Quit smoking. The best time.

better time to quit smoking

Named the best time to quit smoking.

When is that? At any moment starting right now! Right now!

I explain why. Now - when you read this, what happens is that you can get rid of smoking, and it happens without fail. It can be anything, some kind of obstacles from the side of the law - prohibitions, restrictions, for example, fines for smoking in places where before you could smoke without even thinking. Constant price increases for cigarettes and nicotine analogues of smoking. There may even be interruptions in the supply of smoking products. It is even possible that there is an outbreak of the appearance of an infectious disease on the earth, which can occur with complications or cause a critical condition, up to a fatal outcome, due to a weakened smoking body or already received negative changes obtained due to smoking, and you can not even guess about it!
Whether it is considered a sign or a signal from above to reflect on your health or continue to smoke and hope for a proverb: what to be, not to be avoided. It’s even possible to constantly look at your life line on your hand and reassure yourself that it is long, that I feel great and that’s all, bad things that can happen will bypass me, because all the prerequisites for a long life are already checked and taken into account .

But even if you adhere to an optimistic scenario, relying on a life line and some personal signs that everything will be fine, they do not say anywhere that a long life can pass with a health defect, for example, get a stroke due to a thoughtless attitude to your health , or to save not the full volume of the lungs after an infectious disease. Accordingly, after that, immediately and immediately, quit smoking and continue to live and count the years on your recovery? Why wait and aggravate dramatic events for your health. If you delay and wait for an opportunity to quit smoking - this moment has come right now. You read it. You already know that.
Do you think it will be easier to quit further and for this there will be some special conditions under which, as if by a wave of a magic wand, you stop smoking? This will never happen.
Then you will smoke more cigarettes, vapes or any other electronic analogues of smoking than at the moment, which you understand will not improve your health, and you yourself understand, the more time passes from the moment you read this post, the more you will fill your lungs with smoke and nicotine, you will receive regular carbon monoxide poisoning (CO) and experience oxygen deficiency.

Most people, being optimists, take into account any, even the most insignificant and essentially meaningless signs and signals of a positive and favorable future, despite the constant and frivolous attitude to their health.

The real optimism lies in the fact that even the most negative and “unrealistic” prerequisites for quitting smoking are actually passing and not worth the experience and possible fear that they cause. All these horror stories and “impossibilities” to quit smoking so much remain in the past and are not remembered at all, do not disturb and do not make itself felt that any person who quit smoking always regrets why he did not do it before.

If you think that there are some deadlines, that you need to take courage and plan some time for preparation in order to quit smoking, then I will tell you - you can do without preparation.
You can quit smoking right away without preparation and regrets.

You need the last cigarette smoked at midnight, in memory of the past smoking, or the ritual of the last pack, or something else ... Why?
After some time, maybe even in a month, will you need this last smoked cigarette in your memory? You will remember her brand, how you lit her, how you savored the last blue smoke? Are these “memorable events” really important to you?

Another important point.
Suppose you are mentally ready to quit smoking right now. Throw away cigarettes and a lighter, breathe deeply and live on enjoying all the charms of life without smoking. But physically, nicotine addiction makes itself felt every hour, every half hour. You constantly delay the moment of failure, plan it for a week, a month in advance, and so on.
You are ready to quit smoking, but you want to do it smoothly, without the torment of weaning, it seems to you that something is about to happen and you just don’t want to smoke, but before that you need to smoke, smoke tomorrow, buy the last block of cigarettes, the last pack and etc. and so on. I want to do something, play it safe, be confident and prepared for the fact that quitting smoking will be easy and carefree. Well, imagine quitting smoking would be very painful - but doable!

Life without smoking and remaining health cost more than even the most excruciating withdrawal without cigarettes. Which occurs extremely rarely and lasts in the longest period of no more than 4-5 days.

