There's no way around it. Smoking is bad for your health. Smoking harms nearly every organ of the body. Cigarette smoking causes 87 percent of lung cancer deaths. It is also responsible for many other cancers and health problems. These include lung disease, heart and blood vessel disease, stroke and cataracts.

Remember, every year more than a million people quit smoking. Even if you've tried quitting before, it's important to keep at it. Most people who try to stop smoking eventually succeed!

If you slip and smoke a cigarette, go easy on yourself. Learn from the experience and recommit yourself to quitting. Get support from others by joining a support group, or talking to friends and family.

Nicotine replacement can help reduce many of the physical symptoms of withdrawal. But for many smokers, breaking the mental dependence is the hardest part.

Here are some ways to cope when you get the urge to smoke:

 

  • 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 to reduce stress.
  • Learn to relax quickly and deeply. 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.
  • Go swimming, jogging, bike riding. Take the dog for a walk.
  • Do things that require you to use your hands. Try crossword puzzles, needlework, gardening, or household chores. Wash your hands, do the dishes, or try new recipes.
  • Brush your teeth and use a mouthwash
  • Be committed. Never allow yourself to think that "one won't hurt"—it will.
