Get In The Best Shape Yet – No Gym Required: http://go.seniorityhealth.com/senio3e77
You see, if you’ve been struggling with losing belly fat and low energy levels, all while continuing to smoke cigarettes, you’ve been holding yourself back from the body any man deserves.
So, I’m here today to break down my 5 methods To Quit Smoking. Let’s get started:
Method #1 – 0:19 – Make Peace With & Accept Your Cravings
In his “the secret to self control” TEDx Talk, Jonathan Bricker breaks down “acceptance and commitment therapy”
You see, you need to first understand that regardless what kind of smoker you think you are, you have cravings for cigarettes. Just like cravings for sugary, salty, unhealthy foods in your diet. It’s futile to try and just turn off your cravings as well because, at the end of the day, you can’t treat them like a light switch – there isn’t just an “on” or “off” mode.
So, stop playing tug-of-war with your “craving monster,” because you will always lose. As Jonathan mentions – “Drop the rope. Let the monster just exist in your body. He will eventually go away.”
Method #2 – 1:17- Utilize nicotine withdrawal products to gradually taper down use like E-cigarettes and vaporizers.
A study conducted by the Society for the Study of Addiction found that “Among vapor store customers in the United States who use electronic nicotine delivery devices to stop smoking, vaping longer, using newer-generation devices and using non-tobacco and non-menthol flavored e-liquid appear to be associated with higher rates of smoking cessation.”
There’s also: Nicotine gum and nicotine patches designed strategically to decrease your nicotine intake slowly.
Remember that you cannot substitute the gum or patches as a replacement – the point is to introduce a pattern interrupt in your routine to decrease the overall want or need to smoke.
Method #3 – 2:15 – Handling A Cigarette Craving
5-minutes…Once a craving hits, focus on just making it five minutes, if you can go five minutes, the craving will be reduced a.k.a. You’ll let the ‘craving monster’ just be. When a craving strikes, text or call a friend to talk about it.
Method #4 – 2:40 – What To Do If You End Up Having A Cigarette
Don’t finish the pack – throw it away once you regain control. Re-evaluate your plan. Maybe you need to taper your nicotine down more gradually instead of abruptly trying to quit cold turkey or with a drastic decrease in nicotine usage.
Method #5 – 3:08 – As a last resort: Quarantine Yourself.
You can get medical help if you absolutely cannot quit. You can also just hire someone to care for you, provide food & supplies, however, not let you out of your home for 30 days. This is the most extreme measure, but you will literally die if you cannot quit. It’s 30 days of solitude versus not living another day…
Caution – Many people gain weight when they stop smoking! To avoid unwanted weight gain, start developing new healthy habits to replace smoking and to keep your health momentum going.
