What would you do when your house is on fire? Would you sit and think, plan and come up with a solution or just jump out of the window? But the truth is that unless you consider your smoking habit as dangerous as a house on fire, you are not going to jump. That is for sure. So, the obvious answer to the question 'what to do when you are sick of smoking?' would be - just quit! But this answer you've already heard from Many who don't smoke or those who have never successfully quit themselves.
So here is some advice from a smoker of twenty years who quit 10 years back.
Though for you to come to this point of wanting to quit smoking may be a major breakthrough in your life, you need to know that the desire to quit alone is not strong enough for you because it is not enough for most people - 97% to be precise. So, unless you belong to that minuscule minority, don't do it, even if you are desperate and want to quit right at this very moment.
Before you attempt to quit, you must first remove as much emotion from the process as humanly possible for although you are depressed or emotionally charged at the moment, it is not possible to maintain that level of anger or desperation long enough to see you through the quitting process.
You may want to quit because you have smoker's cough; a serious health scare; desire a better environment for your children; or just want to quit for yourself because you know it is the right thing to do. Look at your reasons and write down all the emotions and reasons you want to quit. These reasons will help you on your journey to becoming a non-smoker.
Use your reasons instead to help you on your journey to becoming a non-smoker; your emotions will only keep you wound up.
Note your reasons for quitting and then strengthen them with information. Search the internet for as much useful information as you can find. The more you know about the task at hand, the less hold the nicotine monster will have over you. Information will prepare you for all the hurdles on the way so that you are strong enough to face them and overcome them.
No matter which program you ultimately choose, you must do one all important thing - YOU MUST USE IT!
Buying a program and then leaving it in the package will do nothing other than keep you smoking because you have a stop smoking kit available that you will 'get to someday'. Someday is too late. Get the information you need - order a program - and use it. You'll be glad you did.
Get the information you need, order a program and start using it at once. You'll feel gratified as quitting smoking is one of the most rewarding things you will ever do in your life.
