"25 Things You Should Do Before You Stop Smoking"

===========================================================

1. Write down why you want to stop

2. Write down why you like to smoke

3. Decide if you want to stop more than you want to smoke

4. If you do want to stop more than you want to smoke,
continue with this checklist. If not, read on only when
you're ready to quit

5. Continue to smoke until you've completed the checklist.

6. Write down where, when and with whom you smoke

7. Write down what feelings lead you to reaching for a fag

8. Visualise yourself in the same places, at the same time,
with the same people and with the same feelings without
smoking.

9. In your imagination, what do you do, say, think and
feel?
Play out a scene in your head. For instance, someone
offers
you a smoke. How do you feel? What do you say?

10. Consider abstaining from alcohol while you're quitting
smoking. Lots of people relapse while taking a drink

11. Focus on the benefits you will enjoy by not smoking.
Choose these rather than the transitory satisfaction
of a
cigarette

12. Consult your doctor or pharmacist about nicotine
replacement products. While they're not for everyone,
they
can help and your doctor or pharmacist can advise you
on the
best product for you given your history and pattern of
smoking

13. Survey your home, car and workplace for any smoking
paraphernalia, such as ashtrays, lighters, cigarettes.
Burn them or bin them.

14. Carry a bottle of water with you wherever you go and sip
it. Don't underestimate the value of this tip!

15. Get a moneybox or jam jar and save the money you're not
spending on cigarettes. This money is to be spent on
you as
a reward. Decide what you'd like to do with it.

16. Have your teeth cleaned by your dentist or dental
hygienist.

17. Dry clean your clothes.

18. Spring-clean your home and car, getting rid of nicotine
stains and odours from windows, carpets, curtains

19. Keep a daily spontaneous journal, writing down not only
about cigarettes but also whatever is going on in your
mind
at the time.

20. Take two hours off each week just for you. No jobs. Just
fun and pleasure time for you.

21. Do some physical activity every day - about 20 minutes
will do.

22. Each lots of fruit and vegetables. Have some to hand if
you want to nibble.

23. Don't substitute one bad habit for another - don't start
eating chocolates, biscuits etc instead of smoking.
(See 22
above!)

24. Believe in yourself

25. Know that, by quitting smoking, you can go on to fulfil
any other personal goal bar none.
