How to Stop Smoking for good NEED HELP STOPPING SMOKING

STOP SMOKING FOR GOOD Smoking is such a standard behaviour which people have learned to relate with fun times and belonging but also as a quick fix stress relief.

STOP SMOKING NOW Allen Carr in his book Stop Smoking Now likens it to enjoying the sensation of suffocation and he is not wrong. Lack of information on how bad smoking is for health is not the problem, it's the motivation.

LETTING GO OF Letting go of a 'thing' that has supported you through thick and thin is obviously not easy. Think of a toddler who is being weened off a pacifier. It can take numerous tantrums and screams of bloody murder but the change will happen.

KIDS & SMOKING Kids learn by proxy, they don't need to actually do something to imagine it working. If a child grows up with smoking parents who smoke under stress they will learn that a cigarette is a safe way to deal with stress.

SO HOW DO YOU STOP? So how do you stop? Well, it takes practice. On average it takes about 7-8 tries to change a behaviour for the change to be final. The truth is, you will get really good at quitting - you will know what symptoms to expect: anger, sadness, hunger, even rage and resentment towards everyone, especially towards other smokers.
