“Quit Smoking” is the slogan of the hour. We all know that smoking is hazardous to health. It has very severe ill effects like respiratory problems, lung cancer, breast cancer, bronchitis, emphysema, reproductory problems, etc. It is thus the need of the hour that we should free our selves from the clutches of the deadly disease. But it is not an easy task to actually quit smoking completely once a person has started it. Smoking makes a person its slave and he becomes addict to its use.
Difficult but not impossible
It is though difficult but not impossible to quit smoking because the word impossible itself says “i-m-possible”. The most important attribute that a person needs to have to quit smoking is self-belief and persistence. It is difficult to stay away from smoking in initial stages but with the help of adequate medical aid and strong will power if a person overcomes the initial bouts to smoke, then he will be the master over this deadly disease. He should love himself and not let the ill effects of smoking show on the god’s greatest creation.
As a stimulant to help him quit smoking a person should regularly exercise and meditate. This keeps him physically fit and mentally strong. He should also take proper diet, because proper diet not only satisfies the body’s needs but promises to deliver a trim and healthy you, producing undeniable pride and happiness in your body, mind and spirit.
Chain smokers should delay the next cigarette .In the meantime they should keep their hands busy and minds diverted from the thoughts of smoking. They should drink water to keep cool and calm and resort to deep breathing. If still the urge is irresistible they can resort to use of chewing gums or fake cigarettes or herbal cigarettes.
Seek Specialists help
Also a person can take help of an acupuncture specialist or he may occasionally go for aromatherapy. A person should also bring a major change in his routine to be on the smoke cessation wagon. He may change the route to his office, should take tea for coffee, should avoid the company of smokers, etc.
Thus we should all come together and make concerted efforts to bring the smoking addiction to its knees. All the smokers out there should take a vow this minute that they will buy no more cigarettes. Rather they will expense that money on their children, families, and their own health, which mean much more to them.
