Dr. Fisch’s 4 Fruitful Tips On How To Quit

If you’re considering vasectomy or vasectomy reversal NYC services, you should make sure that you are healthy enough to have children. That means knocking out any bad habits such as a poor diet, lack of exercise, and above all, smoking.

Smoking in the United States has declined dramatically. But that’s not to say it doesn’t exist anymore. Many young people still pick it up in high school or college under the impression that they’ll just smoke socially, only to eventually grow addicted and end up becoming heavy smokers for the next twenty plus years of their lives. Then, when they finally settle down with the loves of their lives, they find that all that smoking has heavily impacted their ability to conceive a healthy baby.

There is little argument left against the notion that smoking cigarettes can affect a man’s fertility. There is simply too much evidence to deny. That’s why if you are a smoker who has plans of one day having a baby, now’s the time to start thinking about quitting. Not tomorrow. Not next week. Now. And we’re going to help you do it. Here is our foolproof plan to putting the cancer sticks behind you.

1. Set a deadline

It’s time to sit down and really think about when you’re going to make this thing official. You can do it at the turn of an event, like the beginning of the work week. Or if there’s an upcoming holiday. Keeping things up is easier when you can mark the date that you said goodbye to cigarettes.

2. Don’t try to do this alone

Get support from your peers and family. If they’re good friends, and they see that you are determined to make a positive change in your life, then they will want to help you through it. Save the date and make sure people know. This should help you build a sort of checks and balances system that will prevent you from going back on your word.

3. Monitor your habits and learn what triggers your urges

The more you know about yourself and what makes you tick, the easier it will be to keep those triggers under control. Anticipation and foresight are your friends when it comes to fending off urges. If you know in advance that seeing people smoke on TV, or consuming alcohol, or any number of other triggers tend to set you off, then you can train yourself to more effectively fight that urge off before it overcomes you.

4. Do some research on what has worked for other people and keep your options open

Ask around and see how others managed to do it. There are a million ways to quit smoking. It’s your responsibility to figure out which one is going to work best for you. The first try may not be the one that works. But eventually, with enough determination, you will make it happen. It’s just matter of taking initiative and willing to try new methods until you find the one for you.
