The very first step in quitting smoking is to first have the desire to do so. The wish to quit must be greater than the need to become successful. Together with that primary step comes building a stop smoking support system that includes a group of family and friends to help keep your confidence level up.
Without a support group in place, for many people it is hard to combat the cravings and make it past the first few days. For lots of individuals 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.
There are dozens of products on sale to assist you with quitting smoking. One of the most popular are the Nicoderm patches.
For some people they do work well and come in three different sizes, each with different nicotine concentrations. To overcome the oral cravings, hard candy and chewing gum work very well.
Those that smoke menthol cigarettes will gain from mint flavored candy and gum. The non-menthol smokers benefit from cinnamon flavored candies and nearly any flavor chewing gum.
Nicotine enhanced chewing gum is available but more as a craving curbing device than anything else. Nicotine gum does contain some nicotine, it is insufficient to completely stop a craving in most cases.
The flavor does disappear quickly and the effect is lost generally within half an hour. Many smokers that are trying to quit smoking combine the nicotine gum with a mouth spray that contains nicotine.
The spray enters the pores in your mouth and lasts longer than the gum. There is a better chance of stopping smoking when the two elements are combined.
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 without any cravings. Just like any medication, there can be negative effects and some are serious.
For many people a much easier way to stop smoking is to use an electronic cigarette, or e-cigarette. The e-cigarettes are available in many different flavors and emit only water vapor.
The companies that sell e cigarettes state that no harmful chemicals are emitted into the air. The downside of these is that they are expensive and do require charging.
As you can see from reading the above there are quite a few options for quitting smoking. Some people have the willpower to quit smoking going cold turkey and never turn back. For most, this is not the case and they eventually turn to clinical hypnotherapy for smoking.
