Do these four things (A-D), which will make quitting easier and couple be the keys to your success.
Quitting day’s almost here—it’s time to start getting your bod ready to fight future cravings.
Start taking buproprion: On day 30, two days before you actually stop smoking, take one tablet in the morning.
Keep taking buproprion: On day 31, take one tablet in the morning. BREAK
Step 3 Break the Habit
Today’s the day you stop smoking. If you’ve done the prep, you’re ready.
On day 32, QUIT: Throw away all cigarettes, and get rid of ashtrays any other smoking-related objects.
Put on a nicotine patch. Place one on your arm, thigh or chest (you’ll be doing this daily for a while).
Take your buproprion: One in the a.m. and one at night.
Here are your daily to-dos for days 33 through 61.
Take two: Increase your buproprion to two tablets per day—one in the morning and one at night.
Patch up: Put on a new one each day. (And don’t forget to take the old one off!)
Keep walking: Every day, for 30 minutes.
Reach out: Check in with your buddy.
Drink up: Have as much coffee, tea or water as you wish.
Step 4: Enjoy Life as an Ex-Smoker
Making it through a month without smoking is a huge accomplishment. It’s time to celebrate the new YOU! Here are some to-dos for day 62 and beyond.
Breathe in: Enjoy how quitting has made your lungs happier.
Push yourself: Use your newfound vitality to start a strength-building routine. But take it slowly; don’t increase your physical activity by more than 10 percent a week.
Love life without the patch: Every two months, decrease the dose of your nicotine patch by one-third. Your goal’s to be patch free after six months.
Say bye-bye, buproprion: But make it a slow goodbye. At five months, decrease your buproprion to one tablet at night, and aim to be off it entirely by your eight-month anniversary. Tip: Just in case you feel a craving, for the rest of your life carry one buproprion tablet with you at all times, so you can take it if you need to.
