(HealthDay News) -- Quitting smoking is tough, but relying on
friends and family can help you get through the challenges.
The American Cancer Society offers this advice:
- Let friends and family know that you're trying to quit.
- Socialize with those who support you in quitting, preferably
those who don't smoke or who are ex-smokers.
- Explain what you need from loved ones, whether it's being
patient, being available for phone calls or adhering to smoke-free
- Develop a good understanding of how each loved one can help you
