I see, I think, I feel… I express myself.

Scott ‘s views are his own and do not always represent the views of Primordial Productions. As an award winning author, public presenter and editorial writer for magazines he’s hard to contain.

This includes drugs, alcohol, shopping, gambling, sex and any behavior that someone can participate in.read more
The compulsion to smoke or vape is in your mind, it is not chemical.
Like all habits, it is created through repetition and association. The smoker “learned” to smoke habitually through subconscious conditioning.
The way to quit smoking is to “unlearn” the same exact way; by applying the very same mechanical principles that your mind uses to operate all behaviors.
What are those same principles?
