If you are a smoker and worried about the risks around COVID-19 then now would be a good time to think about quitting for good.
It is a harsh reality that if you are a smoker you are more likely to get acute respiratory infections and have a higher risk of those infections becoming severe.
There has never been a better time to stop smoking.
But quitting is hard for many, and perhaps particularly so at a time of great stress and when many of our routines have been so suddenly disrupted
Perhaps, like the majority of smokers, the mere thought of stopping ﬁlls you with panic
If you smoke, the mere thought of giving up can ﬁll you with PANIC…?
Is this YOU?
You have every intention of quitting one day – just not today…
Is this YOU?
Don’t worry, you are not alone.
Most smokers continue to smoke for one reason…
THE ONLY THING THAT PREVENTS US FROM QUITTING IS: FEAR!
Fear – that you will have to undergo an unknown period of time suﬀering feelings of deprivation.
Fear – that social occasions will not be quite as enjoyable without a cigarette.
Fear – that you cannot concentrate or be as conﬁdent without that crutch..
Fear that your identity, your personality or your character will change.
Fear – that you will lose the “helpful friend” that helps you cope with stress.
And that quitting may cause you to gain a few pounds.
And here’s the news…
That fear of giving up is actually CREATED by cigarettes.
You never decided to fall into the nicotine trap!
But nicotine is designed to ensure that you remain there, and you need to be motivated to break free.
And, you can take some small steps towards a nicotine-free life.
A rehearsal for the time when you can give up smoking for good!
So, follow the steps below to start your journey to becoming a NON-SMOKER!
- Make a list of the reasons to quit:
- There are probably a number of them – but have you ever actually written them as a list?
- Set a quit date:
- And stick to it!
- Change your brand:
- ONE week before your quit date – change your brand of cigarette. You will ﬁnd they are not as enjoyable.
- Try to change the hand you use to hold your cigarette:
- It will feel awkward – but this small change breaks down habits and associations:
- Change your routine
- If you normally smoke after a meal, try to break out of this routine. Try reading a chapter of a book, watch a TV show, or retreat to a part of the house where you would not normally smoke.
- Get active:
- A ﬁve-minute walk or stretch produces chemicals in the brain that reduce cravings.
- BE POSITIVE:
- Make regular aﬃrmations to yourself several times a day –
“I am enjoying life as a non-smoker”
Hypnotherapy can help you to have your last cigarette ever!
It will show you the reasons to stop and can help you:
- With motivation to stop smoking – and stay stopped.
- Break the connections – the triggers – to smoking.
- Feel positive about becoming a non-smoker.
So, if you haven’t been able to quit smoking before, that doesn’t mean you won’t be able to do it now!
And if you COULD stop smoking easily and without cravings why wouldn’t you want to break out of that habit into a fresher, cleaner, healthier YOU?
