Exercise and quit smoking cigarettes

I used to be a smoker..... Yes I know I know but I was young and foolish. But the really silly thing is that in Poland in the Winter it can often get to bellow minus 20 but that still would not stop me from going out in the cold to the local garage in the middle of the night just to buy some cigarettes . Or the fact that you know that it is not healthy there is even warning on the package but this still does not stop you from smoking it doesn't make sense does it? If you are a smoker or have been you will know what I am talking about.

All the tips for giving up smoking will not work unless you change one fundimental thing in your thinking. You see it is almost impossible to get anyone to do anything.... Unless they want to. Think about that for the moment. All the top sales people know that no matter how good they are people will not buy unless they want to. Sure the good sales person will create a mood, setting, conditions, paint a picture to pursuade someone however at the end of the day that person will only do something is they want to and this is where you have to start to start to stop smoking. A decision, your decision to give up smoking and really mean it.

After you give up you need distractions, distractions right at the time you crave a ciggarette. My favorite TV ad was a picture of a man at the sink washing up after dinner. He then lifts his hand in the air to show he is wearing a pair of wet yellow rubber gloves. His comment is "I can't smoke with these on". He distracted him self just after dinner when his craving started by doing the washing up. Bellow is an article I came across that had a simmilar theme but related to Exercise which I thought would be usefull for anyone who want to give up or knows a friend that would like to give up.

      I 100% agree. You have to make the decision and agree with yourself to do what ever it takes to get to the goal. Then all the other things are as you correctly say support. The funny thing is I used to think I was making a decision to quit every new year and a month or two later would be smoking again.

      I now know that it isn't untill inside the decision is made was I able to actually put into practice the other. Thanks for your post Me Hubber !
