Top 5 Reasons To Quit Smoking

Mar 24, 2008
The top five reasons to give up smoking are:

* Health - are you already suffering the ill effects of smoking? Perhaps members of your family are affected by second hand smoke leading to bronchitis, asthma or other health problems.

* Better professional image - do you really want to be remembered for your smoky breath and stale smell on your body from smoking cigarettes. You are brighter when you are smoke free.

* Sense of achievement - you have been controlled by cigarettes for so long. Now your desire to be happy, healthy and smoke free is driving you to take back control of you.

* Set a good image - maybe you have a baby or grandchild and you wish to set a good example to children. Or perhaps you have been promoted and your desire to be smoke free is two fold - better image at work and encouraging those under you to be become smoke free.

* More money - think what you could do with the money you can save by not spending it on cigarettes. It is like a tax free pay rise for you.

Checklist

You need to make sure that you are 100% ready to be smoke free. The reason why you have not become smoke free in the past was probably due to the fact that part of you (at a subconscious level) wanted to continue smoking. See Am I Ready to be Smoke free?.

You must ensure that:

* You are not undergoing any major life stresses at present;
* You can devote 30 minutes a day to listen to your session for the next three weeks;
* You are prepared to follow the Tips for Staying Smoke free

If you are a recovering alcoholic or drug addict you must ensure that you have a support system in place. You have worked hard to overcome your previous addiction so you do not want to revert to it. Support is extremely important.
