On yesterday post #Singapenn gave you the effects of #smoking ( Don’t burn yourself 🔥). As #Singapenn said earlier today we going to see about the tips to #quit #smoking or the way how to #quit #smoking.
Remember, there is no safe level of tobacco use. #Smoking even just one cigarette per day over a lifetime can cause smoking-related cancers and premature death. Quitting #smoking can reduce your risk of health problems. The earlier you #quit, the greater the benefit. Some immediate benefits of quitting include:
- Lower heart rate and blood pressure
- Less carbon monoxide in the blood (carbon monoxide reduces the blood’s ability to carry oxygen)
- Better circulation
- Less coughing and wheezing
It is hard to stop smoking or using smokeless tobacco, but anyone can do it.
Know what symptoms to expect when you stop smoking. These are called withdrawal symptoms. Common symptoms include:
- An intense craving for nicotine
- Anxiety, tension, restlessness, frustration, or impatience
- Difficulty concentrating
- Drowsiness or trouble sleeping
- Increased appetite and weight gain
- Irritability or depression
How bad your symptoms are depends on how long you smoked. The number of cigarettes you smoked each day also plays a role.
FEEL READY TO QUIT?
First, set a quit date. That is the day you will quit completely. Before your quit date, you may begin reducing your cigarette use.List the reasons why you want to quit. Include both short- and long-term benefits.Let your friends, family, and co-workers know of your plan to stop smoking. Tell them your quit date. It can be helpful if they know what you are going through, especially when you are grumpy.Get rid of all your cigarettes just before the quit date. Clean anything that smells of smoke, such as clothes and furniture.
MAKE A PLAN
Plan what you will do instead of smoking at those times when you are most likely to smoke.Be as specific as possible. For example, if in the past you smoked when drinking a cup of coffee, drink tea instead. Tea may not trigger the desire for a cigarette. Or, when you feel stressed, take a walk instead of smoking a cigarette.If you normally smoke after eating, find other ways to end a meal. Eat a piece of fruit. Get up and make a phone call. Take a walk (a good distraction that also burns calories).
CHANGE YOUR LIFESTYLE
Make other changes in your lifestyle. Change your daily schedule and habits. Eat at different times, or eat several small meals instead of three large ones. Sit in a different chair or even a different room.Satisfy your oral habits in other ways. Eat celery or another low-calorie snack. Chew sugarless gum. Suck on a cinnamon stick. Pretend-smoke with a straw.
SET SOME GOALS
Set short-term quitting goals and reward yourself when you meet them. Every day, put the money you normally spend on cigarettes in a jar. Later, spend that money on something you like.Try not to think about all the days ahead you will need to avoid smoking. Take it one day at a time.
Most people who have #quit #smoking were unsuccessful at least once in the past. Try not to view past attempts to #quit as failures. See them as learning experiences.
Nothing is possible in this world until trying to do it. So friends have a courage to #quit #smoking, don’t give up until you succeed quitting.
Never ever give up 👍
