Quitting Tobacco Use
Most people who are successful in quitting tobacco use do these things:
- Decide to Quit
- Set a Date
- Make a Plan to learn new skills and behaviors (why do you smoke, and what will you do instead?)
- Get Medication and use it correctly (especially if you smoke >10 cigarettes a day and/or smoke within 30 minutes of waking up in the AM)
We are here to help!
