As well as treatments and support groups, there are other things that you can try to put into practice to help you to stop smoking.
Approaching quitting with a positive frame of mind can be really beneficial. So focusing on what it is that you’re going to achieve rather than the short term discomfort of withdrawal.
You can also think about when you tend to crave a cigarette, and prepare yourself for this in advance. So, for example, after you’ve had a meal, try to distract yourself with an activity or something else that you enjoy.
Changing your usual routine can really help too. So, if you used to wake up and have a cigarette, try switching up your morning habits. For example, having a coffee on the way to work instead could help you break the cycle.
Exercise can play a big role in quitting too. Not only is it good for your overall health, but there is some evidence that it reduces cravings.
At the very least, it can keep your mind occupied in a healthy way.
Putting a combination of these things into place really can allow you to achieve a life changing goal that you can be proud of.
