Ready to quit banner

We encourage all smokers to quit for the multiple benefits. Food will taste better; aromas will smell better
(so will your clothes). You’ll stop burning holes in your upholstery and shirts. You’ll suddenly have more
energy and be less likely to get winded from climbing a single fleet of stairs. You won’t have to run
outside for a nicotine fix after dinner or white-knuckle it on an airplane.

#SmokingInThePast

Whether a SEE has sent you in the direction of quitting completely or you’re aiming to wane yourself off
traditional cigarettes, it helps to remember that quitting is a process most likely to be successful
with personalized planning, motivation, methods and support.

Planning

Pick a quit date – and stick to it. Circle it in red on your calendar. Announce your goal to the
world, or at least your family, friends and coworkers. Get rid of all cigarettes, ashtrays and
traces of the smoking habit before the date arrives.

Deep-cleaning your car, carpets and other smoke-infused items can remind you fresh and clean
your
life (and lungs) can be.

You’ll additionally want to:

  • Identify smoking triggers so you can avoid them or opt for a different activity to fill
    in
    for smoking. Triggers can include feeling anxious or stressed, driving or talking on the
    phone, or simply seeing other people smoke.
  • Be prepared to wait out cravings. Try keeping your hands and mouth busy with breathing
    exercises. Make a list of tasks to do when cravings hit. Listen to soothing music,
    meditate
    or otherwise engage in relaxation activities if you start to get anxious or stressed.

Motivation

Examine the reasons you want to quit, whether they’re to feel better, smell better, save money or
stick around longer for your loved ones. Make a list of your motivators, placing the list in a
prominent place as a constant reminder.

Consider various smoking cessation methods that have worked for others. These include
acupuncture,
counseling, laser therapy and hypnosis.

Support

In addition to announcing your intentions to family, friends and coworkers, you can join a
support
program and seek out additional online, phone or in-person support from numerous sources listed
