Most people understand the dangers of smoking. Even smokers are aware that if they smoke long enough they open themselves up to developing heart disease, emphysema, cancer and more. Most simply tell themselves they'll quit before things ever get to that point. The thing is, the longer a person smokes the tougher it is to quit, so it's in their interest to quit sooner rather than later. But how do you get a loved one to stop smoking? In this post, we'll provide a variety of ways that should help.
How to Get a Loved One to Stop Smoking: 8 Important Tips
Take the following tips to heart and you should find your loved one will be more willing to consider quitting.
- Don’t be afraid to get the conversation started
- Ask what you can do to help
- Listen to what they tell you
- Offer distractions
- Set up a reward system
- Be patient
- Acknowledge their efforts
- Introduce them to NicoBloc
NicoBloc is an easy-to-use smoking cessation system that allows a person to incrementally reduce the amount of tar and nicotine that they're inhaling. It has been an integral part of smoking cessation programmes in the UK and Ireland for more than a decade, and in that time it has helped countless people leave cigarettes behind for good. In fact, more than 60% of people who have participated in those programmes have stopped completely and a significant portion of those who didn’t quit continued using NicoBloc to dramatically reduce their tar and nicotine intake.
How NicoBloc Works
Since they were first introduced cigarette filters have been more for show than anything else. They were the tobacco industry’s way to respond to initial concerns voiced about smoking, but they did very little to prevent tar and nicotine from entering a person’s system and wreaking havoc.
NicoBloc takes the previously useless cigarette filter and transforms it into what it should be: an effective way to prevent tar and nicotine from ever reaching your lungs. NicoBloc is a viscous liquid that you drop onto the end of the cigarette filter just before you light up.
Place 1 drop on the filter and you will block 33% of tar and nicotine from being inhaled. Place 2 drops on the filter and you will block 66% of tar and nicotine. And place 3 drops on the filter and you will block up to 99% of all tar and nicotine from ever reaching your lungs.
Quitting cigarettes “cold turkey” can be done. But only a small percentage of people who try to quit that way actually see it through. Gradually reducing the number of cigarettes you smoke until you quit is another popular method, but it too has a low success rate. Why? Because even though the smoker is smoking fewer cigarettes they are still getting the tar and nicotine their addiction craves, which only strengthens the addiction.
NicoBloc employs the same tapering technique but with an important difference. As you progress from 1 drop to 2 drops to 3 drops your system receives less and less tar and nicotine and is able to gradually detox itself. By the time you’ve been using 3 drops for a couple of weeks the addiction no longer holds sway over your body and mind, making it much easier to take the leap to zero cigarettes.
