Tips for Stopping Smoking

Smoking is highly addictive

Many people start smoking when they are young and most usually in their teens. This is often a response to peer group pressure or in the misguided attempt to cultivate a particular image.

Smoking is dangerous and harmful

Smoking is the leading preventable cause of premature death and illness around the world. Its harmful effects take hold from the very first cigarette you smoke.

The fact that many smoking related illnesses and diseases take time to develop and show up makes this fact initially hard to take on board, nevertheless it is true.

Quitting smoking will improve your health

This is a fact and one that comes true from the very first day your quit. No matter how much damage you think you may have caused yourself by smoking if you stop now you will prevent more damage and see an improvement in your overall well being.

Commit yourself to being a non-smoker

Once you've made up your mind to be a non-smoker for yourself, you will achieve it.

Don't rely on willpower

Either you have or you don't have a strong enough reason to quit. Once you have a strong enough reason everything else about the quit will be easier.

Prepare to stop

Break the process of stopping into manageable parts:

  • Nicotine withdrawal
  • Breaking you habit, and
  • Coping with your new identity as a non-smoker

Understand each part and prepare a plan of strategies and distractions to help you cope with each of these areas. Once you have done that:

  • Get as much support as you can from family, friends, colleagues, helplines, support groups, your doctor, the Internet or whatever suits you most.
  • Ask you doctor or pharmacist about smoking cessation products, such as Nicotine Replacement Therapies, and be prepared to use them.
  • Set a date for quitting and then stick to it.

Stop and stay stopped

Be ready and prepared for problems that may crop up and have coping strategies planned for dealing with them that suit your needs.

Use medical support if you need it and remember to take one day at a time.

If you don't succeed

Try again and again and again if necessary. Eventually you will manage to quit.

Good Luck!
