STOP SMOKING METAPHOR REPLACEMENT
How to replace the metaphor for smoking
Stop Smoking metaphor replacement is a simple but powerful technique. It consists of finding the positive metaphor that the smoker uses to think about smoking, and replace it with a negative metaphor. That way, every time the smoker thinks about smoking the negative metaphor gets stronger. This replaces the good feelings about smoking with bad feelings, and works to put off the smoker when he reaches for the next cigarette. The technique works because his mind will always have that picture now. Once you see a thing differently, you cannot unsee it.
The metaphor replacement technique can be applied to many different problems.
