How to Quit Smoking

Smoking kills, but many of us still smoke cigarettes though. Why do we smoke? Well because first of all it is addicting, it contains nicotine  that acts on the brain to produce to a  number effects which are pleasant to smokers. Another thing is that it is fun to smoke, rewarding and it kills boredom.Some have started smoking while they are still young, some have tried it out of curiosity and got addicted to it and find it hard to stop. 

Yes it's hard to quit smoking but it's possible. I've seen a lot of people who have done it, it takes a lot of working to do and it takes commitment. There will be setbacks but setbacks are just stepping stone, if you smoke 2 packs of cigarette and you try to stop and cut it down to 1 and a half pack for a few days and back to 2 packs a day again, It means you have tried and  it was a success for a couple of days. You did not fail, You just have to do it again and again until you finally can quit.

Here are some tips that will help, It's not easy but when you have done it already, It will be just as sweet success.

Mind Setting
Well for me I believe in the saying "What the mind conceive the body will achieve". It's really helpful to think of what you really want to happen in your life. Because when it is already instilled subconsciously it will serve as reminder every second of the day of what you want to attain.

Self Talk

This is also very helpful, do positive self talk and encouragement. Some people may discourage you, they may say that it is impossible to quit smoking.Talk yourself out of it, they did it, Why can't you. Think about this: "The only thing standing between you and your goal is the crap story you keep telling yourself as to why you can't achieve them (Jordan Bellfort)". aqEverything is possible, put your mind into it.

Self discipline is the key, I know its hard but it pays off. When there is someone who is smoking,
walk away, that's the best thing that you can do.

A new hobby may help to keep yourself occupied. if there is a craving then think of something else to do, keep your mind and hands busy. Run, attend some dance, cooking class, go out with your non-smoking friends.

That will be all,How about you? What did you do and How long have you been smoke-free?
