STOPTOBER - Top Tips to Help You Quit
With Stoptober now well underway, we at EDGE know many of you will have quitting on your mind. We also know that taking that thought to the next step can be one of the hardest decisions a person can make. We would love for you all to embark on your quitting journey with EDGE e-liquids at your side, but we understand that quitting smoking can take more than just a safer alternative. With that in mind, this Stoptober we would like to share with you some top tips to help you bust those cravings for good!
Keep Things Positive
As with many of the vices in our lives, the first steps towards overcoming them are taken in our minds. Keep thinking positively and embrace the challenge; If you start your journey from a place of negativity, you will have made it that much harder to succeed. Even if you have tried and failed before, don’t let that hold you back. If you can look back at why you failed, learn from it and then take positive action to make sure that doesn’t happen again – treat failure as a lesson, not a defeat.
Small Goals, Big Changes
Life is unpredictable at the best of times and we know it can be hard to make a plan and stick to it. That being said, it can really help to keep ahead of your cravings by planning ahead wherever possible. Try to set manageable, achievable goals; perhaps set a date to reach without having a single drag. If that is too extreme, then set a limit on the number of cigarettes you consume per day or week, and then reduce that number periodically. By keeping your goals small and achievable, you will receive a much more regular sense of achievement and progression. This can give a massively positive mood-boost that in-turn will naturally spur you on, fuelling your continued quitting journey. Don’t forget to be mindful of the events on your calendar too. If you have a party coming up and you know there will be an increased temptation, plan accordingly. Your life doesn’t need to stop because you’ve stopped smoking but making sure you have the tools you need to hand ahead of time can make a vital difference between resisting or succumbing to those cravings.
Be Mindful of Your Diet
This is something that people might not consider but can actually have a big impact on your quitting journey. It’s a common stereotype that one might enjoy an after-dinner cigarette more than at any other time, making smoking after meals highly habitual behaviour that we really struggle to snap out of. There is actually a reason for this, as revealed by a study conducted in the US. The findings suggested that certain types of food can actually increase the perceived satisfaction of smoking a cigarette. Particularly those who had consumed meat-heavy dishes found smoking afterwards far more satisfying than smoking by itself. Conversely, it was also found that certain foods like vegetables, fruit and cheeses have a negative impact on the taste of an after-dinner cigarette. The same can also be said of beverage choices. The same study found that fizzy drinks, alcohol, cola, tea and coffee all make cigarettes “taste better”, where water and juices had the opposite effect. Considering this, making a change to your diet could, in fact, help you lessen those cravings and break old habits a little easier.
The Devil Makes Work for Idle Hands!
The simplest things can kick off a nicotine craving but one of the most common is the need to actually feel something in your hand. The very act of raising a cigarette, taking a drag and lowering again becomes deeply ingrained in our minds and becomes muscle memory. Getting over this can take a bit of extra help, usually in the form of a cessation device like sprays, lozenges or gums. Of course, we at EDGE think our e-liquids are the perfect alternative, having a vape in hand will keep your cravings at bay and stop your hands wandering back to their old ways!
It doesn’t take much, a light walk or even a simple stretch. Multiple scientific studies tell us that just 5 minutes of exercise a day can help cut cravings. Not only is the act of exercising a great distraction, but there is even evidence to suggest that the endorphins and other chemicals released by your brain during physical activity can actually have anti-craving effects! We know it’s not new advice but exercising really can improve your wellbeing and keep your quitting journey heading in the right direction.
It can seem like an impossible task, but you really can quit. Be mindful, make the right choices for you and keep your chin up! If you vape, then EDGE is here to support you on your journey, every step of the way. Even if you don’t vape, we believe in you and know you have the power to make the change.
No matter how you quit, get an EDGE over your cravings!
