Thinking About Quitting?

Planning to Quit

  • Making the decision to quit smoking is an important step to improving your health.
  • Take the time to plan your quit attempt!
  • Make a list of your reasons for smoking AND quitting.
  • Record how many, and when you smoke each cigarette and consider which ones would be easier to eliminate from your daily routine.
  • Talk to your doctor or pharmacist about using stop-smoking medications. Used with counselling, these can increase your chances of success.
  • Set a quit date.
  • Find a non-smoking buddy to help you.
  • Anticipate challenges and think of ways to overcome cravings.
  • Quitting is not easy! If at first you don’t succeed, try again. Each attempt is an important step towards becoming smoke-free!
