    Think of yourself dying of lung cancer in a hospital bed, 20 years from now, in the future. Imagine yourself, 20 years from now, wishing you had quit 20 years ago. Then rejoice! Today is 20 years ago! You have that chance right now, that chance you'll wish in the future that you had taken 20 years ago. It's like going back in time. It's changing the future. :)

    Hello smoking, something harmful to your health, money, and quitting smoking requires first identifying and strengthening yourself, meaning that you are completely convinced of yourself and good luck

    hm. i smoked for half a century.until i collected artery troubles around the heart, and lung cancer. they fixed that well enough; and i only need to take ~13 pills a day..
    and i had to quit smoking, of course..no fun. i stopped a year ago, and i still did not get rid of the addiction.. i manage that by chewing nicotine chewing gum. a lot.
    costly, but no costlier than smoking.it`s funny how people, myself included, think that there are immune for the consequences of smoking. it is a very insidious addiction;
    for it has no immediate effect on your health..[only later.] i knew my greatgramp very well, and he smoked all his life. when old Klaas walked in, he was always preceded by
    a huge cloud of smoke.. [ ironically, he died in his sleep of the flue, when he was in his 90s.. but not everyone is that liucky.] so; the inevitable morale; i cannot recommend
    smoking..it may help you to stop and keep the addiction under control by using nasty nicotine substitutes.. [ plasters, chewing gums, or whatever.] when i had to stop i
    used some garbage that is equally addictive, some pills with the name ending on *pam. but that addiction did not stick to me, i was fed up with addictions by then.
    so; i guess i am just a lucky survivor of smoking....

    This is all auto-suggestion. As long as you yourself don’t want to quit smoking, you are not in quandary.

    I think one of the most effective methods to start doing something is to tell the others about that. In that way, you may feel responsible for doing what you said and will stick to your intentions.
