It’s HARD to quit tobacco!!!

IMG_3452

Research shows that smokers are most successful in kicking the habit when they have support, such as:

 Telephone smoking-cessation hotlines
 Stop-smoking groups
 Online quit groups
 Counseling
 Nicotine replacement products
 Prescription medicine to lessen cravings
 Guide books
 Encouragement and support from friends and family members
Using 2 or more of these measures to quit smoking works better than using any one of them alone. For example, some people use a prescription medicine along with nicotine replacement. Other people may use as many as 3 or 4 of the methods listed above.
Telephone stop-smoking hotlines are an easy-to-use resource, and they are available in all 50 states.
