It is really important to change the way we think when we quit smoking.
There are ‘triggers’ that will make us want to light up a cigarette and it’s good to think about them and be prepared.
These ‘triggers’ are the things we do every day that – that we’ve got into the habit of doing with a smoke as well, triggers such as certain situations or emotions.
When we are in these situations and feeling these things, instead of lighting up, try and do something else like go for a walk, do some exercise or spend time with people who don’t smoke. Kids are great. They know how to have fun without smokes!
If you stay strong and say no to cigarettes then before long you will be able to do everything you did before, just as a non-smoker.
