How To Quit Smoking Fast

By Tony Sanger

To make sure that a quit
attempt is successful, you have
to be fully aware of what you
are doing and why. Motivation is
going to be one of the strongest
tools you will have in your
arsenal for this fight therefore it
is essential that you take the
time to write a list of why you
are quitting smoking. Whenever
the withdrawal symptoms are at
their peak or that you feel yourself crumbling you are
able to refer to this list for motivation.

Whilst the cold turkey method works best for many
people, these are generally in the minority. Simply giving
up smoking and dealing with all the physical and mental
withdrawals which follow will tax even the strongest-
willed of people. This is a rare person that can overcome
this without any kind of help. However, for other people,
it appears that quitting cold turkey is the preferred
method because it is the quickest way to get all the
nicotine out of their system. Only you can determine if
this is actually the best method for you personally.
If you are serious about quitting cigarettes once and for
all then a consultation with your local doctor is advisable.

They are capable of giving you some prescribed
alternatives to help you with your quit which are not
easily available over the counter at the pharmacy. There
are various medications that help your mind and body
functions through the quit, which could make it easier for
you to keep on track during those difficult quit moments.
When it is time to quit you need to inform all of those
around you family, friends and work mates of your plans
to quit smoking. Not only will they be ready to provide
vital support when you need it the most, such as the
times when you are feeling your resolve crumbling, but
they also need to be mindful that you might be feeling
just a little fragile and emotional for the first few weeks of
your efforts.

While this sort of feeling are completely
normal, it may be distressing for your family and friends
to see you being affected by your feelings without
understanding why you are feeling this way.
Should you fall off the wagon and have a cigarette or two
do not automatically assume it is all over and begin
smoking full on again. Write it off as being a bad day or
even a bad hour and double your efforts and resolve to
quit. You can easily use this as being an excuse to
abandon the quit so remind yourself by looking at your
motivation list if you have done one your reasons for
achieving this in the first place.

Whichever method you choose to adopt when it is time
for you to give up the cigarettes, so long as you are
100% determined and consistent in your methods then
success is going to be yours. Your overall health, wallet,
family and friends will appreciate all your effort once you
are smoke-free forever. Put the information in this short
article to good use and start a healthier, happier and
longer cigarette-free life!
