How To Quit Smoking

What is your biggest vice? If it&undefined;s smoking, you had better take a step back, understand the consequences and make a decision. Choose between illness, disease and death or a healthy life. The harsh reality is that smoking is the number one killer around the world. It causes heart disease, stroke, cancer, high blood pressure, and tons of other health problems. The thing is that most smokers know this. They know how terrible smoking is for their health, not to mention that it is a very expensive habit.

The harsh reality of cigarettes is that they are addictive to the point that people choose death and disease over their own life. Nicotine and other additives have people so hooked that their health is no longer number one priority. Quitting smoking is probably one of the hardest things you will ever have to do but if you can do it you will be forever grateful. If you dont know where to start, try making a list of all of the things that you like and dislike about smoking. Does it calm you down? Is it handy in a social situation? On the flip side, write down the things that you hate about smoking . Does it cost you money that you could be spending on other things? Is there a social stigma attached to it? Be honest with yourself and really examine the list when you are finished. It is also useful to write down all of the  reasons that you want to quit. Use this as your starting inspiration on your journey to quit. Next, find a stop smoking aid that will help you quit. The patch, gum, hypnosis, acupuncture and laser therapy are all aids to help people quit. If you do slip up, make sure to write it down. Record where you were when you smoked, what you were doing and  how you felt. This will help you to better understand when the cravings are going to hit and will help you to avoid these situations in the future.

Even if you fall off the wagon, don&undefined;t give up. Quitting can be a process. Many people try numerous times before they quit for good – don&undefined;t get defeated.
