Don't Go It Alone! Read These Stop Smoking Tips!

If you are trying to stop smoking, having the right motivation is key. The benefits that will come about after you stop are enormous. One or many of them may be just enough to urge you on when things start to get difficult. The benefits of quitting include increased financial and physical health. The health of your family is also improved. Keep reading to quit smoking. Consider using a nicotine replacement-type of therapy. This type of therapy aims to reduce the symptoms of nicotine withdrawal, including depression, restlessness, and irritability. The cravings can be overwhelming. Nicotine replacement therapies may help you overcome these cravings while reducing the amount of nicotine in your body. People who use these products have twice as much likelihood of quitting for good as those who go cold turkey. However, do not use those products if you are still smoking.

TIP! Now is the time to stop smoking. Decide to quit today instead of setting your quit date in the future.
A lot of people have an oral fixation and that's the reason that they smoke. If this pertains to you, then you simply need to find other methods to calm that fixation. Many people suggest gum or hard candies to do this. An electronic cigarette has helped many others overcome nicotine dependency. Partner up with people that are trying to quit smoking. If you have a friend who is also attempting to quit, then partner up with this person and provide support to each other. On top of creating a support system, the two of you can find alternative activities to replace your smoking habits together. The ups and downs that you each encounter are things you can share with each other, making the process of finding what works easier.
TIP! Quit smoking gradually. Quitting cold turkey is definitely not recommended.
Frame quitting smoking as something you are doing for yourself, rather than to yourself. This positive frame of mind keeps your eyes on the prize and increases your chance of quitting successfully. Try to mentally picture how much better your life will be, in so many different dimensions, without cigarettes. Repeating these ideas to yourself will help you maintain your motivation and dedication. Keep your motivation for quitting on your mind all the time. This may mean pinning motivational messages on your office wall, or wearing a bracelet that symbolizes your intentions. This can curb your temptations, which are the primary culprits for smoking cigarettes.
TIP! You can start working out, so that you can avoid weight gain when quitting smoking, and to keep your mind off the cigarettes. Exercising will make your stress disappear.

A major factor in terms of quitting will be your positive thinking and your motivation to quit. All you need do is realize how your life is going to be so much better once you have finally quit. Think about how much better your breath will be, how clean your teeth will be, or how much better your house will smell. If the side effects of smoking are not enough to motivate you, think about the many different benefits. Let your friends and acquaintances know you're trying to quit. If many people know you have stopped smoking they will help hold you accountable. You will try to avoid disappointing those people, or falling short of their belief in you. This could be exactly the motivation that you need when the going gets tough.

TIP! The most important thing to do when you want to stop smoking is to make that initial commitment to the change. Make up your mind that your life as a non-smoker begins today.

Your loved ones will almost certainly support your desire to kick a bad habit and get moving with a healthier lifestyle. Ask them to provide you with encouragement and not criticism. Let them know that you'll be moody at the beginning, since your thinking won't be as clear. It is not an easy task to stop smoking and you should make sure your loved one supports you during this process. At least until you are stronger and less affected by those around you, stick to places that do not allow smoking. Try going to the museum or movies with friends. If you go to have a coffee, sit inside instead of on the smoking patio. You can beat cravings by not being around smoking.

TIP! You may have to make at least three attempts to quit smoking. On the first day, attempt to quit cold turkey.

Plan ahead for how you will handle stressful events that might arise. Lighting a cigarette is, for many smokers, an instant reaction to a stressful event. Having a plan in mind for how to handle those stressful moments makes it less likely that you will turn to cigarettes when stress strikes. Having multiple ideas to fall back on in the event the first one does not help enough is an even better plan. Determination, drive, and motivation are what will take you from smoker to ex-smoker. Review your reasons for quitting smoking on a regular basis, so that you don't lose motivation and give up. Follow the advice you read, so that you can stop smoking for good.

Catalina Clouser, Pot-Smoking Mother, Drives Off With Baby On Roof

PHOENIX, June 2 (Reuters) - A marijuana-smoking woman was arrested on Saturday in Phoenix after she accidentally drove away with her five-week-old son in a child safety seat on the roof of her vehicle, police said.

The baby fell off the car in the middle of an intersection and was found unharmed and strapped into the seat, said Phoenix police spokesman James Holmes.

The mother Catalina Clouser, 19, was booked into jail on child abuse and aggravated assault charges, he said. The infant was taken to a local hospital as a precaution and is in the custody of state Child Protective Services.

"It appears the suspect put the baby on the roof of the car and drove off, forgetting he was still on the roof," Holmes said in a written statement.

Police said Clouser and her boyfriend had been smoking marijuana in a park and left with the toddler to buy beer late on Friday night. Officers stopped the car and the boyfriend was arrested for suspicion of driving under the influence while driving with the baby in the 2000 Ford Focus.

Absolutely terrible! what do you think? please comment below..

Sanerton Leading The Way Against Tobacco Addiction

Sanertown is among the leaders of the world in the struggle against tobacco addicion

Few other malls on this planet have gone this far to protect their customers, employees, neighbors and everybody else from the effects of smoking as has this mall, and it really is something the whole area and the town should be proud of.  The mall's management is doing a thing like this - an absolute final ban on tobacco and tobacco products throughout the whole property - without regard to their own financial welfare.  They know as well as anybody else does that they will surely lose at least some customers, and possibly quite a few customers, to their own public spiritd, morality-based policy of allowing no smoking whatever on the premises, even though they know perfectly well that some folks will stay home who would otherwise have come to their mall that night.  If we saw more public spiritedness like this among regular people and shop-owners, we would be much father ahead in this strubble against smoking than we are. No Smoking Day event at Sangertown

A state Department of Health program called Bridges to Prevent Tobacco cleared the air for World No Tobacco Day Thursday.

The group set up a display at Sangertown Square, which recently enacted a property-wide no smoking policy.

“The department of health realizes that protecting people from secondhand smoke saves the state thousands of dollars,” said Sue Casanova, coordinator for the Bridges program.

World No Tobacco Day was started by the World Health Organization to educate area leaders and the public about the tobacco industry.

These programs mentioned here are good, because it always helps to educate people about the evils of smoking.  There can never be too many such programs, because, even though you would think the message had penetrated everybody's head by now, it does not seem to have done so.  The proff is that people still smoke.  We also need a little coercion, so to speak, of simply not allowing smoking in numerous places that are public.  The fact that anti-smoking is now the prevalent mode is good., because it sets upthe world in an augthoritarian manner that people just have to respect.  This is especially true for preventing children from taking up the habit.

In addition to World No Tobacco Day, Thursday marked the first day of the implementation of the mall’s new no smoking policy.

Earlier this year, Pyramid Management Company, LLC, the company that owns the mall, announced that all of its properties, inside and out, would become 100 percent tobacco free.

“We strongly believe that this policy will not only support our employees and guests who are sensitive to secondhand smoke, but those who are trying to quit as well,” said Alison Ryan Cahalan, marketing director of Sangertown Square. “It’s inclusive of the entire property inside, outside, all entry points, all hallways, sidewalks, parking lots, construction areas. It applies to our property as a whole.” Read te full story about Sangertown No Smoking Day..

I hope the example that Sangertown is setting has inspired you as much as it has impressed me.  What do you think?  Do you agree with me as about making it illegal to smoke in certain public areas?  My instinct tells me it is right, because some people need that, but I realize others have good reason to differ.  Please let me know - maybe you will convince me!
