Everyone knows smoking is not a healthy habbit. However stoping smoking is not an easy task. It is like that joke: Why everyone complains is hard to stop smoking? I did it so many times...Smile

But coming back to the reality is it difficult for someone who became adicted.

First thing first: stop smoking will give you a lot of benefits in your life style and health.

-You feel healthier right away. You will have more energy and better focus. Your senses of smell and taste will be better. You will have whiter teeth and fresher breath. You will cough less and breathe better.

-You will be healthier the rest of your life. You will lower my risk for cancer, heart attacks, strokes, early death, cataracts, and skin wrinkling.

-You will make my partner, friends, family, kids, grandchildren, and co-workers proud of you.

-You will no longer expose others to your second-hand smoke including family and friends.

-You will have a healthier baby. (If you or your partner is pregnant)

-You will have more money to spend.

-You won't have to worry: "When will I get to smoke next?" or "What do I do when I'm in a smoke-free place?"

Smoking habbits

The next step is to check when are you tempting to smoke.

- when feeling stressed

- when feeling down

- when talking on the phone

- when drinking liquor, like wine or beer

- when watching TV

- when driving

- after finishing a meal

- when playing cards

- while taking a work break

- when being with other smokers

- when drinking coffee

- when cooling off after a fight

- when feeling lonely

- after having sex

Did any of these look familiar? Just find yourself in one of the situation when you smoke and try to focus on that situatin or situations and put a stop of the habit. Instead try to replace the smoking habbit with healthy things like fruits or vegetables, juice or milk.

Stop thinking about smoking

When your body is asking for a cigarette, your mind may start to play tricks on you! Suddenly, it can be hard to think clearly—all of your good reasons for wanting to quit go up in smoke, and they are replaced by thoughts giving you permission to pick up that cigarette. There is no good reason to smoke. You know this. So if you are giving yourself a reason to smoke, you are probably experiencing an attack of smoky thinking.

Learning to recognize your smoky thinking is the key to beating it! Smoky thinking doesn’t have to ruin your quit attempt, as long as you are ready to fight back with clear thinking. Look at the list below. Have you ever had these thoughts? If so, you have been a victim of smoky thinking! But with practice, next time you can be ready with a clear thinking response.
