Congratulations on thinking about quitting smoking! As a smoker, you already know quitting is the right thing to do. Friends and family members have probably urged you to quit and social norms have banned you from smoking in public places. Most smokers say they want to quit, but smoking is also one of the hardest habits to break. If you have been smoking for a number of years, you may have even tried to quit. Maybe you’ve tried to quit several times.
