Here are some things you can tell your wife to do:
~List your reasons to quit and read them several
times a day.
~Wrap your cigarette pack with paper and
rubber bands. Each time you smoke, write
down the time of day, how you feel, and how
important that cigarette is to you on a scale of
1 to 5.
~Rewrap the pack.
~Keep reading your list of reasons and add to it
if you can.
~Don't carry matches, and keep your cigarettes
out of easy reach.
~Each day, try to smoke fewer cigarettes,
and try not to smoke the ones that aren't
~Set a target date to quit.
~Don't buy a new pack until you finish the one
~Try to stop for 48 hours at one time.
~Quit smoking completely. Throw out all
cigarettes and matches. Hide lighters
~Stay busy! Go to the movies, exercise, take
long walks, go bike riding.
~Avoid situations and "triggers" you relate
~Find healthy substitutes for smoking.
Try not to be upset if she has a relapse. It is hard to quit cold turkey.
Best Wishes to you and your wife,
