It is never too late to quit smoking, everyday makes a difference.
Tips you can use that will increase your chances of success:
Make a list of all the reasons why you are choosing to quit including all the positive outcomes you will gain from being smoke-free.
Choose a quit date that gives you time to prepare and plan your personalized strategies. Choose a day that involves low stress, but will keep you busy, and is similar to a regular day.
Go through your house, car, and workplace and throw out everything that is related to smoking – ashtrays, lighters (including the one on the dashboard in the car). Wash and clean everything that smells of smoke.
Identify triggers that make you want to reach for a cigarette and write down ways you can separate or avoid yourself from those activities. Cravings generally last 3-5 minutes, if you can take deep breaths and keep busy to preoccupy your thoughts during that time the urge will pass.
Include a support system in your program such as your partner, friends, family and co-workers. Those that love you will provide encouragement and guidance.
Buy things you can chew or stick in your mouth when craving a cigarette – gum, candy, carrot sticks, celery, cinnamon sticks, or lozenges and keep them readily available.
Use fun phone apps which can motivate and track your success, including money you have saved through quitting and games you can play to distract you while fighting an urge. Top rated apps include: Cessation Nation, Smoke Free and Drop It.
Consider guided meditation or positive affirmations which help retrain your thoughts and instill mental strength and self-control while fighting addiction.
Join support groups in your area that offer resources such as counseling, education, and treatment through websites such as healthy class.com or becomeanex.org.
