Preparing To Be A Non-Smoker

Pre-Treatment Tasks

Reasons To Quit Cards

Every time you smoke a cigarette an automatic chain of smoking responses are activated.

Feel craving - reach for packet - remove cigarette - put in mouth - light up - and so on.

Because this chain is repeated every time you smoke it is very difficult to break and becomes automatic behaviour.

Having to remove the elastic band from around your cigarettes and read out loud your reasons to quit provides an extra step in the chain. This is intended to interrupt the behaviour at the very beginning and eventually stop it in its tracks.
