My Top 5 Steps To Help Your Friend Quit Smoking

1.Some of the most difficult things you have done in your life and

realize that you have the guts and determination to quit

smoking. It's up to you.

2. After reading this list, sit down and write your own list,

customized to your personality and way of doing things. Create

you own plan for quitting.

3. Write down why you want to quit (the stop smoking benefits):

live longer, feel better, for your family, save money, smell

better, find a mate more easily, etc. You know what's bad about

smoking and you know what you'll get by quitting. Put it on

paper and read it daily.

4. Ask your family and friends to support your decision to quit.

Ask them to be completely supportive and non-judgmental. Let

them know ahead of time that you will probably be irritable and

even irrational while you withdraw from your smoking habit.

5. Set a quit date. Decide what day you will extinguish your

cigarettes forever. Write it down. Plan for it. Prepare your

mind for the "first day of the rest of your life". You might

even hold a small ceremony when you smoke you last cigarette, or

on the morning of the quit date.

Quitting smoking can reduce your risk of these problems. The earlier you quit, the greater the health benefit.
