Decide on Your Reasons for Quitting Smoking

quit smoking tips

For me, there were so many obvious reasons for my health, the financial cost of smoking, the fact it stinks… and these are similar for everyone. The deciding reason for me quitting smoking comes down to my children.

About 2 months before I quit smoking my daughter came to me (with a very proud) look on her face and told me she is going to grow big like me, wear my clothes, become a mommy and smoke. I felt so ashamed and so sad that moment. She wanted to be just like me. A smoker. This is what she looked up to. She was 3 years old at this time.

This was the exact moment I realized my smoking days were coming to a close.

3 Weeks later my daughter asked me to play a game with her. I told her yes, no problem, just give me 5 minutes. She then looked at me and said: “Oh are you going for a smoke first?”. There was no accusation or unhappiness in her question at all…. but it suddenly hit me that I put smoking above everything in my life. Even my children. What am I saying to my child by my behavior when I have to have a smoke before I do anything with her? It says loud and clear that smoking is more important than her.

This was the exact moment I decided I would be quitting.

So my now 4-year-old daughter and my 2-year-old son are my reasons for quitting smoking. I want them to have their mommy put them first at all times. And if they do come second at times, I don’t want it to be because of cigarettes! I don’t want my children to smoke and if they do, let it be because they choose to smoke, not because they are copying their mother.

Set A Quit Date

how to quit smoking

Whenever you decide to do something in life, you should always starts with the initial date or its call the born date. note down the day and the date of your first step against the gigantic habit that you have created since long time. you need to be sure when you’ll strike against your deamons. you need some force to quit from smoking. that’s the reason why planning with perfection is needed. most of the fells don’t know the psychological power behind these little things are too heavy to lift any burdens. remember, this war is not easy and you are not too weak.

Tell People

Share with your friends and family that you are going to quit, tell them the date. The fact that I wrote a post about it on my website and then shared it on social media made it really hard for me to back out of my date to quit smoking!

No Nicotine Replacement or Cutting Down Before Hand

Until the day you quit smoke as much as you want, in fact, smoke more! How addiction works is that unless you are physically consuming the thing you are addicted to, you are actually in the process of craving it. So to cut down is really just torturing yourself before you quit. Rather smoke, enjoy your cigarettes and mentally prepare yourself for the date you have set to quit.

The same goes for nicotine replacement. What is the point of quitting smoking and then giving yourself a little hit of the thing you are addicted to in another form? You will make it harder for yourself, in the long run, I promise you this! So forget the patches, leave the gum and the vapes!

It really is a case of all or nothing here. Smoke or don’t smoke.

Change Your Mindset

This is a big one and hopefully, this will come about when you read Allen Carr’s book. Smoking is a trap, there is no way out unless you quit. You are chained to your cigarettes. Quitting smoking is not a loss for you, it is a gain.

The sooner you come to see this and hold onto this the better. Even though you may understand it logically, when you quit smoking it is not so easy to keep the positive mindset that you are free.

Don’t think “I can’t smoke, I mustn’t smoke”.

Think “I choose not to smoke”.

Do Anything BUT Smoke, Be Kind To Yourself

This addiction is strong. I told myself as long as I didn’t smoke (or drink/ take drugs) it was fine. Bring on the coffee, chips, Coke (cola not cocaine), sweets, cake…

And boy did I munch! I am now left with a sugar and caffeine addiction that I will be addressing soon, so watch out for that.

One Day/ Minute/ Moment at a Time

Stay in the moment, don’t think about the fact you will (hopefully) never smoke again. This will fill you with terror. Just decide that for the next 5 minutes you won’t smoke.

This is what I did. I told myself to have a cup of coffee and if I still want to smoke I can drive to the shop and get some cigarettes. When the coffee was finished I told myself I am going to go for a walk on the beach and if I really want to smoke I can do it after my walk. Keep busy and just get to another point each time.

This truly works wonders.

 One Puff is all it takes…

One puff of a cigarette and you will be smoking like a chimney again! Please trust me on this because it will happen. If you start thinking you can smoke the odd cigarette or have a puff of one now and then you are mistaken.

I still sometimes want to smoke and the thought of never smoking again (or drinking or taking drugs) fills me with fear and terror. I tell myself every day that I can smoke, I can drink and I can take drugs… but if I do I will be back where I started. I can one day do that, it just won’t be today.

Just for today I will not smoke, drink or use drugs.

I hope you have found these steps how to quit smoking helpful. I hope this will help you quit smoking and keep you a non-smoker. If you have any questions or just want to chat please leave a comment.
