Tips to Help Your Body Recover as a Non Smoker
But giving up the tobacco habit is only the first step in the long smoking cessation healing process. Your body will now need to recover from the damages wrought on it by cigarettes. To help you along in the process, to keep you from going back on tobacco, here are 5 things you need to remember to do when you quit smoking:
When you quit smoking you need to drink water. Lots and lots of water! Water helps detox the body by flushing out the toxins and chemicals that have been depositing into your system by cigarettes. It is recommended you drink 2-3 litres of water a day. Your body has a blueprint of where you should be. So once it registers you are a non-smoker it will be removing those toxins and poisons from your body as quickly as it can and this can impact on your kidneys. So avoid kidney pain by drinking water.
Cigarettes contain sugar and lots of it. So once you are a non smoker, you will need to look at how you will replace that sugar. Fruit is a healthy option and you will need something every half hour or less frequently depending on the number of cigarettes you smoked. It is important to eat a variety of different fruits. Fruits contain many of the vitamins and nutrients that your body needs to replenish after smoking.
When people smoke, as a rule they inhale the smoke. This moves the toxins, tar, nicotine and poisons into the outer areas of the lungs. Once they become non smokers, they rarely take those deep breaths. So it is important to take deep breaths constantly to remove these from the lungs. This is why it is not unusual to see people develop pneumonia once they quit smoking. The best method is the 4, 7, 8 method. So breathe in deeply for 4, hold it for 7 and breathe out slowly for 8. Do this twice at least every hour and more often if you smoked 20/day or more.
Check Your Bank Account
Smoking is not only a dangerous habit, it is an expensive habit. Smoking is a bank breaker for many people. Therefore, if you are struggling with motivation in the first few days after you quit smoking, make a plan to calculate how much money smoking cessation saves you—and maybe plan to use that money for something more healthy, fun or productive as well.
Be Trigger Conscious
In the days after you give up the psychosocial smoking habit, you will need to be very conscious of what triggers you vis-à-vis smoking. What is it that makes your reach for a cigarette? Being aware of your triggers allows you to both avoid and defuse them to stay smoke free.
Quitting smoking is not a one day event, it is a lifelong process. This is why it is important to have a plan of action with regard to stopping smoking. Having a plan will help you stay smoke free for the long haul.
One plan that is worth investigating is quit smoking hypnosis. Quit smoking hypnosis helps you re-program your attitudes and beliefs towards cigarettes so that you are no longer dependent on them for stress relief or any other form of psychological soothing. As a smoking cessation method, quit smoking hypnosis will teach you to transfer your emotional responses onto healthy activities instead. Try it—you will find that it helps you stay off tobacco in order to live a healthier life.
