Quit Smoking – Possible or Not?

Quit Smoking – Possible or Not?

Average smokers get addicted to this habit over an extended period. Quitting will be a great achievement on the part of smoker, because giving up something, or even cutting back from something like cigarette is often difficult. And if somebody is so determined to make this habit such a person should be congratulated and celebrated.

Though it is difficult to give up this habit or any of such bad habits, it is possible if you are serious about it. You must believe in yourself that you can quit if any other addicted person can quit. Once you make up your mind to embark on this life-changing task you must establish a goal – a specific date. Make it realistic so that you do not quit too soon.

Write out a plan you believe is suitable for your personality. You can look at various applicable methods online. Once you have a plan you need to establish a reason you should quit smoking. Write down the reason. It is especially important. Just like most kids will hardly agree to accept a task without knowing what it will benefit them at first. If you have enough reason, you will surely give it time and dedication needed. Some of the benefits you need to consider are long life, healthy body, feeling better, saving money, among others.

To achieve your goal on a specific date, you will have to seek the support of your doctor. In fact, you will certainly get the support and guidance of your doctor. Doctors will advise you on what you can take to replace the effect of nicotine in most cigarettes. They will advise on type of exercise program that is suitable for you. This will help you recover from years of damage from nicotine in cigarettes. Support of your friends and family will be helpful too if you make your goal known to them.

Quit Smoking by Preparing Yourself

It is a well-known fact that smoking is highly addictive, and many smokers have an exceedingly tough time quitting. Besides the physical component of the addiction, there is also a psychological one: smoking is socially acceptable in many situations, and, of course, entirely legal.

For these reasons it can be doubly difficult to quit smoking, especially if you have friends who smoke, or you regularly go to places that you associate with smoking. One of the first things you should do when attempting to quit smoking is to prepare yourself. Quitting does not begin with merely stopping one day – you should prepare yourself in advance to ensure success.

The psychological element of your smoking addiction has a lot to do with daily habits. The reason that smoking can become so difficult to quit is because the act entrenches itself into your daily life and routines, to the point where you give it little thought. Before they start to seriously think about quitting, most smokers will agree that smoking is simply something they do – it is not something they are particularly aware of on a day-to-day level.

Another good example of this is to make the following rule for yourself: when you smoke, you are not allowed to do anything else. So, for example: no smoking while reading, no smoking while using the computer, etc. Force yourself to do nothing but sit and think about cigarettes when you smoke. This exercise will serve two functions: first, it will make you think about smoking much more, and ideally about how you are going to quit smoking; and second, depending on how much you smoke, it will make you aware of the time you waste doing it.

For most people, the habit will seem much more severe – and thus there will be much more motivation to stop – when you add up all the minutes spent doing it.

To quit smoking is a serious undertaking, and you want to do everything in your power to ensure a high chance of success. Too many smokers simply try and quit cold turkey, and while this can be effective for some people, for most it does not work, and when you fail it will become harder to work up the morale to try again.

By thinking of your plan to quit smoking as a long term one, you do yourself a lot of favors. So, remember that the act of quitting smoking begins long before you stub out the final cigarette: you should prepare yourself for weeks beforehand by making abrupt changes in your smoking habits.
