How To Quit Smoking

December 25th, 2010  |  Published in Health, TIPS

1 Chart a plan: Set a date to quit smoking and get rid of cigarettes and ashtrays at home and work. Especially try to avoid people when they are smoking.

2 Keep trying: Think about what worked and what didn’t in your previous attempts. If you are unable to quit in the first attempt, try again.

3 Meal wise: Eat meals regularly and drink plenty of fluids. Hunger and thirst are sometimes mistaken for the desire to smoke.

4 Money matters: Think about the benefits of not smoking. Start a money jar with the money you save by not buying cigarettes.

5 Gum help: Nicotine withdrawal may make you restless and irritable, so remind your-self the mood changes are temporary. Use aids such as nicotine patches and gum.
