Why You Should Stop Smoking
Do you need help with reasoning why you should stop smoking? This decision making chart can help you sort out the pros and cons of both quitting smoking and, not quitting. Nearly 100% of the people I have counseled on quitting smoking have never been truly "ready" to quit smoking, even when they were at the visit to quit smoking. It's not uncommon to feel hesitant or unsure about quitting smoking. Smoking has probably played a significant role in your life. On a scale of 0-10, how motivated are you to quit? What would get you to the next highest number? Are you afraid of failing, or afraid of experiencing nicotine withdrawal? It's important to verbalize these fears and anxieties. Most of the people I have worked with find that their fears never come true. This chart can further help you sort out some of your feelings and reasons to stop smoking.
