If you desire to quit smoking cigarettes, you are likely in the position that many people who desire to quit find themselves in. If you are like most people, you are probably wondering what steps you should take, and what tools you should use, to stop smoking as soon as possible. Most people search for that single method that will be able to make their quitting strategies simple and easy. Before you get started with the quitting process, you should know that there is not a single method that you can implement to guarantee you will be able to stop smoking immediately.

Even though there is not a single method you can use to quit effectively, you should know that there is one strategy you can take advantage of that makes the process of quitting very easy to manage. This step requires that you make a plan that you can follow while you attempt to quit. By having a plan you can follow, you will be able to take the guessing out of your quitting process. In fact, people who develop a plan to help themselves quit are often more successful, because they know which steps they should take to ensure they will be able to quit.

When you are writing out the reasons why you are quitting, you should definitely keep in mind and record the primary reasons why you want to quit, but you should definitely incorporate the other reasons that are on the table that may be significant to you as well. When you are attempting to quit, and you find yourself thinking about smoking again, you can simply resort to this list in order to remember why you quit in the first place.

Once you have labeled the reasons why you should quit, you should also label the benefits you will obtain once you quit. Quitting smoking can improve your health and your life in many ways. If you find these benefits to be pleasing, you should definitely label them at this point in order to motivate yourself in the future.

Once you have performed these steps, you should make a list of the different tools and strategies you can take advantage of in order to make the quitting process very simple. There are many products you can take advantage of, as well as many strategies that you can use to make the process of quitting easy. If you write down these tools, you will be able to resort to them at a later date when you will find them to be the most helpful.

Even though all of the prior steps are incredibly important when it comes to quitting smoking, you should know that the people you have around you will likely affect your ability to quit smoking more than anything. You should write out a list of the people that can help you through the process of quitting. You should also write out a list of people you can hang out with while you are trying to quit. Everyone you list should be a person who will not trigger you into smoking. You should also make sure that none of the people you put on your list are smokers themselves. As long as you take this step, you will definitely have the support that you need in order to quit once and for all.

Reminding and reinforcing the benefits of stopping smoking is a great technique to help people to quit smoking. I have helped many people at my Sheffield hypnotherapy practice with this method. I also try to help people visualise what they think will be the difficult times when they are a non-smoker. I get them to visualise that post meal time when they used to smoke but I guide them through that time as a non-smoker and help them to see themselves successfully dealing with not smoking. I have found that combining the visualisations with the benefits can have great results. Great blog too, keep the info flowing!
