Your New Year’s resolution for 2017 may be to stop smoking. Have you thought of going on a ‘stop smoking retreat’ to kick start your resolution? Are you one of those people whose lives revolve around their next cigarette? A retreat will remove the usual work stress and usual triggers that get you reading for a cigarette.
A healthy retreat will help you to form new habits as you relax in new surroundings. As you adopt new routines as part of your holiday so the psychological link between smoking and particular behaviour will be broken. A successful stop smoking retreat will have plenty of activities to distract you and keep you occupied. Then you won’t have so much unstructured time and space to think about smoking.
Consider choosing a retreat with expert medical consultations available. These retreats will have appropriate specialist treatments such as acupuncture, dental cleaning and oxygenation therapy. Psychotherapy and nutritional advice will also be available if needed and could be a useful part of your campaign.
PS It is less easy to carry a packet of cigarettes in your shorts or swimming gear!
