If people want to stop drinking alcohol or smoking what should they do?
First of all people really must want to stop! This needs
a clear decision and a strong will, because it is not easy to stop.
Secondly, the person has to think about the situations where he or she feels the ÔøΩneedÔøΩ to smoke or drink. This is usually with a specific group of friends, at a party, after hard work, after or with eating. So if people want to quit smoking or drinking they have to change their habits and lifestyle to avoid temptations.
A first step to stop could be by setting targets: e.g. not to smoke the whole week. Reward yourself if you reached your target. If you once failed, start again. Very few people manage stopping completely at the first trial. Most people are not able to only reduce but have to stop completely.
