Quitting is no easy task

Both cigarettes and vaping are incredibly addictive, which is why it can be so hard to quit. But it is a decision that you have to make for yourself.

Here are some tips that may help you.

Make a plan

Figure out how you will fight your cravings and pick a goal date, with benchmark check-ins along the way to check your progress.

Call on your circle of support

Your support circle is there to support you, so use them! Tell them what your plan is and ask them to help you. They can check in on you, help you plan activities to keep your mind off of smoking and talk to you when the cravings may become difficult to avoid.

Make a Pro List

There are a lot of benefits that wait for you once you have quit. Make a list of all the things that you can look forward to, like having healthier lungs, clothes that don’t smell like smoke and a mouth that doesn’t taste like stale cigarettes.

Prepare craving busters

Cravings are going to pop up, so it’s important to have a list of craving busters to help get you through them. When a craving pops up, pick something from your list!

  • Take a walk
  • Go for a jog
  • Get your yoga on
  • Chew a piece of gum
  • Call someone in your support circle
