Tips And Tricks To Quit Smoking For Good

Every smoker has tried to quit at one time or another and have found that it can be very difficult. You can increase your chances of being successful by having support and having tricks in place to help you when you need it. 

Use the tips below to create a solid plan for your battle against smoking.



When you smoke, you sometimes are just obsessed with the feeling of having something in your mouth. This can be replaced with a less dangerous habit such as chewing gum or eating candy. Anytime you feel like smoking, just have a piece of hard candy or chew a stick of gum.

TIP! If you get the urge to light up, try using a delay tactic. Tell yourself to wait five or ten minutes when you feel the urge to smoke.

Keep a cold glass or bottle of ice water nearby at all times. When you get a craving for a cigarette, take a sip of water--even if this means you hardly put the bottle down at first. This gives you something to do with your hands and mouth, and it can be a useful way to prevent snacking, too.


TIP! Talk with your doctor if you are having difficulties kicking your smoking habit on your own. These days there are many medications that can help to ease your efforts to quit smoking.

Don't Go Cold Turkey


Do not quit cold turkey. It can be tempting to throw out your cigarettes and say, "I quit!" But cold turkey is not the way you want to go. Studies show that over ninety percent of people who try to quit smoking with no medication or therapy end up relapsing. The reason for this is because nicotine is addictive and your brain craves it. Without it, nicotine withdrawal symptoms set in.

Commit yourself totally to your decision to quit smoking. If you are determined to quit smoking then put your whole soul into the effort. Announce to family and close friends that you are quitting and need support. Write down your specific goals and make them as detailed as you can. Also write down your individual reasons for quitting. Post both lists where you can easily see them - like the bathroom mirror. Join a support group and attend meetings, whether online or in person. Go all in and make this happen.

TIP! One of the hardest things to deal with when quitting smoking is the oral fixation. Once you give up cigarettes, consider carrying sugar-free candies, cough drops or coffee stirrers around to keep your mouth busy and keep you mind off of cigarettes.

One of the benefits of quitting smoking is improving the health of your family. They are probably exposed to your secondhand smoke, and this can cause breathing and health problems. When you quit smoking, you decrease the amount of time that your loved ones are exposed to that dangerous second hand smoke. The benefits of stopping smoking will also be shared by the people with whom you live.

If you're a smoker who lights up more in social situations, plan ways to not join your friends for a cigarette when you're out. While dining, stay at the table if your friends go outside for to smoke. If you're at a party, if people are smoking, find a non-smoker to chat with. Finding ways to not be around smokers will make it easier for you to quit.

TIP! Find ways to keep your body and mind busy when you quit smoking. Take up walking as this will also help you get in better shape.

It is true that most smokers have tried to quit and have failed at least once. There are many reasons for their failure but you can greatly increase your odds for success by learning from others and using tips like the ones in the above article to stay on track and finally achieve success and be a non-smoker at last.
