Many people have quit smoking for good, and you can too. It’s okay if you’re not ready to quit smoking today. Quitting is hard, but looking at resources is a great place to start. CHPW can connect you to resources and support to help you along the way.

Many benefits of quitting smoking

Smoking damages your lungs and other organs in your body, can negatively affect your lifespan, and lead to serious health consequences.

If you suffer from a chronic medical condition, smoking can make your condition worse or make it hard to manage your symptoms. Quitting can make a big difference to your health.

Maybe you want to be a good role model for your family, or you want to save money. There are a lot of benefits to quitting smoking, so focus on the ones that are most motivating to you.

How can I quit smoking?

Make a plan.

Talk with your doctor about how to quit smoking, and make a plan together.

Creating a plan is a great way to keep yourself on track and successfully quit smoking for good. A thorough plan accounts for things that trigger cravings, your schedule, how active you are, your cultural background, and your other medical needs.

Keep your goal in mind.

When you try to quit smoking, there will be cravings and triggers along the way. Ask yourself these questions to help stay on track:

  • What do I dislike about smoking?
  • What do I miss out on when I smoke?
  • How is smoking affecting my health?
  • What will happen to me and my family if I keep smoking?
  • How will my life get better when I quit?

When you experience cravings, keeping your long-term goals in mind can help.
