Some quit smoking sites recommend that meditation is an effective way to help people quit smoking. It is said that meditation will help us to control our mind, thus helping you to fight the temptation of smoking. I personally agree with this method, since quit smoking is truly are a matter of mind controlling.
It’s usual for people to feel very sick, helpless, weak, lack of energy, or out of concentration whenever he/she tried to quit from smoking. These feelings will start to arise at the exact time someone start to quit smoking and keep echoing within his/her mind days after the effort to quit is start. Those feeling will getting much stronger each and everyday until it reaches the point that makes the person think that they do need to smoke and sure that they can do nothing without it. That’s why many quit smoking wannabe person giving up their effort. Meditation does something you have to consider to solve this problem.
The key is to get your mind controlled and turn off all the "false alarm" arise by your mind. See all that feeling of sick, helpless,lack of energy, and out of concentration are not a true "feeling". It’s just your thought, yet it is strong enough to make your brain think that you really feel it in your body. Just like people who suffer from psychosomatic syndrome, they feel sick (although there’s totally nothing wrong with their body) because they keep thinking that they are sick. So when a quit smoking person feels those feeling of weaknesses, sickness, or hard to concentrate, actually there’s nothing wrong with his/her body. All parts of their body system are working as much as when they are smoking.
Meditation work out to free yourselves from those thought. By meditating you will be guided to think clearly an to feel your body in it’s true state. It will make you realize that actually your body is running just as normal as before. This way your brain will be protected from all of those "false alarm" that come from your mind.
