Stop Smoking Programs

By: Richard Adams

Giving up smoking is one of the hardest habits of all to break and while the odd person gets lucky and finds quitting the easiest thing in the world, most of us need all the help we can get.

And this is of course where a wide range of stop smoking programs come in.

There are essentially two elements to breaking the smoking cycle. One of these is getting rid of the nicotine dependency, the other being breaking the physical habit.

Generally it only takes 2-3 days to rid your body for 90%+ of the nicotine so this tends to be the easier of the two to break.

Amusingly, when you consider it, most stop smoking programs actually focus specifically on this nicotine withdrawal element.

Smoking patches, inhalers and nicotine gum all serve to replace the nicotine in your cigarettes with nicotine in another form.

The only real gain therefore is that you stop the harmful toxins - tar and other cancer-causing agents - from entering your body but you are still, to all intents and purposes, hooked on smoking.

After that 2-3 day window has passed, when any possible nicotine withdrawal has faded, the element trying to get you smoking again is your behaviour.

You get used to enjoying that first cigarette of the day or the one straight after dinner. Often cigarettes form an emotional prop to support us in times of stress or sadness.

All of these are the behavioural element at work and are far harder to break.

So stop smoking programs that deal directly with these aspects tend to be far more successful and lead to far longer-term results.

Stop smoking programs in this area may include hypnosis, reading books or deliberate behaviour adjustment based on the advice of experts and it is this type of product I recommend you start off with.

These aids will help you understand the triggers in your mind. You will learn effortlessly *what* causes you to want to smoke and how to change this emphasis so you no longer feel that you need a cigarette in these cases.

By going down this route, you take away the potential pain and discomfort of quitting smoking. Too many people are nervous about stopping. They'd like to do it, but are very wary about how unpleasant it is going to be and how much will power it will take. To many people it's the hardest thing they've ever tried.

But that's the old school method.

By changing your behaviour you will find it surprisingly easy to stop smoking. Withdrawal symptoms will be minor at worst. You'll sail through it and wonder what everyone else finds so hard and about giving up the weed!

It really is a whole new experience I can assure you. And that's coming from someone who has tried both ways. I used to try the old methods and could barely manage 12 hours of unbelievable discomfort before I gave in (again) and had a cigarette. Then one day I managed to quit without any side effects at all and I was literally shocked at how different an experience it was.

So don't waste a minute. You're online, looking for a solution to help you stop smoking. Make the most of it. Make today the day you find your solution. Get looking for stopping smoking behavioural books.
