So what do successful quitters know that many people don’t?
Motivation IS The Key To Quitting Weed
Motivation is often overlooked as a way of getting the things that we want. It takes motivation to do anything whether it’s tidying up, going to work or quitting Weed. Everyone has a certain amount of motivation in order to get through the day, If we didn’t then we simply wouldn’t even get out of bed. What do you think would happen if you heard the fire alarm and you had no motivation to get up?
If I said to you ‘There is a one hundred thousand dollar prize for quitting Weed’ I bet you would find the strength to quit. This strength IS motivation and is the key to everything you want. When you have enough reasons to quit then you’ll do it, so in this article I will boost your motivation and set you on the path to being free from Weed.
What Is Motivation?
Motivation can be explained as the human need to maximize pleasure and minimize pain. This means that you can be motivated away from something you don’t want for example ‘I don’t want to smoke weed’ or ‘I don’t want to be depressed.’ You can also be motivated towards something you want, for example ‘I want to quit smoking Weed, I want to spend the money on something better, I want to be happy.’
How To Get Motivated
What Is Your Goal? (Quitting Weed!)
Not having a goal is like getting in a car without a destination, you would just be driving around never going anywhere. Having a goal is great but you must write it down, it then goes from being a thought to being real and tangible. Think about you your goal often, don’t focus on what you have to do in order to achieve your goal (that won’t increase your motivation) just focus on then end result.
Have A Time Frame
Now that you know what you want, you now need to decide when you want to achieve it. Do you want to quit today, next week, next month or next year? If you just say ‘I want to quit smoking Weed’ then you probably will one day. But when you say ‘I want to stop smoking Weed today’ then it becomes much more achievable. You then start to think of ways you can quit today instead of just wanting to quit whenever.
Most people don’t believe or are scared of quitting today but it’s good to remember that quitting weed is something to be excited by and not something to worry about. Think of all the things you will have when you quit and you’ll see that it’s worth quitting as soon as you can.
Why Do You Want To Quit?
With enough reasons ‘why’ we can achieve any ‘how.’ If you have enough reasons to quit then you will find quitting much easier, your reasons to quit will motivate you when your not sure if you want to stop or not. I’m sure that during the quitting process you will ask yourself a few time ‘do I really want to quit?’ When you think of your reasons to quit then you’ll have no doubt that quitting is the only option because it’s the beginning of a new you, a more confident, happier, better you. And like many Weed smokers you will probably be kicking yourself that you didn’t quit sooner!
It’s fine to be motivated but when you take action it builds a momentum that will set you on your way to achieving your goal. If you didn’t take action then quitting Weed simply wouldn’t be possible. Action is also key to quitting Weed, until you smoke your last joint and say ‘never again, my life is getting better from today onwards’ you will never manage quit. Start them momentum any way you can and the bigger the steps the more momentum you build.
Take a moment and ask yourself ‘do I really want to quit Weed?’ If you want to quit then do it. You will never know until you try. I know you can do it, I did it and many other people have regardless of their age, how long they have been smoking, how much they smoke, when they smoke, why they smoke and how much they crave Weed. Somewhere, somebody just like you has quit smoking Weed!
