Patience With the Process

By July 24, 2013

Follow me on:

It's a common mistake many of us make: we look at quitting tobacco as an event - a task that is over and done with within a week or two. That's not how it works though.

Recovery from nicotine addiction is a process, not an event.

Understanding what to expect as you move through nicotine withdrawal and the weeks and months beyond will prepare you for success.

Patience With the Process comes to us from Michelle Boisvert, About.com Smoking Cessation Support Forum moderator:

    "It is said that patience is a virtue, but in breaking the chains of nicotine addiction, I think patience is absolutely vital. I have learned quite a few lessons in the last 3 years, and one of the most valuable to me has been to grant myself some patience."
