Tips, Tricks to help you Quit Smoking.
There are many great products and prescriptions to help you quit smoking. They will help you too, however, you truly have to want to quit to succeed.In this article I will help you with triggers and what you can do if you experience one of your triggers.
I started smoking at the ripe old age of 14. I am now 48 and it has been 7 years since I quit. Here's how I did it. First, I I set about writing the times I smoked, what were my "triggers".I found I smoked at certain times,everyday. Okay now I know when I smoke. That makes it so much easier.
Then, I bought a box of patches, I didn't really have faith since I smoked OVER two packs a day. I knew I couldn't do it with out help.I have to give the patches credit , they work.
When one of my triggers came up, I had vegetables and ranch dressing. I had low calorie snacks, water,peanuts,things of that nature. I didn't want to gain the weight , I just wanted to quit smoking.
My triggers if you will, were talking on the phone, on the computer, driving, after eating. I would turn my attention away. For instance I make ornaments and I cross stitch. So instead of smoking, I would make an ornament or start a cross stitch project.
I carried low fat snacks. Drank lots of water.This will help prevent weight gain.
The diseases smoking brings are awful and the people that get these diseases really suffer. I watch my beloved father die from emphysema. trust me THAT'S an awful thing to watch, much less go through. Watching someone gasping for air is terrible.
Every time I looked and my son, I realized I can't let him watch me go through this. You can do it if you want. This is just how I did it and was successful. I want to pass along these tips, in the hopes they help someone at least smoke one cigarette less than the day before.
I hope this helps one person if not more, to quit before its too late. Good luck.