Tips for quitting smoking

Effectively and to the point

A list or list of what you do not need to do when you decide to quit smoking, or just about decide to quit, or even for the future so that you know what to be prepared for. “Pitfalls” and “harmless” moments because of which you can smoke. (the list will be constantly updated)

  • First of all, rejoice! Rejoice that soon you will not even think about cigarettes and poison yourself with smoking. You will have a new life in which there is no place for addiction for cigarettes and tobacco stench.
  • Smoking habits are always advised to remove or reduce them ... All individually, someone quits smoking, along with drinking coffee, as it was no longer necessary without a cigarette, someone (like me) began to drink more coffee, as he began to distinguish aroma and a finer taste appeared and the sense of smell improved. Do what you think is necessary, but don’t be in constant tension, what you can and cannot do. The condition when there is nothing to occupy yourself without a cigarette passes in a week.
  • Make sure that you do not overlap with smoking accessories, so that nothing reminds you of smoking. Throw away, distribute or hide out of sight all cigarettes, lighters, ashtrays, everything related to smoking. If you have a thing that is expensive for you related to smoking, for example, a lighter or something else - take it out of sight, away, in the near future you should not need it.
  • Hassle and stress. Do not smoke at such times, even if it is almost unbearable and it seems to you that everything. It will be easier for you to cope with stress without a cigarette. Your physical condition will be better than with a cigarette. And even if you are forced to get stress daily - every day it will be easier for you to cope with it if you do not smoke. (verified, not only on oneself)
  • Well, smoke nothing, even harmless and without nicotine.
    No alternatives to smoking: electronic cigarettes, vapes and their analogues and more.
    Have you quit smoking to switch to alternative smoking?
    Is it so necessary for you to let out smoke from your mouth that you are ready for harmless smoking?
    Love to tickle your nerves - from “harmless smoke and steam” to a cigarette half a step away.
    If you do not want to break loose and smoke - do not do anything like smoking, especially containing nicotine.
  • The same applies to hookah. In addition, it has nicotine, and fragrant smoke does not portend a cigarette stench and harm.
    Do not smoke hookah, even 1 puff, if you do not want to start smoking again.
  • Do not be a passive smoker, - standing in the company where you always smoked, now without a cigarette - do not inhale other people's tobacco exhales. Do not accustom yourself and do not try to cause rejection in this way. Let them smoke - you, eat an apple. It is tastier and healthier than cigarettes.
  • When you quit smoking, you may have a strong desire to teach smokers and constantly remind them that they poison their body. Do not do this, they will not understand you, and moreover they may start laughing at you if you are not the first to quit smoking, but they know it. You do not smoke, they smoke. They spoil their lungs and earn hypertension, and you become healthier every day.
  • Alcohol. Since quitting smoking is a new stage in a healthy lifestyle (HLS), in the next month and a half, try to refrain from alcohol, in any quantity. If you can’t give up alcohol (there are different situations in life), take so much as to completely control yourself.
  • Mysticism, Philosophy and the Law of the sandwich (Murphy's law). What it is?
    After giving up cigarettes, after a long time, each one has his own (according to my information up to 3 months), a situation or event may occur that may force you to smoke - this is like some kind of test of your attempt to quit smoking. DO NOT SMOKE at such a moment, it will be within your power. Do not give in to nicotine provocations. On my own I will say that this is “the last dragon head”. After that, starting to smoke will be just stupid.

Imagine yourself five years after you quit smoking and completely abandoned nicotine analogs, went in for sports or physical activity that you like, and changed your diet to healthy and healthy foods.

And if you smoke all this time?

Compare these two people.

Don't be afraid to quit smoking

don't be afraid to quit smoking

If you are told that in a day or more you will not smoke, are you ready to go for it?

Most smokers will theoretically agree on this, almost none.
Why it happens? When you give up smoking, you will be deprived of “pleasure”, you will have a constant desire to smoke, but you will not be able to smoke or there will be some kind of “block” due to which you will constantly experience discomfort and constant desire to smoke. Especially such thoughts are compounded by the fact that it is impossible to imagine how you can not smoke after a few days, smoking at the moment a pack of a day or more.

All this is very similar to the truth, and even it is difficult for me to smoke and not to have a craving for cigarettes.
In theory, this is the case - however, in practice, everything is quite the opposite.

Smoking is a nicotine addiction (a proven medical medical fact) that is even mentally difficult to break. Perhaps when you refuse a cigarette, in the near future craving for nicotine will remain, and each person will have a different one, but with the help of modern means and methods it will be weakened as much as possible. Even if you want to smoke, then to cope with such desires will be quite realistic and affordable for any person, even someone who can never quit.

Now the flip side. If we assume that when you give up cigarettes, you will have a very great desire to smoke and unbearable cravings (which is most likely unlikely), then imagine how much you had a strong addiction and you are successfully struggling with it. The same applies to well-being after throwing.
Get off the bad habit as soon as you can. You will not lose anything, but only be healthier.
I sincerely wish you an easy and quick cessation of smoking and nicotine addiction.
