Convince an Adult to Stop Smoking

Friday, February 27, 2009

Smoking is harmful! You may know an adult who smokes on a regular basis.

Show your friend or relative through your actions and words that you love them. Give him or her the message that you care about their health.
Ask about their smoking history. When did they start? What got them started? Have they tried to quit before and how? Be tactful. It will help if you understand how difficult or how easy it might be for them to quit, and do they really want to. Many smokers are ready to consider quitting.
Be aware of and research techniques for quitting smoking. Ask them how they feel about chewing nicotine gum or a lozenge instead of smoking cigarette.
Offer to buy the first batch yourself, if the response is positive, or if they have expressed interest in quitting! Just surprise them to give nicotine chewing gum as a gift.
Be encouraging and positive. Always tell them they can do it.
Do research on the harmful effects of smoking and some of the ingredients.
After learning about cigarettes and smoking, confront this person and share the information.
Get someone else that cares about them to help.

Introduce him or her to a new friend or hobby you think they can enjoy instead of cigarettes.
Tell them that they might have to try quitting several times until they are successful.
Tell them the dangers of smoking-it contains rat poison and hydrogen cyanide.
Tell them that it will make them look older and give them a series of strokes of they don't stop.

Be prepared for the long haul, as much as they may want to quit, nicotine addiction can be hard to overcome. Many attempts may be necessary! Stay positive and supportive.
Always keep in mind that it is a life choice that your friend or relative have made. Smoking is an addiction and may be very difficult for one to give it up completely.
Some smokers just simply don't want to quit, and in some cases its unfair to keep pushing them.
If you breathe in the smoke, you will actually be worse than the smoker.
Just walking into a smoke-filled room for 30 seconds can damage your arteries.
