Health Tip: Choose Your Day to Quit Smoking

Health Tip: Choose Your Day to Quit Smoking

12/27/11

(HealthDay News) -- Your desire to stop smoking is a major decision, and shouldn't be taken lightly.

The Cleveland Clinic offers some suggestions:

  • Set your quit date a few weeks in advance. Slowly cut down and create a plan for quitting. Avoid places where you once liked to smoke.
  • The day you quit, keep yourself busy. Toss out all your cigarettes.
  • Understand that nicotine replacements (such as gum or a patch) can help you quit, but you probably will still have to fight the urge to smoke.
  • Quit forever, and don't allow yourself an occasional cigarette.
  • Tell yourself that you cannot give in and smoke.
  • Seek help, such as a smoking cessation program, if you need it.
