Although every former smoker has their own unique story on how they quit smoking, there are some tried and true how to quit smoking methods that have worked well over the years. Don't put too much pressure on yourself, you can always try out different methods and work your way onto telling your own how to quit smoking story.

*Try smoking fewer cigarettes than usual. For many smokers, holding out few hours without smoking can prove very difficult. Familiarize yourself with the sensation and understand how difficult it can be. I know what you are saying, "Why the practice run for the suffering?" Some smokers get very panicky when they first experience a serious withdrawal symptom. It's much like dipping your toe in the pool before jumping in. You do not want to be discouraged to a point where you can't even imagine yourself ever quitting smoking.

*Skip the entire morning smoking session. Experience what happens when you don't jump start your day with your nicotine fix. This is different from just holding out a few hours without smoking. You'll try to spend an entire morning without smoking a single cigarette.
