Ive been smokefree for 42 days now. I have quit in the past.
Cold turkey is the best way.
Understand your addiction.
Train your brain to think in a different way.
I joined a smoking forum this helped me loads! Tips and support from people that know exactly what your going through i would recommend nosmokingday.org.uk
Whyquit is an informative website. Educate yourself on what smoking really does to people.
Avoid triggers alcohol, tea, coffee, even hanging around areas (pubs, friends houses) where you'd normally smoke. Anything you have to do to get over the initial cravings and nicodemons that batter you mentally.
It is a very emotional but empowering rollercoaster of a journey, one im sure you will get through if i and many others have.
And remember if at first you dont succeed, pick yourself up and try again. One rule NOPE...Not One Puff Ever!!!
Good luck and pls message me if you need any support. x
I recently quit about a month ago.. I started pushing that morning smoke off longer and longer each day... First try to not smoke till after you've gotten ready for work then slowly push it till your first smoke is on your break then increase till lunch. Once you get to lunch you start to realize you can go a day with out one.. Be strong and break free of your chains even if you mess up one day don't give up or be hard on yourself. Just keep trying. Hard part is finding something to replace that hand moment. Gum..A straw perhaps... Anything to distract you... cravings only last a few minutes. Good luck with your endeavors :)
