To quit successfully, it is important to do it properly. You've taken a big step toward a healthier lifestyle. Now, prepare to quit for life. Consider these tips to help you in the quitting process:
It is difficult to quit smoking on your own. Talk to your doctor or pharmacist about support options.
Pick a date within the next two weeks; give you enough time to properly prepare to quit smoking.
Water will help you stay hydrated and cleanse inside the body, while maximizing your calorie burn.
Quitting smoking is easier when the people in your life support you. Let them know you are planning to quit and explain how they can help you quit.
Eating right replaces essential nutrients that are often deficient in a smoker..
Quitting smoking is hardest during the first few weeks. You will deal with uncomfortable feelings, temptations to smoke, withdrawal symptoms, and cigarette cravings. Anticipate these challenges and have a plan to overcome.
From Your Home, Car, and Work
You will be tempted to smoke during your quit attempt. Stay strong; you can do it. Removing things that remind you of smoking will get you ready to quit.
Physical exercise will help you detox from the harmful chemicals in cigarettes, and help reduce the urge to light up.
