Best Bet to Stop Smoking...Do it on a Whim

In an article on Yahoo! News today, studies have shown that people who stop smoking on a whim with no planning at all are more likely to be successful at stopping smoking than people who have a plan of attack.

Here are some excerpts from the article:

"Putting a lot of thought and planning into quitting smoking may not be the best route to success, a new study finds."

"A very large proportion, probably about half, of attempts to stop smoking are made without any pre-planning at all," said lead researcher Robert West, a professor of health psychology at University College London. "People just suddenly decide to quit and do it."

Not only do about 50 percent of quitters decide to quit suddenly, but they are more successful at quitting, West added."

"Stopping smoking suddenly may reflect a more complete intellectual switch -- the kind of shift that can turn a smoker into a nonsmoker, West said. "The triggers that cause this kind of shift can be very small -- having a cold, something someone says, or even a storm outside when one's run out of cigarettes."

To read the complete story, go to Yahoo! News.

Make it a great day, and if you want to stop smoking, just do it right now! Don't plan...don't procrastinate...Just do it!
