Finding it hard to quit smoking?
Why not try cutting-down gradually - and see the benefits?
So we’ve had Stoptober, we’re just coming to the end of Lent, and the Covid-19 respiratory virus is, although thankfully currently abating, still present – but are you finding that despite all motivations and best intentions, you just can’t quit smoking?
Fear not! Even if all you can do is slightly reduce the number of cigarettes you smoke each day, the benefits of cutting down are undeniable – health improvements, prolonged life expectancy, and the possibility of making it easier for yourself to quit completely in the future. Gradually cutting down on smoking is the most effective way for many people to quit, and Acetium is the perfect product to aid this process, as it helps to rid you of nicotine addiction in stages – making for an easier and more realistic transition to a healthier way of life.
The longer you have been smoking, the harder it is to quit, and the better it is to take a step-by-step approach. A lot of people swear by going ‘cold turkey’ and immediately cutting out all cigarettes, but research has shown that this is actually the least effective method of kicking the habit. A little like attempting a crash diet, that might work well for a couple of weeks but then is such a huge change to your lifestyle that it becomes unsustainable and consequently fails, quitting smoking cold turkey may be too much to deal with, especially with the added pressures of lockdown that we are all currently facing.
Instead of ‘quitting’ you could make the decision to cut down – maybe only smoking two thirds of each cigarette, or leaving out the first or last smoke of each day. This will have a strong psychological effect, and rather than really missing the cigarettes you’re not having, you may find that you’re eager to test yourself by cutting down more as the benefits become apparent. In fact, it has been shown that the willingness to quit smoking completely in the future is greater in those who have cut down than in those who have not tried at all.
So lets concentrate on the benefits of cutting down on your habit. Everyone knows that smoking can seriously damage your health, but cutting down the amount of cigarettes smoked will decrease the damage done, and give your body more of a chance to repair itself. Logically, the fewer cigarettes you smoke, the less harmful substances enter your body – substances such as nicotine, tar and carbon monoxide, the ingredients of tobacco smoke that are most dangerous to heart and lung function. After just one unsmoked cigarette, the body already starts working to counteract any harmful effects, with the carbon monoxide from tobacco being eliminated in about a day, and nicotine in two days.
Of course, smoking less will also save you money, although these savings may not be all that they seem. For example, if you decide to use a nicotine replacement therapy (NRT) product to help you cut down, you have to remember that any savings made on cigarettes may instead go to funding an addiction to the NRT, as your body hasn’t had a chance to overcome nicotine addiction but merely switched it away from the cigarettes and towards the NRT product. With Acetium, you have a chance to cut the spend on smoking without having to replace it with spending on other products, as Acetium is nicotine-free and actually helps to wean you off nicotine addiction over time, due to its unique mode of action.
If you really want to cut-down on smoking, the help of the right product can be key to your success. Acetium is ideal for people wanting to decrease the amount they smoke, as it works gradually to combat the habit. It’s also really easy to use – simply take one lozenge every time you smoke a cigarette, and with regular use you will find that the need to smoke becomes less and less – helping you to cut down or even quit completely if that is your goal. You will then not only have a healthier lifestyle, but a healthier bank balance too!
