How to Quit
It’s not easy to quit. But it’s worth it. Don’t try to quit cold turkey and don’t try to quit alone. Your best chances of quitting are combining cessation support such as phone or in-person counseling or text-message based support and nicotine replacement therapies to beat the cravings.
