How to Be Tobacco-Free

Although we all know the dangers of smoking, there are still millions of people who are caught up in this unhealthy habit. But there is hope through smart strategies. If you want to quit, these tips from Medstar Health, a group of practitioners based in Maryland, Virginia and Washington, DC, can be a big help:

Make a plan, not just a resolution

Choosing a New Year resolution can be easy, but creating new habits takes time and energy. Making a plan with organized steps will help you stay committed to your goals.

Pick achievable, bite-sized goals

Think small! Tackling small-scale goals will prepare you to take on larger tasks. Schedule a consistent time devoted to achieving your goals, and you will get there slowly but surely.

 Write down resolutions (on paper or digitally)

Your goals may seem realistic in your head, but writing them down will help you achieve them in a stress-free and more efficient way. It’s also a great way to keep track of your progress.

 Focus on why you are making the change

Be honest with yourself, and make sure that you are doing what’s best for you. How will your resolutions contribute to your self-improvement?

define your motivation

If you’ve already lost the motivation to achieve your resolutions, don’t be afraid to start again! Instead of waiting for the new year, you can reset your intentions for 2022 right now.
