Tips to Quit Smoking Cold Turkey

Have you finally come to the realization that it is time to quit smoking? You’ve know for a while now that you need to quit and there is no denying that it is bad for you. So, what is the problem? There are so many products out there today to aid you in your journey to quit. If you are not really into the medications or patches then you truly only have one choice, cold turkey. It sounds harsh, we know. If you want to quit, it is a great way to do it. The trick of quitting cold turkey is that you have to be ready. You have to want to quit. You cannot just try quitting cold turkey if you think you kind of want to quit. You have to be 100% into it and ready to stop.
Like we stated earlier, you have to be ready to quit. You have to know in your mind that you are done and that you don’t want to smoke anymore. Once you have that mind set, the next step is not to purchase any more cigarettes. Different things work for different people. If you are frugal, then think about the financial aspect of quitting smoking. If you smoke one pack of cigarettes a day, every day for the amount of money that you spend on cigarettes you can make monthly lease payment on a Jeep Liberty. Think about that. Just ponder how much money it is that you are spending each day or each week on cigarettes.
If money isn’t your thing, think about your health and the impact that smoking has on your health and the health of all of the people around you. Do you want your children going to school each day smelling of cigarette smoke? If you smoke in their company, they will.
There is no doubt that quitting cold turkey is difficult. There are some side effects that you should be aware of. You can expect to be irritable, have difficulty sleeping, have an increase in appetite and you could possibly have difficulty concentrating for an extended period of time. No one is saying that it is going to be easy. You will get through it though. There is a light at the end of the tunnel and that light brightens up your life. The sooner you quit and just throw them away, the better off you will be.
