By Tina Meadows, BSW :

First look at yourself in the mirror and tell yourself 3 reasons why you want to quit smoking. First reason-for my Children. Second reason-for my health & Third reason-to save money. Go as long as you can without a cigarette & when you can go 8 hours without a cigarette it’s time to quit. I had 3 cigarettes left & I smoked 1 in the morning, my 2nd cigarette I smoked in the afternoon & my 3rd cigarette I held it in between my fingers before I smoked it & I looked in the mirror & said to myself, Tina this is the last cigarette you will ever have, so you Best enjoy it & plan on not having no more cigarettes in the morning. Every time I thought about having a cigarette I would think about my 3 reasons why I wanted to quit & I would total up the amount of money I was saving every time I would want a cigarette & I would think about what I could be spending that money on that was more important, like my children.
