How To Quit Smoking

Prepare yourself
You don't have to stop immediately, but set a date for quitting. Choose a time when you will not have much stress in your life. Get rid of ashtrays, lighters, cups or spit before leaving. Do not let people smoke in your home.

Change to brand that you find unpleasant
Change to a brand that is low in tar and nicotine a few weeks before the deadline. This will change your smoking behavior. However, do not smoke more cigarettes, inhale more often or more deeply, or place your hand over the holes in the filters. All these will increase your intake of nicotine, and the idea is to get your body to function without nicotine

Reducing the number of cigarettes that you smoke
  • Each day, delay lighting your first cigarette 1 hour.
  • Decide you only smoke during or even odd hours of the day.
  • Decide in advance how many cigarettes you smoke during the day. For each cigarette, give a dollar to your charity :)
  • Smoke only half of each cigarette.
  • Remember: Cutting down can help you, but this is not a substitute for quitting. If you are about seven cigarettes a day, it is time to put your date and get ready to take.

Change your routine
Change your eating habits to help you reduce them. For example, drink milk, which many people consider incompatible with smoking. End meals or snacks with something that will not lead to a cigarette.

Do not smoke "Automatically"
  • Smoke cigarettes that you really want. Catch yourself before lighting a cigarette.
  • Put yourself aware of each cigarette using hand or putting cigarettes in an unknown location or another pocket to break the automatic reach.
  • Do not empty your ashtrays. This will remind you how many cigarettes you've smoked each day and the sight and smell of cigarette butts will be very unpleasant.
  • If you light many times during the day without even thinking about it, try to look in a mirror whenever you put a match to your cigarette - May you decide that you don't need it.
  • Stop carrying cigarettes with you at home and at work. Make them difficult to get to.
  • Stop buying cigarettes by the carton. Wait until a package is empty before buying another.

Make smoking unpleasant
  • Collect all you cigarette butts in one large glass container as a visual reminder of the filth smoking represents.
  • Smoke only under circumstances that aren't especially pleasurable for you. If you like to smoke with others, smoke alone. Turn your chair toward an empty corner and focus only on the cigarette you are smoking and its many negative effects.

Stop Smoking!!!
  • Throw away all your cigarettes and matches. Hide your lighters and ashtrays.
  • Tell yourself you won't smoke today, and then don't.
  • Don't think of NEVER smoking again. Think of quitting in terms of 1 day at a time.
  • Keep busy!!!
  • Clean your clothes to rid them of the cigarette smell.
  • Remind your family and friends, ask them to help you over the rough spots of the first couple of days and weeks.
  • Make a list of things you'd like to buy for yourself or someone else. Estimate the cost in terms of packs of cigarettes, and put the money aside to buy these presents.
  • Drink large quantities of water and fruit juice.
  • Try to avoid alcohol, coffee, sodas that contain caffeine, and other beverages that you associate with cigarette smoking.

Use medicine
It can help with appetite and stress. You can buy nicotine gum, lozenges, or patches without a prescription. Your doctor may also give you medicines such as bupropion (Zyban) or varenicline (Chantix). Using products nicotine replacement and / or medicine doubles your chances of quitting smoking for good.

Get help.
Ask your family, friends, doctor and help you. Stopping smoking is difficult, but if you have help and a plan, it is much easier.
