Delay smoking by delaying the first cigarette smoking for 2 hours each day, but the number of cigarettes smoked is not counted. For example, if an addict is accustomed to smoking the first cigarette at 7 am, then the next day he starts smoking at 9 am, then the day after tomorrow starts smoking at 11 noon. So in this way, smoking can stop in 7 days. Reduce. Addicts gradually reduce the number of cigarettes smoked each day. If the addict usually smokes 24 cigarettes a day, reduce 2 to 4 cigarettes every day. Actually the mechanism of fried food does not trigger a person to smoke.
