Quitting Smoking


The worldwide studies indicate that the 75-80% of heavy smokers wants to quit smoking and one third of the smokers have seriously tried to quit smoking for at least three times. Accordingly, cessation of the smoking habit before the age of 60 is below 50 percent.
Most of the smokers that want to quit smoking are capable of breaking this habit themselves. To this effect, it is required to be determined and to try a lead-in period. If required, physicians and healthcare personnel working at health centers should be consulted for support.


Some simple actions and recommendations for quitting smoking can be summarized as follows:

              
Step 1: Set a date for quitting smoking.
Step 2: To get prepared for quitting, tell the people around you that you will quit smoking.
Step 3: Prepare an environment suitable for quitting smoking. Remove ashtrays away.
Step 4: Hang “No Smoking” warning signs at various places.
Step 5: Review your trials that have failed in the past.
Step 6: Think of and note down the reasons why you smoke and why you should quit smoking.
