Simpson Financial Group  Preparing for life’s uncertainties

No SmokingSmoking can lead to cancer, and cancer is one of the leading causes of death in the United States.

If you are trying to quit smoking, then it's important that you remain smoke-free. Doing so can protect your health and help you live a longer life. Unfortunately, smoking is an addiction, and quitting requires effort on your part.

Understand What Causes You to Crave a Cigarette

Smokers generally take up cigarettes on triggers. For example, you might smoke after eating or following an emotional event.

The first step in remaining smoke-free is understanding what triggers your desire to smoke. When you know your triggers, you can prepare for the cravings that come after these events happen.

Remain Busy to Keep Your Mind Off Smoking

Another way to reduce your compulsion to smoke is to remain busy. When you are busy, the desire to smoke isn't overwhelming. Instead, you can focus on the task at hand. This can sometimes keep you steadfast in your ability to remain smoke-free.

To remain busy, consider focusing on a hobby, or spending more time with your friends and family.

Get An Accountability Partner

An accountability partner is someone who will help you meet your goal of not smoking.

While your accountability partner will keep your goals in the forefront of your mind, you can also talk with them when quitting becomes challenging. With an accountability partner, you increase your chances of remaining smoke-free.

Celebrate Your Successes

When you take on any endeavor, it's essential that you reward yourself. Rewards reinforce positive behaviors. In this instance, remaining smoke-free is a positive behavior. This behavior is achievable if you reward yourself for overcoming your smoke cravings.

You ultimately give your body an adjustment period by rewarding yourself for positive actions. This adjustment period will help make smoking but a fleeting thought in your mind, instead of a full-on craving. Of course, remember to choose healthy, safe rewards in order to protect yourself.

Remind Yourself About the Benefits of Being Smoke-Free

One of the easiest ways to get through a difficult craving is to remind yourself of your goals.

The health benefits of remaining smoke-free motivate many people to avoid smoking. You'll reduce your chances of developing cancer and other threatening diseases. You'll also save on health insurance and life insurance costs, which help to improve your life and the lives of your family members.

While quitting smoking is commendable, it's essential that you remain a quitter. Follow these simple tips to remain smoke-free.
