Have you ever paid attention to the situations that make you want to smoke cigarettes?
If you try to do so then you will find that most of the time it’s because of an emotional reason that you smoke and not because of the addiction to nicotine.
And that emotional reason can be one of the following:
- To Control Stress
- To Calm Down
- To Control Anxiety
- To Overcome Emotional Disturbance
It must be clear to you by now that you feel the urge to smoke because of the above psychological reasons. Whenever you feel stressed or feel bad about something you start smoking and have become used to it.
You think that smoking will relieve you of your current emotional state or let you escape from your emotions.
But unfortunately, things don’t work like that at all. Smoking pushes you even further in health problems and makes your return journey from stress even more difficult.
If you want to live a healthy and stress-free life you’ve to be determined about quitting smoking and to do that you have to target the root cause for your addiction to smoking rather than finding reasons to smoke.
As mentioned above nicotine addiction is not the real reason that is making you want to smoke in fact psychological and emotional factors are the real driving forces behind your urge to smoke.
Now let’s get to the business of how to quit smoking and eradicate it totally from your life.
The first step is to find the real emotional reasons that are making you weak and preventing you from quitting this deadly habit. Once you figure it out you have to deal with it and eliminate it from your life.
And one great way of doing that is ‘Meditation’ or ‘Anuloma Viloma’ Pranayama.

If you are stressed and feeling the urge to smoke then you need to learn to manage your stress instead of how to stop yourself from smoking. This is the best and the fastest way to quit smoking or any other bad habit.
So I hope that you find this post useful to quit one of the most harmful habits in the world.
Just remember that it doesn’t matter how much you think that life has been unfair to you and how old your habit of smoking has become, with a little bit of determination, you can come out of it stronger and better.
Meditate, exercise and eat well on a regular basis to look forward to a super awesome version of yourself on the other side of the tough journey.
