There’s No Such Thing As Just ONE Cigarette!

just one cigarette

“There’s No Such Thing as Just ONE Cigarette!” is a statement which I boldly, clearly, and loudly, make in all the Geoff Anthony Stop Smoking Clinics.

The Geoff Anthony Easy Quit-Smoking Program offers a 100% Written Guarantee, which states:

“I am so totally confident and committed to your success, that in the unlikely event you ever start smoking again, you will be admitted to any of my nationwide clinics within one year of attendance absolutely FREE of charge!”

PLUS: Full Year Back Up Support! – If you ever even think about smoking you are welcome to attend any clinic for a ‘booster’ session or sessions within that year, also totally FREE of charge!

Based on this incredible guarantee the clinic presently has a documented 97.4% verified success rate!  With the remaining 2.6% still able to return free of charge for Total Success!

Now while I am delighted with the incredible success rate of our stop smoking clinic, I’m actually not totally satisfied, as my goal is not 97.4% success, but 100% success!

And guess what?  I believe that it is achievable! I really do!

What my staff and I have noticed over the years is that of the 2.6% that return to us for further help, practically all failed and fell over the mistaken notion of the – ‘just one cigarette’ – deception.

They come to our stop smoking clinic and to their surprise and delight find it actually so EASY to stop smoking, and then perhaps some months later when they are taken off guard on holiday, or in a social setting such as a wedding, or funeral etc. they fall into the trap of the – ‘just one cigarette’ mentality.

You see after attending our Easy Quit-Smoking Program and easily overcoming their smoking habit with the powerful tactics used in the clinic, they can just get a little overconfident.

They have found it easy to become a non-smoker, they enjoy their new found health. Money now in the pocket.  And then boom – they succumb to the nonsensical notion of the ‘just one cigarette’

Practically every one of our 2.6% returns come back to us feeling so stupid for taking the bait and falling for the lie of the ‘just one cigarette’.  They really could kick themselves.

To their horror they finally realise the ‘just one cigarette’ does NOT exist!  It’s what I call the “cigarette con”

They are always so thankful that we are there for them, and that they can come back to us and get back unto the road for total success.

And how rewarding and satisfying for me personally, along with my wonderful dedicated staff to see them back on the road to a successful, smoke-free life!

So please take note of this – ‘there is no such thing as just one cigarette’

As ex-smokers are fond of saying, “cigarettes travel in packs”.

Research shows that upwards of 90% of ex-smokers who smoke just one cigarette after quitting have immense difficulty in quitting again.

If you decide to go ahead and smoke just one cigarette, chances are you’ll soon be back to smoking as much as you used to.

Here is the one unbreakable, infallible, golden rule you must follow when you stop smoking – once you have made the decision, the final decision to become a non-smoker, you must never smoke again!

Please get this blazingly clear in your understanding, the ‘just one cigarette’ way of thinking is a deception!  It’s the great illusion and delusion!

It was the ONE cigarette that got you started in the first place.  If you had never smoked that FIRST cigarette there was NO WAY you could have become a smoker!

The ‘just one cigarette’ mentality is a myth you MUST get out of your thinking if you are ever going to truly live the smoke-free life!

It is the ‘just one cigarette’ mentality that can so easily entrap you after you quit.

Stop kidding yourself and get this firmly into your thinking – ‘there is no such thing as just one cigarette!’  Don’t make excuses for it and don’t be beguiled by it! – It doesn’t exist!

To lead a successful smoke-free existence, and enjoy that wonderful freedom, you must be completely resolved to NEVER smoke another cigarette ever again!

WHY? – Because the next smoke is always going to be just one cigarette.  As will the next one and the next one and the next one!

You see, the thing with healing from the nicotine habit, is that it relies on a large number of neurons and neural connections within your brain metabolising and breaking down due to INACTIVITY!.

The moment you smoke, especially during the early stages, you ignite weakened connections that have been laying dormant. Instead of allowing them to break down, you invigorate them and in turn, reinforce them.

Quitting immediately then becomes harder.

Having that ‘just one cigarette’ will always be a step backward.

To be free, you have to heal, and to heal, you must absolutely not smoke.

If you find yourself arguing that ‘just one cigarette’, won’t hurt, you are in all likelihood, not fully resolved to quitting.

Chances are, you’re also not prepared for long term success and have possibly quit under false expectations or pretences.

Long term success always begins and ends after your LAST cigarette and never, ever, the next!

Of the very small percentage of smokers who relapse after medium to long term success, each and every one started with just one cigarette.

If you decide that just one cigarette won’t hurt, you will almost certainly spend the rest of your life as a miserable full time smoker.

The fact is, until you choose (and you do have a choice!) to not smoke, EVER, you will never become a happy non-smoker.

If you find yourself debating whether to have just one cigarette, ask yourself this question:

Are you willing to undo everything you have achieved, all the success you have been experienced, the incredible health benefits you have enjoyed, the huge amount of money saved, and waste all that just to satisfy an extremely short and momentary whim?

A whim that will pass in less than a second or two if you allow it too.

If your answer is a resounding NO!, then without doubt, it’s time to get on with enjoying the rest of your life as a happy and healthy non-smoker!

Just go for it!
