How to Finally Quit Smoking

Chiropractic physician and clinical hypnotherapist Scott Lewis offers five tips to help you finally quit your smoking habit for the Gay American Smoke Out.



TIP 2: Set a Doable Quit Date
Once you’ve acknowledged that you do indeed want to be a nonsmoker and have identified your reason or reasons why, it’s important to set a quit date that you can prepare for. While quitting cold turkey is successful for some, many experts advocate setting a specific quit date and allotting time to prepare to become a nonsmoker. It’s also important that your quit date is at a time in your life when you’re not experiencing any unusual amount of stress. Since stress is one of the major factors for relapse in those who have quit, it’s a good idea to set a quit date when you can concentrate on being a nonsmoker.
