Think about your daily habitual smoking behavior and consider how it repeats itself on a consistent basis. Sure there are possibly deeply rooted underlying feelings that control your habit, but that comes later. For now, just look at your smoking habit as a 24 hour process before you break it down even further hour by hour, so you can begin to create a daily quit smoking plan to keep your new years resolution of giving up smoking.
Make 3 columns: When I smoke, why I smoke, what else I could do. Start from the time you get up or wake up. Think about the various things you could do in the morning besides reach for your cigarettes. As your day progresses, consider all the times you light up. In your list of why’s, try to get creative. Instead of convincing yourself there’s nothing more going on than you simply want to smoke, analyze each time of the day. Think about your various cigarette smoking triggers like paying bills, watching television, breaking at work, eating a meal, dealing with personality conflict, etc.
Don’t worry about how it sounds or if you can’t get too deep, this is just the beginning. Taking your goals to pen and paper puts them in another light and allows you to examine them differently. But dont worry, we do take you through a similar process when you attend one of our offices to quit smoking using our program. Identifying your triggers and your reasons to change is extremely powerful anytime you want to change any habit or behaviour.

On the days that follow, modify your plan as each craving to smoke arises throughout the day, not only questioning your need to smoke a cigarette, but also coming up with positive contrary actions you could take to assist your efforts to break the habit.
