Most people really do want to quit smoking, but sadly for the majority it becomes an impossible task. Those who have succeeded at kicking their smoking habit almost always have a plan, as well as ample motivation to stay the course. The information in this article will provide you with the information needed to form a better plan for yourself, and perhaps help you stick with it.
The first week after you quit smoking will certainly be the worst stage. For the first two days after quitting, your body rids itself of the highly addictive nicotine, leading to physical withdrawal. From that point on, you will mostly suffer from psychological cravings. This means you will have no physical trauma from resisting those cravings.
Give yourself a reward everyday that you abstain from cigarettes. Eat a special food, purchase a new garment, go to a play or movie or purchase music you have been wanting. This transfers your cravings onto something a bit healthier and positive.
