How to Quit Smoking and Stay Quit

Congratulations! Your well on your way to a more healthier you. Quitting smoking is one of the best things you can do for yourself and your family. Now that you have quit smoking here are some resources to help you stay quit.

Quitting smoking is a big step in living a healthier more productive life. However, quitting smoking is only part of the battle. In order to fully let go of your smoking addiction you must understand the types of triggers that make you want to smoke. In many smokers’ lives the biggest obstacle to over come is the ability to manage stress after quitting smoking.

The number one reason why people start smoking again after quitting is due to stress and the belief that smoking helps alleviate the stress. This of course is a false assumption. Smoking does not reduce stress; in fact it has the tendency to increase stress by the bodies physical reaction to nicotine. As smokers we perceived smoking to reduce stress simply because after having a cigarette we would tend to feel a little better. The only thing we were doing to relieve stress by smoking was to quiet the voice in or head that said we needed a cigarette.

The only way to deal with stress like a non-smoker is to discover healthier ways to cope with day-to-day stress. People are different and stress affects each of us in different ways. A good resource to learn how to deal with stress is the book "Conquering Stress" written by Chris Green.
