If you’re this kind of smoker, you’re probably no longer getting much satisfaction from your habit. Unlike people who smoke for pleasure, you might not miss it too much if you stopped. The following tips can help break those ingrained smoking patterns:
If you’re not ready to give up completely yet, try cutting down gradually. Smoke fewer cigarettes each day or only smoke them halfway down. Inhale less often and less deeply. After several months it should be easier to stop completely.
Change your smoking routines to make yourself more aware of when and how much you’re smoking. Keep your cigarettes in a different place. Smoke with your opposite hand. Don't do anything else while smoking. Limit smoking to certain places, such as outside or in one room at home.
When you want a cigarette, wait one minute. Think of something else to do instead of smoking.
Be aware of every cigarette you smoke. Ask yourself: Do I really want this cigarette?
