The first step is to search all the pockets, drawers and cupboards and get rid of even the most secret stocks. How to reduce smoking or even quit for good and get rid of your cravings in your head? The nicotine addiction is not a myth and 97% of smokers won’t succeed with their strong will only.
A cigarette while drinking your morning coffee on the balcony, on the way to the bus stop or while having a glass of wine with friends in the evening. When I’m done with this task, when I have my lunch, after work. To be able to focus, for better digestion, to be able to relieve myself. Do you recognize your ritual among all of those?
I want to quit but a gum is not enough for me
When we start doing one of our usual activities, our bodies long for a little dose of happiness in the form of a cigarette. Physical addiction can be managed in some cases. However, in case of a really strong addiction it is useful to be ready and have some anti-smoking device at hand. It can be a gum, spray or nicotine lozenges. It will help your body to appease the need for nicotine and you can repeat that several times a day. However, your head can’t be deceived that easily as strong mental bond to habits and rituals may be the reason it hadn’t worked out with the gums so far and your previous attempts to quit had failed.
How to boost the change in your head
