for you to master one day, might be your biggest headache another day.



It is extremely important to gain a thorough understanding of why you want to quit smoking. Simply
waking up one morning and deciding to quit typically does not work. You need to have a specific reason
that you are determined to quit. Whether your reason is for improved health, due to the request of
your doctors, because you want to save money, or you just really want to be alive for your children.
Ultimately, the reason itself is not important. The important thing is having a reason.



People who choose to quit smoking without an actual reason to quit find it much harder to quit. When
the going gets tough, they typically have nothing to look at as an ultimate motive. What might seem
entirely impossible for one consumer can seem like a total dream for others. If you find that you are in
this position you need to sit down and really analyze your decision to quit. Decide on the specific reason
and write it down if necessary so that you always have a reminder. You may be surprised at just how
helpful it is to write your wishes down.



If you have to talk to others to help you decide upon the specific reason then feel free to do so. This can
often be a great exercise to help you strengthen your resolve to quit as well. What might seem like a
simple idea on paper may seem completely overwhelming if you start thinking about it. Talking to
someone can help you to once again realize that it really is simple. Additionally, talking to someone
about your desire to quit can be great to help you realize the temptations that you may encounter as
well as ways to conquer those temptations.



Choosing to quit smoking is not an easy decision. The fact that you cannot simply quit is going to make
it much harder. Many people find that they are absolutely terrified to quit smoking. They believe that
they just do not have what it takes to quit successfully. Finding yourself in this position is often scary. It
is important to have a good network of supportive people around you. From your friends to your family
you need the mental support of people who believe in you. Feeling down is going to be normal at times,
but your support network should be quite helpful in boosting your confidence again.
Gaining the strength to quit smoking will take some practice. Overcoming all of the temptation is
difficult of course as well, but pulling support from your friends and family, as well as making a
conscious decision to quit will go a very long way in your struggle. What starts as a completely
overwhelming process will ultimately seem quite simple. You will be able to quit smoking, you might
have difficulties but you will ultimate come out triumphant over the cigarettes.



Regaining control of your life is possible, and with your support network in place, you will be able to
ensure you are around for a very long time, and your health is much better. Simply deciding to give up
on your attempt to quit smoking is not possible. You will be able to regain control, using your own
strength and pulling the support of those around you it really is possible to change your life for the
better, one cigarette at a time.
