How to get disgusted with cigarettes? Our answer

First of all, congratulations! If you're reading this article, it means that you're in the process of quitting smoking, it's a first step!

The disgust usually happens after several months of cessation.

If you want to be disgusted with cigarettes more quickly, you can look for information about the dangers of cigarettes. Cigarettes contain over 4000 toxic substances, including carbon monoxide, formaldehyde and lead. Cigarettes are the leading cause of lung cancer, but they can also cause other types of cancer, such as lip, throat and stomach cancer. In addition, smoking increases your risk of having a heart attack or stroke. Many videos on the subject could make you sick very quickly (at your own risk though).

If we understand the question correctly, this desire to be disgusted with cigarettes also comes from the fact that you want to decrease the cravings during your smoking cessation. You should know that cravings decrease over time. To help you better manage these moments, we encourage you to find strategies to occupy your mind during these few minutes. Need some help? Download Kwit, the app offers strategies to overcome cravings as soon as they arise.

Here are some examples of strategies you can use right now:

  • Review the list of reasons why you want to quit smoking. If you don't have a strong motivation, you will be more tempted to smoke. Try to think of all the reasons you want to quit, such as your family's health, the money you'll save, or the fact that you'll be in better physical shape.

  • Find a substitute for cigarettes. Some smokers succeed using carrot sticks or healthy snacks like an apple, but others prefer to turn to activities to distract themselves, such as exercise or playing with a pet. Find what works best for you and keep it handy when you are tempted to smoke.

Be persistent. Quitting isn't easy, but it is possible. If you're willing to put in the effort and try several times, you'll succeed. Don't be discouraged if you still smoke occasionally, it's normal, it's part of the quitting process. Keep trying and you will succeed!

It takes time and patience to get disgusted with cigarettes but it is possible!
