Throughout all these years, he attempted to quit here and there, using all different products to help him but was never successful Now when asked why, the reason why he managed to quit at age of 58? That was because of the birth of my youngest sister That gave him a very strong why which is To live as long as possible to look after his newborn at age of 58 now What is your why? Comment below and tell me what is your why? Why do you want to quit smoking? Why are you watching this? I would love to read them Now that you have this very strong why Blow it up And let’s go to battle ! In order for you to fight your enemy, first of all you need to understand your enemy Luckily your enemy “smoking addiction” has been studied by many many many experts ahead of you many many times, and this is a result that they found. Before I go into that I encourage you to take a pen and paper to write it down, so you learn Smoking addiction can be broken down into three components, which is number one, nicotine addiction number two, situation triggers number three, emotional triggers Knowing what our enemy is made up of, we can now smash down one by one Number one, nicotine addiction every cigarette contains nicotine Nicotine is a highly addictive substance I’m going to show you a diagram of what happens to your body when you smoke and quit smoking These are all nerve cells when you smoke Nicotine comes in to bind with your nerve cell and causes the nerve cell to release a type of chemical called the dopamine Dopamine causes you to become happy.
Because if you feel happy, you want to smoke more Thus, you smoke more and more nicotine is going to come into your bloodstream And causes more dopamine release and you’ll feel happy again Unfortunately, long-term stimulation of this nerve cell Actually creates more and more of these receptors, which all of them actually crave for nicotine and when you stop smoking Because there’s no nicotine here to bind with the receptors Thus causes less dopamine to release. This is where you have withdrawal symptoms like irritability, anxiety frustration and difficulty sleeping now the great news is The longer you don’t smoke All these receptors will actually die off and you return back to your normal state again, and you feel happy again Now knowing this ahead of time Recognizing that the body feels withdrawal symptoms is actually the body fighting to addiction and can help you So the withdrawal will actually only lasts two to three weeks and By the time you hit the third to fourth week mark you will notice that it gets easier and easier to say no to cigarettes If the withdrawal symptoms is unbearable you can use the help of nicotine replacement therapy also known as an NRT Researchers have shown that using NRT boost the chances of stopping smoking Now how does this NRT work? NRT releases just enough nicotine into your body without all the nasty chemicals that comes with a cigarette It binds on some of the receptors, but not all.
So it actually helps you ease of the withdrawal symptoms so you’ll be tossing around at this stage and as you taper off NRT, the receptors that is not bind with the nicotine will slowly die off and Eventually you will go back to your normal state again and you’re happy again NRT comes in different forms, mainly the slow release patches and the quick release inhalers Sprays, gums and lozenges, which is handy to stop the one to two minute cravings, which comes suddenly now besides NRT They are also quite a few prescription medication that you could use to help quit smoking Most importantly is to seek advice from your doctor to select the most appropriate treatment for you, as everyone is different number two situation triggers the way to combat this is to know what are the situation triggers that will cause you to pick up cigarette ahead of time and Have a plan to combat it To find out what are your situation triggers, the next time you pick up a cigarette Notice what did you do before and what are you doing after Where are you? What time of the day is it? who are you with write it all down and next to it, write down instead of smoking, what you are going to do if such an event happen For an example, if you notice that the first thing in the morning When you wake up, you reach out to the cigarette next to your bed then write down Throw away cigarettes, replace it with a glass of water drink water so, In the morning, when you wake up, instead of reaching out to the cigarette, you reach out for the water instead if you notice that if seeing your friends smokes make you want to smoke Then write down Try and avoid friends or Tell your friends that you are trying to quit smoking And ask them to help you out a little, not to smoke in front of you and If they refuse, you might not want to see them for a while, until you’re truly clear of cigarettes number three, Emotional triggers now this is very similar to the situation triggers except it is an emotion To find out what emotion causes you to smoke The next time you smoke, write it down as well and next to it write down what you’re going to do instead, if you experience this emotion again Say if feeling happy makes you want to smoke Then write down feel happy Call a friend if anxious makes you want to smoke Then write down feel anxious Put on running shoes and go for a run You might even want to put down all the to-do lists that you have been procrastinating for a while as what you’ll be doing when you experience the situation or emotional trigger This will help you get lots of things done Now remember, most people go through a few attempts before they quit successfully So don’t get discouraged, if you are unsuccessful for the first few times keep reinforcing yourself Why you want to quit and? blow it up and For some reason, if that why is no longer relevant to you Find and create another why Blow that up again As a conclusion decide on what method you want to use to quit with If you decide to use NRT or any prescription medication? Consult your doctor and pharmacist, get all your tools and support team ready if you are going cold turkey Remember the hardest part is the first two to three weeks Once you pass that stage Your withdrawal symptoms would cease and it becomes easier and easier for you to say no to the cigarette Set a date to start quit smoking such as next Monday the 3rd of August Tell everyone you’re quitting smoking and get their support and Even if they’re not supportive stuff them!! Seriously, it is your life not theirs Toss out all your cigarettes, wash all your blankets, pillows, jackets, clean your car, get rid of all the cigarette smell Work out all your situation triggers and your emotional triggers list them all out and list out what exactly you are going to do when you experience all these triggers Get emotionally and physically prepared for the day to arrive Hit the like button if you find this helpful Comment and tell me that yes.
