In order to quit smoking you must first ask yourself the following: Do you really wanna quit, and why do you want to quit?
Once you have answered these 2 questions, you can begin on the road to recovery!
When I stopped smoking cigarettes about 2 years ago it was a mind over matter thing for me.I had to be mentally focused in order for me to quit smoking cigarettes.I had to realize why i wanted to quit and I came up with lot’s of answers.
Below are the following reasons why I wanted to quit?
1.I was tired of being so tired in the morning when I woke up to go to work.
2.I was tired of my wife always asking me to quit because she didn’t want to kiss me.
3.I was tired of having chest pains in my chest that would periodically appear and disappear.
4.I was tired of going to buy cigarettes in the middle of the night to feed my nicotine cravings.
5.I was tired of having the cigarette smell on my clothes that really never go away unless you quit for good.
6.I was tired of making my wife and daughter sick because they had to smell the toxic pollution from the cigarette smell on my clothes.
7.I was tired of giving away more cigarettes than i was actually smoking myself.
8.I was tired of hearing those surgeons general commercials stating what the cause off nicotine has on the brain and the body and that I was at risk of catching cancer.
9.I was tired of hurting God because I was an active church member in my community.
10.I was tired of being sick and tired and weak minded to a drug that was controlling my way of life and the company I chose to be around.
These are the 10 reasons that constantly entered my mind and these are the reasons that made me ultimately wanna quit for good.
I want to stop totally. Even if there’s an e liquid sale or vape kits available for sale, I did not consider any of these. I want to fully commit and start a fresh beginning. The good thing is, I have a supportive family and friends.
If anyone who wants to quit smoking you must ask yourself many questions then you will be able to build up enough courage to stop for good.This is what worked for me and I stopped cold turkey by not slowing down how much i smoked but,by just making a mental choice that helped my mental control over my physical.The first week is the hardest task just fighting those stomach withdrawal symtoms.If you can survive the first week you are well on your way to quit smoking for good.You will be eating more food perhaps but just eat healthy low carb foods and you will not put on so much weight.Also,make sure you exercise at least 2 to 3 times a weak to recover from all those toxins in your body.You will sleep better and have more energy and your health will gradually increase.
Final note: It takes about 10 years after you quit smoking for your lungs to be completely clear of all the plaque and tarter build up from smoking cigarettes.There’s no better time than to start today.Good luck!
