Stop smoking: The average long-term smoker dies 10 years earlier than the average non-smoker. If you smoke for stress relief consider this. Over a lifetime, smoking will add a great deal of stress by taking away good health.
It is hard to quit: Nicotine in cigarettes addicts people as heroin does. It often takes 2 to 3 tries or more to quit, don’t give up.
The best ways to quit: Set a quit date, ask family and friends for help. Use a nicotine patch or gum, ask your doctor about other medications. Do not smoke while using the patch or gum. Change habits. If coffee triggers the urge for a cigarette switch to tea. Learn to manage stress. Walking has been shown to help stop the urge to smoke.
