Psychology Smoking Cessation Literature That Term Paper

Excerpt from Term Paper :

I have also noticed I have a tendency to eat more, as I worried about. Part of that is the oral gratification missing when I do not smoke, but I have also found that food simply tastes better now that I am not smoking, and I find myself eating more, as a result. I am attempting to monitor this so I do not gain weight, as so many people do in the course of their intervention.

Another con is that I have been irritable, suffered from headaches, and have been short with some of the people trying to aid me in my intervention. I know this is common during smoking cessation, but it makes the process more difficult, and makes me feel dreadful as well.

and achievement, and I feel promise for the future. My health is already beginning to improve, (I breathe better). Another happy result is that I have received far less negative feedback than I originally anticipated. For the most part, friends and family have been incredibly supportive, and I have come to fully appreciate friends and how important they really are when going through a situation such as this.

I believe that I continue to be successful in this stage of intervention, and I look forward to moving into the maintenance stage. I believe if there was anything I might modify in the future, it would be to have begun this process sooner, and to spend more time in preparation stage, in order to anticipate some of the cons I am experiencing, and to create solutions that I could have put into use earlier in the intervention. I believe that including the advice and support of doctors and other experts has helped me tremendously, and I would recommend using these support mechanisms to others looking to quit smoking.
