Specific <br />Measurable<br />Attainable<br />Realistic<br />Timely<br />Smart goal<br />
In my smart goal I want to be able to quit smoking and stay smoke free for ever<br />I have tried this before and failed, how ever I am hopeful I can do this by trying new techniques I have not tried before.<br />Specific<br />
So after knowing that, I don’t want to rush into anything to fast because I believe it wont happen if I rush it. I am going by a schedule to stay on point with my goal.<br />Specific<br />
To make my goal measurable I have been taking steps toward making a schedule to quit smoking. I am going to start by making a step by step routine that will start off slow and go to smoke free!<br />Measurable<br />
I know that this goal will be attainable this time.<br />I am mentally ready to stop smoking and am confident I will.<br />I am taking a new way of going at it by making a new schedule to achieve this<br />Attainable<br />
My goal is also realistic because my way of going about this time is different and I am not doing what I have tried in the past but more of thinking realistically of what I can do.<br />Realistic<br />
My schedule looks like this.<br />First week: only buy 3 packs that week, smoke them when ever (I'm at a bout 4 normally)<br />Week two: Only buy 2 packs but only smoke at night/with friends (this is when I want them most)<br />Week three: only buy one pack but try to only smoke 3 a day and if I can smoke less then that, crush my remaining cigarettes for that day.<br />Week four: buy one pack that will last me the next two weeks, and by this time the nicotine content in my body will have dropped and I want be needing cigarettes nearly as much.<br />Week five/six: be smoke free and if I do get cravings substitute them with chewing on a tooth pick, eating nuts (sunflower seeds), or chewing gun. Something to keep my hand and mouth active.<br />Realistic<br />
To complete my goal it will take me five to six weeks to completely quit. This may seem like a long time but in the past I tried to do it all in one week and this has never worked. I feel taking this much time will help me succeed greatly.<br />Timely<br />
I have started week one and it is going good so far.<br />I know I will be able to conquer week 2 after this first week and am confident in my schedule I made.<br />I can am excited to start to re live my life smoke free!<br />Process/Results/Assessment<br />
