Sometimes the first trial to quit smoking turns out successfully, but actually this is the rare case. The general case is that the first trial to quit smoking is the beginning of a long road of struggle, till finding some suitable way that helps you to quit smoking.
When you try for your first time to quit smoking, and you fail because of any reason, you accept this because we all believe that there are very few lucky people who can make it from the first time. Then you establish a second trial, but when it fails too, you feel a little bit regretful…But you still can establish a third trial! And when it fails too, you start feeling that there must be something wrong, and you try to analyze what’s happening, so you might succeed the next time, you establish a forth trial, but when you fail once more, you feel so bad, and realize one truth that you can’t overcome your cravings to smoking.
What makes this mess happen is the advice that smokers get from websites, books or even others’ experiences, like those who tell you to quit smoking by eliminating all the means of smoking from your house, or those who tell you to make a punishment to yourself for smoking, and a reward for not smoking, or others who completely miss the point by saying that you can try the electronic cigarettes or nicotine patches.
Even if these tips worked with some people, it’s not because these tips are amazing or that they get to the point, of course not, because the real reason is that these people really wanted to quit smoking, and they insisted to achieve this, not because they listened to some advice or that someone of their friends or family wanted them to do so.
Sometimes it begins with some people by feeling that they smoke too much, and that they’re not feeling good while doing this, so they decide to cut down the number of cigarettes they smoke daily, then they reach a level that they feel comfortable with, when they reach this state they try asking themselves: Can I reduce that number another time, if they can’t then they try getting used to the level they’re in. After a few weeks, they try asking themselves the same question again, if the answer this time was a yes, then they start reducing then reducing, till they kick smoking out of their lives forever.
My last advice to you is this: Never punish yourself for smoking, deal with it like any other things happen out of your hands like having a messy hair or breaking your leg, because it’s not the right thing to do when you suddenly need to smoke, so you smoke, then while smoking you keep thinking of how you’re going to punish yourself, that will make it worse, but when you can manage it easily with yourself, you will successfully reduce the amount of cigarettes gradually, till you end the smoking habit, and even if you couldn’t end it, you know you’re a few steps away from doing that. 電子煙
