    Hello Faith and Welcome to the Quit Blogs

    There's one understanding that will determine how easy or hard this journey will be for ourselves and that is... Knowledge.
    The more you learn about quitting and follow what you learn, the easier it becomes.

    OK, some important info to help you on your journey
    If you haven’t already done so, Call Quitline on 0800 778-778 talk to them about a starter pack, there’s a quit plan here on your start page to help you but the starter pack has to be sent by them.

    Read through these blogs daily, it’ll help you learn about your quit and what works good that you could try.
    Getting and Giving support (comments) is far more powerful than most people care to believe, it triggers like a strengthening power inside yourself that helps in many ways.

    Remember the 4D's when it gets hard
    1: Drink water - sip
    2: Deep Breathe
    3: Do something else - Do something to keep busy for 10min, anything, just do something.
    4: Delay - make that thought wait, refrain from smoking by making that thought to smoke wait for at least 10min then you can do what you want.

    Those 4D's will save you many times, the biggest one that worked for me is
    #3: Do Something.
    Tonight before you go to sleep, clean your house of all smoking paraphernalia, no ashtrays, no butts, no lighters etc, so you don’t tease yourself later.

    The first week is the hardest & you’re not alone.
    It takes 72hrs to rid of Nicotine and the habit will test you.

    Good luck
    Cheers

    Hello Faith
    Yes you can do this.
    It's not easy, but it is so worth it.
    Follow the four D's and make NOPE (Not One Puff Ever) your mantra.
    Good luck!
