Tips When Preparing to Stop

  • Avoid negative thoughts on how difficult it may be.

  • Repeat daily at least one or two of your reasons for quitting.

  • Begin to condition yourself physically; start a modest exercise program, drink plenty of water, get plenty of rest, avoid fatigue.

Learn what to Expect

  • Have realistic expectations- stopping isn’t easy, but it’s not impossible either.

  • Ask your spouse or friend to stop with you.

  • Understand withdrawal symptoms are temporary and non-life threatening. Remember that continued smoking cigarettes are much more dangerous to your body than withdrawal symptoms.

  • Know that relapses will occur. Start practicing different responses now.

Involve Someone Else

  • Tell family and friends that you are quitting. Most will be supportive of you.

Practice going without Cigarettes

  • Stop carrying cigarettes with you. Do not keep a pack of cigarettes handy in case of emergency.

  • Don’t empty your ashtrays: Look at the accumulation of butts and ashes. The sight and smell may be unpleasant.
