Many people even had attempted to stop smoking forever but for some reasons, they failed.
Smoking is easy to learn but hard to unlearn. For die-hard smokers, hitting the brake is a big challenge for the following reasons:
– they crave for more nicotine
– they become more irritable
-they suffer from poor concentration
– & they often feel hungry.
However, if someone is really committed to quit, he’ll do everything to fulfill his goal.
Today is always the best time to start a healthier life. Isn’t it?
Here are some of the helpful tips proven to be effective.
Replace nicotine.- Patches or chewing gum relieves the withdrawal symptoms and double’s a smoker’s chance of successfully quitting.
Never say never. – The average smoker stops smoking and starts again four times before finally quitting: attempts to give up the habit should not be abandoned because of one failure.
Relax and refrain from alcoholic drinks. – About three-quarters of smokers who stop and start again do so either because of stress or active involvement in social occasions, especially those that involve alcohol.
Establish barriers. – Banning smoking in work areas and recreation rooms can help smokers who are trying to quit and relapse.
