Top Ten Tips to Stop Smoking

Tips to quit smoking

The first step to stopping smoking is having the right attitude. If you are desperate to stop smoking and understand that there are no health benefits, then you are on the right track. Take a look at these top 10 tips to help you quit your addiction.

  1. Understand the withdrawal symptoms

As your body withdraws from cigarettes, you may feel down and your body will feel different. However, you must remember that this doesn’t last long and there is no pain whatsoever. Once you are a non-smoker, you will be free of the effects of cigarettes.

  1. Try vaping with nicotine salts

Many ex-smokers have said that using an e-cigarette has helped them massively on their journey to stop smoking. This device allows you to inhale nicotine without the harmful chemicals and effects of smoking. Nicotine salts are a useful addition to your vape pen as they speed up the absorption of nicotine into the bloodstream, as well as having an extended shelf life compared to other nicotine based products.

  1. Make a plan

Make a promise to yourself to quit smoking. The best ways to do this is to set a date, time and sticking to the ‘not a drag’ rule will really help. If you stick with this rule until cravings pass, you will feel better about how well you are doing. Build your plan.

  1. Change your diet

Many people have a cigarette after their dinner. Recent studies have shown that particular foods make smoking more satisfying, such as meats and cheese. Consider having alternatives for your dinner and your cravings should minimise. Click here to see recommended foods.
