There are many ways to quit smoking but the most promoted methods like e-cigarettes, nicotine replacement therapies (NRTs), prescription drugs like Zyban and Chantix, hypnotherapy and counseling and support are not necessarily the best ones.
I recommend these 6 methods because they are free, safe, natural, and don’t rely on quit smoking aids. You can class them all as cold turkey… a method I highly recommend.
But before you get worried, cold turkey doesn’t have to be hard, it can be easy, if done in the right way. Here are 6 examples for quitting smoking going cold turkey.
1) Financial incentives to quit smoking
A bribe, if a friend or relative offers you a significant amount of money to quit, you’ll be more determined to quit. A bet with a person can also help stick to your goal, or a fine each time you light up. If more money is offered, and if you do any of these in a group, the success rate will be higher because of the peer pressure. The method that works best depends on your character too… whether you hold yourself accountable, or don’t like to fail a challenge. In know this method may not be cheap but the following ones are free.
2) Distract yourself from smoking
Have you noticed that when you don’t think of smoking, you don’t crave it? This can make going cold turkey easier. Try distracting yourself with another activity… it could be reading or a sporting activity, whatever works best for you.
3) Strong incentives/reasons to quit
Similar to financial incentives but more geared towards the things that would really drive you to quit smoking. You may already be rich, in that case financial incentives won’t help. Thinking about the health consequences may be a better one. Here are some other ideas… to look younger, not smell of cigarettes, to increase life span, pregnancy, to save money you spend on cigarettes for something else, to feel fitter.
4) Start small when quitting smoking
If you see quitting smoking as hard it may be because you are trying to bite off more than you can chew. In this case, start small, focus on quitting for just half a day, and do a whole day the next day. Or don’t smoke in half of the situations in which you would usually smoke, until you don’t smoke in any situation.
5) Change the way you see smoking cigarettes
Cigarettes do nothing for you, there is no need to feel deprived if you stop smoking. Keep this in mind constantly. Pity smokers, don’t envy them. They also want to give up but usually can’t. Remember, how you coped fine before you started smoking.
6) Change the way you see quitting smoking
Quitting smoking doesn’t have to be hard when you associate bad things (the real truth) with it rather than good things, this way you want to quit more than you want to smoke. You have nothing to lose and everything to gain when you quit smoking.
