17Set milestones

Some people get afraid of not being able to smoke again. If you are one of them, then set small milestones for yourself. Try to go smoke-free for 2 hours. Then 3 to 5 hours and stretch it as per your wishes till you hit 12 hours or a day without smoking. Then visit a café or a bar and resist the urge to smoke when you are with friends. Before you know it, you will be smoke-free and breathing fresher air. You will feel good about yourself, that’s a guarantee.
