Most all smokers at one time or another try to quit smoking. However, their attempts mostly fail. This is because they either try to give up their habits by chewing gum, taking pills, or trying a potion or patch. The one thing that all smokers fail to realize is that they can only give up smoking with the right knowledge. Remember, knowledge is power and this power, when used correctly, can help you to succeed even in the most difficult situations.
People are addicted to nicotine only about 20% — the rest of the addiction is purely psychological. So the chemical affect of the drug is a lot lower than what you might think. Actually, each cigarette that you smoke gives you satisfaction through words and thoughts, getting you hooked to smoking. If you want to become a non-smoker, there is a simple way out. Learn to think like a non-smoker. It’s all there in the mind. Pills and quit smoking programs will make no difference until you make yourself realize that you must stick to your decision to be a non-smoker.
To quit smoking for life, you must first understand that nicotine addiction is a parasite that is slowly ending your life by eating into your mind and body. Imagine how free you will feel, getting up every morning and realizing that your day does not have to start with a cigarette and that you have finally become a non-smoker.
It Is Not Easy To Give Up
All of us know the ill effects of smoking. These effects have been explained time and again by our parents, friends, doctors, news media and anonymous well wishers. So why do you still smoke? Why have you not given up the habit even after knowing all the possible negative outcomes? The answer is simple. It is not easy to give up an addiction and smoking is an addiction that is hard to break.
You get used to having a cigarette at some particular time or particular place. Your hand automatically reaches into your pocket for the pack and lighter when you are at that particular place. Realizing that smoking is injurious to your health, being aware that you smell like smoke all day long and feeling the negative vibes that come your way may help to quit smoking. Think about what you are doing and why you are doing this to yourself and your loved ones. Smoking needs to be put aside. It does not do any good for you. Stop this addiction as soon as you can.
