GET READY TO QUIT
Are you wondering the best way to quit smoking, e-cigarettes or other tobacco? Your chances of quitting are much better when you have a customized quit plan. This section will walk you through how to get on the path to a tailored quit plan and a successful quit.
Prepare to Quit
Some simple things you can do ahead of time—even right now!—to help increase your chances of success include:
What about E-Cigarettes?
E-cigarettes are not approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) as an aid to quit smoking. E-cigarettes and other electronic nicotine delivery systems (ENDS), including personal vaporizers, vape pens, e-cigars, e-hookah and vaping devices, may expose users to some of the same toxic chemicals found in combustible cigarette smoke.
Everyone who quits tobacco does so for a reason. For some people, it’s not wanting to feel left out when all of their friends have quit. For others, it’s for health or family or because of the rising cost of tobacco. What’s your reason?
Write down your reasons to quit cigarettes, e-cigarettes or other tobacco products.
Keep your list with you and place a copy on your refrigerator or front door. When the urge to use tobacco hits, your list of reasons to quit will help your craving pass and remind you of the great choice you’ve made.
