How Day 2 of Quitting Smoking Can be Easier than Day 1

Description

ow easy day 2 will be depends on how you think and your perception of quitting smoking. Instead of thinking “oh no, I need to get through another day of quitting smoking”, think “I’ve done it once already” i.e. day 1, “I don’t see why I can’t do it again… if anything it should be easier as I have already done it”.

This assumes you got through day 1 cigarette free, if not, focus on getting through that first… and use the same techniques to get through day 2.

You can see that the perception around quitting smoking is wrong because whenever you speak to someone about quitting, the first thing you hear is something negative… it’s hard, I really need a cigarette, blah blah blah.

When you do this, you are setting yourself up for failure, because by thinking it’s hard, you de-motivate yourself and don’t really think you can do it. This results in less persistence and half-hearted attempts to quit.

If you feel you really need a cigarette, then you haven’t really conquered the hold that cigarettes have over you. You are still associating good things with them i.e. they relieve stress, feed my nicotine addiction etc. But did you know that nicotine only stays in the body 48 hours after your last cigarette, so if you are still getting withdrawal symptoms after this it must be a psychological issue more than a physiological one.

If you associate bad things with cigarette smoking, this is the actual truth and it will make you not want a cigarette more than you want one. You will start to think like a non-smoker does.

Another thing to remember is that you can be a non-smoker for months but once you start thinking of cigarettes again and associating good things with them, those thoughts start creeping into your head tempting you to smoke like “it’s ok you’ve quit now, just 1 cigarette won’t hurt”. Don’t give in to it, because just 1 cigarette can lead to 2, and you smoking more often than you would of otherwise.

If didn’t smoke on day 1, you make more of a commitment to stay quit for day 2 as you don’t want to ruin your hard work. You have the experience of not smoking for 1 day successfully which is a positive reference point to motivate you too.

It’s also important not to take quitting too lightly, practice self-restraint, because the pay off you get from not smoking is the best!
