Use Chat Rooms to Help You Quit Smoking
Use Chat Rooms to Help You Quit Smoking Health care providers and those who study smoking
will tell you that one of the most important things a smoker needs when they are about to quit is a support team to
help them get through those most difficult first few weeks. This is the worst time for a smoker and they need
encouragement, a shoulder to lean on and someone who understands why they are no longer as easy going and relaxed.
Many smokers become irritable, confrontational and depressed during the early period after quitting. They need to
be able to rely on others to help them, understand their moods and listen to them express their frustration and
fears about quitting. This is great for people who have friends, co-workers and faintly to talk to, but not
everyone does. As well, even those who have lots of people they are close to find it difficult to discuss their
personal issues, even when its just smoking. For those who need to reach out but find it difficult they can turn to
chat rooms to talk to others with the same issues. There are many of these on the internet. They offer different
things depending on what you are looking for. Some of them are hosted by doctors who will be there to answer
questions and give advice. These rooms are a little different but they do feel a need. Sometimes being anonymous
gives the smoker the confidence to ask questions they think their own health care providers will find odd or
useless. So these rooms with doctors are quite popular. Most quit smoking chat rooms are filled with other smokers
who are thinking about quitting, in the middle of it or who have kicked the habit but need to keep in touch with
others to help them stay strong. Or maybe they just want to help. These rooms are the places that most smokers go
to talk. Topics are open as long as they are directly related to quitting. People here can discuss things that have
worked for them, how to avoid weight gain, or compare methods. For someone just thinking about smoking they may get
some good advice on methods to use. They will get the opinions of others who have tried the patch, inhalers,
sprays, medications or just going cold turkey. This kind of talk can help the smoker looking to quit see that it is
not hopeless, that there are many things that can be done and that lots of others who are just like them. That last
point can be a big step in quitting. Knowing that there are others going through the same issues, dealing with the
same problems and concerns, can give added strength to a smoker who felt all alone because none of their friends
are quitting. Many of the chat rooms also have bulletin board areas where you can go off to discuss specific issues
instead of spending time in a generalized chat room. All of them are open twenty four hours seven days a week which
means that anytime you need to talk there should be someone waiting to chat.
Trying To Quit Smoking Don't worry about tomorrow or next month or next year. Concentrate on achieving your goals for today. They can be as simple as making it through breakfast without a cigarette, avoiding the cigarette machine at work, getting up and walking away from the lunch table when others finish up their meals and get out the packs and light up.
