QUITTING FOR GOOD...

Congratulations!

 

Now you're ready to develop a new habit - not smoking. Like any other habit, it takes time to become a part of you; unlike most other habits, though, not smoking will take some conscious effort and practice. This section of the booklet can be a big help. You'll find many techniques to use for developing the nonsmoking habit and holding on to it.

By reading this section of the booklet carefully and reviewing it often, you'll become more aware of the places and situations that prompt the desire for a cigarette. You'll also learn about many nonsmoking ways to deal with the urge to smoke. These are called coping skills. Finally, you'll learn what to do in case you do slip up and give in to the urge.

Keep your guard up

 

The key to living as a nonsmoker is to avoid letting your urges or cravings for a cigarette lead you to smoke. Don't kid yourself - even though you've made a commitment not to smoke, you WILL sometimes be tempted. But instead of giving in to the urge, you can use it as a learning experience.

First, remind yourself that you've QUIT and you're a NON-smoker. Then, look closely at your urge to smoke and ask yourself:

Where was I when I got the urge? What was I doing at the time? Whom was I with? What was I thinking?

The urge to smoke after you've quit often hits at predictable times. The trick is to anticipate those times and find ways to cope with them - without smoking. Naturally, it won't be easy at first. In fact, you may continue to want a cigarette at times. But remember, even if you slip, it doesn't mean an end to the nonsmoking you. It does mean that you should try to identify what triggered your slip, strengthen your commitment to quitting, and try again.

Common triggers  :  people, places, events and stress.
