Are YOU still smoking?
The drug called nicotine can be found in any cigarette you want and this drug is a very powerful one. It is very addictive and quitting it can be done only by will. It is hard, but it isn’t impossible.
Are you quitting?
Well, if you tried to quit and you just couldn’t, it means you either didn’t really want to or you didn’t know how to proceed.
Here’s a few tips to help you achieve this goal. Good luck, and remember, the most important thing is WILL.
- Decide upon a day, and just stop smoking. The best way to do it is to find someone to quit with you. As the old saying goes: The more the merrier.
- When you get the urge of smoking, don’t. Wait for a few minutes before. In the spare time, try to do other things, like eating peanuts or eating gum.
- The old switch trick always pays off. Switch to a brand of cigarettes you hate and buy just one pack at a time.
- Change your routines. When you eat dinner, don’t sit in the same place.
- Always have with you other things to put in your mouth, like a toothpick, or candy (watch for those cavities), or, usually the best, bubble-gum.
- At first you will feel sleepier and more tired than usual. Also you will be more short-tempered. These things pass in a week or so.
- Talk about what you are doing. Many smokers want to know how it is possible. Explain to them; discuss it over a drink, in the non-smokers section, of course.
- If at first you fail, try again. Don’t worry, there are fewer people then you think who made it the first time.
- If nothing works, visit your doctor.
