Without internal improvements, smokers won’t be able to stop their tobacco addiction. Their first and most important step is to believe in themselves. They should have a strong determination to stop smoking. After being determined to change their situation, smokers need to compose a list and tailor it based on the situation and personality. Smokers may make their own stop-smoking program. It is a good idea to write down the benefits of stop smoking and drawbacks of continuing smoking. They need to read them every day. It is important to involve family and friends in this project, especially if there are people who have stopped smoking successfully. They need to be non-judgmental and be completely supportive. They need to be informed that we may become rather irrational and ill natured during this difficult process. We need to ask for their patience, so we will really get an actual help. It is important to arrange a stop date, which the day that we can finally eliminate our tobacco addiction forever. Achieving this may require a huge amount of effort.
We need to talk with the doctor and other professionals, so we are able to improve our chance of success. There should be a session to help our body to adjust with the absence of nicotine in our system. The doctor may also prescribe specific physical exercise to strengthen the respiratory system. Breathing exercise is also a good activity to improve our physical conditions. It is important that we are able to picture our path on how to become a non smoker. A hazy imagination can be a start for strong visualization and it is important to learn how to perform the most appropriate visualization. Stop smoking completely can be really difficult to do, so we may start by cutting back bit by bit. The arranged stop date is when the reduction finally culminates into a tobacco-free lifestyle. The amount of smoke that we inhale should become smaller every day, until we smoke only a single cigarette each day. You may purchase the least preferred cigarette, so smoking will become a less enjoyable experience. If there are plenty of cigarette packs at home, don’t give them to others. Just shred and burn them; if we want to stop smoking, we should stop avoid encouraging others to continue smoking.
We should also start to visually look like a non-smoker. It’s a good idea to get our nails and teeth cleaned, so they look fresh and bright again. We should promise to ourselves to keep them clean. After stop smoking, we need to celebrate this occasion. There should be a celebration for the first month and first 6-month and first year after we stop smoking. Repeated celebrations should become a reminder that our ability to stop smoking a big achievement. It’s also a good idea to start a few new, positive hobbies so we can stay physically and mentally more active. People with empty mind tend to turn to cigarettes.
