Why quitting smoking

  1. 1. ==== ====How i quit smoking. You too can quit now.http://www.howcaniquitsmoking.info==== ====Although every former smoker has their own unique story on how they quit smoking, there aresome tried and true how to quit smoking methods that have worked well over the years. Dont puttoo much pressure on yourself, you can always try out different methods and work your way ontotelling your own how to quit smoking story.*Try smoking fewer cigarettes than usual. For many smokers, holding out few hours withoutsmoking can prove very difficult. Familiarize yourself with the sensation and understand howdifficult it can be. I know what you are saying, "Why the practice run for the suffering". Somesmokers get very panicky when they first experience a serious withdrawal symptom. Its much likedipping your toe in the pool before jumping in. You do not want to be discouraged to a point whereyou cant even imagine yourself ever quitting smoking.*Skip the entire morning smoking session. Experience what happens when you dont jump startyour day with your nicotine fix. This is different from just holding out few hours without smoking.Youll try to spend an entire morning without smoking a single cigarette. With enough patience onyour part, by noon when you are about to finally light one up, you will notice a few things. First itsthe ups and downs of the craving. The withdrawal symptom is not constant and there will be longperiods, a whole chunk of minutes that go by when you dont really feel much craving. This wastrue for many former smokers Ive interviewed and it was true for me as well. You have to try thisin the morning because otherwise its no different from the method above. I encourage you to trythis because many former smokers will attest to the fact that on your quit day, you have to makesure you start the day clean without a smoke. By the way, when you give up smoking for good,you will inevitably experience these mornings.*For some, postponing smoking half an hour to an hour every time craving hits works wonders.Again its a similar method to the two above but its very different in its approach. This method isused to strategically cut down on the number of cigarettes you smoke in a day but in a verygradual manner. Reducing the number of cigarettes smoked per day will undoubtedly be helpful inquitting smoking. The general rule of thumb is the less you smoke per day, the less severewithdrawal symptoms you will have. Remember, if you know you are not a particularly patientperson. You do not want to try this method.*Stop smoking aid products do work, you just have to work with them. There isnt a stop smokingproduct thats suitable for every smoker in the world. While a particular product may work better forJoe no.1, Jo no.2 might just do better with a different product. The recurring cost of using stopsmoking products should be less than the cost of maintaining most smokers addiction. Thats noteven counting the fact that once you quit you no longer need buy additional stop smokingproducts, but you will keep smoking as long as you are still an addict. You have to understand thatstop smoking products are meant to aid you in combating nicotine addiction. They are not
  2. 2. automatic fix it all products and they dont claim to be it. Its useless unless used as intended. Soyou might be wondering, "Since I do all the work, why would I even bother with these products".The answer to that its simple. You can run miles without sneakers, but that doesnt mean you doit. You can run faster and safer if you just put on a sneaker, so we choose to run with our sneakerson. Stop smoking aids can make smoking cessation experience anywhere from easy to tolerablefor many smokers. As withdrawal symptoms can last days to even weeks, you can make thequality of your life substantially better than going cold turkey.*Convince a buddy to quit smoking with you, anyone in your life who smoke can participate.Having a quit partner can trigger either camaraderie or competitiveness and either one can bebeneficial in quitting smoking. If you dont know anyone who smokes, make a wager with a friendon that you can quit. Tell everyone you know you are quitting, their support and the responsibilitythat comes with your announcement will help you keep your word and stay cigarette free.*Dont set a quit day, rather quit on the day that cigarette taste particularly nasty. Every smokerundoubtedly has these days when cigarette taste awful. Of course following this advice alone mostlikely wont make you quit, but you could combine different strategies together. For example, youstart by cutting down on the cigarettes you smoke. Tell everyone you know you are quitting and gograb a nicotine gum at your local pharmacy. Wait until "the day" comes, it should be easy enough.As former smoker I know smokers live through nasty cigarette tasting days at least a couple oftimes a month. Just use it as another arsenal to combat your nicotine dependency, its as simpleas that.*Stop buying cigarettes by the carton or have spares at home. Force yourself to buy a new packevery time you run out of cigarettes making smoking very inconvenient for yourself. Smokers tendto smoke more than usual when they know they have stocked extra cigarettes through the roof.*Ask your smoker friends to avoid smoking around you. If your friends object to the idea, try to stayaway from them for about a month. It is imperative that you do not linger near cigarette smokesbecause for most people quitting smoking is hard enough as is.*Avoid drinking at all cost. Many smokers cant resist to light one up with a cold one. You do notneed to quit drinking forever, but try to avoid alcoholic beverages for two weeks. If you insist ondrinking wine, beer, or whatever you are into, dont drink them at bars and drink less than younormally would.*Throw away all your smoking gear. From lighters to ashtrays, also those matches you have instock in case your lighter decides to give. Get rid of everything that has anything to do with aidingyour smoking habit.For most smokers, quitting smoking will not come down to a single action enabling them to quit. Ingeneral, its the combination of strategies and their persistence that will end the addiction. Makethe most out of all the information on how to quitting smoking and do not give up even if you fail onyour first attempt. It does not matter how many attempts it takes, all it matters is that you quitsmoking. Good luck.
