Five Feasible Solutions for How To Quit Smoking*
Despite increased awareness of the risks of smoking, a recent study revealed that almost 20% of adult employees smoke during work hours. Why do they smoke? Nicotine can produce a calming or pleasant effect that many claim, “calm the nerves.” Others may say that smoking helps to keep them awake during work. No matter the justifications for smoking, research proves that nicotine, whether absorbed through smoking or vaping, is harmful to the body. By helping employees find tools and techniques on how to quit smoking, employers can help promote improved health in the workplace, reduce expensive medical costs, and more.
Five Ways to Educate and Empower Employees on How To Quit Smoking
Many people, employers included, are curious about the most successful way to stop smoking. Like many things, there really isn’t one win-all solution. At Wellworks For You, we recognize that the best smoking cessation program for the workplace needs to be one that addresses the specific needs of each individual.
As an employer, offering a smoking cessation program for the workplace is a wonderful way to demonstrate support for employee wellness, reduce illness and modifiable chronic diseases, and can end up saving money on expensive health premiums and healthcare costs.
Ready to help learn about how to quit smoking? Here are a few ways to help employees find their personal method toward quitting vaping and smoking:
- Resources and Reliability
To add a level of transparency and authenticity, offering employees personal testimonials of success stories about quitting smoking can be a source of inspiration and encouragement. In addition to shared real-life experiences, providing the aid of a personal health coach who specializes in smoking cessation provides an accountable, reliable resource for employees seeking to kick a nicotine habit.
- Power in Numbers
Working as a group has a tremendous impact toward reaching wellness goals. A group setting invokes camaraderie among coworkers joined in the common endeavor to quit smoking.
- Individual Challenges
Some personality types are well-suited to solo challenges. In these instances, a smoking cessation program can be customized on a personal level. Rewards when particular milestones have been accomplished are often positive and successful motivators for individual-minded employees on the pathway to quit smoking.
Medication may be helpful in certain scenarios based on the longevity and amount of nicotine used by certain employees. Those who have smoked large quantities of cigarettes for a number of years may potentially benefit from aids to stop smoking, such as nicotine replacement, or other types of supplements or medication designed to reduce cravings.
- Behavioral Therapy
Certain therapeutic modalities, such as cognitive behavior therapy, has been shown to be effective in helping individuals to stop smoking.
Quitting Smoking Saves More than the Life of The Smoker
While eliminating nicotine helps reduce the likelihood for developing a preventable chronic disease and adds benefits such as improvement in teeth, gums, and lung health, when a nicotine user ceases to smoke, even more advantages occur, including:
- Lower chance of bad breath
- Elimination of second-hand smoke around coworkers
- Increase in pocket change
- Stronger immune system
- Better cardiovascular health
