Stop Smoking Now!

Stopping smoking can be so difficult and so overwhelming. There are so many stop smoking systems and detox programs. Every smoker needs a different system to quit smoking for good. A few different types of smokers are:

It is simply time to stop smoking. I know this is hurting me and I want to take the control back. I am eating better, exercising, and have already reduced my smoking. I just need some help to get past those worst days of nicotine withdrawal.
I started smoking once or twice a week, then once or twice a day and now it is increasing, steadily. I think I could put them down if I could go one or two weeks without smoking, but I am thinking about them more often, now.
I started smoking cigarettes when I was in college to lose weight. Now that I am older, I am afraid to stop smoking because I don’t want to gain weight. I often skip either breakfast, lunch or sometimes both. Now I am tired all the time; my original plan is not working anymore.
I only smoke when I go out with my friends and have a few beers. Smoking looks cool, I enjoy it and all of my friends are doing it; however, I seem to be increasing the amount and times I am smoking.
Smoking makes me feel better. Sometimes, I feel it is my only friend … it is always there for me when I need it and I need it a lot. If I stopped using it, how would I deal with the negative thoughts, feelings, and pain inside of my head?
Smoking helps me focus and stay on task. When I stop smoking, I feel fuzzy headed, dizzy and disoriented. Smoking is an important part of my life and I am not sure I want to give it up.
I have high blood pressure, high cholesterol, no energy, depressed, anxious, can’t sleep and feel like my health is spiraling downward. I need some help …  Other than smoking, I don’t even know what I am doing wrong.
Smoking is the only area of my life that I have total control over … and so far, smoking is not hurting my health.  IF it ever starts to hurt me, I will stop …
My smoking is a very personal pastime for me … I don’t like people that much and I definitely don’t like being in a group situation.
My Grandfather smoked cigarettes until he was 90 years old and cigarettes didn’t kill him! I can’t breathe too well, exercise, climb stairs or play tennis like I used to, but I’m not as bad as some people I see that are my age. I’ll quit if it ever starts to become a real problem.

Smoking out of habit, I often pick up a cigarette without even thinking about it: while driving, after dinner, before bed, first thing in the morning. I don’t know if I am addicted; it’s just a “part” of me but I can’t seem to reduce the amount I am smoking.
No one knows that I smoke cigarettes … not even my medical doctor or my insurance company. I’m tired of it and know that I may probably “miss the game of deception”.
My life is so boring, all I do at night is watch TV, play video games, eat and smoke. Sometimes, if I am between projects at work, I just smoke to pass the time.
At work, smoking gives me an excuse to take a break. At home, when my family annoys me, smoking gives me an excuse to be away from them … a way to claim my space and time.
I’ve been smoking for over 40 years and I’ve tried everything to stop! I feel like the cigarette is one of my appendages … my best friend … and I can’t give it up. I need a program that offers support and helps me understand why I am so hooked.
I hurt all the time. Smoking takes my mind off the pain and I think it helps me feel better. How could I deal with the pain if I did not smoke?
I smoke too much and my weight is out of control. I am worried about contracting diabetes or a heart-related illness. I stopped smoking once and started to gain weight. So, I started smoking again, but the weight did not go away! I need help to get back on track and learn how to eat in a way to bring all of my numbers back in line.

Why do people gain weight?

When a person stops the drug nicotine, the body becomes so relaxed that the metabolism slows down. At this point, if the person has poor eating patterns or habits, this is the formula for rapid weight gain to the “tune” of 20, 30, 50+ pounds!
