How to quit smoking?

“Winners never quit and quitters never win.”
                                     -- Vince Lombardi

This is not true always. It all depends on what is quit.

There are lots of reasons for smoking and very less for quitting smoking. If ever one needs the reason to quit smoking one can think of following:

  1. Just read the Statutory Warning “Smoking is Injurious to Health” on the cigarette packet and think why should I smoke?
  2. Watch the others smoke and start thinking why should I be a copycat?
  3. If ever there is craving for smoking, think of the smoke emitted by the vehicle.
  4. Never quit smoking for reason someone near and dear but for oneself, because when one is hurt he/she gets a reason to smoke.
  5. If there is post on how to quit smoking ignore it and stop such post by quitting smoking.

If nothing of the above works then let’s check Other Sides Now for smoking.

How to smoke quietly?
  1. Keep a match box or a lighter handy (not in the pocket).
  2. While going for a smoke take only friends who smoke.
  3. Smoke away from public places. This ensures minimum people staring at you.
  4. If at all any friends come to you while smoking just keep the cigarette aside and start abusing the person who left the cigarette there.
  5. If ever you think of smoking again read the above post "How to quit Smoking".

These are the some ways to QUIeTly smoke/ING…considering Both Sides Now.

And what of those who smoke *only* as an affectation? I refer to women (like me) who may smoke and do so in public only to make some stupid statement about being with it!!! How sorry is that?!

Most of the people who smoke start off with trying to just make a statement during their adolescence of how cool, hip, with it n all, they are! Once one realises the idiocy of the original reason to start smoking the quitting is easier.

#Neo: Wait for my next post ;)

#Shankari: Truly, most of the time it starts during adolescence as an affectation but it’s difficult to suddenly stop smoking if one takes the decision to quit smoking. It can be done with support from near / dear ones and by one’s will power.

And yes, once realising the idiocy of the original reason to start smoking, quitting is easier but again this requires will power.
