Addiction

  • If you are a member of that shrinking visible minority, smokers, and you are sick and tired of feeling defensive and guilty, take heart. This is a great time to quit! With the stress and overindulgence of the holiday season finally over, you can harness those feelings of guilt to make the New Year a time to start fresh, to invest in a longer, healthier life. Here are some proven suggestions to improve your chances of success.
  • The greatest cause of relapse is inadequate preparation. By committing to a definite quit date, and preparing for that deadline you are more likely to follow through. So how should you prepare? Many smokers are planning to quit in the near future but feel ambivalent. They are struggling with the discomfort of knowing the bad things about smoking, but are not yet ready to give up their relationship with tobacco or the comforting rituals of handling and putting something in their mouths. Here is some homework that might help. Make a couple of lists. Write down all the negatives of smoking and beside it make another list of all the benefits or positives you can think of. Only if you can convince yourself that the consequences outweigh the benefits will you have the motivation to do it right. Next make another double list, this time outlining the pros and cons of quitting.
  • While you are preparing to quit, keep track of your smoking: when do you light up? What's going on and how are you feeling at the time? This will help you choose other ways to handle those times and feelings. It will also flag some situations you might want to avoid early on.
