General advice to help stop smoking.

Smoking 20 cigarettes a day costs over �2000 per year

Set a quit date this helps you mentally prepare to stop smoking, it maybe a holiday or national no smoking day

Change your routine such as avoiding shops where you buy cigarettes, drinking juice in the morning instead of coffee and a cigarette.

Remember the physical cravings will pass the urge to smoke lasts a few minutes. It may help to take deep breaths whilst these happen. Remember that cravings reduce significantly over the first four to five days.

Find a substitute try a healthy alternative such as sugar free chewing gum. Some smokers drag on a piece of rolled paper and get a hit from the air. Glucose tablets give a rush of energy similar to a nicotine hit.

Think positive make a list of the reasons why you want to stop smoking, not getting lung cancer is a good starting point.

Do  something  else     try to find a hobby that makes smoking difficult e.g. knitting, swimming, diving, going to the library?

Watch the money add up make a note of how much you save each day on a calendar and watch the amount add up, or physically put the money aside.

Reward yourself.  Plan a celebration each month to celebrate quitting, perhaps after a year you could treat yourself to a holiday from the extra cash.
