So, how do we get on that path to successfully quitting? The most important rule is: Never take another puff. One cigarette can start you off again on the smoking habit. So it’s all or nothing! But don’t set yourself an unmeasurable target. Take it one step at a time, even if you only measure success in hours at first. You may promise to stop smoking forever, but how will you know when you’ve reached your target? Better to celebrate an hour, a day or a week smoke-free.
And remember, if the health effects don’t scare you, consider your finances. Smoking damages not only your health, but it severely affects your wallet too.
