Tips To Quit Smoking

Nowadays, it has become a normal thing to do amongst children and is growing increasingly common at a very alarming rate. However, where there is a will, there is a way. Quitting smoking may be very difficult but it is not impossible. If one thinks about it and genuinely wants to quit, he or she can do so if they exercise their will power to achieve it. There are also tips and tricks involved and methods that can help you towards your goal because in all honesty, you are going to need all the help you can get. Nicotine is very addictive and can be hard to let go of.

Understand Why You Have To Quit Smoking Any human being will not really ever get rid of a habit until and unless they see the bad behind it or what harm it is causing them. Even then if a person is addicted, there is a slight chance that might not work. However, there is no harm in trying this method. One of the biggest tips to quit smoking is to understand why you should quit in the first place. There are many articles and many videos which explain the dangers of smoking and how easily it can cause lung cancer. Pictures of blackened lungs can also cause an effect unlike any other and designs of machines to show just how much substance is being accumulated in the lungs on a daily basis just because of a few cigarettes. Somewhere in between all the warnings, pictures and information, something just might click and one can stop smoking. An uncle, once a chronic smoker, quit immediately after seeing his brother die and suffer from lung cancer. Awareness does help.

Think Of The Damage It Causes Others If you think about those whom you care about and how smoking could endanger them, it would make you want to quit if nothing else and wanting to quit generally leads to quitting overall eventually. Many a time friends and family members become passive smokers and it is a danger to their health as well. If young children see you smoke in the household, maybe they could adopt the habit later in life as well and no one wants that, even the person who is smoking! Thinking of the damage you are not only causing yourself but others as well might lead you to quitting. Don’t block your mind when you think about stuff like this, think about it more so that your thoughts produce some actions as well against smoking.

Nicotine Patches The substance in cigarettes called nicotine is the most addictive of all substances and is particularly hardest to let go of. There are nicotine patches available which keep releasing a controlled amount of nicotine into your body so that you are able to resist your addiction to having a smoke to relieve your withdrawal symptoms that you must be facing. Nicotine patches have proven to be quite helpful to those who have tried to quit smoking and has proved successful on many accounts.

Don’t Let Go All At Once You’re only human. Although if you can, it would be best to leave the habit altogether but there are very few people who can achieve that. The best possible method is to start reducing the number of smokes you have per day and then take it to a week’s time and then perhaps a month’s time till you don’t feel the need to smoke anymore. Letting it go all at once will only increase your withdrawal symptoms and maybe take you to relapse and you might even feel disheartened or demotivated after that which could cause further trouble. Try to reduce the habit to let it go at first and then fight it off when you are not dependent on it anymore.

Stay Away From Triggers Many people love the combination of alcohol and a cigarette so best to get rid of both habits because one instigates the other. Any other thing that might trigger your need to smoke has to go! Try to concentrate on other stuff that you can do such as maybe clean the house or go for a swim, something that makes you healthier and gives you a rush.

Conclusion Quitting smoking is hard, as told above, but one can do it if they put their mind to it. It is not unheard of to quit smoking, in fact, there are many success stories roaming about and they all start with a pretty good motivational factor. Keep yourself motivated and you will eventually find yourself rid of this addictive and harmful habit.
