Quitting smoking is a gift to yourself. You may have tried to quit before and it didn't work. Don't give up. Many smokers try four to five times before they succeed.
The first thing to do is line up help. Ask for support from you family and friends, join a quit-smoking class, or ask you doctor about medication.
Set a quit day. After picking a day, mark it in bold letters on a calendar.
Limit where you can smoke. Make smoking outdoors a house rule where other smokers won't tempt you as much.
Quitting smoking is hard, but with determination and education you can succeed.
