Okay Smokers…You Can Do This! Here Are Some Tips For Quitting
After my smoking blog earlier in the week I heard from people who have kicked the habit. I thought you might be interested in reading their comments and suggestions.
- Go cold turkey. Just stop lighting up.
- Don't put pressure on yourself to quit. Just try to go one day without cigarettes.
- Tired of coughing, "I stared at the cigarette, crushed it, and never looked back."
- Try hypnotherapy
- Try acupuncture
- Use the nicotine patch. It helps with the cravings.
Other suggestions include quitting with a friend, doing stress management, finding a replacement activity when you get an urge to smoke. Please remember, I'm not a doctor. I'm just relaying suggestions from people who used to smoke and feel better now that they don't.
The American Cancer Society's website has a lot of good information that can help you break the habit.
.Good luck! You can do it!
