You may already know just how bad tobacco and nicotine are for your body and that these things can lead to cancer. In fact, there is a very high risk of cancer when you are a smoker and if you have family that you love and young children that you are responsible for, you will want to live for as long as you possibly can to protect them and smoking is not the way to do it. You have to remember that you are addicted to nicotine which means that giving it up is not going to be easy at all. It is going to be one of the most difficult things that you do but if you keep your babies or your family in mind, you should be able to develop the will power to get through it and quit forever.
Knowing when to seek out professional treatment
Most people are able to break the habit on their own but for some people they may need to have special treatment to aid them to quit smoking. Hypnosis is one method that is used to help people to get over the addiction which has been known to work with more severe cases.
There are special techniques used in hypnotherapy is also tackle a range of lifestyle and to help people to get over the habit and in most cases, the doctor will ask the patient or the person quitting to imagine the consequences of their habit in the state of trance that they are in. When you give up smoking, your withdrawal symptoms will start just a few hours later and they will be at their worst in the range of forty eight hours after you have quit. You need to prepare for this and you need to create an environment that is going to make this very difficult experience slightly easier.
If you work full time, it might be a good idea to inform your boss about your plans and take the week off because you are going to certainly lose focus, concentration and with everything that you will be feeling, working is the last thing that will be on your mind. It would be a great idea for you to invest some money in all of your favourite food, because hunger is one of withdrawal symptoms you will experience and to rent out your favourite movies so that you will have another avenue to focus on during the withdrawal. You will feel terrible but at least if you have some great food and some great movies, they will take your mind off the anxiety, depression and many other emotions that hit you.
