Your family thinks it would be in your best interest to quit smoking. Your doctor has also advised you to stop smoking. You will also find that your insurance provider will offer a discount for quitting. So, why haven’t you done it yet? Time to stop and use these tips to quit the habit without another thought.
One aid to help you in quitting is to make a list of reasons why you should quit smoking, and also the reasons why you resist quitting. When you write something down, it can work to adjust your frame of mind. By making this list, you can spark your interest and motivation in quitting, and help you focus on quitting so that you can more easily stop smoking.
Be open and let people know about your goal to quit smoking. Entrusting familiar people with this information can let them motivate you, along with helping you beat temptations. This support and responsibility can bolster your effort to quit smoking for good.
Get lots of rest when you are trying to stop smoking. When you keep later nights, you become vulnerable to giving in to your cigarette cravings. There are not people around late at night, this will make it easy for you to sneak a smoke. Sleeping eight hours each night will make it easier to focus and control nicotine cravings.
If you get the urge to light up, try using a delay tactic. With the delay tactic, you tell yourself that you will have a smoke in just ten minutes and go do something else. After those ten minutes are up, distract yourself with something else. Generally, a 10 minute delay will be all you need to get over the urge to smoke. If you still do crave a cigarette, continuing using this tactic until it finally works.
You now have all of the information you will need in order to get started saying goodbye to smoking forever. Once you are a non-smoker, you’ll enjoy better health, increased mood, and a longer lifespan. As you get past the worst of quitting and can see the light, go celebrate! You deserve it!
