1. Create a structured plan

Having a plan in place for your quit journey gives you a goal to work towards and lots of milestones to meet along the way. Not only does it give you something to look forward to but it also allows you to mentally prepare for a life without cigarettes.

2. Write down your motives to quit

Reminding yourself of the reasons you quit smoking is one way to keep yourself motivated throughout your stop-smoking journey. If you find yourself struggling, you can look over the list to keep you on the right path.

3. Start saving!

Keeping track of all the money that you’re saving is another way to keep yourself motivated. Why not treat yourself to something nice with your savings as a reward?

If you quit with a friend or member of family, you’ll be able to motivate each other along the way.

Some people have triggers that lead them to crave for a cigarette. Whether it’s stress or alcohol, dealing with your triggers is one way to stay on track.

Keeping yourself and your hands busy is one way to stop thinking about cigarettes. Research has shown that a craving usually lasts 5-10 minutes so try to keep distracted for that period of time.

Quitting smoking can lead to you feeling agitated but there are other ways to deal with stress rather than picking up a cigarette. Why not go for a walk or take up a new hobby?
