Common Rationalizations*


Rationalization: I'm under a lot of stress, and smoking relaxes me.

Response: Your body is used to nicotine, so you naturally feel more relaxed when you give your body a substance upon which it has grown dependent. But nicotine really is a stimulant; it raises your heart rate, blood pressure, and adrenaline level. Most ex-smokers feel much less nervous just a few weeks after quitting.

Rationalization: Smoking makes me more effective in my work.

Response: Trouble concentrating can be a short-term symptom of quitting, but smoking actually deprives your brain of oxygen.

Rationalization: I've already cut down to a safe level.

Response: Cutting down is a good first step, but there's a big difference in the benefits to you between smoking a little and not smoking at all. Besides, smokers who cut back often inhale more often and more deeply, negating many of the benefits of cutting back. After you've cut back to about seven cigarettes a day, it's time to set a quit date.

Rationalization: I smoke only safe, low-tar/low-nicotine cigarettes.

Response: These cigarettes still contain harmful substances, and many smokers who use them inhale more often and more deeply to maintain their nicotine intake. Also, carbon monoxide intake often increases with a switch to low-tar cigarettes.

Rationalization: It's too hard to quit. I don't have the willpower.

Response: Quitting and staying away from cigarettes is hard, but it's not impossible. More than 3 million Americans quit every year. It's important for you to remember that many people have had to try more than once, and try more than one method, before they became ex-smokers, but they have done it, and so can you.

Rationalization: I'm worried about gaining weight.

Response: Most smokers who gain more than 5-10 pounds are eating more. Gaining weight isn't inevitable. There are certain things you can do to help keep your weight stable. (See Tips To Help You Avoid Weight Gain.)

Rationalization: I don't know what to do with my hands.

Response: That's a common complaint among ex-smokers. You can keep your hands busy in other ways; it's just a matter of getting used to the change of not holding a cigarette. Try holding something else, such as a pencil, paper clip, or marble. Practice simply keeping your hands clasped together. If you're at home, think of all the things you wish you had time to do, make a list, and consult the list for alternatives to smoking whenever your hands feel restless.

Rationalization: Sometimes I have an almost irresistible urge to have a cigarette.

Response: This is a common feeling, especially within the first 1-3 weeks. The longer you're off cigarettes, the more your urges probably will come at times when you smoked before, such as when you're drinking coffee or alcohol or are at a cocktail party where other people are smoking. These are high-risk situations, and you can help yourself by avoiding them whenever possible. If you can't avoid them, you can try to visualize in advance how you'll handle the desire for a cigarette if it arises in those situations.

Rationalization: I blew it. I smoked a cigarette.

Response: Smoking one or a few cigarettes doesn't mean you've "blown it." It does mean that you have to strengthen your determination to quit and try again–harder. Don't forget that you got through several days, perhaps even weeks or months, without a cigarette. This shows that you don't need cigarettes and that you can be a successful quitter.

Best Path To Longevity On Paul Newman

One great treat of the century was Mr. Paul Newman.
How can anyone pay sufficient tribute to Paul Newman?
Can you see how Paul Newman used shortcuts, MASTER shortcuts,
to slowly earn thousands of dollars, and then several millions of dollars,
and then, as any embracer of the Best Path To Longevity would set out to do,
earn hundreds of millions of dollars... which he chose to invest into helping the helpless?
If Paul Newman, in between acting, directing, and apparently enjoying a very happy family life,
could earn hundreds of millions of dollars to invest into helping the helpless that co-exist with greed,
then what, pray tell us, are you capable of contributing when you embrace the Best Path To Longevity?
Paul Newman, pursuing his dreams, failed and struck out before improving his life 50 years in a row!
Paul Newman improved the lives of millions who never knew, millions more who never will know.
Such a life of devotion earns Paul Newman the highest praises of the Best Path To Longevity.
May your own life be as long and giving, as happy and rich, as that of the saint, Paul Newman.
May you be perceptive enough to grasp and employ your own Best Path To Longevity.
If Paul Newman, who could not pay his family's appliance bill, could rise up so high,
it becomes untenable for any of us to blame circumstances for ceasing effort.
We do not stop something because we failed. We failed because we stopped.
Giving away even a quarter per day, the Best Path To Longevity enrichens.
Learn to give away more, and you will learn how to multiply your results.
Let Paul Newman's life, and the lives of your role models, guide you up.
The Best Path To Longevity approach works for approximately everyone.
Eschew greeting the dawn without a map for the day. The more you write, the more you make.
Stop forming opinions until AFTER you take in, and enjoy, a great deal of knowledge and experience.
Paul Newman did not give away hundreds of millions of dollars. He gave away thousands... many times over.
Anything that you do with excellence gets better with observant repetition. Live your own Best Path To Longevity.
Give a bit more, and get a bit more. It rarely works the other way around. If it is to be true, then it is exclusively up to you.
