Important Changes to Quit Smoking
Smokers have special weaknesses- any kind of stimulant like caffeine, boredom, loneliness, and stress are all triggers for those who are trying to quit smoking. Here are some suggestions for ways to cope with those times:
Avoid Coffee and Caffeinated Sodas. Drinking water instead. It's better for your health, and it won't make you crave cigarettes. Look for sodas without caffeine. Avoid chocolate until you're beyond those first hard days and weeks.
Don't have unplanned time to fill. Staying active is the best way to keep thoughts of smoking out of your mind. Even at home, try to find something to do to keep you busy until that craving fades. Play some music and dance . Rearrange your furniture or move pictures around to give your room a new look and feel. Without a doubt, get rid of everything in your house that reminds you of smoking - all the ashtrays, matches , old cigarette lighters are taboo! Clean your oven. Do anything that's productive and active. you'll feel better about yourself when you get through the temptation AND have something to show for it!
Schedule your day to include fun. Quitting smoking may be the hardest thing you ever try to do. Reward your successes with fun activities. You don't have to spend a lot of money, but you do need to enjoy the process as much as possible. Go to a motive. Go window-shopping. Visit some tourist sights in your area. Go to an art show or museum. Keep yourself interested in life while you are saving yours!
Include people in your quit smoking effort. Don't get lonely. Your family and friends will most likely be delighted about your decision, and they'll want to support you. Take some time to rebuild old relationship. Ask a friend out to lunch or dinner. Take the kids for a special outing. Go on a date with your significant other. You can go places now you could never go when you were smoking!
Avoid stress at all costs. Know what gets you angry, upset , or nervous. If you can't completely avoid those situations, make a plane for how to deal with them without smoking. Learn some deep-breathing exercises. Start meditating. Exercise regularly. Find ways to reduce tension and stress , and you'll be a successful non-smoker before you know it.
Incorporating a regular exercise plan into your life is one way to quit smoking and get back that healthy glow you used to have. Exercise alone probably isn't a cure-all , but it's critical part of any quit smoking effort.
