How to convince someone to stop smoking?

Convincing someone to stop smoking is helping him and the ones he loves live a longer and fuller life ahead. How to do it? Read on and find out.

Create a relaxing atmosphere at home

Scientific studies have shown that most smokers smoke when are faced with a stressful situation. Buy meditation CDs or relaxing instrumental music DVDs and let him listen. He won’t be able to smoke because he’ll be asleep in no time at all.

Make him aware of the health hazards of smoking

Give him the most recent statistics about tobacco-related diseases and point out that these diseases eventually lead to death. Remind him that his children need him alive, not dead.

Ban smoking inside your home

Well, the smoker may take his smoking somewhere else but it’s a good beginning. He’ll realize sooner that he won’t be able to enjoy his favorite TV show or spend time with you if he has to stay outside all of the time.

Tell him about the financial benefits of quitting smoking

Make him aware of the many things and services he can get if he stops spending his money on cigarettes. Encourage him to open a savings account where he can save all his “cigarette money”. He’d be surprised to find that he can buy a car in just a few years!

Tell him to distract himself during urges

Nicotine is psychologically addicting which explains why it’s very hard to quit smoking. So tell him to walk around or do something that will keep him busy as soon as the urge attacks.

Get him a doctor

You need to get the person who is smoking a help from the professionals in order to suffice the cravings without smoking.

Encourage him to eat healthy foods

Recent studies have found out that eating more fruits and vegetables and drinking more juices and water can actually make cigarettes taste bad. Not to mention that doing so will give him a healthier mind and body.

Provide alternatives

Smokers would want to quit smoking. The problem is, they do not have the courage to do this anymore. You have to provide them with an alternative that they can use.
