Tips On Stopping Smoking - Do You Want To Quit Smoking?
Many people who smoke would love to quit. Are you one of those people?
The problem is that for a lot of people it's just too hard to stop smoking. Smokers find it so hard to quit that a lot of them don't give up and continue smoking.
Smoking is hard to give up for a number of reasons. The most well known reason is that smokes contain Nicotine which is a highly addictive substance. This is what causes people to become addicted to the smoking habit in the first place.
Not only are there physical addictions but there are also the psychological triggers that make giving up hard. Smokers become so used to smoking that they have routines where they will have smokes at certain times of the day and while they do certain activities.
When i smoked I always enjoyed the after dinner smoke and the in the car to work smoke. So when you try to give up and you are in the situation where you would usually have a smoke you find yourself craving one just out of habit. So as well as breaking the physical addiction you also need to break the psychological habits.
Below are some tips on stopping smoking.
1/ You need to want to stop smoking. You need to have that desire to quit because if you are only trying to quit because you have been told to or you think you should or your partner wants you to you will not have the true motivation to quit. You need to create a burning desire to give up.
2/ Keep busy. When you find yourself in situations where you would normally have a smoke or if you find that you want a smoke try and keep yourself busy till the craving passes. Don't dwell on the craving and on how much you "neeeeed a smoke".
3/ Chewing gum can help as it keeps your mouth busy and gives you something to do instead of smoking.
4/ Avoid dwelling on the giving up process. You need to remain positive about becoming a non smoker and not dwell on how hard it is and how much you need a smoke. This just makes it harder on your self.
If all you think about is how much you want a smoke then you will not be happy till you have had one. If you focus on being a non-smoker and how healthy you are becoming it will encourage you to keep going and with each day you don't smoke you will have that very satisfying feeling that you can quit and you are.
It's the best feeling in the world to be able to say you beat the smoking habit.
Did you know that it only takes 3 days for your body to be free of Nicotine when you stop smoking. If you can make 3 days you will then just have to battle your own psychological habits. But you know what you can beat them. Say it loud "I Can Quit Smoking".
