Start reducing the number of sticks eg,if you smoke 5 packets daily,you reduce to taking 4 packets for good one money and continue reducing till you get to only one packet,then start reducing by stick till you completely get over the craving urge


2. MAKE FOOD YOUR FRIEND: People who smoke a lot would normally tend to skip meals as nicotine releases stored sugars and fats into the bloodstream. Hence, make sure that you consume food at regular intervals and monitor your calorie intake. Keep it at a normal level. Do not over-eat or try to eat less. This would only lessen your concentration power and anxieties that arise due to fluctuating hunger levels.Mind the kinds of food you eats and increase your fruit intakes to help boost your immune  system to help fight the the urge power push.. For the first 3 days of your quitting, drink a lot of fruit juice that are acidic in nature. Cranberry juice is a great choice during this time and it would help the blood sugar levels to stabilize in your body for these 72 critical hours. However, over consumption of juices may make you become fat..Carrot and cabbage and fresh vegetables re recomme


3. DON’T THINK OF GOING BACK: When you experience emotional disturbances like depression, craving, denial, convincing yourself for another puff, complacency, acceptance, bargaining and anger, you are only on your success path to your recovery. These kinds of experiences are quite normal for a person who wants to quit smoking!When these begins to happen,try to put into your subconscious mind that you are winning the battle which with little more efforts you will conquer it all.Going back will only hurt you the more and by then you will believe you cant stop it again and that’s a big fat lie my dear,,,YES YOU CAN IF YOU ARE WILLING.I hope you know your believe over something has a lot of impact to play on the success or failure of it


4. LOOK FOR HELP OUTSIDE AND DON’T DO IT ALONE: Seek the support of very close people who would help you quit smoking. The best people are non-smokers as well as ex-smokers who have the experience of quitting.Reading of books relating to how to quit can do a lot to help as well,you can buy them at stores like amazon.com or big pharmacies around your hood.Keep in mind that you do not need to do any special activity once you quit smoking like you would have done if you were drinking alcohol. Have confidence in yourself that you would start doing many things even better as a non-smoker,so therefore relax and go on with the QUITTING DECISION.Also know that when you have triggers of nicotine craving, do not suppress it. It would affect you psychologically. Vent it out to your close friend so that it would be easy to let go. Intense feelings of craving will last for a few minutes and you would get over it soon if you fight it out the first few times and that’s why you need not to think of going back


5. ADD EXERCISE TO IT: You can start a healthy exercise routine to relieve the stress and help your body recover from the damage caused due to smoking for years. Start slowly and do not exercise vigorously right from the first day. Short walks like trecking a bus stop away from your house could be a good start which would help you breathe in fresh air. You may also do a rigorous physical activity for about half an hour thrice a week as a part of your routine after sometime.The exercise helps also to build the body muscular parts and possibly remove some toxins from the body through sweating
