10 Steps to help you quit smoking

1. Set your sights on quit day

Mark your calendar! Choose a specific date in the new year to officially ditch the smokes. This gives you time to prepare mentally and logistically. Announce your goal to friends and family – their encouragement can be a powerful motivator.

2. Identify your triggers

Identify the situations and emotions that trigger your smoke cravings. Is it stress? Social gatherings? Boredom? Once you recognise your triggers, you can develop coping mechanisms like taking a brisk walk, practising deep breathing, or chewing sugar-free gum.

3. Get rid of all traces of tobacco

Be ruthless! Round up every cigarette, lighter, and ashtray in your vicinity and dispose of them. Deep clean your car and home to eliminate any lingering smoke residue. This symbolic act sets the stage for a smoke-free environment.

4. Use nicotine replacement therapy (NRT)

Don’t go cold turkey alone! NRT products like patches, gum, and lozenges provide low doses of nicotine to ease withdrawal symptoms and cravings. Consult your doctor to determine the most suitable NRT option for you.

5. Drink plenty of water

H2O is your new best friend! Drinking plenty of water flushes nicotine from your system and curbs cravings. Aim for eight glasses a day to stay hydrated and support your quit journey.

6. Eat healthy foods

Nourish your body with healthy foods rich in vitamins and minerals. These provide sustained energy, improve mood, and bolster your resolve to resist cravings. Think fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and lean protein.

Physical activity is a powerful weapon against smoking. Exercise releases endorphins, natural mood-lifters that combat cravings and stress. Aim for at least 30 minutes of moderate-intensity exercise most days of the week.

10. Celebrate your successes

Acknowledge and reward your progress! Every smoke-free day, week, or month is a reason to celebrate. Treat yourself to a small reward, spend time with loved ones, or simply pat yourself on the back. Recognising your achievements fuels your motivation and keeps you moving forward.

Quitting smoking is one of the best things you can do for your health. By following these 10 steps, you can increase your chances of success. Remember, you are not alone in this. Many people want to help you quit smoking for good.
