Here Are Some Tips To Quit Smoking
Just Before You Quit
Just before you quit you need to clean everything in your house and car. Give it a deep cleaning. You want to get that stale smoke smell out. That stale smoke smell can trigger a craving. I know, when I was a teenager my mom and dad got divorced and I stayed with my dad. We went from apartment to apartment to finally we ended up in a one room sh*t hole above a bar. There were eight rooms there and everyone smoked but me. I went to school (And still managed to graduate) smelling like an ashtray. The better your environment smell the better chance you have of quitting.
Get Rid Of Your Smoking Tools
Through away your ashtrays and liters. The less you see them the better the chance you’ll not think of lighting one up. The less you think about smoking the better chance getting a craving.
You need to take up a hobby. A good for you hobby. Noooo, drinking is not it. Something like exercising. Yes, I said it. EXERCISING! That’s a healthy for you and gets the blood flowing. You know that treadmill in the corner of your bedroom that has been converted into a clothes hanger? Get on it. Go for a bike ride. Anything to take your mind off smoking. Take your dog for a walk if you have one. Do something healthy. Plus you’re going to feel much better physically and mentally. Drink lots of water. I drink about a gallon a day. This helps to flush your system out.
Replace the Habit with a Good Habit
You have to replace this bad habit with a good habit. Take up an interest, something you’ve wanted to do but just didn’t. Writing, cooking,(Be careful with this one. You may kick the habit but gain a new one if you know what I mean. get it, Gain a new one) I crack myself up… where was I, hoya, I found a program on “Online Marketing”, Lots of training, writing, reading and communicating on their “Community Page”. You can click here for more information. (Selfless Plug) Plus it’s Free! It keeps me real busy. I don’t even watch TV anymore. I can’t believe I just said that. It works for me. Try it!
Find a healthy snack
I found celery sticks or baby carrots will help. It gives your hand something to do. And you can take them with you and have them on you all the time. So when you have the urge you can reach for a carrot or celery stick. (And beat the closest person near you with it) Sorry, I had a craving. Now that’s over with.
Dealing with the stress
You’re going to need to do something with your hands when the carrots warrant cutting it for you. You can get a stress ball or clay. Something you can squeeze the sh*t out of. Maybe your neighbor’s neck. Sorry, another craving. I’m sure you find something on eBay.
For the mind
You can take up yoga or you can meditate. You’ll have to give me a second, I can’t type and laugh at the same time. OH my God, OK I’m good. All kidding aside, yoga and meditation are very good for you. They both can lead you in a spiritual path that is very gratifying. OOOH crap, I did it again. I can’t breathe… OOOH, my selfOK we need to move to the next one or I’m going myself.
They say when you’re having a craving to take deep breaths. It helps with the cravings. If you have been smoking for a long period of time you may still have nicotine residue built up in your lungs and deep heavy breathing will help release the nicotine from your lungs,
The Bottom Line
If your the 90% of the people that just know that this crap will never work for me then buckle up buttercup and get an e-cigarette! I know, there’s all sorts of scary sh*t out there about how the e-cigarette are just as bad as smoking. Bull paddy! The big tobacco companies are just trying to scare you. They don;t give a crap about your health. They just want to line their pockets with your blood money. You can click here and see for yourself. And you’ll see that e-cigarettes are way better for you than smoking.
