How to Quit Smoking

Updated on November 5, 2012

Quit Smoking Right Now

Smoking is a deadly habit that kills millions of people every year. Many more are affected by smoking related deceases. Although there is growing awareness on the dangers of smoking, many people still continue to smoke. So many programs are out there designed to help quit smoking. But the first thing that is needed to quit smoking is a deep desire to quit. Seeking medical help and joining support groups will considerably increase your chances of success. If you are a smoker you should quit right now!

Quit Smoking Programs

There are so many methods and plans that are available to help smokers quit. Nicotine gums, nicotine patches, smokeless tobacco, herbal remedies, prescription drugs, hypnosis and acupuncture etc., to name a few. How far they will be successful depends on the person who wants to quit!

How To Quit Smoking

Last year I lost someone in the family to lung cancer which was caused by excessive smoking. But then he must have been smoking for around twenty or so years. I don't remember him without his favorite cigarettes in his hand. I think he tried to quit a few times. But never really succeeded. When I saw gamergirl's request, I wanted to do a hub on how to quit smoking.

Although I am not an expert or qualified to give advice on how to stop smoking, I compiled these videos with the hope that someone will actuallystop smokingafter watching them. In fact it will be nice to know if these quit smoking videos really helped. Please note that this is not a substitute for professional medical advice. It will be best if you consult your doctor before going for anything included in this article.

How to Make a User Quit Smoking Cigarettes

"This video focuses on the persuasion theme of how to stop a person from engaging in a negative behavior, like smoking cigarettes. In a nutshell, the one-two punch that anti-cigarette companies have created is to first change a user's motivation by using satire, then follow up with persuasive programs that aim to facilitate the quitting process."

Quit Smoking Using Acupuncture & Chinese Medicine

Quit Smoking Using Acupuncture & Chinese Medicine

"Acupuncture will not "do it" for you. You need to have a genuine desire to quit smoking. It's very important to enlist the support of friends and family. Everyone will respond to acupuncture and quitting smoking differently. Some may sail through the process with little or no problems, while others may have a harder time with withdrawal. Be assured that acupuncture can reduce the stress and difficulty of quitting smoking, and can aid you in your decision to quit smoking."

      Excellent for two reasons - the topic is always perfect and you give a lot of good information.

      There is another method that you did not mention. It is EFT. I am not an EFT counselor so can't help with helping quite the smoking habit, but I do know it is very effective and easy. In fact I wish I had known about it when I quite smoking many years ago.

      Great idea for a hub page, sure it will do well for you. I have tried different methods of quitting and, though I have cut down a lot have not managed to completely stop. I think (hope) I will get there before my number is up.

      I have never tried videos, have listened to audio stuff that was quite good... but ultimately its a hard habit to break and there are no easy answers...

      I have heard nothing but good things in regards to Acupuncture & Chinese Medicine especially for stopping smoking. I have a friend that quit smoking with Acupuncture. This is a great hub; I did not know there were that many ways to help someone kick the habit.

      This is a really informative hub. You have done so much work pointing out different reasons and ways to quit.

      I wish I could get this through to my son. We have tried all things. But like you say they have to want to do it for them. We cannot make that decidion for him.
