Welcome to episode #4 of Ask an Ex.
In this video, you’ll hear Diane’s story of how she quit smoking after 35 years in March 2018!
Diane is a strong, independent woman, and besides smoking, she had a very healthy lifestyle. She knew she could do anything.
But there was only 1 thing she hadn’t conquered yet: The nicotine addiction.
Like most of us, Diane used smoking as a crutch. And she was afraid that without it, she wouldn’t be able to cope.
But she did it!
Not only she’s now a happy non-smoker, but she also overcame challenges that would have made most people relapse.
Challenges, like depression.
Prolonged depression after quitting can happen to only 14% of ex-smokers. Diane was one of those people.
But she came out of it stronger than ever with a lot of lessons to share.
And to show you that everything will be okay as long as you remain smoke-free.
As Diane explains, smoking is psychological, and your mindset plays the biggest role in your success.
In our conversation, Diane shares:
- How she quit smoking this time
- How she overcame depression
- Tips to change your mindset that actually work
- And her advice for those who are struggling to quit smoking!
