How to Dampen That Urge

There are seven major coping skills to help you fight that urge to smoke. These tips are designed for you, the new nonsmoker, to help you nurture the nonsmoking habit.

1. Think about why you quit

Go back to your list of reasons for quitting. Look at this list several times a day–especially when you are hit with the urge to smoke. The best reasons you could have for quitting are very personally yours, and these are also the best reasons to stay a nonsmoker.

2. Know when you are rationalizing

It is easy to rationalize yourself back into smoking (see Common Rationalizations). Don't talk yourself into smoking again. A new nonsmoker in a tense situation may think, "I'll just have one cigarette to calm myself down." If thoughts like this pop into your head, stop and think again! You know better ways to relax– nonsmokers ways, such as taking a walk or doing breathing exercises.

Concern about gaining weight may also lead to rationalizations. Learn to counter thoughts such as, "I'd rather be thin, even if it means smoking." Remember that a slight weight gain is not likely to endanger your health as much as smoking would. (Cigarette smokers have about a 70-percent higher rate of premature death than nonsmokers.) And review the list of healthy, low-calorie snacks that you used when quitting.

3. Anticipate Triggers and Prepare to Avoid Them

By now you know which situations, people, and feelings are likely to tempt you to smoke. Be prepared to meet these triggers head on and counteract them. Keep using the skills that helped you cope in cutting down and quitting:
  • Keep your hands busy–doodle, knit, type a letter.

  • Avoid people who smoke; spend more time with nonsmoking friends.

  • Find activities that make smoking difficult (gardening, washing the car, taking a shower). Exercise to help knock out that urge; it will help you to feel and look good as well.

  • Put something other than a cigarette in your mouth. Chew sugarless gum or nibble on a carrot or celery stick.

  • Avoid places where smoking is permitted. Sit in the nonsmoking section of restaurants, trains, and planes.

  • Reduce your consumption of alcohol, which often stimulates the desire to smoke. Try to have no more than one or two drinks at a party. Better yet, have a glass of juice, soda, or mineral water.

4. Reward yourself for not smoking

Congratulations are in order each time you get through a day without smoking. After a week, give yourself a pat on the back and a reward of some kind. Buy a new record or treat yourself to a movie or concert. No matter how you do it, make sure you reward yourself in some way. It helps to remind yourself that what you are doing is important.

5. Use positive thoughts

If self-defeating thoughts start to creep in, remind yourself again that you are a nonsmoker, that you do not want to smoke, and that you have good reasons for it. Putting yourself down and trying to hold out using willpower alone are not effective coping techniques. Mobilize the power of positive thinking!

6. Use relaxation techniques

Breathing exercises help to reduce tension. Instead of having a cigarette, take a long deep breath, count to 10, and release it. Repeat this 5 times. See how much more relaxed you feel?

7. Get social support

The commitment to remain a nonsmoker can be made easier by talking about it with friends and relatives. They can congratulate you as you check off another day, week, and month as a nonsmoker. Tell the people close to you that you might be tense for a while, so they know what to expect. They'll be sympathetic when you have an urge to smoke and can be counted on to help you resist it. Remember to call on your friends when you are lonely or you feel an urge to smoke. A buddy system is a great technique.

Best Path To Longevity On Paul Newman

One great treat of the century was Mr. Paul Newman.
How can anyone pay sufficient tribute to Paul Newman?
Can you see how Paul Newman used shortcuts, MASTER shortcuts,
to slowly earn thousands of dollars, and then several millions of dollars,
and then, as any embracer of the Best Path To Longevity would set out to do,
earn hundreds of millions of dollars... which he chose to invest into helping the helpless?
If Paul Newman, in between acting, directing, and apparently enjoying a very happy family life,
could earn hundreds of millions of dollars to invest into helping the helpless that co-exist with greed,
then what, pray tell us, are you capable of contributing when you embrace the Best Path To Longevity?
Paul Newman, pursuing his dreams, failed and struck out before improving his life 50 years in a row!
Paul Newman improved the lives of millions who never knew, millions more who never will know.
Such a life of devotion earns Paul Newman the highest praises of the Best Path To Longevity.
May your own life be as long and happy, as rich & giving, as that of the saint, Paul Newman.
May you be perceptive enough to grasp and employ your own Best Path To Longevity.
If Paul Newman, who could not pay his family's appliance bill, could rise up so high,
it gets awfully challenging for ANY of us to excuse quitting with "circumstances."
We do not stop something because we failed. We failed because we stopped.
Giving away even a quarter per day, the Best Path To Longevity enrichens.
Learn to give away more, and you will learn how to multiply your results.
Let Paul Newman's life, and the lives of your role models, guide you up.

Avoid greeting the dawn without a map for the day. The more you write, the more you make.
Stop forming opinions until AFTER you take in, and enjoy, a great deal of knowledge and experience.
Paul Newman did not give away hundreds of millions of dollars. He gave away thousands... many times over.
Anything that you do with excellence gets better with observant repetition. Live your own Best Path To Longevity.
Give a bit more, and get a bit more. It rarely works the other way around. If it is to be true, then it is exclusively up to you.
