A Great Reason to Quit Smoking


Visitors: 154

I really never thought that I could quit. I had smoked for years, and sure, I tried to give up the habit, but my heart just wasn't in it. Perhaps you have found yourself in a similar situation, wishing half heartedly that you could kick the smoking habit but not sure if you could ever succeed. You might think that you are lacking willpower, but what you really might be missing is a reason to quit smoking.

If you want a reason to quit smoking there are too many to number, and it really depends on your personal situation. What some people have found to be helpful is to look at their health and the welfare of those that they love. We are all aware of the issues with second hand smoke, and you certainly don't need me to be preaching to you about that. And as far as that goes you might just get around that problem like I did, start smoking outside and away from people. What you really need to do is to create a reason to quit smoking in your mind.

For years I was hooked without hope on cigarettes, but that is because I really didn't want to quit. I think that quitting smoking is almost all mental at first, it will get physical soon after you quit, but if you aren't mentally prepared for the battle you will not be able to succeed. About a month or two before you actually give up the habit start to convince yourself of the fact that it is what you need to do. Make your mind completely over to the fact that you are going to quit and there isn't anything that anyone can do to stop you. That way, by the time you actually kick the habit you will be prepared to fight the long battle of withdrawal.

You can quit smoking for good, even if you have tried dozens of times unsuccessfully. Visit our website for a special report.
