I have gone cold turkey for the last 3 days and it was fine up to the last hour, all of a sudden I was hit by nicotine withdrawal, I became very anxious and could not stay still, my legs got heavy and I became very light headed. I fought it for a half an hour but had to smoke one or else I was going to have to ring the doctor, I felt that bad. I thought these cravings only lasted a few minutes, I hope that is the last one I smoke. I never liked smoking tobacco but got addicted because I mix it with cannabis that I have smoked for 17 years. I am off the cannabis over a week and there is no problem or withdrawal and I don't want it any more, it has run its course. I was never a heavy smoker, so it will be easier to give up, I hope.
Has anyone gone through this that can give me some advice on how to deal with those cravings? I was off them for 7 months last year but I used nicotine patches for the first 10 weeks, it draws it out for to long.
you might want to get the attunement....for those energies of the Ascended Masters...what we were talking about a couple of weeks ago.
Our thoughts are very powerful and it is up to us to control them and keep them positive. I did a meditation a few months ago with Ascended Masters, Arch Angels and Angels to get my chakras flowing properly, what is this attunement you are talking about?
It is called Sanjeevani ( I think this is the name of a magic plant that heals all illness) the info is listed under ACC events......the man was doing free attunements. I don´t know if he is still around, he was a bit discouraged because he did not get much response. You can leave him a message if you are interested. He works with the energies of the Ascended Masters......in India they have been working with the Ascended Masters for hundreds of years.......but we only learned about them in the past 50 years in the west.
You are right, I do have a sub-conscious hesitation about life, it holds me back a lot and makes me very stand-offish. I have let it become conscious and will let it go, that has been there for a long time. I like this style of healing and keep coming across it these days.
Now that you have brought awareness to this,,,,especially since you see how it affects your life... it will adjust slowly... there are crystalized thoughts that need to dissolve.
This is the quickest, cheapest and easiest way to heal.......but the problem for me is to see my mistakes in the thinking,,,,,,I guess that is why they call it sub-conscious. Once I see the mistake it is easy to fix. I just bring awareness to it....and I stop doing whatever it was that was wrong. I guess this is why we need other people to be mirrors so we can see ourselves.......it is so hard to see the mistakes in our way of thinking because thinking is a habit and for us it feels normal.
Here is how my grandmother quit. If she could, anyone can. She never once said she quit smoking. Instead she said, I haven't smoked in __, fill in the time blank. :) Maybe you can't go cold turkey. Don't rag on yourself if you can't. What matters is your intent. It isn't failure to have one when it is bad like tonight. Okay? Allow and forgive yourself. If you need one at times, don't sweat it. I read in a medical rag, what ever that is worth :), that it is safe to smoke 3 cigarettes a week. No addiction with that small amount and it doesn't cause you harm. I do wish you the best on this, sweetie. :))
btw, how do you get the reply and edit buttons on your comments. Please? :))
The reply button is here on the forum,,,,not on the blogs. It is there automaticallly...we don´t do anything. The edit button the same,,,but it is only there for 15min after you comment.
lol Feather Winger, I never doubted you, sweetie. I was confused about who and how. lol Now, I've got it. Thank you. :)
Dawn, it´s ok,,,I didn´t take it personally. You just want these buttons on the blogs and you were asking around,,´´hey dude,,nice buttons,,,where did you get those.´´ It is inconvenient not having them on the blogs.
Dawn, I'm not a 100% sure, as usually there's nothing one can do with these things, but ask Ben if there is an upgrade to the forum php that will allow the reply and edit option for blogs.
The Violet Flame would be good to clear these problems. If you go up to the ACC Violet Flame group, there is lots of info there. You can read the info without joining the group.
I go straight to source when doing healing meditation but will have a look at the group with an open mind.
