Help Needed To Stop Some Bad Habits

I will want to know what kind of help I can get to stop drinking and smoking cigarettes.

I actually started these bad habits while I was quite very young and now am almost 33. I use to drink so much of beer, smoke alot of cigarettes and weed as well. This got really bad when I traveled out of the country for studies and spent so many years out there. I think the weather and the fact that smoking is so normal there that even my lecturers and I do have chats together while smoking in the smoking area made me get so addicted.

Now I have completely stopped smoking weed for more than two years and I don't really take beer except once in a blue moon but the big problem is that I think though I left the frying pan, I am inside the fire because I smoke cigarettes like really bad and I am addicted to hot drinks like brandy or whisky. I cannot stay a day without these two and it's really annoying me.

I want to settle down now and start looking forward to marriage and a beautiful family life so I really want to do myself the favor of living a wealthy life for my wife and kids. I don't want to be an irresponsible husband and father so please I really need all the help I can get on how to stop this habits.

Please I will love to here from you all in this section especially the professionals if there are drugs or medications I can take to stop these habits.

Thanks for wanting a change.. It won't be an easy ride though but with strong will and determination you'll scurry through this phase too

You've dropped off some, have you taken the steps you took to see if it can work??

I've tried not engaging myself in some vices by telling myself until I've convinced my mind it isn't worth it..

You can actually start from it's written smokers are liable to die young.. I don't want to die young so cigarette stay away from me..

This works perfectly fine for me.. Try it out but if not I guess other people commenting later will likely give you tips too

I pray God will help you because most times the spirit is willing but the flesh is weak

Lalasticlala wide audience please for wider suggestions that will help this young man out

It's all about conviction. The temptation would be massive but then you can overcome if you want to. Go around with a bottle of water everywhere you go.

Also, Dont try quitting abruptly. It has to be gradual..

This is a tough call to make because addictions can be really hard to beat down...but it's workable if you discipline yourself.

Help Needed To Stop Some Bad Habits

I will want to know what kind of help I can get to stop drinking and smoking cigarettes.

I actually started these bad habits while I was quite very young and now am almost 33.

Please I will love to here from you all in this section especially the professionals if there are drugs or medications I can take to stop these habits.

Yes my friend, you actually stop these bad habits, let me tell you how :
> Realising that a problem exists is half way to solving the problem. That you have done already
> Determination to succeed is the first step to success. I'm glad you have already taken the first step
> As per the cigarette, you prolly would have already entered a stage of dependence and so sudden withdrawal may not be advisable due to side effects of nicotine withdrawal. I advise you have a mental determination to cut down on the number of sticks per day, then per week etc. If you take 5sticks per day, tell yourself you wanna take only 3........after a week, cut down to two, then one then off.
> Stay away from peers and negative social influence who may pressure you to smoke or drink
> There is something called a nicotine patch or gum, it's very helpful for stoppage of smoking. Very helpful.
Lastly, how do you fancy your lungs and liver looking this way in 10-15yrs time?

1. Decide and settle within your mind that you want to stop those habit
2. Be born again
3. Stop hanging out with your friends that drink or smoke, meet new friends so you wouldn't be influenced
4. Replace beer with Water - always drink water or soft drink in a cup. This is called replace strategy
5. Instead of hot drinks/brandies start drinking pepper soup
6. Instead of cigarette start mimicking smoking with those bic biro covers that has holes
7. Don't think you can stop at once but start reducing what you smoke or drink by little less quantity or sticks per day
8 Thank me later

With Love from an ex-addict grin

With all henosty these habits were perfected out of the fact that you took them as hubby...

Simply search for a new habit to occupy the urge positively...

Bcoz the best way to quit a bad habit is to create barriers that will make you stop.

I think is this high time for you to stop moving with some friends and stop going to bear parlour, clubs or pepper soup joint. Be focus and and have a strong will to drop the bad habits that you are addicted to. Although you never mentioned friends in your post but I know friends too can add to what is on ground here.
