The Positive things to do now that you have quit smoking

Congratulations! You did it! You have now completed the hardest step to quitting smoking. And now I must give you some tips to make it easier for you while going through withdraw. In the beginning of my article, I talked about the cigarettes taking advantage of the various things you like to do. Most people associate there cigarettes with Coffee, Alcohol or certain breaks throughout there workday. Most people who try to quit smoking never succeed because of the association of the cigarette to there daily habits. So lets think about that for one second. Why would you give up the things that you like to do because of that cigarette? Glad you asked it, because you don't have a good answer. This is key to quitting smoking cold turkey. You must continue to do the things that you like to do as if you never gave them up. Drink your coffee and alcohol. Take your daily breaks at work and most important laugh at the cigarettes that you used to smoke. The more grossed out you are with those cigarettes, the easier the withdraw will be to get over.
