If you have been smoking for quite some time, and have tried to quit on at least one occasion then you know by now that there really isn't an easy way to quit smoking. So if quitting smoking is such a difficult thing, what are so many people successful at it? Let's examine what a successful former smoker did to make the transition to a smoke free life as easy as they could.
First, you need to prepare your mind for action. If you aren't convinced in your mind, 100%, that you are going to be able to give up the habit then you will fail. I know that for me, it took months of preparation and mental conditioning before I was able to successfully give up the habit. Don't ever underestimate the power of positive thinking.
The next thing that you should do is to prepare in advance what you are going to do to overcome the habit. There are plenty of quit smoking aids out there like the nicotine gum or the patch. Perhaps one of these things will help you to quit without suffering so much. I didn't do any of them to give up smoking. Once I made my mind up I went cold turkey. Yes it hurt a lot, but it healed quick.
One other thing that you need to do in advance is to remove any obstacles that will stand in the way of success. Some of these obstacles could be triggers that would make you want a cigarette. Take the time while you are making your mind over to identify your smoking triggers. Removing them to the best of your ability will help you to overcome the habit with the least amount of resistance.
You can quit smoking for good, even if you have tried dozens of times unsuccessfully. Visit our website for a special report. http://www.youcanquitsmoking.info/
