Think about what you will have to face once you quit smoking. Many people relapse just a few weeks or months after quitting. It can be incredibly tempting to give into the urge for a cigarette if you are stressed or tired. Learn which triggers are especially threatening. If you absolutely must have a cigarette, using stalling tactics. Take a long walk, do the dishes or put away the laundry before permitting yourself to smoke. Sometimes, delaying smoking can help you resist smoking. If you do end up giving in anyway, at least that was a little longer that you were able to be smoke-free. Commitment is key to quitting smoking, so are you able to commit to never smoking again? You must answer yes to this question before you start quitting. A lot of people are unable to quit smoking successfully because they are not sufficiently committed, or do not approach it with the proper mindset. You may stay committed through thinking of the reasons why you want to quit.
You should plan on quitting at least three times. Try quitting cold turkey the first time around. Although this method gives you just a five percent chance of success, you could be in that group. The second time around, try to gradually decrease your smoking. If that doesn’t work, just go into your third attempt gung ho! Talk to your doctor about prescription treatment options and form a support group.
