, Laura is happy and peaceful.

The ABCs of Health

Always accept responsibility for your health. Accept responsibility for the damage that

smoking is doing to your body. Learn about and understand the full nature of the harmful

effects of smoking. Always be conscious of what you can do to assist your body in cleansing,

healing, and revitalizing.

Be yourself. Never attempt to copy others. You are unique. Believe that you can and will

STOP smoking and be willing to explore various avenues of healing and ways to accomplish

this. Listen to the advice of your healthcare practitioner and other well-meaning people,

then make your own decisions based on the information you have obtained.

Cleanse your mind, emotions, and body of harmful drugs, nicotine, negative thoughts,

emotions, or chemicals. Nicotine and drugs can act as poisons in your system; toxins form a

part of chronic, degenerative disease caused by smoking.

You have the choice. You can choose to quit smoking and you can choose to be sick or

healthy. You cannot concentrate on sickness and health at the same time. Two opposing

thoughts cannot live under the same mental roof at the same time.

Speak positively to yourself through affirmations. Positive, directed spoken words are

thoughts that create invisible, wondrous power and work to create your desired result--you

being smoke free and in perfect health. Your body, mind, and soul are connected. What your

mind thinks, your body feels. Emotional pain causes physical pain and, in time, this can

cause physical disease.

Give Yourself Permission to Stop smoking and to be Healthy.

Permission-to-Stop smoking Be Healthy Agreement

"I, (your name), hereby give myself permission to Stop Smoking and to be 100 percent

healthy. I deserve, create, and have health and happiness in my life. I believe in myself

and my ability to quit smoking right here, right now. I do my affirmations regularly. I take

responsibility for health and body.

I find and employ ways to improve my health daily. I enjoy relaxing, meditating, and

exercising. I love myself unconditionally.

I accept and approve of myself. I allow myself to be me. I am whole, perfect, strong,

powerful, loving, harmonious, and happy, to the good of all parties concerned. Thank you,

thank you, thank you.

I fully accept

Signed: _____________________________
Dated: _____________________________
Witness: ___________________________
Dated _____________________________

When you sign your name, you say, "Yes, I validate, accept, and agree with this

permission slip. I am aware that no one else has a signature just like mine." You have just

created a legal, binding document with yourself, your subconscious mind, God, Universal Mind

or whomever you believe in.

Read your Master Affirmation over every morning and every evening and then step ahead two or

three days, weeks, months, bringing in the five physical senses.

See yourself as a non-smoker. Bring in the other four physical senses-
Hear people saying how great you look
Feel how healthy you feel
Smell a flower or cologne and for
Taste, visualize biting into a juicy apple or taking a drink of clear, sparkling


You already are a non-smoker; you are stepping into that place right now! After you have

written, dated, and signed the Permission to quit smoking and to be Healthy Agreement,

should your body still not be willing to accept the positive statements of health, such as
"I am a non-smoker,
I am whole, perfect, strong, powerful, loving, harmonicons, happy, you could say this:

Master Affirmation to Quit Smoking

"My health is improving daily. The desire to smoke becomes less and less every day, until it

completely leaves my body. I enjoy being a non-smoker. I enjoy a smoke-free environment. My

body and mind now totally accept this affirmation as a statement of truth. I am peaceful.

Every cell, nerve, tissue, and muscle of my lungs and my whole body is now healing and

becoming 100 percent healthy. I enjoy being and now am smoke-free. I believe in myself and

my ability to be smoke-free. I easily refuse cigarettes or any form of tobacco, to the good

of all parties concerned. Thank you, thank you, thank you."

I fully accept
