So you’ve finally made the decision to quit smoking and this time you mean business. Well if so let me tell you what you need to do to prepare and to keep on the track.

You can think of quitting as being a lot like learning to ride a skateboard.

  • You learn balance and steering only by doing it. So you must try to quit smoking first to learn what you need to quit effectively.
  • You need a skateboard or a plan that fits you. You may need a quit smoking buddy, some medication or you could quit smoking cold turkey (my preferred method by the way)
  • When you do something that causes you to fall you learn not to do that anymore.  Likewise with smoking you avoid or prevent the things that would cause you to falter.
  • And just like skateboarding sometimes as you quit smoking you need a little support when you are getting started.
