4 Things That Could Help You to Quit Smoking

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

It’s 2019. I don’t need to tell you why you should quit smoking – you already know. You’ve heard about all the nasty health risks associated with cigarettes. You know that it’s bad for you, but it doesn’t change anything – you’re still struggling to quit.

Well, don’t blame yourself too much. Nobody said quitting was easy. In fact, it’s a very difficult feat to accomplish for most people. If you’ve been smoking for many years, the task can seem completely insurmountable.

The good news is that it doesn’t have to be, and you don’t need to go at it alone. There are tools out there that can help make things a lot easier for you. Here are 4 things that could help you to finally quit smoking.

1. Nicotine patches

You’ve probably heard of these already, but you might not completely understand how they work, so let me fill you in. Nicotine patches are patches that go on your skin and provide you with small doses of nicotine throughout the day.

If you’re a smoker, you’re not actually addicted to cigarettes, you’re addicted to nicotine. Nicotine is the addictive substance within cigarettes, everything else is just an add-on. Therefore, nicotine patches will fulfil that craving for nicotine while helping you to avoid all the nasty stuff that comes with it in cigarettes, like tar.

Eventually, you’ll be able to transition to patches with lower and lower doses of nicotine, weaning yourself off of it completely, until you’re ready to fully quit.

2. Inspiration & Support Apps

A big part of the reason many smokers fail to quit is that they simply run out of motivation, or struggle to hold themselves accountable to their goals. That’s where speaking to other people can help.

There are apps out there that can link you up to other people who are trying to quit so that you can benefit from shared encouragement and accountability. One such app is the Quitter’s Circle. You can also sign up to text services like SmokefreeTXT to get regular tips, advice, and encouragement that will help you to kick the habit once and for all.

3. E-cigarettes and Vaporizers

If nicotine patches don’t work for you, consider investing in an e-cigarette or a vaporizer. These products allow you to smoke just like you would be with a cigarette but, because they’re electronic, you don’t have to worry about damaging your lungs with tar. They can be great transitional tools to help you quit smoking for good.

4. Air Fresheners

Finally, I wanted to mention another simple product that can make a big difference: an air freshener. If you smoke at home, your room probably has a familiar smell of cigarettes. This can be an unwelcome reminder that tempts you to smoke again while you’re trying to quit.

Using air fresheners to get rid of that smell and replace it with a fresh, new smell can have real psychological benefits. They really can help you to quit.

      Good article. I tried to quit smoking several times but started again. Thanks for sharing these recommendations. I guess I’ll start with buying a vaporizer.

      Thanks for sharing these tips! I quit smoking cigarettes thanks to vaping. Vaping, if done correctly and in moderation, is a much safer alternative to traditional cigarette smoking. It can be difficult to kick the habit or avoid a smoke addiction but vaping helped me a lot. For example, here is the best concentrate vaporizer. Just give it a try.
