I’ve been addicted to cigarettes since last year and I feel it has been linked to my relationships and my depression. Just recently I really have been feeling like quitting but I am having trouble letting go of the past thoughts and feelings I get when I smoke. Any ideas on how I can effectively move on from this feeling of being unwanted? I already have ideas of my own but I’m curious what you have to say or if you have any experience with smoking?
I don’t personally smoke except the ganja, i just never liked it but my fiance has smoked since he was 14 so i can relate in some ways. We’ve been together for about five or so years now. He’s suffered from depression in the past as well. He gave up cigarettes about a year ago and instead switched to vaping, i automatically could tell a difference with his mood and especially in his aura. Energetically there is a HUGE difference, being an energy reader with someone who is close to me intimately i could directly tell the difference between when he smokes cigs and when he doesn’t.
He has a nice mod machine not one of those cheap blu vapes that break within a week you can get them on amazon. If you get a good one, it will last you awhile. If you can’t give up cigarettes directly i highly recommend trying vaping to help you ease out of them. After a year he doesn’t use it nearly as much as he smoked, his dependency has went down dramatically since he stopped cigarettes.I often notice sometimes he doesn’t even vape for HOURS whereas cigarettes that was an entirely different story. There are all sorts of big tobacco articles out there saying vaping is bad but personally i feel if you have the option, vaping is a great way to reduce your intake and it is much healthier on your lungs. The Vapor that is created dissipates so quickly it won’t affect your lungs as much. It helps your body not get the Carbon monoxide and various other 1,000+ chemicals that regular smoking produces. In reality smoking nothing is better but if you had an option to ease out of it instead of going cold turkey you have a better chance of quitting this way. When we automatically quit our body goes into withdrawal mode which causes both our dopamine and serotonin levels to drop. It’s much harsher on the body.
Another Indigo friend of mine who is a reiki healer was also a big smoker she ended up switching to an actual mini-hookah and then eventually quitting due to lifestyle switch through reiki. She also went to hypnosis sessions to help her channel her energy away from using. So there are plenty of different options out there to think about.
I always saw smoking as dealing with the throat and heart chakra so automatically your relationships and communication issues are at the heart of smoking. I dont know what it is about cigarettes but Nicotine reduces and changes your serotonin levels, the neurotransmitter that regulates your mood and produces happiness. Serotonin correlates to depression and bipolar disorder.
In general the only way to move past these feelings is by facing the cognitive dissonance you are feeling, this all goes back to confidence and issues of the heart chakra. To be able to let go you need to face yourself and these issues head on by self-confidence and loving yourself. These feelings of being unwanted have to arise from somewhere, you have to question how are they important to your well-being today and WHY are you having them? Let go of the thoughts that no longer serve you. The past is in the past for a reason, the only way to move forward is so to not keep driving backwards.
hope this helps you, Good Luck!
