    Quit Smoking

    Pranayama or breathing exercises are recommended to deal with this addiction. It is often due to stress and anxiety that one wants to smoke. By changing your breathing pattern, you can relieve yourself from anxiety and stress. Pranayama calms your mind and harmonises the functioning of your body mind and soul. Ultimately it reduces your craving to smoke cigarettes. Nadishodhi Pranayama is a very effective yoga breathing exercise.


    • Sit cross legged or in any comfortable position by keeping your spine straight. Close your eyes and relax your whole body.
    • Close your right nostril with your right thumb. Inhale and exhale 5 times through your left nostril. Take deep breaths while breathing.
    • Close your left nostril with your ring finger. Now take deep inhalation and exhalation 5 times through the right nostril.
    • As you breathe in and out, be aware of each breath.


    Make sure that you do not produce any sound while taking breaths. Repeat this exercise at least five times.

    Re: Quit Smoking

    • Decide positively that you want to quit. Try to avoid negative thoughts about how difficult it might be.
    • List all the reasons you want to quit. Every night before going to bed, repeat one of the reasons 10 times.
    • Develop strong personal reasons in addition to your health and obligations to others. For example, think of all the time you waste taking cigarette breaks, rushing out to buy a pack, hunting for a light, etc.
    • Begin to condition yourself physically: Start a modest exercise program; drink more fluids; get plenty of rest; and avoid fatigue.
    • Set a target date for quitting - perhaps a special day such as your birthday, your anniversary, or the Great American Smokeout. If you smoke heavily at work, quit during your vacation so that you're already committed to quitting when you return. Make the date sacred, and don't let anything change it. This will make it easy for you to keep track of the day you became a nonsmoker and to celebrate that date every year.
