This is a neuro linguistic programming exercise that is very useful in helping people quit smoking, drinking or any other vise. Close your eyes and
think of a smell that is totally repulsive to you, imagine it vividly, for example rotten eggs will do the job for me. Now imagine that your are
breathing that awful smell and you are totally repulsed by it, feel it in your stomach. As you are doing this pinch your left hand with your right
hand and keep imagining and smelling that repulsive smell until you feel very disgusted. Do it for as long as you can. Now while still doing this
imagine yourself taking a drag from your favorite cigarette, then a bit more and more gradually increasing the amount of smoke. Now imagine that
disgusting smell getting mixed with the smell and taste of your cigarette, keep repeating this process and continue practicing this exercise until you
find anything but repulsion in the idea of smoking a cigarette.
