Tip #25: Habit adjustments

 

It’s no secret that getting rid of an existing habit is hard. To be honest, it’s one of the hardest things one can decide to do. The connection between smoking and health damages is known and familiar, yet many people with an incentive of their own well being still smoke, and many struggle with quitting.

Having the experience I have now, I can’t imagine quitting something I’ve been doing on a daily (even hourly) basis for years. Yet I figured that these last months were very educational for me regarding the definition of habits changing. 

The most important thing one can do to improve the outcome of a bad existing habit is to set a sane goal. Just like diets, physical activity, skin care. Sleep hygiene, same goes for quitting smoking - the process should be gradual in order for you to experience success, and the goal should be achievable, relevant and rewarding. That’s just how it is: some habits are hard to change and some are much simpler… a kind reminder to upgrade your healthy well being by a click and enjoy our radiation blocking charger - same habit, just safer.

I recently heard someone who quitted smoking sharing one of his own tricks: he said that for a month he kept calling his cigarettes “lung disease” (“I’m going out for a lung disease”, or “when is your lung disease break?” etc.). For more than two months nothing else changed, and he kept laughing at his own joke, until something did change. This guy still smokes, but way less. It’s not about going all the way on one shot. It is about wisely implementing the change you wish to have in your life.
