Smokers have different alibis when it comes to quitting. Some smokers will totally defend their addiction and will justify that nicotine is doing something good in their life. On the other hand, for those who are already suffering from the ill effects of smoking, they truly admit that smoking is bad but unfortunately they couldn’t find the easy way to quit.
It is true that withdrawal from smoking is not so comfortable, but the symptoms don’t last long. After about a week, they are gone. This happens because smoking has made your body believed it depended on it. After some time, it is only normal, that your body would readjust to this state.
If you experience cravings, remember that the strength of the craving should subside within three to five minutes. Any crave episode triggered by habits (for example, an after-dinner eliquide savourea craving) should subside as long as you distract yourself. Conscious triggers like acute stress may need extra work to overcome.
I don’t know about the health benefits of cutting your smoking in half but there have to be some. I felt a definite improvement in my overall health and well being and a great sense of accomplishment. Plus, with the price of cigarettes hovering around $4.00 per pack, I have saved over $700.00 in the past year alone.
If you really can’t go cold turkey then maybe it’s time to try nicotine alternatives. These are products such as patches or inhalers that deliver the addictive nicotine without the other harmful chemicals and smoke. The idea is to slowly lower the amount of nicotine you absorb, so that your body craves it less. This has been a fairly successful method in quitting.
Of course my teeth got whiter without using any whitening gel or the like. I hadn’t even thought about that benefit when I decided to end my relationship with cigarettes. I was delighted when I noticed. Even more delighted when others mentioned it to me.
Often used techniques are mediation and yoga, but many people do not like to do this. They find it boring, well as long as you get relax it does not matter how you do it. Take a good “mind relaxing” book to the park, get a blanket and enjoy nice weather. That should relax you enough.
