10 Tips and Tricks
for Eliminating Cigarettes in Your Life
Set a stop date and tell all
your friends the date you are stopping.
2. Put a picture of a skull and
cross bones on all your packages of cigarettes a month
before your stop date.
3. The day before you stop get rid
of all your paraphernalia that goes along with your habit
such as lighters, cigarettes, and ashtrays.
4. Get rid of your cigarettes.
5. Make a list of your triggers;
for some it is giving permission to take a rest. Also after
a meal some people smoke and some smoke in their car.
6. Write down the reasons you
started the habit in the first place; some people did it
because of peer pressure. Others were copying a parent's
behavior. Some did it to rebel.
7. Write down the reasons you want
to stop the habit.
8. If you have a family member that
has the same habit, if he/she isn’t ready to quit have them
agree to keep cigarettes unavailable. Have them smoke
9. If there is another habit that
goes along with the one that you have that’s not as hard for
you to stop, think about stopping that one first. For
example people often have cigarettes with their coffee, so
stop the coffee first if that’s easier. You might be able to
go back to coffee, if that is desirable, in a few months
once you’re over the addiction part of the cigarettes.
10. Once you stop smoking, start
putting away the money you had been spending on cigarettes
and save up for something special.
Remember you’re only one
cigarette away from being hooked again. So the trick is not to
pick up the habit again.
If you do this and you still
aren’t able to stay away from cigarettes, then see a therapist
that does emotional clearing because it means that there are
deeper issues that need to be eliminated.
can be used for other habits, although, I suggest that you get
help from a therapist for alcohol, drugs and food addictions.
