Quit Day and Beyond

Quit Day and Beyond

Quit Day is the day you decide in advance you will quit smoking for good. Some people like to choose a day with special meaning to them, like a birthday, anniversary, or holiday. Others will simply choose a day at random. In any case, when you mark the day on your calendar and commit to quitting at that time, you commit to never smoking again.

When deciding on a quit day, make it as easy on yourself as possible. For example, if you usually smoke at work, pick a day during the weekend to quit so you won’t be as tempted. However you decide to pick your Quit Day, just be sure that you have your quit day checklist ready and that you are prepared mentally for the challenge ahead. With this planning in place, the support of your family and friends, and some determination on your part, you are well on your way to achieving a tobacco-free life.
