Remind yourself that by quitting
you may avoid serious health problems and live longer. Remember your reasons
for quitting. Maybe you want to protect your heart and your health and live
Each time you quit, you learn more about what helps and
what gets in the way. Think about why you started smoking again and about what you will do differently next time. If you tried to quit without medicines or a program,
think about trying them next time. Medicines and nicotine replacement (gum,
patches, lozenges) can double your chances of
success.1 And using medicines and counseling is even more effective. You can do it!
