Having a plan makes it easier to quit. Take time to set goals for yourself. Think ahead about how you’ll handle the challenges of quitting and celebrate the successes. Use this guide to help make a plan that’s right for you.
Start by picking a date to stop smoking: your quit date. This is the day you will quit smoking completely. A date two to four weeks away from today will work well.
If you’ve tried to quit before, use your past experience to think about what helped you quit the first time and what you’ll do differently this time.
