RE:tips to quit smoking
hello friends,
here are few tips to quit smoking,,

1. Believe in yourself. Believe that you can quit. Think about
some of the most difficult things you have done in your life and
realize that you have the guts and determination to quit
smoking. It's up to you.

2. After reading this list, sit down and write your own list,
customized to your personality and way of doing things. Create
you own plan for quitting.

3. Write down why you want to quit (the benefits of quitting):
live longer, feel better, for your family, save money, smell
better, find a mate more easily, etc. You know what's bad about
smoking and you know what you'll get by quitting. Put it on
paper and read it daily.

4. Ask your family and friends to support your decision to quit.
Ask them to be completely supportive and non-judgmental. Let
them know ahead of time that you will probably be irritable and
even irrational while you withdraw from your smoking habit.

5. Set a quit date. Decide what day you will extinguish your
cigarettes forever. Write it down. Plan for it. Prepare your
mind for the "first day of the rest of your life". You might
even hold a small ceremony when you smoke you last cigarette, or
on the morning of the quit date.

6. Talk with your doctor about quitting. Support and guidance
from a physician is a proven way to better your chances to quit.

7. Begin an exercise program. Exercise is simply incompatible
with smoking. Exercise relieves stress and helps your body
recover from years of damage from cigarettes. If necessary,
start slow, with a short walk once or twice per day. Build up to
30 to 40 minutes of rigorous activity, 3 or 4 times per week.
Consult your physician before beginning any exercise program.

8. Do some deep breathing each day for 3 to 5 minutes. Breathe
in through your nose very slowly, hold the breath for a few
seconds, and exhale very slowly through your mouth. Try doing
your breathing with your eyes closed and go to step 9.

9. Visualize your way to becoming a non-smoker. While doing your
deep breathing in step 8, you can close your eyes and begin to
imagine yourself as a non-smoker. See yourself enjoying your
exercise in step 7. See yourself turning down a cigarette that
someone offers you. See yourself throwing all your cigarettes
away, and winning a gold medal for doing so. Develop your own
creative visualizations. Visualization works.

10. Cut back on cigarettes gradually (if you cut back gradually,
be sure to set a quit date on which you WILL quit). Ways to cut
back gradually include: plan how many cigarettes you will smoke
each day until your quit date, making the number you smoke
smaller each day; buy only one pack at a time; change brands so
you don't enjoy smoking as much; give your cigarettes to someone
else, so that you have to ask for them each time you want to
smoke.

thank you!!

Hey I don't think this tips work. Here is the best alternative to cigarette, its a E-cigarette. E-cigarette is the electric cigarette which is the best alternative to nicotine and is personally tasted and proved to be healthy. The Taste of this cigarette is same as ordinary cigarette but does not consist of harmful nicotine in it and is good for Health. I think this is only the best alternative to cigarette, or you can take as tips to quit smoking.

Make a Plan. You can’t just up and say, “I’m gonna quit today.” You have to prepare yourself. Plan it out. Have a system of rewards, a support system, a person to call if you’re in trouble. Write down what you’ll do when you get an urge. Print it out. Post it up on your wall, at home and at work. If you wait until you get the urge to figure out what you’re going to do, you’ve already lost. You have to be ready when those urges come.

I think if you want to quit smoking, you should just pray and see if that helps you stop.

Shackle their minds when they're bent on the cross
When ignorance reigns, life is lost

RE: RE:tips to quit smoking
why have people started smoking anyways? i understand the people who started at the times when tobacco was told to be a healt product, and later light-cigarettes were advertised as the cigarettes wich dont do any harm to your health.
but these young people who have all the information about smoking? so many of kids my age smoke, i would say at least 1 in 4 of kids my age smoke. some spend hours trying to get someone over 18 to buy them a pack of cigarettes with the only coins they have.
i have tried smoking, all the different colours and brands, none of them tasted good and my throat hurts when inhaling the smoke.

quoting one of my old basic school teacher: dont you think its pathetic that you knowingly make yourself addicted to a chemical and that one chemical makes you inhale smoke with all kind of poisons. one chemical is telling you what to do.

Correct me when I'm wrong.
Accept me or go to hell.

It's 100% mental. You should instead give people a guide on how to get your mind set on any objective.
Once you have the mental strength, quitting is not going to be a problem.

For the best mental training, join a special forces unit.

You don't get rich writing science fiction. If you want to get rich, you start a religion. - L. Ron Hubbard (Creater of Scientology)

RE: RE:tips to quit smoking
Chantix is one of these FDA-approved drugs that can be used for more smoking habits. It works on the body giving you the same feeling of success like smoking and reduces the need for nicotine. This medication should be used according to instructions from a physician who has different side effects, which can vary from person to person and includes a taste disturbance, insomnia and more. I smoked for over 10 years but now I use a smoke-free life from last two months. Thank you to Chantix In addition to this medication, you should also have the will and the feeling you want more of this habit.

RE: RE:tips to quit smoking
This is not an easy task. With an addiction comes a sort of "rewiring" of your brain. The longer you smoke, the more your mind will treat it as though it is essential, craving it as if it was food or water. In order to overcome something of that magnitude, you need to set very clear, very real goals It is not enough to say, "I'm quitting." Instead, set an exact day for yourself on which you will quit smoking, preferably not more than a week in the future, since you are already smoking so little.

RE: RE:tips to quit smoking
i've tried hypnosis, chantix, the patch, the blu e-cigarette and gum. the only thing that ever actually got me to quit was finding out i was pregnant. this doesn't work to well for men, of course. and of course, i started again a little over 2 years later. you have to want to quit to really quit. i quit every night when i smoke the last cigarette in my pack and tell myself i won't buy another. then the first thing i do in the morning is stop to buy a pack. if you have an addictive personality, it's even harder to quit. but it can be done if you put your mind to it and decide that you're done killing yourself. i haven't made that decision yet. but i know in my mind i can quit and i will when i'm good and ready.
