Look For Information And Encouragement At A Stop Smoking Forum

Nov 8, 2007
Wherever you look, the writing is on the wall; cigarette smoking is injurious to health. However, this statutory warning is unable to reflect the horror of the disease and death that cigarette causes so that now in many places a cigarette pack also contains the skull and bones image to better drive in the point. Smokers not only put their lives in peril but also cause all those around them to suffer the dangers of passive smoking.

Quitting smoking tests the nerves of smokers to the extent that they may need help and support to accomplish this seemingly insurmountable task. The extreme physical and emotional dependence on nicotine causes the smoker to experience great anguish while quitting smoking. However, a strong determination coupled with aid and support can make the burden easier on the smoker. One option to make quitting successful is by participating in stop smoking forums. The online forums are a great source of information and motivation to stop smoking.

Forum as a source of information:

If you do not feel that you can adopt the cold turkey method to stop smoking, you can try out the stop smoking forum to enlighten you on various aspects of giving up the habit. Here, you will find abundant information on alternative therapies, traditional treatment methods and so on. Those smokers who are first timers at quitting can get a lot of help from the information that is prominently displayed for this very purpose. One important and immensely valuable feature of a stop smoking forum is the experiences of former and present smokers that are posted. Their feedback is very crucial because it tells you about the mistakes that they made or the successful tactics that they adopted. You can thus, steer clear from similar mistakes and emulate their winning strategy.

Social pressure:

While you gain from the experience of others it is also a good idea to share your own stop smoking plan. So, introduce yourself to the stop smoking forum and talk about the route that you are taking to quitting, the problems that you are facing as well as how you have successfully overcome some obstacles. This will benefit other smokers trying to quit who will take courage from your experiences. So while you have to put up with the splitting headaches caused by withdrawal, knowing that you are a source of encouragement to others will make it more bearable. Another manner in which stop smoking forums can be beneficial to you is that when you start interacting socially via the forum you are under greater pressure to maintain your non-smoking status, which will make it very awkward and difficult for you to light up even if you want to.

It is easier to suffer a relapse when you are alone in your quest to stop smoking. Whereas, when you have to post your progress every day on the forum, cheating yourself and others will be task that will not come easily to you. And if you do succumb, talking about it on the stop smoking forum will not only lessen your guilt but will also bring out encouragement from others to not lose heart but keep at it.

So, explore your social environment and network to derive maximum benefit from it to help you succeed in your struggle to give up this dreadful habit.
