The Easiest Ways To Quit Smoking

May 27, 2008
Browse the internet or turn on the television and you'll see advertisements that make you realize that there are hundreds, maybe even thousands of ways to quit smoking. Patches, gums, inhalers, sprays, pills, and yes, even "cold turkey" are all popular options. But with all these choices in front of you, a person may wonder just what are the best, the most affordable, and yes, the easiest ways to quit smoking?

Don't get overwhelmed by the options.

Sometimes the biggest mistake a person can make when sifting through the many ways to quit smoking is to think that they need to find the "ultimate" help or aid in their battle against smoking. They're afraid to try one method because they think another might be more effective, and then eventually they don't try anything.

It's important not to get overwhelmed by your many options when it comes to ways to quit smoking, and to choose one and move forward with your decision. There is not usually a right or wrong decision to make, simply a decision that must have follow-through.

It's also good to remember that there are many natural and simple ways to quit smoking. If you're one that wants to go it cold turkey and just simply quit, you need to remember a few things to help you along the way. For one, be mindful of your diet. You'll get cravings to eat something, and if you fill up on sugary treats and fried foods, this will just make your stomach upset and queasy, and when you feel bad, you'll want to reach for a cigarette.

Second, make sure you drink plenty of water. This helps to flush the tar and nicotine out of your system faster. Most of the effective ways to quit smoking involve getting nicotine out of your system gradually, but if you're going cold turkey, you want to get it out as fast as possible. So don't forget about your water. Sip some all day, every day.

And last, it's important to exercise. This will help get your blood circulating at optimum levels and will also help get the nicotine out. It will also help renew your cells that have been damaged by smoking, and will make you feel better all the way around.

Yes, there are a variety of ways to quit smoking, and it may be shortsighted to say that any of them are easy, but with some determination and willpower, and the decision to take care of yourself while you're quitting, you can successfully kick this habit.

Some other alarming facts about smoking are that smoking triples the risk of dying from heart disease among middle-aged men and women. Think about that - the risk is tripled! Additionally, smoking affects every part of your body, from your mouth and throat to your bones, your blood, and your digestion.

But probably the saddest facts about smoking are those that affect "passive" smokers, or those that don't smoke themselves but that are exposed to it from others. Annually, exposure to secondhand smoke (or environmental tobacco smoke) causes an estimated 3,000 deaths from lung cancer among American adults.
