So Difficult to Stop Smoking

Shortly after you finish smoking a cigarette, your body begins to show signals of withdrawal. You begin to crave another cigarette to overwhelm these symptoms, beginning a vicious cycle of dependence. Most smokers experience the first signs of withdrawal within hours of their last cigarette

It might seem difficult to find new approaches to handle your stress. Do you catch a smoke when you’re feeling stressed or nervous? Strain, whether it’s from your work, relationships, caregiving burdens or simply plain fast paced living, can cause you to look for fast and easy alleviation. But in the long term, smoking will only enhance your stress. To successfully stop smoking, you might need to re think your stress management choices before you stop.

Consider these tips:

Stop and take a deep breath. Taking five to 10 deep breaths is a great beginning to pressure alleviation. In addition, you get the advantage of inhaling clean air into your lungs without those dangerous compounds!

Go for a walk. Physical activity can release a substance in your body that improves your mood and relieves tension. Walking for thirty minutes a day can be a healthy distraction, burn off extra calories and help your heart.

Try to relax. Pressure can make your muscles stressed. Relax them by stretching, deep breathing, doing yoga, obtaining a message or even closing your eyes and visualizing yourself in a peaceful area.

Call a buddy. Talking through your highs and lows with family, friends or maybe a support group may give you comfort and positive reinforcement.

Cut back on caffeine. Caffeine is a stimulant that may raise your heart rate along with your tension. When you’re attempting to manage your stress, caffeine can make you tense, keep you up at night and may even cause you to want to smoke.

Take care of your own body. Drink lots of water, eat healthy and get enough sleep. You’ll feel more energized and prepared to take care of pressure.
