i only smoke 1-2 a day (american spirits) and never finish them. its mainly at night after a long day or coming home from a stressful day at work.
Nature abhors a vacuum. So just quitting with nothing to fill the space will have you feel like something's missing. Find or rediscover a hobby you really enjoy to take the place of smoking that helps you blow off stress.
Could be exercise, yoga, dancing, journaling, knitting, volunteering, etc-- whatever floats your boat.
yea def find a replacement thing your passionate about and can excel at
with every pack you dont buy, put the money in a jar and at the end of the month treat yourself to something nice like a massage or shoes. girls like shoes lol. Right?
the thing is i dont ever have to buy a pack because ill just take one from my dads or smoke one with my dad
ok then every time you feel the need to smoke take a shower and breathe the steam. it will give you the same sensation and get clean. hmm i might try this now that i think of it
plan on a special "reward" 4 reaching goals ... Perhaps some reverse psychology can help u ?! (aren't there some adds showing folks who smoked and got some lung or so cancer). Would a nice foot soak (with the lavender essential oil etc.) relax u ?!
I recently quit, the thing that helped me the most was smoking the pack at night so I had none in the morning... "avoid gas stations 2 days lol" I read a strange tip too the shower comment reminded me, if you have access to a steam room you sweat out nicotine which reduces cravings. I craving are SUPER slim now. Good luck
Cold Turkey is definitely best. You also have to want to do it. If you are on this site then your health is obviously important to you. Just keep that in mind :) I found that sometimes guzzling back some water helps when you have a crazing. Gives your mouth and hands something to do other than smoke lol. I know when I quit I didn't know what to do with my hands for a long time. Good Luck :)
1-2 a day isn't addiction, it's just a stress release or a pick me up. So i would go along with Windlord and say find something else either energetic or relaxing to replace it. Maybe deep breathing techniques or something else meditative.
live threw the stress jedi daughter , never buy them throw them away don't accept them or ask for them. easy
