One tip for quitting smoking is making a list of positive reinforcements. By looking at this list when you have a craving, it can reinforce your reasons for quitting and help you avoid a relapse.
To be healthy and live longer for your loved ones
As we all know, smoking causes health problems that interfere with quality of life, and even shorten your life. Quitting is a first step to being a healthier person, as well as can allow you to do things you couldn't do before, such as running and exercising without becoming out of breath, or coughing uncontrollably.
By quitting smoking, you no longer have to brave the elements to get your nicotene fix. On bad days you can stay indoors, and on nice days, you can use the time to take a brisk walk, or call a friend rather than having a smoke.
Saving money is a huge bonus when you quit smoking. As an extra incentive, try putting the money you would be spending on cigarettes in a jar to see how much you actually save. Then, once you've hit a milestone, use that money to treat yourself.
It's a struggle to quit smoking, and when someone fails, it can hurt their self-esteem. But once you start treating yourself better, and you celebrate small goals in your journey to quit, your self-esteem will also improve.
