If you’ve tried to quit smoking on your own, you know how hard it can be, because nicotine is extremely addictive. Studies show you have a better chance of success if you have help.
Citizens Memorial Hospital offers some suggestions for support:
Committing to the Process
Most people try to quit smoking several times before they kick the habit for good, so don’t beat yourself up if you start smoking again. Instead, turn the relapse into a rebound by learning from your mistake.
Think about what happened right before you started smoking again, identify the triggers or trouble spots you ran into, and make a new stop-smoking plan that eliminates them.
