Smoking is very bad for you. To quit smoking you may need a very powerful reason. May be the thought of lung cancer frightens you. May be you want to protect your family from secondhand smoking. May be you want to look younger. Choose a strong reason to outweigh the urge to quit.
Talk to your doctor and take prescription pills. These pills may reduce the cravings by working on the chemicals of the brain. They make smoking less satisfying when you pick a cigar.
Once you decide to quit smoking tell your family, friends and co-workers about it. Their encouragement is required and it makes a real difference. You can opt for behavioral therapy which helps you identify and stick to the quit smoking strategies.
Alcohol and coffee are the common triggers that will boost your urge to smoke. If coffee is triggering the condition, turn to tea for a few days. If you have the habit of smoking soon after the meals, try to do something else like chewing a gum or brushing teeth.
Doing some physical activities can ease nicotine withdrawal symptoms and reduce cravings. When you want to smoke, try to engage yourself in activities like putting on the shoes and going for a jog or a walk. Mild activities like walking a dog or gardening can help.
While you give up smoking, try to eat more. Take more amounts of fresh fruits and vegetables, and low fat dairy products. This helps to fight your cravings for smoking.
