Stop Smoking: Three Easy Ways To Quit The Puff

Dec 17, 2007
Smoking often gets started as a fun among friends and ends with ruining one's life personally as well as professionally. People who are used to smoke at regularly basis are not only at potential risks of getting deadly diseases like cancer but also make people surrounding them vulnerable to these diseases. Your puffs can wreck your relationships. Thus, it is always better to restrain oneself from smoking. But if one has got webbed with this vicious habit, he needs to quit his habit of smoking for his welfare and for the sake of well being of his family. Though it is never easy to quit smoking if you have become a chain smoker, but few things can really help of you get over with this sin.

First and most important is self belief. You have to entrust yourself that you can quit. To make your belief, you need to recollect the bad experiences you have encountered in past and then the way you emerged as a winner over those conditions and circumstances. This helps you to imbibe a confidence level in yourself that you have the power to quit this bad habit of yours. You have faced many more difficult situations than this and handled them well, so this is another bad phase of yours you need to overcome.

The next thing is to have a self control over you also called self control. You need to show your resistance and will power whenever someone offers you cigarette. You can get drool for a single puff and one generally thinks from next time I will not smoke. But there lies the problem. You console yourself to be resistant next time but sad, this way next time never comes up. Make a commitment with your loved one and always keep in your mind that you are going to ditch her/ him by taking even a single puff of cigarette. Just remember that person and think can you accept that person ditching you? If no, then you need to stop yourself as you are doing the same thing and that person can't accept you not keeping the promise you made with her/ him.

Another factor which proves how fast you quit smoking is how long you can sustain your commitment to quit smoking. It is pretty easy for a person to keep his resolution of not to smoke for a shorter period but it needs real commitment from you to make it a long term decision. Without effective support of family and friends it is hard to keep your resolution. Ask your family and friends to push you hard to not to allow you to smoke whatever plea you can take and if possible for you, ask them to punish you if you got caught smoking. Another way to sustain the will to quit smoking is to jot down on a paper your reasons to quit and benefits. Make a habit to read that paper every day.

Just following these simple ways, you can overcome your habit of smoking.
