Some of you are seriously contemplating quitting, but have not made a firm commitment to do as yet. Others may be ready to quit, are thinking about taking some sort of action soon, and are putting together a plan to make it work this time around. Still others may have begun to put their plans into action and have begun to quit smoking. There are probably more of you who have already quit and are working hard to stay away from tobacco for good.
No matter where you are in the tobacco cessation stage, you CAN QUIT! And remember, if you don't succeed the first time, try and try again. More than 70% smokers say they want to quit, but only about 5% succeed without help. Quitting tobacco use can be tough, but you increase your chances of success when you get help.
