4 Tips For Smoking Cutoff

Tip 1: Rise above the desires

Imagine the cigarettes as crutches. You’ve always had these crutches to lean on and soon; it becomes impossible to walk without them. The important thing to determine is that as soon as you walk on your feet again, they’ll quickly recover strength. It may be a little-known fact, but about half of what a smoker inhales from their cigarette is pure air. The next time you’re hit with desire, take some deep breaths and relax. You will soon be able to rise above the yearning, feel refreshed, and move on.

Tip 2: All the reasons to stop

Why do you want to stop? Do you have kids? Do you want to live to see your grandchildren? Are you sick of the smell? Whatever your reasons are, write them down. Keep a daily journal of how you feel and in the very first entry list in bold letters every reason you have for stopping. List things like health reasons, expense, inconvenience, bad breath, or other reasons and make your list as long as possible. Also be sure to list how you will feel when you’ve beaten the habit.

Tip 3: The good, the bad and the ugly

After you complete your list of reasons you want to stop and how you’ll feel after you’ve finished, make a list of the consequences of not quitting. Have other smokers in your family got cancer? Have they died? Do they have to speak through a hole in their neck? Will you be unable to pay off debt because you’re always buying cigarettes? Whatever you consequences, be sure to list all of them. As above, be sure to list the consequences (good consequences, of course) of stopping. Keep them to look forward to.

Tip 4: Break time!

Most smokers agree: a cigarette is a break. When stopping, give yourself breaks, but do something. Go for a walk, eat a piece of fruit or drink some juice. That is critical because the body will be going through changes expelling all the accumulated poisons. The fruit will support this process in many ways.

Life now is worth living!
