On the 8th of January, 2018 we are launching a brand new (FREE!) Sleekgeek Challenge to help our community kick the habit.
Pledge your name below to join other Sleekgeeks who are determined to kick the New Year off rid of a habit that is holding them back in their lives.
I (Elan, founder of Sleekgeek) was a chain-smoker for 16 years smoking a box and a half a day. You never saw me without a smoke in my hand.
Pictured on the right you see me in 2009 over-weight, unfit, unhealthy and struggling to walk up stairs. Today you see me 8 years later fit, healthy and strong. Stopping smoking was one of the greatest gifts I ever gave myself.
For 16 years it was my best friend and the constant in my life. I stopped 6 years ago and I maintain despite my weight-loss it was the most powerful thing I ever did for my health. Stopping smoking is so much more bang for your buck on this journey to health than losing a few kilograms.
I am not going to sugar-coat it either. It was probably the hardest thing I have ever had to do. People who have not smoked can never understand this. The first 5 weeks were hell. So that is why this is a 6 week challenge 🙂
It is long overdue. Smoking is the elephant in the room. I see people daily in the community obsessing about eating and exercise while puffing away at the same time.
No judgement here. But if you put vanity aside and are truly interested in your health, longevity and quality of life the smoking has to go. You know it!
I have been there. I know what it feels like to actually believe that smoking makes you life better. Not being able to imagine enjoying moments in life without it. But I can promise you that here on the other side of that reality life is beautiful.
Let’s take this journey together as a community. With Sleekgeek you never have to do it alone.
So here is what we are going to do
- You will pledge your name below and wait for further communications in early Jan
- Ready yourself to stop smoking anytime between 8 and 15 Jan.
- Invite anyone you know who needs this to www.sleekgeek.co.za/smoking
So there are no massive prizes in this challenge except the prize of a NEW LIFE FREE of the chains of your addiction.
But as a sweetener I have decided to do the following:
Anyone you completes 6 weeks smoke free by the end of Feb 2017 (we working on an honesty system) will go into a draw and I will pay the winner a cash ammount equal to what you saved by not smoking for 6 weeks. So if you saved R3,000 I will pay you R3,000 so in effect you are R6,000 richer.
Pretty neat right?
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Sleekgeek are not experts in stopping smoking but we are really great at getting a group of people together and connected to achieve a common goal.
So we are going to provide the common space for you guys to support one another and shine.
You may use whatever strategy you like. Popular strategies that have worked for community members are 1) Cold Turkey 2) Allen Carr 3) Champix – but it is up to you how you want to go. Sleekgeek has no commercial affiliations in this area.
But we will have a “post before you smoke” policy. So if you at your wits end and want to light up you HAVE to first post in the dedicated Facebook group about it and wait a minimum of 10 Mins. Those are the rules.
At the start of the Challenge we will also send you some powerful exercises you can do to help you with your mindset.
BONUS – when you pledge I will also send you a summary of the Allen Carr Easy Way to Quit smoking.
Only one thing left to do.
