Being a smoker can impose some awkward demands on your life. You have to stop conversation and go outside to have a cigarette, and you can be downright intolerable if you aren’t able to smoke. If you are ready to finally kick this dangerous addiction, read on. This article contains plenty of techniques to help you stop smoking.

Quitting smoking is done not only for yourself, but also for your loved ones.

The people who care about you want you to have a long, healthy life. In the United States alone, cigarette smoking is responsible for 20 percent of all deaths. Do your best not to become a statistic.

Plan on stopping three times. The first technique to implement should be to quit cold turkey. Even though you might only have a five percent chance of success, you could be the one person out of twenty who is successful. Next, try cutting back gradually. If that doesn’t work, embark on a more comprehensive strategy. Consult your doctor on prescription treatment options or try joining a support group.

Follow a smart diet. You shouldn’t try to diet during the same time that you’re trying to quit smoking. Maintain a healthy, balanced diet. Smoking effects the taste of fresh fruits, fresh vegetables and some dairy products. By consuming these things, you’ll give yourself a health boost and you will tend to smoke less as well.

When attempting to quit smoking, reward yourself for every milestone that you pass. An example intermediate goal may be to go a week without having a smoke. When you do so, go out to see a new movie or play you’ve been meaning to watch. After a longer period of time, you can treat yourself to something more expensive or elegant. Continue working towards these smaller goals until you find you can go without smoking indefinitely.

Give yourself a reward if you complete a full day without smoking a cigarette. Eat your favorite meal or buy something for yourself on days that you don’t smoke. This will help you forget about nasty old cigarettes, and focus instead on the positive outcome of quitting.

Take your journey one day at a time. To stop smoking is a process. Don’t worry about tomorrow, next month or even next year. Just go through it one day at a time, just getting rid of the smoking habit in the short term.

Replace smoking with another (albeit healthier) vice, regardless of what the critics say. Quitting for anyone but yourself is not always the best path. If someone is rude to you about quitting smoking, try and ignore them. Do it for yourself and you will find that it is infinitely more gratifying.

Talk to those who you are close with about the impact of smoking in your life and your decision to quit. They will be there for whatever you need and can remind you of your plans to quit. Using a good support system is beneficial when quitting. This can help you achieve your gaol.

If you have struggled time and time again with quitting smoking, consider scheduling an appointment with your doctor. These days there are many medications that can help to ease your efforts to quit smoking. Your doctor probably can also offer information about hot-lines, support groups and other resources that will increase the likelihood that you will be able to quit.

Tell your family and friends, if you plan on quitting smoking. Just by letting them know what you are attempting to do, they will be able to be a support team for you and assist you in staying motivated and fighting temptations. Their support will be a big boost in helping you on the road to stopping smoking once and for all.

During stressful times, smoking may have been your crutch. If you are a person who does this, find a new technique for dealing with everyday stress levels. Meditation, yoga and deep breathing techniques are all a great way to help relieve stress and stay smoke-free.

Construct a list of reasons why you want to kick your smoking habit. Ensure that every item, no matter how big or small, is included. Consult your list of reasons when you are about to smoke. That will help you to remember what is important, and will reinforce your dedication to quitting.

Many people who are creative have found that having a detailed diary can really help with their battle to quit smoking. Most of the time people smoke to relax or to help calm their nerves. Writing your thoughts down in a journal is a much healthier way of getting pent up stress, anxiety and depression out of your mind. As an added bonus, it is free.

Sleep is your friend when you are quitting smoking. Don’t allow yourself to become overly fatigued. When your body is telling you that you need to sleep, listen. Sleeping can help pass the time during a difficult nicotine withdrawal. Extra sleep can also help your body heal itself.

It takes commitment to get through the process of quitting, meaning you need to make the decision to do so. Failure to successfully quit can often be attributed to not keeping the right mental attitude and simply resigning to giving up. It’s possible to remain committed by thinking about the reasons you want to quit.

As you can see, there are a number of things you can do to help you in your quest to stop smoking. As you learn what works and what doesn’t, you may find it easier to kick the smoking habit. Use what you’ve read here to ensure you’re able to quit for good

Kansas ready to snuff out e-cigarette sales to minors

Health risks of smokeless alternative are hazy, but for some the state’s ban isn’t strict enough.


A Kansas law goes into effect Sunday prohibiting the sale of electronic cigarettes to minors.

That’s fine with some distributors — they say they already do that — but it doesn’t go far enough for some anti-tobacco groups.

They would like e-cigarettes to fall under the same public regulations as tobacco, at least until more research is done.

“We don’t know the specific health risks,” said Jodi Radke, director of the Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids’ Rocky Mountain and Great Plains region.

But e-cigarettes are significantly less harmful than actual cigarettes because they simply have fewer ingredients, said Ray Story, president of the Tobacco Vapor Electronic Cigarette Association.

“A person with bad breath emits more things in one exhale than an individual that smokes an e-cigarette,” he said.

E-cigarettes don’t actually have tobacco in them, but they do contain cigarettes’ addictive ingredient — nicotine.

On the outside, e-cigarettes often look like real ones but they’re heavier. They’re powered by a lithium-ion battery and have a chamber where the nicotine, stored in a separate cartridge, is heated up and converted to a vapor. E-cigarettes also light up at the tip like real cigarettes.

E-cigarettes are being marketed in many ways, including as a method of enjoying the smoking experience in areas where real cigarettes are banned or as a cessation aid for smokers.

Ellyn Warford is one example.

Warford, assistant manager at My Smokeless Deluxe, an electronic cigarette kiosk in Oak Park Mall, smoked for seven years before using e-cigarettes to quit. They don’t hurt her eyes like real cigarettes do, she said, and she doesn’t smell like smoke anymore.

The relatively new product also comes in flavors like fruit and candy, though, which prompted concerns — including among lawmakers — about children wanting to try them. Some have even been designed to resemble USB drives or pens.

Doug Jorgensen, president of Kansas’ Alcoholic Beverage Control, said he received phone calls from school resource officers asking how they could regulate e-cigarettes because students were bringing them into class and onto school grounds.

Jorgensen’s office will oversee enforcement of the new regulations in Kansas. Missouri has not taken a similar step.

Several schools in Johnson County said they haven’t had problems with students “lighting up” e-cigarettes, although some are starting to include e-cigarettes in their smoking policies.

Warford said her kiosk doesn’t get too many younger customers. The client base mostly falls between the ages of 30 and 50, and many of them are smokers looking for a way to quit.

Starter kits, which usually include the e-cigarette itself with cartridges and chargers, usually run anywhere from $60 to $150. Replacement cartridges usually cost between $10 and $30.

There doesn’t seem to be a state-level push yet in Missouri or Kansas to place e-cigarettes under smoking bans or other restrictions to which actual cigarettes are subject.

Jorgensen and Thompson said they didn’t think e-cigarettes fit under smoking bans because there’s no smoke being emitted from them — just vapor….More at Kansas ready to snuff out e-cigarette sales to minors – Kansas City Star
