Tips For Changing One Bad Habit

We all have at least one bad habit that truly should be eliminated in life. It can be one that could change a life altogether and end up with the result being better health forever. The hardest thing is not acknowledging that behavior, but changing it and changing it soon.

I have quit smoking and know how difficult that can be, but I devised a nearly painless, cheap and good way to give up smoking which I want to share with anyone willing to truly want to quit.

Start anytime and gather all the tools so you will be ready to stop smoking and not have to postpone it a second. Cheap, means little cost. Buy or get a straw. Cut it the size of your regular cigarette. Stuff it with tissues, paper towel or toilet paper so the stray will provide a good drag. Never light this!

Tally up how many cigarettes you now smoke in a 24 hour period. Write down that number and stick to that when you begin changing this one bad habit of smoking. Use the straw when you want to smoke and treat it like a cigarette and not take a real smoke. Use it as often as you like.

The day you say you are beginning will be the day you eliminate ONE cigarette you smoke. If you want to reduce your smokes by one a day for 5 days and then take a break, never go back to the beginning, take off where you left off.

For example. If you smoke 20 cigarettes a day and start your plan and eliminate 5 cigarettes for those 5 days, take a break. The next time you use these tips for changing one bad habit you allow yourself 15 cigarettes.

Think about it. These tips for changing one bad habit of smoking will help you stop smoking without withdrawal symptoms since you are doing it slowly at the pace you set.
