If you’ve stumbled upon this page, you’re probably looking to learn how to quit smoking. Did you know that smoking is the no.1 preventable cause of death in the world? It kills more people annually than AIDS, Heroin, Cocaine, Alcohol, Car Accidents, Fires and Murders COMBINED!
When I was in high school I took puffs on numerous occasions when I was offered by friends. The ability of bonding easily with another person holding a cigarette was interesting. However, I discovered that smoking contains more cons than pros. I also understood the fact that no one in this world can stop me if I chose to continue smoking. It’s the same that no one in this world could stop you if you chose to value your body and stop.
- Decide To Quit Smoking
Like I have said before, no one in this world can stop you if you WANT to continue. Words like ‘I can stop’ or ‘I will try my best to..’ are all hogwash. Anything containing ‘will’, ‘can’, ‘try’ is a sign of a plan waiting to fail. Ask anyone that you may come across who has successfully stopped smoking. They did it because they ‘WANT’ to not because they ‘can’ or ‘will try’. The remaining tips on how to quit smoking below will only work when a true, genuine decision is made. You will lose friends. You will quit drinking. You will start a new life. You must lose all your excuses before you can find results.
The first thing to do when a decision is made to stop smoking is to THROW AWAY all your cigarettes and matches. Give your lighters and ashtrays to your favorite pub. Tell the person who has been serving you at the pub, ‘thank you’ and leave. Out of sight, out of mind.

Basically, losing weight and belly fat fast equals eating less and burning more. To achieve results in a much shorter time, you need to raise awareness of what goes in your mouth and burning more than you eat, which you automatically achieve when you lift weights. You will also need to buy your own groceries and prepare your own food to ensure proper nutrition.
- Lift Weights
Train hard. Split 3 days alternatively into push (chest & shoulders), pull (back), legs. Workout Monday, rest Tuesday, workout Wednesday, etc. Do core strengthening exercises at the end of each workout. Repeat continuously. The calorie burning effects of weight lifting continues even after your workout. Even when you sleep. The more muscles you have, the more it takes for your body to maintain them. If you have the time, include cardio exercises but know that they do not have weight lifting’s continuous post workout effect.
- Stay Fuller On Less Calories
Stop carbohydrates. Avoid everything starchy like bread, potato and rice. Fill up on fiber instead. Make vegetables consist of at least 60% of every meal. Broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, lettuce, celery. These five vegetables are among the top 10 for fiber content. Fruits contain high fiber too, but they are high in sugar as well. You might want to consider following these awesome diet plans.
- Stay Fuller Longer
Protein will keep you feeling fuller longer than carbohydrate or fat. The RDI for protein for an average person is about 55g a day (2 chicken breasts). A weightlifter should consume at least twice that amount of protein. Consume more eggs, fish, pork loin, lean beef, tofu, beans, and yogurt. When you consume enough protein, you will keep your appetite under control naturally.
