10 tips to quit smoking
  • Studies have shown that each year, over 80 of
    people who smoke in the United States say they
    wish to give up smoking. Of the 35 of people who
    actually try to quit unaided, barely 5 succeed
    in achieving this because products that contain
    nicotine are harmful and unproductive. However,
    there is a higher possibility of quitting smoking
    successfully using the Harmless Cigarette.
  • You ought not to embark on this journey without
    some kind of help. There are sites such as
    TobaccoFreeFlorida.com, SmokersHealthTips.com and
    QuitSmoking.com which feature designed
    initiatives as well as provide various resources
    that help you quit. In addition, these sites have
    a support group which comprises smokers and
    former smokers who care about helping each other
    accomplish their goal.
  • Top medical institutions suggest that the most
    important step in quitting smoking is to create a
    quit plan. Get a head start on your journey to
    quit smoking and ensure its a success. Below are
    ten tips to follow in creating a quit plan

  • 1. Strategically fix a quit date
  • Many smokers usually dont make plans for
    quitting, they just jump right in. It is
    recommended that you deliberately set a date to
    quit smoking. If you want to accomplish great
    things in life you must first plan for it. Peruse
    your calendar and decide on the best time to
    quit. Think about choosing a date that there
    aren't a lot of temptations like a birthday
    get-together or stressors such as looming
    deadlines.
  • 2. Identify triggers and keep track of cigarettes
  • Similar to tracking your activity with a step
    counter when trying to lose some weight or keep
    fit, discovering what drives you to smoke is all
    part of the quit plan. These are called
    'Triggers' and they are the things that prompt
    you to smoke. Some common triggers include
    stress, driving, coffee, drinking, or partying.

  • 3. Control your triggers
  • Having identified the things that make you smoke,
    the next step is to plan on how to steer clear of
    or conquer them. Are you the type that smokes
    while driving to work? You should endeavor to
    keep sunflower seeds in your car to chew on as a
    substitute. Alternatively, you could create a
    playlist to sing along with loudly. You should
    give serious thoughts on the things you are able
    to do in place of smoking for each of your
    triggers such as drink tea rather than coffee for
    awhile, etc.

  • 4. Be smart about your addiction
  • Smoking is not just an awful habit, it's an
    addiction. Study how nicotine affects your brain
    and wisely decide to use quit smoking aids to
    enhance your likelihood of successfully quitting.
    Watch videos on SmokersHealthTips.com to learn
    more.

  • 5. Select a quit smoking aid
  • The moment youve learnt about addiction and how
    it works, consult with your doctor or pharmacist
    or healthcare provider on the various quit
    smoking aids and decide on what works best for
    you. A Natural Quit smoking aid Harmless
    Cigarette is capable of easing quitting
    withdrawal and cravings. It doesnt matter if you
    have attempted using medications before, give
    Harmless Cigarette a trial as your chances of
    quitting smoking successfully now is much better.
  • 6. Talk to someone
  • Youve probably heard the saying that a problem
    shared is a problem half solved. Think about
    confiding in someone you trust. It could be a
    friend, or relative or even a colleague at least.
    If they smoke as well, you could ask them to stop
    smoking around you. Another option is to connect
    with people that understand your situation in the
    SmokersHealthTips Community. They know what it
    feels like to be irritable, frustrated and
    anxious while quitting. There are always smokers
    and former smokers available on SmokersHealthTips
    community genuinely willing to help answer any
    questions you may have, listen supportively and
    cheer you on your success.

  • 7. Out with the old and in with the new
  • When trying to forget an 'old flame', the first
    thing you need to do is dispose of any and
    everything that reminds you of that thing. Search
    your car, house, place of work and discard
    anything remotely connected to smoking. Ashtrays,
    lighters, even your car's dashboard lighter.
    Throw out everything! Think about getting your
    car detailed, wash your clothing and bedspread,
    do a thorough cleaning of your residence to let
    everything about you smell fresh rather than
    smoky.
  • 8. Get ready, get set
  • Ensure you have enough medication handy if you're
    using one. Prime yourself to stop by having other
    good approach of managing cravings. Get a water
    bottle that is refillable buy stuff you can chew
    on like sugar free gum and candy, toothpicks,
    carrot sticks and find something fun to engage
    your hands with like drumsticks or toys. Stay
    motivated. List out your reasons for quitting and
    keep in your purse, wallet, bathroom mirror, car,
    office, everywhere you can see it.

  • 9. Go
  • You know the times you're likely to be tempted
    and how to overcome the temptations when they
    come. Get up and face the day head on. Put on
    some clothes, grab your water bottle, some food
    and your Harmless Cigarette or other quit smoking
    aid and hit the road! Just concentrate on getting
    through the first day without smoking. You can
    survive your first day and then take it one day
    at a time.
  • 10. If you need to, pick yourself back up
  • It is hard to quit a habit and you may need to
    try over and over again before succeeding. If you
    slipped and smoked the after your quit day, dont
    give up! Discover what led to your slipping in
    the first instance. Were you having a drink?
    Under a lot of stress? Or someone offered you a
    cigarette? Identify the cause and plan on how to
    get past it when next it occurs. If you need
    support, commiseration, wisdom or encouragement,
    go see the Smokers Health Tips Community.
