Quit smoking on a daily basis. There is no need to dwell on stopping forever; simply resolve to quit smoking for the day you are in right now. Reaching your goal one day at a time is easier to deal with mentally and physically. As each day passes, extend your timeline a little more into the future.
Make sure that you get an ample amount of rest when you are working to quit smoking. For many smokers, staying up for extended hours can lead to increased cravings. Many times, there is nobody around during late night hours, which makes it easier to sneak in a couple puffs. If you get a full nights sleep, it helps to stay focused and avoid cravings.
Your doctor can help you quit smoking. Some medications can make it easier to quit smoking. Also ask your doctor for a list of support groups, therapists and any other resources that may be helpful to you.
