One Best Way To Quit Smoking

You must have the desire to quit smoking that's why you are here.  That desire will greatly help you succeed.
Desire is the starting point of all achievement, not a hope, not a wish, but a keen pulsating desire, which transcends everything.
>>Napoleon Hill

Obviously, posters like this didn't help.

Probably you must have thought that you can't do it.
What we can or cannot do, what we consider possible or impossible, is rarely a function of our true capability. It is more likely a function of our beliefs about who we are.
>>Anthony Robbins

You are as strong as you think you are, you can achieve things you think you can achieve, its all in your head.

Most of the best things in the world do not come very easy.  So, the one best way to quit smoking is not going to be simple but possible.

The Best Way To Quit Smoking Is To Find Someone or Something That Will Motivate You To Stop Smoking
There are many people and many things around you that may motivate you to quit smoking, but find the one that can motivate you more than your urge to puff a stick.  Many people have done this but sadly, it's saving their lives from the brink of death that motivated them.  I heard of people quit smoking because of serious illnesses.  If they don't quit, they are going to die in the next few months.  We all have heard about smoking shortens our life span but realization only comes when it becomes personal.  When somebody tells you that you only have a few days to live.

If you can't find that someone of something that can motivate you more than your urge to smoke, then these steps might help you:

1.  Prepare Yourself and Your Environment
a. Set a date to stop smoking.  But, remember this:
The secret of getting ahead is getting started
>>Mark Twain

There will never be a “perfect” time to quit smoking. A time when you don’t have any distractions or stress. If you had started today one year ago, this would not even be an issue for you today! Don’t waste another year!

b. Learn from people who have successfully quit smoking.  Ask what they did and make list of the things that might work for you.

c. Tell your family, your friends and other people around you so that they will be aware of it.  Some of these people might discourage you that you might not succeed, but many of them may encourage you and help you get through it.

d. If you have tried and failed before, review your past attempts and learn from it.  Think about what work and what didn't.

e. Clean your house from anything that may remind you to smoke.  If there are other people in the house that smoke, you can tell them not to smoke in your presence, or better encourage them to stop smoking and go through the process altogether.

2.  Remember N.O.P.E.
Once you have started to stop smoking, remember N.O.P.E., Not-One-Puff-Ever.  Most probably in the middle of the quitting process you might think that 'one stick will not hurt' you especially if you're in the middle of an urge.  Do not argue with your urge because the probability of your defeat is too high.  Just don't listen.  Just ignore.  One puff will lead to another, and soon you're not quitting anymore, you're smoking.

3.  Tell People of Your Progress
Share it, Twitter it, Facebook it, Google+ it, Pinterest it, Instagram it, email it, make use of all your social networking accounts to tell people of your progress.   You may learn that there are others out there too who are in the process of quitting to smoke and learn from each other.

4.  Make It Through The Most Difficult Week
The most difficult part to quit smoking is the withdrawal stage especially in the first few days.  Most people call this the "Hell Week".  Once you passed this stage, things begin to get a little less difficult, stronger urge comes only occassionally, the rest or the urges become lighter.  Then after that, everything will be smooth sailing and you have successfully quit smoking.

5.  Don't Quit
If you fail in the process, don't quit, get up and learn from your mistakes.  People fail numerous times and you're not that different.  People succeed because they did not quit.  You will succeed if you will not quit going through the process of quitting smoking.
Our greatest glory is not in never failing but in rising up every time we fail
>>Ralph Waldo Emerson

Most people, who have quit smoking, have had at least one unsuccessful try in the past. It is not important how many times you try to quit. The only important thing is, that eventually you stay quit
Failure is simply the opportunity to begin again, this time more intelligently.
>>Henry Ford

Every time you try to quit smoking you are actually getting closer to staying smoke free.

Always think positive.
