The very first step in quitting smoking is to first have the desire to do so. People that are forced to quit smoking have an 80-percent failure rate.
The want to quit has to be greater than the need in order to be successful. Along with that first step comes building a stop smoking support system which should include family and friends to help keep your confidence level up.
Without a quit smoking support system in place, it is hard to fight the cravings and make it past the first few days. The first 72 hours in the process are the hardest. If you make it through that, you are well on your way to a smoke-free life.
You deserve to be a non-smoker. Do not give the tobacco companies any more of your money. Perhaps you can reward yourself with a holiday that you have always wanted with the money that you are no longer spending on cigarettes or tobacco.
There are dozens of stop smoking products on the market to help you quit smoking. The most popular are the nicotine patches. They do work well for some people and come in three different size patches, each have different nicotine concentrations.
Those that smoke menthol cigarettes will benefit from mint flavored candy and gum.
Nicotine enhanced chewing gum is also available but more as a craving curbing device than anything else. While it does contain some nicotine, it is not enough to completely stop a craving in most cases. The flavor does wear off quickly and the effect is lost generally within 30 minutes.
Many smokers that are trying to quit smoking combine the nicotine gum with a mouth spray that contains nicotine. It gets into the pores in your mouth and lasts longer than the gum. Success is had with this method when the two elements are combined at the right time.
For those that have tried to quit smoking several times and failed, Chantix is a prescription medication that still allows you to smoke for the first week of use. It is designed to slowly decrease your cravings and have you smoke-free within just a few weeks with no cravings.
As with any medication, there are side effects and some can be serious.
There is a much easier way to give up smoking and that is by using an electronic cigarette, or e-cigarette. Some do contain nicotine but it is minimal and is not enough to cause any further lung damage. The e-cigarettes are available in many flavors and emit only water vapor.
As you can see from reading the above there are quite a few options for quitting smoking. Some have the willpower to quit cold turkey and never turn back. For most, this is absolutely not the case. Explore the options and decide which method will work best for you. It is perfectly acceptable to try several methods before finding one that actually works.
