Plan to Quit Smoking

Smokers generally ask for answers as to how to quit and not why to quit. There is lot of Help to quit smoking and no method is particularly the right way to quit. But there are some keys elements in quitting smoking like- making the decision to quit, setting a quit date and choosing a quit plan, dealing with withdrawal and staying quit.

The decision to quit smoking needs to be made by the smoker alone. He has to make the real commitment. Once a decision to quit smoking has been made, the smoker should decide on a quit date. He should start making preparations for the quit date. There is no right method to quit and hence one can choose any method suitable to oneself. Friends and family should be informed about the quit date. Cigarettes and ash trays should be cleared from all the places. Oral substitutes like sugarless gum, carrot sticks, hard candy, cinnamon sticks etc should be kept ready. Successful quitting depends on proper planning and commitment.

Dealing with withdrawal symptoms is very tough. It has two parts- mental and physical. The mental symptoms pose greater challenge compared to physical symptoms. Smokers also tend to make rationalizations and justify smoking. Rationalizations are mistaken thoughts that seem to make sense at a particular time, but the thoughts are not based on reality. Smokers must avoid rationalizations. One must use the same methods that were used to quit smoking, to stay quit always. Smokers also tend to slip or relapse. Slip is a onetime mistake that can be corrected immediately while a relapse is going back to smoking. Smokers should try recovering from slip. Even in case of relapse, one must not get discouraged but make another trial.
