STUB IT OUT | The Quit List

STUB IT OUT | The Quit List

As stoptober continues, those looking to give up the fags often don’t know where to start – but making a “quit list” is the perfect starting block, according to television and radio medical expert, Doctor Hillary Jones. 

“When you’re quitting an addiction, you need all the help you can get because some addictions are really powerful, and smoking is right up there. It’s challenging and you need reminders of why you’re doing this, constantly your brains saying ‘I want that pleasure again, I want that hit’ and the rational side of you is saying ‘you know this is harmful and I’m struggling to deal with this’ so a quit list is a really good idea”

“What you do is write down all the good reasons for giving up cigarettes and you write down all the benefits you will get from doing that – you look at that list all the day, every day and remind yourself whenever you’re feeling a little bit weak, when you might feel like giving into temptation and reaching for a cigarette – just one look to remind you of why your giving up can be really helpful”

“Get rid of all the visual cues as well that make you tempted, take up some form of physical activity – the evidence shows us that you’re twice as likely to stay smoke free for a year or more if you take up some form of physical activity. Think of what works for you and stick to it” 

There’ll be more advice on the Katie Trinder Breakfast Show and with Watko in the afternoon throughout October and Smoke Free Life Nottinghamshire, have some stop-smoking advisors in the Four Seasons and Idelwells Shopping Centre throughout October.
