5 Top Tips To Quit Smoking This Stoptober

5 Top Tips To Quit Smoking This Stoptober

Here at SMOKO we are all ex-smokers, so we know how difficult it can be to put the cigarettes down for good. In honour of Stoptober then we have collected the ones that helped us the most.

1. Set a Date To Quit Smoking Easily

Like any big undertaking quitting smoking needs a bit of planning. Most of us fall into the trap of pushing quitting off until tomorrow or the next week and keep putting it off and doing so indefinitely. The best thing you can do is give yourself a definite date (not too far in the future) and plan for it.

So buy only the cigarettes you need to last you until the big day and make sure you have the alternative product ready to go – whether it be e-cigarettes, patches or gum!

2. Don’t Try Going Cold Turkey

We've all heard of those super humans who just decided one day they weren't smokers any more and just stopped. And for a few people that works, but most people slip back into smoking after only a couple of days.

Most smokers have tried to give up cold turkey at one time or another, and if you can't do it then don't worry, you are not alone!

That's why we at SMOKO suggest e-cigarettes - they give you the nicotine you need to satisfy your cravings, but don't have the 4,000+ chemicals or 50 known carcinogens that cigarettes have.

E-cigarettes have also been shown to be one of the most effective way to quit, helping more people every day.

You can quit without all the pain that comes with going cold turkey!

3. Make it Public

Peer pressure is a powerful force, and even though we hate to admit it, it works just as well now as it did when we were teenagers.

Make it work for you though, and tell as many people that you know that you are quitting! People will notice if you start to slip and help you get back on the right path.

Plus when you do stay off the cigarettes the positive feedback you get can really help on the rougher days.

If you are serious about quitting, make sure that everyone you know knows about it.


4. Save Your Cigarette Money

As a smoker, cigarettes become just another essential part of the monthly budget, but even if you plan for cigarettes, it is still surprising how much it costs you. A great way to keep yourself motivated is to collect the money you would have spent on cigarettes.

This way you save money, and every time you waver you get a great visual reminder of how much money you have saved already.

Unlike your health, the money you save is very real and tangible and lets you see one of the positives of quitting smoking.

For example on average a smoker goes through about 20 cigarettes a day (19.4 a day is the exact number). If each pack of 20 costs £10.00 you are spending £70 a week.

Over a month that is £280.00!

Switching to SMOKO will roughly cost you £1.75 to £2.00 a day.  A pack of our refills contain 200 cigarettes worth of nicotine and the most you pay is £11.99 (that's a box of 5 refills).  So you would only need to spend between £30 to £40 a month to keep you happily!


5. Don't Be Too Hard On Yourself If You Fail

Even with all these tips you might still fall of the wagon and have a cigarette.

But don’t through in the proverbial towel and stop quitting!

All of us here had a cigarette after we were meant to have quit, but one cigarette doesn't mean you have failed.

Quitting is a process and as long as you get back on the wagon and keep going you have nothing to worry about. Stopping smoking is a marathon, not a sprint. It doesn't matter if you stumble once or twice, as long as you keep going.


So if you want to stop smoking, try some of our tips and see if one of our starter kits is right for you!
