Let’s quit! How to make stopping smoking a little easier



Congratulations on deciding to kick your smoking habit to the curb. You're probably already looking forward to better skin, better-smelling clothes, better teeth (and breath), along with a much healthier lifestyle in general.

Whether you’ve only just embarked on your quitting journey or you’re currently several weeks in, you’re probably aware of how difficult and challenging quitting smoking can be. Hopefully, you’ve already reached out to you GP and gotten some help from them, or you may have joined some support groups or asked your family to support you. But what else can you do to make things a little easier?

Believe it or not, there are plenty of other ways you can embrace your quitting journey and finally quit cigarettes for good. Read on for how to make stopping smoking, a little easier.

Try switching to vape
If you’re slowly cutting down on your cigarettes and struggling with your nicotine cravings, then switching to vaping products might be the answer – check out 88 vape for the latest vaping products such as pens, liquids and e-cigs. Some smokers switch to vaping because it not only helps them give up their cigarette addiction, but you also get to enjoy a nicotine craving without the harmful smoke or dangerous chemicals.

Breathe
Cravings can last for as long as twenty minutes. That's a long time and battling through it is incredibly difficult. Breathing techniques have been proven to help ease nicotine and smoking cravings. A long intake of breath followed by a deep exhale is similar to pulling on a cigarette and then dispersing the smoke. Focusing on your breathing and even meditation can also help you gain control of your cravings until they pass.

Distract yourself with a new habit
I don’t mean something just as harmful! If you enjoy a cigarette when you wake up, try introducing a new workout regime or a run into your morning instead. If you like to enjoy a smoke after your lunch at work, go for a walk around the block instead. If you feel as though you want to put something in your mouth, then switch cigarettes for lollipops or even a straw.

Say goodbye to those reminders
It’s not easy to forget about something if you have reminders around you all the time. Ashtrays, cigarette packets and stubs, lighters, tobacco packets, even the smell of smoke on your clothes, curtains and upholstery. Get rid of everything you can that reminds you of smoking and deep clean your home!
