10 Tips to Stop Smoking
Tip 1: Plan Your Quit
Quitting smoking isn’t an easy task. Create a plan that works for you to help you reach your goal. First, set a date! Choose a date to quit smoking and stick with it. It’s a great way to mentally prepare to stop smoking. Think about whether you want to quit completely or gradually and find the right product(s) that are right for you.
Tip 2: Remember Why You Decided to Quit
Make a list of all the reasons why you want to stop smoking and put it somewhere you’ll see it. When you feel like you want to give up, remind yourself of why you are doing this and keep going!
Tip 3: Use The Money You Save on Cigarettes to Treat Yourself
The average smoker spends around £5.92 a day on cigarettes, which is a whopping £180 a month*. Calculate how much you could save!
Make sure you actually see the money you save. Set up a special account or just start a ‘quitting jar’, to store the saved cash. Then for the fun part - deciding how to spend it. *Based on a pack of 20 cigarettes costing £10.76 and the average number of 11 cigarettes a day.
Tip 4: Quit With a Friend
Grab a friend who also wants to quit. That way, you can keep each other motivated and you’ll know you’re not in it alone.
Tip 5: Identify what makes you crave a cigarette
Strengthen your willpower by limiting or skipping triggers you commonly associate with smoking. Learn how to identify your triggers and get tips for conquering your cravings.
Tip 6: Keep busy to resist the urge to smoke
Whenever you feel the urge to smoke, resist it by keeping busy. Cravings usually last 5-10 minutes so make a list of things to do in this time. For example, walk around the block, call a friend, tidy your desk or catch up on the news.
Tip 7: Work out the Stress
Physical activity is a great way of dealing with the stress of quitting. Walk, run, swim, or take up a new activity. Your lung capacity improves by as much as 10% nine months after you quit so you’ll be able to do more.
Tip 8: Lean on Your Loved Ones
Tell your friends and family that you’re trying to quit. They know what an incredible thing you are doing and will support you along the way! When you are struggling to keep it going, lean on them for encouragement!
Tip 9: Think Positive
At times you may want to pack it all in and have another cigarette. When this happens, take a moment to think of all the positives that come with being smoke-free. You could have more energy, better sense of taste and smell, healthier looking skin, whiter teeth and many more health benefits.
Tip 10: Try Nicotine Replacement Therapy (NRT)
When you stop smoking, nicotine withdrawal may make you feel irritable, anxious or down. NRT can help tackle these withdrawal symptoms so you can carry on with your day!
Follow the instructions below and do NOT swallow the gum.
Chew one piece of gum when you feel the urge to smoke. It is important to chew the gum correctly, not like ordinary chewing-gum. To get the most benefit from Nicotinell Gum, it is important to chew properly.
1. Chew until you start tasting a strong flavour of nicotine.
2. Let the gum rest between your cheek and gums until the taste begins to fade.
3. Start chewing the gum again.
4. Repeat this chewing routine for about 30 minutes.
Most people use 8 – 12 pieces of 2mg gum a day.
Do NOT take Nicotinell chewing-gum if you are:
- Allergic (hypersensitive) to nicotine or any of the other ingredients of the chewing-gum
- Non-smoker or occasional smoker under 12 years of age, except on the advice of a doctor.
Take special care with Nicotinell chewing-gum. Please speak with your doctor, nurse or pharmacist before taking the chewing-gum if you:
- have heart disease, (heart attack, worsening chest pain, disorders of the heart rate and/or rhythm)
- have uncontrolled high blood pressure
- have recently had a stroke
- have serious liver or kidney disease
- have or had a stomach ulcer
- have persistent indigestion
- have a severe sore throat or inflammation of the mouth
- are diabetic
- have an overactive thyroid gland
- have a tumour of the adrenal glands (pheochromocytoma)
- are fructose intolerant
- are on a low-sodium diet
- are taking any other medicines
- are pregnant or breastfeeding.
People having problems with the jawbone and some denture wearers may experience difficulty in chewing the gum. If you do, it is recommended that you use a different form of nicotine replacement therapy, such as a patch or lozenge. Ask your doctor or pharmacist for advice.
Using nicotine replacement therapy is better than continuing to smoke.
Taking other medicines
Please tell your doctor or pharmacist if you are taking or have recently taken any other medicines, including medicines obtained without a prescription.
The effect of some medicines can be altered when you stop smoking and/or use Nicotinell chewing gum.
- If you are already taking regular medication you should tell your doctor, nurse or pharmacist.
- Diabetics should monitor their blood sugar levels more often than usual when taking chewing gum because your insulin/medication requirements may alter.
Taking Nicotinell chewing-gum with food and drink
Coffee, juices, acidic and fizzy drinks may reduce the absorption of nicotine and should not be taken for 15 minutes before chewing the gum.
Smoking during pregnancy is associated with risks such as poor growth of the baby before birth, premature birth or stillbirth. Stopping smoking is the single most effective way to improve both your health and that of your baby. The earlier smoking stops, the better.
Ideally, stopping smoking during pregnancy should be done without nicotine replacement therapy. However, if you have tried and this is not possible, nicotine replacement therapy may be used because the risk to the developing baby is less than that expected from continued smoking.
The decision to use nicotine replacement therapy should be made as early on in the pregnancy as possible with the aim of discontinuing use after 2-3 months.
Ask your doctor for advice before taking any medicine.
It is better to use nicotine replacement therapy products that can be taken intermittently (not patches). Try to breastfeed at a time just before you take the product to ensure that the baby gets the smallest amount of nicotine possible.
If you need to use nicotine replacement therapy to help you give up smoking, the amount of nicotine that the baby may receive is considerably smaller and less harmful than the second-hand smoke they would otherwise be breathing in.
