100 REASONS TO QUIT SMOKING

When you quit smoking, you have to have strong convictions about why you want to stop smoking.  Otherwise it is far too easy to give into the urges that will follow, especially in the first couple days.  Many people attempt to quit smoking and make it less than 2 hours because they forget why they wanted to quit smoking in the first place.  The voice inside their head tells them they want a cigarette and they listen.

There are so many reasons why you want to quit smoking.  Those reasons are powerful and they are real.  There is not one good reason to continue smoking.    It does not cure boredom rather it creates it.  It does not relieve stress, rather it creates it.  It does not relax you, rather it inhibits relaxation.  The only thing a cigarette does is make you want another cigarette, in about 30 minutes.

Below are 100 good reasons to quit smoking.  There are literally thousands of reasons to stop, these are only a few.  Try to write your own list and see how long you can make it.

  1. I would hope none of your family and friends will be alienated by your "behaviour" Marian. You have the right to be grumpy, short-tempered, angry, whatever or however you want to describe it - your body has betrayed you and you are dealing with it the best way you can. I don't think you should worry about the rest of us - your primary goal is to heal however you know how.
