Have you decided to try and make 2017 your healthiest year yet? That’s such a great idea, and the new year is a great time to start and get your life back on a healthy track. After all, everyone is currently thinking of new year’s resolutions right now, so it is the perfect time to think of a few goals for the coming year. And one of the best health goals to give yourself is aiming to quit smoking. Is that still a bad habit that you struggle with? If so, here are some amazing tips that will help you snub it out for good!
Don’t Go Cold Turkey
For years many people thought that going cold turkey was the best way to give up smoking. However, some studies show that people who do try and give up smoking all at once are a lot more likely to start again. So try and cut down on your habit slowly. This may seem pointless at first, but the more you quit, the more you will see just how much cutting back slowly will help. There are various ways to cut down slowly. You might prefer to limit the amount of cigarettes you smoke each day or switch to vaping some low-tar tobacco e-liquids.
Tell Everyone You Know You’re Quitting
There is one thing that everyone finds as soon as they quit smoking: it is very hard! But don’t let that put you off! You will need a lot of support to help you stay strong throughout the process, but you will easily be able to find that. You just need to let all your friends and family know that you are trying to quit. They will be able to motivate you, and won’t try to tempt you out for a cigarette break whenever they want one!
Remind Yourself Of The Benefits
There will no doubt be lots of benefits and advantages that come with giving up cigarettes. For instance, your health will dramatically improve, and you will also find that you save a lot of cash. All of these great advantages will probably be your main reasons for quitting. So it is important that you keep these in mind and continually tell yourself why you are giving up smoking. All of these benefits and advantages will help you to stay motivated and achieve your goal!
Stay Away From Other Smokers
One reason why some people fail to kick their smoking habit is because they are tempted to have a sneaky cigarette. But one cigarette will lead to more and more! One of the best ways to stay away from any temptation is to stay away from other smokers. Especially during your first month of being smoke-free. If you are hanging out with other smokers just after you quit, you will find that being around them could trigger some cravings. And they might be difficult to ignore when you are surrounded by all the smoke!
Hopefully, all of these tips will help you enjoy a smoke-free 2017!
