How to Quit Smoking Even When You Don't Know You Can: Step 3

  Ok, we have mentally prepared and agreed that we need to quit.  We next set a date to be smoke free and now we need to slowly whittle down our habit.  There are a few people that can quit cold turkey but most of us do better at weening ourselves off of an addiction.
   A few years ago I needed to loose some weight and so one of the things I had to do was cut out the amount of Dr Pepper I was drinking.  Just like cigarettes, the caffeine was highly addictive and was extremely hard to do.  I didn't feel that I could go cold turkey and so I simply cut the amount I was having for a week. Next I went to one every other day and soon to only on the weekends.  A couple of months later I was able to quit all together....but it started with simply limiting the amount I had in one day.  
   So in order to help you quit smoking lets set a limit of how many cigarettes we have in a day.  If your a pack a day smoker then only allow yourself 1/2 a pack a day. If it is hard to control the urge to smoke a whole pack then put your allotment into a bag and only carry that amount with you.  It might be tough but take baby steps and if you have a day that you smoke to much....DON'T beat yourself up.  Wake up the next day and tell yourself its a new day and a new you.  YOU CAN DO THIS!!!!

When we label thoughts, we assign them importance over others, so they occupy space in our minds.


Smoking is not a good thing because it is harmful for the human bodies and for their long life. I hope that the people will do all those things which is best for their life and they will leave the smoking.
