A little practical advice as you quit smoking: 1. Commit to your quit! Once you put them down, forget that you ever smoked. Find other, healthier ways to cope. 2. Be real! You won't die from craving a cigarette. You won't go crazy and the world won't end. Do NOT allow yourself to make a mountain out of your quit. 3. Give it time. Your body time to heal...your brain time to reprogram....yourself time to adjust to being a quitter. 4. Take better care of yourself. Start good habits and surround yourself with all you love. Give yourself the gift of life. 5. Don't take life so seriously!! Laugh, giggle, chortle, and guffaw. Life is just better when you laugh. 6. It's your quit so do it your way. You are the one who knows you best so quit your way. If whining makes you feel better, whine away. NRT it if you want to. Have a plan or wing it. Totally up to you. Bottom line? Thousand of people quit every day. If they can do it, if we can do it, so can you!! Believe in yourself.
