    • Introduction
      So many tips on how to stop smoking abound but not all of them work. Their efficacy depends a lot on the individual and the strength of their desire to kick the smoking habit. This article will expose 10 of the best tips on smoking cessation.
    • Tip No 1
      Believe in yourself. Trust in your ability to pull through your cease smoking goal. Look back at the many challenges you have surmounted in the past and trust your ability to quit smoking with determination and a steely resolve. This is really the heart of the matter as Henry Ford says, “if you think you can do it, or you think you can’t do it, you are right.”
    • Tip No 2
      Give yourself a strong reason to quit. You see, when you have a raison detre to quit, you are better equipped to say no to smoking. For instance, your own reason to quit could be to live long and see your children grow. This kind of reason is strong to make you quit finally.
    • Tip No 3
      Don’t just give yourself a strong reason to quit, please write it down. Put the benefits of your cease smoking goal into writing and read it every day. This helps you stay on track and endure the challenges that come with smoking cessation.
    • Tip No 4
      Make sure you smoke “your last cigarette” and make a big deal about it. Say, ‘this is my last cigarette. I am a non smoker.’ When you eventually decide to quit, have safeguards and support. Keep up your normal routines. Just omit the parts that include you lighting up.
      Tell just about everybody who knows you smoke that you are going to quit smoking. This reduces a situation whereby they hand you cigarettes when they are smoking. This also helps you stick to your resolve because you will see it as ungentlemanly (or unladylike) to go back on the words you have uttered out.
    • Tip No 5
      Get an accountability partner. Such a person could be your spouse, friend, mentor or an ex-smoker. Just someone you can share your progress with and if there are instances where you missed the track, he or she could put you back on track. An ex-smoker will really help you get back on track as he or she will empathize but also assure you that if he was successful, you can too.
    • Tip No 6
      Stay away from any social situation that you strongly connect with smoking at least until the physical cravings have worn off. This includes the company you used to keep when you were smoking so they won’t influence you back into the smoking habit. Start keeping the company of people who don’t smoke and you will find yourself forgetting the habit gradually. ‘Show me your friend and I will show you who you are’, so says the adage.
    • Tip No 7
      Get involved in sporting activities that will keep you busy during your leisure time because there is the possibility of your mind straying back to your smoking days when you are less busy but when you are occupied with sports, you won’t have time to think about and anytime you feel you feel the urge to smoke, I suggest you drink water or eat fruits. This works all the time.
    • Tip No 8
      Know that nicotine addiction is more psychological than physical. You need to change the positive association you hold towards cigarettes in your mind before you can stop smoking. Instead of seeing cigarettes as a stress-reliever, start seeing it as a dangerous chemical which can lead to untimely death.
    • Tip No 9
      Drink plenty of water and fresh fruit juices to flush the toxins out of your body. Another positive effect water has is that it can help cut down cravings by satisfying the “oral desires” that you could have.
    • Tip No 10
      If you do derail and have another smoke, get up, dust yourself and try again. Never give up on yourself.
