Most people who try to quit smoking end up failing. Some make it through the tough first few weeks, others get all the way past a year or two, but in the end, only a small minority manages to quit permanently.
So, what’s the secret? Is it just a roll of the dice as to who succeeds, are some people more determined than others, or do the smokers who stop forever have a better plan to refrain from going back to their old ways?
The difference between the winners and losers probably includes a combination of factors. Some people are more determined, while others are less motivated. Some have a better strategy, while others don’t even have a plan. Some really want to quit, while others are just trying to stop.
In order to give up smoking for good, you need to have the right attitude, technique and mental preparedness. At the end of the day, a lot of it comes down to having the right mindset.
