We all know that being tobacco-free is essential to a healthy life. Here are some pointers for quitting:

Make it your idea. I talk about smoking cessation every day. But I can tell which way things are going to go pretty quickly by asking just one simple question: "Do you want to quit?" People who truly want to quit are generally successful. Those who don't find it more challenging.

Make it convenient. Ashtrays, matches, or lighters can all trigger your desire to smoke. When you plan your quit date, make sure that these reminders are out of the way, too.

Don't avoid medication. Understandably, many people seek a natural approach to lifestyle changes. But research data confirms: It's very hard to quit on your own. Nicotine addiction is an acquired medical condition. Talk to your doctor about smoking cessation aids. They can double your chances of quitting successfully.

Quitting isn't easy - that's why so many people try it several times before succeeding. But with a goal in mind, smoking accessories out of sight, and the help of some medications, you can finally kick the habit.

Very nasty, should be a clear warning to any smokers for what they are doing to themselves.

Sad fact that even smokers are too aware of it as packed of cigarettes have big warning signs. On some countries that even put such kind of photos to packs but still they would buy it.
So it was right as mentioned above that "People who truly want to quit are generally successful. Those who don't find it more challenging"

My husband is a smoking addict. He just cannot quit smoking even after he had a heart attack earlier last year. The doctor told him to stop smoking. He kept telling me that he will but when he goes out to meet his friends, he'll smoke. He'll smoke every time he's with his friends. I don't know what else to say to him. He's not young anymore. He's already half a century old. I should show him this image to scare him but I don't think it will have any effect on him. He sees such images on the cigarette boxes every time he lights up a cigarette and it doesn't make him want to quit. I've already given up. It's his life. Only he can decide if he wants to quit. If he does it for me, it will not last. He has to want to quit. I guess he's not ready yet to quit.

@UmiNoor u can be the person who inspire him to quit. don't give up in encouraging him
I thought that I can be his inspiration to quit smoking but the pulling power of a cigarette is much stronger than the love that I can give him. All I can do now is pray that he will want to quit smoking on his own. I've met a few smokers who have quit smoking and the common theme in their road to quitting smoking is that one must want to quit smoking. If it's motivated by outside forces, it's going to be challenging.

Ever considered electronic cigarettes? Because its less powerful, can be used to help quitting. Slowly tone down the urge.

I have the same problem with my brother. He puff almost everyday from morning until night time. And, I'm tired raising my voice and reminding him about the effects of smoking. He's not listening, anyways.

That picture is scary and if I was a smoker I would stop immediately after seeing it. The body parts look as if they have been cooked! The sad thing is that these smokers know what smoking will do to their lungs and other body parts but the addiction is so strong one would rather die slowly than stop smoking.

I think every cigarette pack should be stamped with those photos on the cover. :D To discourage smokers from smoking. :)

Pictures like that are already stamped on every cigarette pack in Singapore. It can help in some ways to deter people, but IMO once smokers get used to those pictures, it lose its "shock" factor.

Somehow that is true. Once people are "immune" they wont be bothered by it at all. My dad used to be a chain smoker.. A decade ago, more or less. Only the Bible was able to help him change. :p
