How to quit smoking
To quit smoking is as easy as taking these three steps: check the smoking habits and decide never to smoke again, try to use anything instead of cigarettes on the lips, and try to eat low calorie food and drinks.
First of all check your smoking habits. Write down the times you smoke in a 24 hour period; such as, smoking when you are having a meal, or after a work day, etc. It will take you two to three weeks to think about when and why you need to smoke, so that you will put more attention on each cigarette. This will help you get ready to quit. After that, you should never go back to smoking. Write down all the reasons why you will quit smoking including the benefits. For example, quitting will make you enjoy the taste of food more and no longer cough in the morning. You should make yourself believe that quitting is worth doing before you do it.
Secondly, you can try to use anything instead of cigarettes in the first period of quitting. You can take a piece of gum when you want to smoke, or hold a pencil instead of cigarettes in your fingers.
Lastly, try to have lower calorie food and drinks in the early weeks of quitting. Your appetite will increase when you quit an addictive habit. You will always want to find something to eat, so your weight may increase a few pounds. Eating low calorie food will help you solve this problem.
In conclusion, checking the smoking habits and deciding never smoke again, trying to use anything instead of cigarettes on the lips, and trying to have low calorie food and drinks are good ways to quit smoking. In addition, you can enjoy the fun of quitting. If you do not smoke, you can save so much money. You can use the money you saved on cigarettes to buy a reward for yourself which you could not afford to buy before.
