Attention, smokers! According to the American Cancer Society, every year smoking cigarettes kills more Americans than alcohol, car accidents, suicide, AIDS, homicide, and illegal drugs combined. Furthermore, unlike many other causes of death, death from smoking is entirely preventable. So, are you ready to quit yet?
Nothing can make it easy, but these stage-setting steps can help ensure that you’ll achieve your goal.
Step 1. Mark your calendar. Get ready by choosing the day you will quit smoking. Many people have found that making the date meaningful, such as a loved one’s birthday or anniversary, helped them take this first big step.
Step 2. Set up a smoke-free environment. Get rid of all ashtrays, and clean your home and car(s) from top to bottom. Also, declare a strict no-smoking policy for family members, visitors, and vehicle passengers. When your surroundings are spic-and-span, you’ll be less tempted to sully the air.
Step 3. Pinpoint your craving times and triggers. Often, the urge to light up is strongest first thing in the morning, after your body has been without nicotine for hours. As for triggers, picking up the phone, sitting down with a cup of coffee, or being in a stressful situation may all scream, “I need a cigarette—now!”
Step 4. Now go! Tell your family and friends that you’re quitting. Find friends or coworkers who also want to quit, and tackle the project together. Consider joining a formal support group, and line up a smoking-cessation hotline that you can call in a pinch (you’ll find dozens of them on the Internet).
