How to Quit Smoking

Quit smoking once and for all! You can do it!

MIND CONTROL - Tell yourself that you can have a cigarette, but you do not want to have one right now. Carry a pack of cigarettes with you in your pocket or purse. You may need to do this for up to one year or until you are comfortable that you will never smoke again.

SET YOURSELF UP FOR SUCCESS - Research and use a nicotine craving reducer such as a patch or gum. This will help with your cravings. Slowly reduce use as recommended by manufacturer.

USE LOW CALORIE DISTRACTORS - Chewing gum is an excellent way to distract yourself from smoking. You may also want to brush your teeth often. Low calorie, healthy snacking can help, try baby carrots, etc.

REMOVE SMOKE ODOR - Wash all your clothing and bedding. Air out your car and home. You will need to rid all areas of smoke smell.

AVOID SMOKING FRIENDS - Absolutely do not try to hang out with friends or family members that smoke. Surround yourself with non smokers.
