Nicotinell can help you be twice as likely to succeed when you cut down gradually versus willpower alone.
Quitting smoking at times can feel daunting and isolating. You may find it easier to start reducing the amount you smoke rather than giving up altogether and going "cold turkey".
Here is some useful information from Nicotinell to help you reduce to quit:
1 . When you have decided to reduce the amount you smoke, be determined to make it happen, even if you haven't succeeded before.
2 . Take it one day at a time and plan how you are going to reduce the amount you smoke - perhaps think about the time of day you enjoy smoking the least and cut out those cigarettes first.
3 . Set a specific date when you are going to reduce the amount you smoke and try to stick with it.
4 . It may help to reduce the amount you smoke at the same time as a friend so that you have extra support.
5 . Tell your friends and family that you are attempting to give up smoking so they can encourage and support you on your journey.
6 . Track how much you are saving with the Nicotinell savings calculator and use the money to treat yourself so you feel rewarded for your efforts and are motivated to continue.
7 . Plan ahead to avoid situations where you might be tempted to have a cigarette.
8 . If you have a craving for a cigarette try to distract yourself by taking physical exercise or doing something that you really enjoy.
9 . Try to keep active as this will help to maintain your weight as you quit smoking.
11. Download the Nicotinell mobile app for your iPhone or Android from www.nicotinell.co.uk, which may help you to stay motivated by giving you lots of handy tips and hints.
