In Jordan, smoking is one of the most addictive habits common around society. From very young teens to elders, almost everyone smokes! Reading about the harms of smoking might get one to stop smoking. But how?

Here are some tips that might help someone quit:

  • Start exercising – the need for nicotine is reduced with exercise, as dopamine and serotonin are released.
  • Yoga – can release stress much like a cigarette does, or in fact even better
  • Pros and cons – write down why you want to quit, and keep reminding yourself
  • Train your mind – start tricking your mind that cigarette smoke is not something you like

With perseverance and hard work, anyone can quit smoking and enjoy a healthier lifestyle!
