TIPS TO QUIT SMOKING

1Whānau

QUIT TOGETHER

WITH YOUR Whānau

Quitting alone can be tough, so if you have a family member that smokes as well ask them to join the journey and quit together. That way, you can keep each other motivated and encouraged to quit smoking as well as being able to talk to one another about any struggles you may have.

If you are the only one that smokes in the family, it is still important to talk to your family to let them know that you are quitting. Being able to be encouraged and receive support from those around you is one of the best motivations to stay smoke-free.

2Habits

HABITS

We all know that habits are hard to break. Which is why when smoking becomes a habit, it becomes one of the most difficult habits to break. The first and most important thing to know is finding out what is causing your habit of smoking to kick it and managing it. If you smoke mainly when you drink, it is important to avoid drinking until you are smoke-free. You can also use an alternative such as an e-cigarette if you require something in your hand and if it is purely habitual - you can opt in for a nicotine free e-cigarette.

3Cravings

CRAVINGS

Ensuring that your cravings are managed can be difficult. This is especially when you are smoking due to stress or any other emotional reasons. A good way to manage your cravings is by distracting yourself which includes calling a friend, taking a walk, or having a healthy snack such as a piece of fruit.

You can also substitute your cravings with other means such as a patch, gum, or a vape which will provide the nicotine you need without all the chemicals and toxins found in a cigarette.

4Motivation

MOTIVATION

Having a goal is a good motivation to keep you on track with your smoke-free journey. This will allow you to track your progress and keep you motivated. Be sure to always set yourself a milestone and reward yourself once you reach that milestone - this will keep you motivation high and will allow you to keep on going.

Besides, kids learn fast by looking at your actions, if you smoke, kids may end up following your actions. Children who start smoking at a younger age are more likely to smoke heavily and at greater risks of developing smoking-related diseases. Quit smoking now and set an example as this will affect the future generation.

APPEARANCE

When you quit smoking, your body starts to repair itself. As the toxic chemicals break down from your body, you get much more blood circulation - meaning more oxygen and nutrients for your head down to your toes. Your face will develop a healthier complexion and whiter teeth.
