First five stop smoking tips

smoke is killing you
1. Decide to stop.
Wanting to stop smoking is different from actually making a decision to quit. Note it! Write a potential date in calendar for when you are going to stop and every time remind yourself that you have made up your mind about it. It all goes with a decision. The other ways to stop smoking will then come easier.

2. Slow down with that.
All smokers usually whip out their cigarettes the moment they feel the urge. The next time you want to quit, slow yourself down and delay the process. Is there anything you can do instead of lighting up that very instant? Think of other important things to engage in and leave your cigarette box alone for a while. This will help to stop.

3. Get Rid of nicotine wishes!
Once you have practiced delaying the urge to light up, we suggest you stop smoking cold turkey. That's right, just throw your cigarettes away. This will be hard but you must to do this. Get rid of nicotine wishes. Throw away your ashtrays, lighters. This is one of the most important ways to stop smoking.

4. Shake Everything Up.
Rearrange your time so that your habits will loosen too. Eat at slightly different times of the day, switch your furniture around, and try to make everything at your home different to what it was before. The mental effect is that you'll acknowledge change, i.e., that things are different and you are no longer tied to the past.

5. Take your mind off the urge.
The urge to nicotine will still be strong, perhaps even stronger during this period. So whenever you fell like smoking, distract yourself with something - job, family, hobby, pets, your car. Just physically do something that will take your mind off the urge and onto something else.

Hi Serjj


An exercise program on daily basis is going to help us relive of stress, and recover from years of damage from cigarettes, may be we can start walking ones or twice per day. We may also consider about some rigorous activities 3 to 4 times per week. Consulting our physician prior to begin any exercise program.

Practicing some deep breathing every day 3 to 5 minutes breath in through the nose slowly hold breath for a few seconds, exhale slowly through our mouth.
