A Step in the direction to prevent cardiac diseases…

Smoking,  the inhalation and exhalation of fumes from burning tobacco in cigars, cigarettes and pipes, has been a common habit, in people of various ages and walks of life. Some smoke due to peer pressure, some for stress relief, some do it just because they like to do it.. and some end up smoking because of the smoke other left around them.. the passive smokers…

Quit Smoking 

  • Don’t start if you already dont smoke.
  • Use a distraction, maybe a chew a gum to overcome the urge to smoke.
  • Surround yourself with people who believe you can do it… And stay away from those who think you cant.
  • There are people who have accomplished this! you are not the first to do so.. find them interact with them, let them mentor you.
  • Keep a track on yourself, be honest with yourself
  • Be aware and alert, no one said it was going to be easy to quit… keep visiting your doctor for guidance, and if needed, medical attention.
  • Keep discussing your progress with your support groups. Their encouragement always helps.
  • Dont give in to temptations easily. Dont give up on yourself. You are your own best friend, but you need not be you own worst enemy…
  • Select goals and rewards which monitor your progress in your path to avoid tobacco
  • If needed, interact with people who have seen the negative side of using tobacco, you need not be one of them…
  • Do not use tobacco chewing gums, they only worsen your addiction
  • Most importantly, stay away from smoke exhaled by others.. passive smoking is more harmful.

A healthy lifestyle habit goes a long way… A healthy life needs a healthy heart. Take your step closer to your healthy heart, move away from the smoke.
