When you’ve decided to quit smoking, there are a number of things you can do to take control of a habit that has seemed beyond your control. Here are a few tips to do that:
Tip #1: Change Your Brand.
Whatever brand you smoke, buy a different brand—the more different the better. For bonus points, buy the most expensive brand you can find. (See Tip #5.)
Tip #2: Change Your Hand.
If you smoke right-handed, switch to the left, and vice-versa. This is especially importantswhen you are lighting up.
Tip #3: Change Where You Stand.
If you have a particular spot where you smoke, don’t let yourself smoke there.
Tip #4: Change Your Stash.
Wherever you keep your cigarettes, change that, so that you have to go looking for a smoke.
Tip #5: Overcharge Yourself.
Smoke all the cigarettes you want—but only smoke one out of each pack. Promise yourself to destroy all but one of the cigarettes before smoking that last one.
Tip #6: Smoke Alone.
If you take smoke-breaks with friends or co-workers, stop. Vow to only smoke alone.
Tip #7: Procrastinate.
When you want a cigarette, say to yourself, “I’ll have one in five minutes.” See how many times you can say that.
