Just about everyone knows that not smoking can reduce the risk of heart disease and cancer, but if you are one of the people who already smoke, how do you quit? Try this. Schedule your smoking at certain times through the day, for example don't smoke from 8:00 a.m. until noon, and then plan to smoke a cigarette at 1:00 p.m., even if it's not a good time or place and you don't want one. This routine may help to weaken the connection certain activities such as waking up, driving a car, or eating a meal have with smoking. So make a schedule and stick to it.
