Quit smoking Spain

How to stop smoking in Spain and how to quit smoking in Barcelona.

Spain can be a challenging place to stop smoking because there seem to be more people smoking here than in many European countries. Perhaps that is the good weather that which means you see more people smoking outside than in colder climates. Also it is still legal to smoke on cafe and restaurant terraces in Spain and finally cigarettes are still cheaper than in many other European countries. Spain only recently banned smoking inside bars and restaurants and started to raise cigarette prices. Less than 10 years ago it was common to see people smoking in airports and public places even though smoking was not permitted there. So although Spain is catching up with modern attitudes to smoking, there is still a way to go and many young people in Spain still smoke.

So if you want to quit smoking in Spain it can be a challenge and we recommend that you get help to stop smoking. If you are an English speaker then there many good options to get help to stop smoking in Spain in Englsh including several effective methods like the new Quit Smoking book  called Stepbac® and from 2017 you can sign up forStepbac® intensive 5 hour quit smoking seminars in Barcelona - and in other cities in Spain on request.

Here are our top tips about how to stop smoking in Spain:

Stop Smoking Tip 1

Get help. Don’t stop smoking by yourself. Modern research now proves that willpower alone is a not good way or a long term way to stop smoking. It is not even the easiest way. Smoking is a very addictive habit and you should seek help in the form of therapy or courses to help you stop smoking in Spain

Stop Smoking Tip 2 

Stop completely rather than trying to gradually cut down smoking. A full stop is better than cutting down. Modern research shows that cutting down makes stop smoking more painful and you are more likely to start smoking more if you don’t stop completely. Of course smoking 2 cigarettes a day is better than smoking 20 a day, but don’t fool yourself into thinking you have stopped. Cutting back is a painful process that will often only be temporary and cause suffering and irritation throughout the day as you pine for the next cigarette. Stopping smoking should be all out. But as we said in Tip 1 – get help to stop smoking in Spain. It’s not easy by yourself, but when you know what and how to stop smoking you will find it much easier.

Stop Smoking Tip 3 

Don’t use nicotine replacement methods like gum or patches to stop smoking. That might work in the very short term, but you will still have the nicotine cravings which mean you are more likely to light a cigarette in the future. Nicotine is what keeps you addicted to smoking, so taking nicotine in another way, like in gum, is like putting sugar in coffee instead of tea. It’s the same drug. There are methods to stop smoking without staying hooked on Nicotine.

If you are a smoker and want to stop, why not stop smoking in Spain when you visit Barcelona?
