Dr. David Cohen, N.D., Ph.D., M.H., C.N.C.  and MrShortcut invite YOU to quit smoking here at the world's largest personal web site
With special thanks and credit to NCI and NIH for creating this program

Immediately After Quitting

  • Develop a clean, fresh, nonsmoking environment around yourself –at work and at home. Buy yourself flowers–you may be surprised how much you can enjoy their scent now.

  • The first few days after you quit, spend as much free time as possible in places where smoking isn't allowed, such as libraries, museums, theaters, department stores, and churches.

  • Drink large quantities of water and fruit juice (but avoid sodas that contain caffeine).

  • Try to avoid alcohol, coffee, and other beverages that you associate with cigarette smoking.

  • Strike up conversation instead of a match for a cigarette.

  • If you miss the sensation of having a cigarette in your hand, play with something else–a pencil, a paper clip, a marble.

  • If you miss having something in your mouth, try toothpicks or a fake cigarette.

Avoid Temptation

  • Instead of smoking after meals, get up from the table and brush your teeth or go for a walk.

  • If you always smoke while driving, listen to a particularly interesting radio program or your favorite music, or take public transportation for a while, if you can.

  • For the first 1-3 weeks, avoid situations you strongly associate with the pleasurable aspects of smoking, such as watching your favorite TV program, sitting in your favorite chair, or having a cocktail before dinner.

  • Until you are confident of your ability to stay off cigarettes, limit your socializing to healthful, outdoor activities or situations where smoking is not allowed.

  • If you must be in a situation where you'll be tempted to smoke (such as a cocktail or dinner party), try to associate with the nonsmokers there.

  • Try to analyze cigarette ads to understand how they attempt to "sell" you on individual brands.

When You Get the Crazies

  • Keep oral substitutes handy–try carrots, pickles, sunflower seeds, apples, celery, raisins, or sugarless gum instead of a cigarette.

  • Take 10 deep breaths and hold the last one while lighting a match. Exhale slowly and blow out the match. Pretend it's a cigarette and crush it out in an ashtray.

  • Take a shower or bath if possible.

  • Learn to relax quickly and deeply. For those who are not familiari with the extraordinary power of relaxation to engage more than a dozen different systems within your body, you're in for more than a small treat. In the next few days you need only practice the one task of relaxing instantly with one long deep breath to see fast and measurable differences in your efforts.

    Make yourself limp, visualize a soothing, pleasing situation, and get away from it all for a moment. Concentrate on that peaceful image and nothing else.

  • Light incense or a candle instead of a cigarette.

  • Never allow yourself to think that "one won't hurt"–it will.

Find New Habits - They are the best distraction from bad habits

  • Change your habits to make smoking difficult, impossible or unnecessary. For example, it's hard to smoke while you're swimming, jogging, or playing tennis or handball. When your desire for a cigarette is intense, wash your hands or the dishes, or try new recipes.

  • Do things that require you to use your hands. Try crossword puzzles, needlework, gardening, or household chores. Go bike riding or take the dog for a walk; give yourself a manicure; write letters.

  • Enjoy having a clean mouth taste and maintain it by brushing your teeth frequently and using a mouthwash.

  • Stretch a lot.

  • Get plenty of rest.

  • Pay attention to your appearance. Look and feel sharp. Those around you will certainly notice the difference.

  • Try to find time for the activities that are the most meaningful, satisfying, and important to you.

Regarding Gaining Weight When You Quit Smoking

Many people who are considering quitting are very concerned about gaining weight. If you are concerned about weight gain, keep these points in mind:
  • Quitting doesn't mean you'll automatically gain weight. When people gain it's because they often eat more once they quit.

  • The benefits of giving up cigarettes far outweigh the drawbacks of adding a few pounds. You'd have to gain a very large amount of weight to offset the many substantial health benefits that a normal smoker gains by quitting. Watch what you eat, and if you are concerned about gaining weight consider the tips that follow.

As pleased as we are at the Way of Personal Mastery
to bring you this government-created program,
it is vital to remind you that
knowing something is meaningless untill we act upon it.

Tips To Help Avoid Weight Gain When You Decide To Stop Smoking

  • Make sure you have a well balanced diet, with a fair balance of protein, carbohydrates and fat.

  • Don't set a target date for a holiday, when the temptation of high calorie food and drinks may be too hard to resist.

  • Drink a glass of water before your meals.

  • Weigh yourself weekly.

  • Chew sugarless gum when you want sweet foods.

  • Plan menus carefully, and count calories. Don't try to lose weight–just try to maintain your pre-quitting weight.

  • Have low calorie foods on hand for nibbling. Use the Snack Calorie Chart to choose foods that are both nutritious and low in calories. Some good choices are fresh fruits and vegetables, fruit and vegetable juices, low-fat cottage cheese, and air-popped popcorn without butter.

  • Take time for daily exercise, or join an organized exercise group.
