Feb. 21, 2000 (San Francisco) -- Quitting smokeless tobacco is as difficult as quitting cigarettes, and the approaches are similar. Experts recommend the following steps:

  • Think of reasons why you want to quit.
  • Pick a firm quitting date within two or three weeks from now and start reducing your use.
  • Tell friends, family, teachers, and coaches you are going to quit and ask for their support.
  • Ask your doctor about using a nicotine patch or gum.
  • Find alternatives, such as sugarless gum or sunflower seeds.
  • Stay active and avoid situations where you will be tempted to use tobacco.
  • Reward yourself every few days you don't use by buying yourself a present.
