Stopping Smoking – Your Loved Ones Care
December 29, 2009 by Answer Provider
If you really want to stop smoking, all you need to do is find a substitute to it. I know of folks who picked up caffeine instead, or nicotine gum. These measures have been known to help rather well for a lot of Americans because they now have something else to occupy their minds and time with. It can help you too. A lot of folks smoke when they are worried. If you are one of them, you could look for other outlets for your frustrations instead so that you don’t turn to the cigarette. You might be surprised to find that you feel the urge less and less when there’s something else to occupy your mind when you are worried. More so, just being worried is counterproductive. Try as much as you can to avoid being worried all the time.
Smoking can be the most difficult habit to break because it is so addictive, but people all over the United States and other parts of the world have done it, and many more are still quitting the bad habit, thus proving that you can do it also. And if every attempt that you make fails, why don’t you see a shrink to help you. You’d be surprised how much progress you can make in just a few sessions. I have heard that iced water helps with stopping smoking. Somehow, it takes care of your cravings for nicotine, so you want to be drinking it when you feel like you need another ‘fix.’ Hey, I got that off of the internet; something some docs said at the famous Mayo Clinic.
I don’t think a doctor is the best person to help you with stopping smoking, seeing as so many of them know the hazards but they smoke also. I think the best way to quit is to find a person who has succeeded at it before. Their own stories might inspire your. Stopping smoking for you might require that you join a group of friends and take therapy together. I didn’t think there was much potency to it until I saw it happen before my very eyes. Some dudes just got together and made themselves stop smoking. Well, it’s been three years since, and they are still going strong. So, this technique might work for you, if you but try it.
Nicotine is addictive; that is why so many people make claims all the time of trying to quit, but they never quite seem to succeed. To break the habit, you have to break the addiction. And to do that, you have to go about it the very same way you would break any other addiction… by following doctor’s instructions. They are the experts and know best how to help you stop smoking. Having someone that you care a lot about might help you stop smoking. In truth, I know that a lot of people do it in defiance of their parents or some other such figure in their lives. However when they find someone that they don’t want to be selfish with, they could do it for them. Every time you feel like smoking, think about the person that you are hurting, and you will learn to leave the bad habit well alone.
