Stopping an addiction is one of the hardest things to undertake in life. It necessitates concentration, determination, consistency, and dedication. The decision to quit smoking originates in the mind. In this article, I'll go through four action steps you may do to support your choice to quit smoking.
The steps are as follows:
1. Consider the following:
If you wish to quit smoking, you should begin by contemplating it. You should also make some inquiries yourself. Here are a few things to consider.
a. The amount of money you spend on cigarettes.
b. The advantages of quitting smoking for you and your children (whether you are married or not).
c. What else could you do with the money you're wasting on cigarettes? What are the advantages for you and your family?
d. Why do you continue to smoke? What is it that keeps you in that pattern?
e. List five benefits and five drawbacks of continuing to smoke.
2. Seek assistance
The harsh reality is that we can not always help ourselves. You'll need someone's assistance if things go out of hand. Make an effort to speak with someone about your decision to quit smoking. Friends, family, and support groups can all assist you.
3. Get ready.
It may be easier to quit smoking if you understand why you smoke and what causes you to do so. Here are some things you can do to get ready.
a. If your friends are the ones who make you smoke, you should break up with them.
b. Change your habits to quit smoking.
c. Make a strategy for dealing with difficult life situations without resorting to smoking.
d. Establish a time limit for stopping. Search your house for everything that resembles a cigarette before that day.
4. Give up smoking.
It won't be easy in the first few days or months. Whatever signs you notice in your body indicate that you are on the mend. Always give yourself a pat on the back for every victory you achieve each day.
