There are many reasons to quit smoking, but your emotional reason to quit is your WHY.
Have you thought of quitting the bad habit? Have you reflected on why you want to stop?
There are so many reasons, but deciding what will motivate you is up to YOU. The most apparent reasons are money and health! Perhaps you want to live a healthier life and keep your family safe. Maybe it is all of the above!
The truth is, the reason can vary from another person. That is why you should look at your goals! It is the best motivator to stop.
Furthermore, it makes for an excellent entry into your quit journal. Do you know why you want to quit? If not, ask yourself these essential questions:
- Is there something you hate about smoking?
- How is your health now?
- Is there something you are missing while smoking?
- Will your life improve or get better when you quit?
- What will happen to my family if you do not stop smoking?
Once you know why you want to quit, keep reminding yourself of the reasons as to WHY every day. Doing this keeps you motivated to stop for good.
