Welcome and congratulations
for making this important decision to quit smoking! We are happy to have you
here with us! You seem well-prepared and motivated,
and you have set a quit date for tomorrow – That’s wonderful!
As we know,
smoking cessation can be difficult and it’s quite normal to feel a little bit
anxious and want to push away your quit date. But know that you are not alone
in your quit journey and we are here for you. You can call us at 1-877-513-5333 if you have any questions or concerns.
Sometimes, talking to somebody can be helpful
and other times, you are strong enough to persevere and rely on yourself, your
strengths and your reasons for quitting. You know yourself best and you have
worked very hard to get to this point. We encourage you to go with
what works for you. Do you have a plan for tomorrow?
people find helpful to use the 4 D’s:
breathing will help you relax and focus on something else
water will help you clean your system and keeps your hands and mouth busy
such as go for a walk, play a game, text a friend, go to the gym etc.
– Cravings don’t last very long, usually about 5 to 10 minutes
that everyone is different, some people prefer to quit cold turkey and others
prefer to use some quit aids like the patch, the nicotine gum or inhaler. Each
method has its own qualities that appeal to each person. You can try one
approach and then switch to another one if needed. If you are interested to use a quit aid, please discuss with a doctor or pharmacist about your options, how to use the aids properly and the right dosage.
We’re wishing you the best
of luck and thank you for being here!
