How can I
quit smoking?

At Dr. Bunny Vreeland’s practice the philosophy is that there's no one way to quit smoking that works for everyone. A
smoking cessation program may be helpful to you. Ask your doctor about smoking cessation programs in your community. As a board certified Clinical Hypnotherapist, I know that hypnosis can be extremely successful for most clients. Some things that will help you ease the process are:

1. Pick a date to
stop smoking, and then get ready for it.

2. Record when and why you smoke. You will come to know what triggers you to smoke.

3. Record what you do when you smoke. Try smoking at different times and different places to break the connections between smoking and certain activities.

4. List your reasons for quitting. Read over the list before and after you quit.

5. Find activities to replace smoking. Be ready to do something else when you want to smoke.

6. Ask yourself, “What do I do when I quit smoking?”

What happens when I quit smoking?
After 20 minutes of not smoking:

1. You stop polluting the air.

2. Your blood pressure and pulse decrease.

3. The temperature of your hands and feet increases
