When you quit, you will:
- Be healthier.
- Have more energy.
- Breathe easier.
Also, the people you live with will be healthier.
To be a successful quitter, you need to make a plan. Set a quit date and stick to it.
You can buy medicine, like nicotine gum, at the drugstore or visit your doctor to get a prescription for medicine to help you quit.
You can get help. Ask family, friends, and coworkers for support. Call the National Quitline at 1-800-QUITNOW (784-8669) or select www.smokefree.gov for help.
You can change your behaviors. When you get the urge to smoke, take a walk or talk to someone.
Don’t quit quitting. Many people try several times before they finally quit. Don’t give up.
