Why is Ramadan a good time to quit?

Published on 11 June, 2015

This year Ramadan takes place from June 18th to July 16th. Over this four week period practicing Muslims observe a fasting period during the daylight hours. As well as food, smoking also breaks fast.

Smokers who decide to quit during Ramadan are often successful in their efforts. This is due to the willpower that is needed during the fast for four weeks, which can change your mind-set towards the addiction. If you can stay quit throughout the daylight hours - you know you can learn to live without cigarettes at all.
