Reward yourself

Well done. It’s not easy, but quitting smoking is the best single thing you can do for your health and your overall quality of life. Your hard work deserves to be rewarded, no matter how little time it’s been since you stopped.

Quitting smoking is the best single thing you can do for yourself. Remember the good things that are happening to your body. Now that you’ve stopped smoking, your body can start to heal and reverse the damage from cigarettes.

Pat yourself on the back from time-to-time and think about the good things about being a non-smoker.

It’s also a good time to stop and think about your new life now:

  • More money: Smoking is expensive! Find out how much you’re saving
  • More time: Every packet takes away around 2½ hours of your time, imagine what else you could do now?
  • Better smelling: Everyone around from family, workmates and friends to will appreciate the fact you no longer smell of smoke every time you come near;
  • Feel healthier: Gradually you’ll feel healthier and family and friends will have less to worry about on that front.

Remind yourself of the benefits of not smoking.
