Should You Stop Smoking? (Part 4)

Jun 13, 2008
There are many methods to stop smoking, and among the better known ones I can mention:

1. the acupuncture
2. the magneto therapy
3. the hypnosis
4. the mind control

To which should be added the necessary psychological support to face the abstinence syndrome.

And that can be carried out with:

1. Psychotherapy
2. Relaxation and Mind Control
3. Help to the smoker phone lines
4. Family Support
5. Friends
6. Programs to stop to smoke

And possibly a therapy will be needed for the substitution of the nicotine with nicotine substitutes like:

1. Nicotine chewing gums (they can be bought without recipe)
2. Nicotine Patches (they can be bought without recipe)
3. Nicotine Pills (they can be bought without recipe)
4. Aerosols (recipe is required)
5. Inhalers (recipe is required)

When is it the best moment to begin a nicotine substitution therapy? The best moment to begin a nicotine substitution therapy, is when you begin to stop smoking.

What nicotine substitute is better? The statistic gathered so far don't indicate that anyone is better than the other ones, the substitute that you must choose depends on your choice and habits, but it is important to highlight that all present some kind of inconveniences, reason why even when you choose one of those that don't require recipe, it is always advisable to consult a doctor, who might even prescribe you some antidepressant, besides the nicotine substitute.

But repeating what I already said before, to be able to stop smoking, it is necessary to have knowledge about what the tobacco addiction implies (this web page has been written for it), and it is also needed help and an appropriate motivation.

If you decide to stop smoking it is good that you remember what Mark Twain said: "To stop to smoke is easy, I have already done it a thousand times"

For that reason, if you want to stop to smoke and you don't want to go through Mark's experience, you should know that a sudden and strong desire to smoke, can be presented months or years after having abandoned the bad habit, and to be able to overcome it without falling again in the claws of the nicotine, you need to know that:

Just as it happens to an alcoholic that can not take neither a single glass of alcohol without relapsing, you can not smoke neither a single cigarette without running the risk of falling again in the bad habit. And you can not even practice a single inhalation without putting in danger all that you have gotten

Review the reasons that have taken you to leave that bad habit, and the benefits that you have found for you and your family, and continue enjoying the pleasant sensation of knowing that you are a man that has conquered itself.

What Do You Need To Stop Smoking

A plan to stop smoking is only successful if it contemplates three aspects:

1. You should know very well what is it to be tobacco addict, and which are its consequences.
2. You need a training or help to face the abstinence.
3. You need to be absolutely motivated when attempting it

If one of these three aspects is not contemplated, the plan has few probabilities of success. The percentage of people that are able to stop smoking by their own means is of only 5%, reason why it is always convenient that you accept the help of the ones that know how to do it.

Another thing that will increase the success possibilities, is that you supplement your plan with some substitution system as chewing gums, nicotine patches or antidepressants (if the doctor prescribes them)

Keep in mind that the strong desire to smoke will be more intense the first days after leaving the cigarette, but it will diminish every week, and to the fourth month you will hardly feel it.
