What's the first step I should take to quit smoking?

ANSWER

You should set a quit date -- the day when you will quit smoking and start to break free of your tobacco addiction.

Then, consider visiting your doctor before the quit date. She can give you practical advice and let you know if any tobacco replacement or medication would help.
