Smoking is one of the most addictive habits the universe would ever know and it gradually increases with time from one cigarette and before you know it, it’s a whole pack.

Smoking can gradually cause an addiction, sometimes making it hard for eradication. One becomes abnormally tolerant to and dependent on something that is psychologically or physically habit-forming.

Basically, regardless of what you think, once you get addicted to something you become mentally reliant on it a perfect example is smoking.

One might say that your addiction wouldn’t kill you, but truth be told if it isn’t killing you then it is hindering you from achieving/realizing something else.

Below are habits to engage in if you wish to quit smoking:

Have new friends

If your friends are smokers then you need to cut them off because you won’t stop the action when your friends are still in it. If you keep hanging out with friends who smoke, it will only worsen your urge to smoke more.

Clean Thoroughly

Ensure that your house, automobile and all other personal areas are clean from top to bottom. Smelling smoke will just make you want to smoke. Your sense of smell will improve the longer you go without smoking.

Find a new hobby

You can’t be idle and quit smoking; that’s a fatal lie, just like the old saying “an idle mind is the devil’s workshop”. Change your routines, look for new things that would excite you, take a walk or jog, exercise more often, just do something new and different and the yearn for a cigar might just go off gradually.

Seek professional help

Finally, this is needed. A professional can help you through the process of quitting. Seeking professional help would be the one thing you can do because talking eases feeling guilt. Through this medium, you can pour out your emotions and that is always the melting point to break any habit.
