  • Because you have to walk down 8 floors at work to go out for a cigarette break 😀
  • Because smoking destroys our planet 🌍 (more information on our article Β«  Impact of tobacco on ecology  Β»)
  • Because cold tobacco smells bad 🀒
  • Because a pack of cigarettes is expensive πŸ’°
  • Because yellow teeth don't look good on anyone
  • Because everyone around you will be proud of you πŸ’ͺ
  • Because you'll be able to afford something you've always dreamed of πŸ’­
  • Because you'll notice changes in your body very quickly πŸ‹οΈβ€
  • Because you don't enjoy half the cigarettes you smoke anyway…

Are you convinced? Here's how to take the plunge and quit smoking!

Smoking cessation starts with MOTIVATION! To start your new life without tobacco, list down all the reasons why you want to quit smoking and keep this list with you to reread it when you're feeling a little weak πŸ˜‰ (You already have a small list above πŸ˜‰).Once the motivation is right, you need to set your quit date. This is the starting point for your smoking cessation.

After that, you should downloadd Kwit and enter your quit date so that you are more than ready to begin. Your first successes will come in the first few hours without smoking!

It's also worth talking about it to your loved ones, as their support is invaluable! You can also join our group of Kwitters,a Facebook group where people exchange and help each other to quit smoking!

Lastly, be prepared for potential cravings by replacing smoking habits with other things:

For example:

  • I smoke a cigarette because I'm bored : Keep yourself busy in another way: with a coloring book, a game on your phone, a walk in the park next door, it's up to you 😊
  • I smoke a cigarette because I'm stressed : Offset the cigarette with a relaxing activity (everyone is stressed but not everyone is a smoker, non-smokers also have ways to manage their stress). For example, do breathing exercises, get some fresh air, eat a fruit or drink detox juices. Find more information on how manage your stress here

So don't wait any longer! Start quitting smoking with Kwit πŸ˜‰
