We all have undesired addictions we want to let go of. We try and try, but end up failing again and again. But what if the only reason we are going in endless circles of failure is the method we use to let go? Imagine you have access to an effective manual full of mental and practical exercises, the manual that’s gonna help you get rid of your bad habits. Who says we don’t have one? Now we do . . .
It’s the book that changes the chemical reactions in your brain by reprogramming it. It will cause you to let go of whatever harms you spontaneously, just like taking a course of medicine to let you eventually quit your bad habits effortlessly, and, most importantly, enjoyably. It works very effectively, as this book contains a real story for a specific method with defined exercises and calculated steps. The method has been applied to several people, and it cured them completely.
The first picture:
We will call it the “moment of pain” where you will retrieve, using your imagination, the details of a certain habit occurring from the moment the motivator for your addiction occurs, until you reach the moment right before performing the addictive action, such as lightning the cigarette. For example, seeing yourself during Christmas Eid, visiting your brother’s house, and how he, as a fellow and as someone who triggers your desire to smoke, offers you a cigarette. Imagine how your face is turning to black as soon as you see the cigarette. Visualize your weakness in front of it, the curvature of your back, visualize your lack of power, your humiliation, the darkening of your face, and remember what smoking did to you and the smell of the cigarettes coming out of your body, through your hands and through yourself! Look at your new, expensive shirt that it is now burned as a result of your smoking. Hear the sound of the rattle in your throat, as if you were an old machine destroyed by work and misuse. Hear the whine of your lungs, which are crying out for help because of how tight they feel. Feel your feelings of distress and pain, feel your weakness, and your lack of self-confidence.
Include everything in the image: even the look of the people toward you, the words of your wife, and your pain when you see the look in her eyes, full of blame, and the look of your mother, full of sorrow. Make the image strong to control your feelings. Make it full of colors and feelings, and fill it with sounds until you really feel the pain and it hurts your heart. Apply the four laws of imagination as we learned in the third chapter. You can tailor the example to suit your addiction.
We will call it the “moment of success” where you will see yourself exposed to the same motivators you were exposed to in the first picture, the ones that caused you a moment of pain, but you will see yourself now behaving with your new identity and making decisions however you want. That is, you will see the Christmas Eid celebrations again, and you will see yourself visiting your brother’s house, and him offering you a cigarette. But this time, your new identity will be unleashed, and your clean, healthy, strong face will be radiating with brightness after getting rid of all the dark smoke. Feel your self-confidence, your strength, your enormous ability to do what you want. Feel your freedom to enjoy life without being a slave to anything. Feel pity for your smoking-addicted brother.
Imagine your white teeth. Inhale your fresh breath, your beautiful scent. Enjoy the luxurious pen that you bought yourself as a reward for quitting smoking. Enjoy your moment—your moment of success—when you tell your brother, “Wishing you the same, God has honored me and won my freedom, and I am no longer a slave of cigarettes. I pray to God that He gives you what He gave me.” Then, look at his reaction, feel his admiration and jealousy! Again, tailor the example to suit your addiction and experience.
