Tricks that will help stop smoking once and for all
Once I had a firm decision to say goodbye to smoking. I fully realized that this habit does not make me better. After a couple of weeks of my abstinence from cigarettes, I met a friend. She asked me: "You do not smoke anymore? For real? And what, you do not even dream of cigarettes? "And then I realized that I had already dreamed of it several times in a short time, like I was taking a puff! This fact further strengthened me in the idea that dependence on nicotine is a dependence of consciousness, and not of the physical body.
To part with smoking, you need to understand what motivates you to do this. What do you like more: light a fire, smell smoke, cough and suffer from bad breath, examine your teeth in a mirror, conduct conversations in a smoke break, scatter lighters and ashtrays everywhere? Everyone finds something of their own, smoking is a kind of hobby. If you do not know what to do, smoke, do not know what to say, smoke; You want to eat, but nothing - smoke.
Tobacco is useless, it quenches nicotine craving, which he himself creates. If you smoke for the first time in your life or after a long break, you will not feel anything other than disgusting sensations. Dizziness, nausea, unpleasant taste in the mouth - something that will catch up with you after a smoked cigarette. Only experienced smokers understand this strange pleasure, and the more difficult it is for them to refuse it. In addition, tobacco companies are not asleep, advertising is doing its job, not allowing people to come to consciousness and make an informed choice, on which they depend. As for me, it is better to develop in oneself dependence on more pleasant and profitable things than smoking ...
If you decide not to smoke, be prepared, that it's easy. You just need to.
