Your desire to stop smoking has always been your hard-hitting goal for yourself. Given that it’s never easy because of nicotine pleasure, stress, or result of addictive habit for the longest time, remember that it’s never too late to quit.
So for the love month, why not consider the hashtag #loveyourlungs? After all, smoking not only adversely affects the respiratory system; it can also lead to lethal medical problems such as high blood pressure, heart disease, stroke, and various cancers. And to give this resolution a new resolve and motivation, Laser Wellness by Contours Medical Director Dr. Claudine Roura shares her insightful but totally doable tips to make you quit in no time:
1. Plan and Party.
Most of the time, a public declaration of your desire to quit is the best way to keep yourself going and a fun way to ask for their support. It makes sense to gather your closest family and friends whether over brunch or coffee and make your announcement official. Do mention about your creative strategies and set a deadline when you can claim: Freedom!
2. Have an Accountability Partner.
Remember that there’s nothing too big or too small when it comes to your achievements—same goes with compromise. Whether you tried puffing one butt or for 10 seconds or going steady with your first straight week of cigarette-free life, it always pays to have your bestie by your side. To come out strong and successful, having someone who can work with you closely makes the whole perspective a whole lot easier.
3. Make a Reward System.
Who doesn’t think that a job well done doesn’t deserve a reward? And since we understand that signing up for a quitting challenge is any smoker’s Achilles heel, a winning reward is always a helpful factor. How about an out of the country trip, a one week worth of vacation leave, or simply booking yourself with the country’s top fashion photographer showcasing a younger and fresher you? Know that when it comes to breaking a bad habit, a little reward will get you a long way like never before.
4. Consider Laser Wellness by Contours’ AcuQuit.
Luckily, working towards our wellness goals these days make it a whole lot easier for us. If the news hasn’t reached you just yet, there’s laser acupuncture that is considered as Canada’s ultimate method to quit using a needless tool that will make you stop smoking in less than an hour.
