No Smoking!

Smoking

Smoking still remains one of the leading cause of preventable death. Smoking has the dubious distinction of affecting all the systems from head to foot.

Following are some of the ways to Quit Smoking:

(1)If you want to cut down on your smoking gradually, try to: switch brands to one you find distasteful; smoke only half of each cigarette; smoke without inhaling; buy cigarettes by the pack, not the carton; hide your cigarettes in an inconvenient place; keep a smoking “record” of when you smoke and why, and try to eliminate the least important cigarettes.

(2)Once you’ve started to cut down, set a daily quota and reduce the number of cigarettes you smoke each day; increase your exercise; postpone your cigarette until you can go all day without one; smoke only in uncomfortable places; spend time where smoking is prohibited; do things that occupy your hands.

(3)Throw out your cigarettes, lighters, matches and ashtrays. Find someone to quit with you. To reinforce your decision, have your teeth cleaned; begin an exercise program; estimate how much money you will save.
