I would love to talk with you more about your quitting smoking. And, as Tina said, knowing what part of the country you live in can help us suggest resources as well. The Mayo Clinic has a Nicotine Dependency Center that has proven great results (http://www.mayoclinic.org/ndc), as well as others.
I am curious to know about your:
- Previous attempts to quit: what you tried, how long you were successful
- Love/hate relationship with smoking. Why do you smoke (what do you like about smoking?), and why do you want to quit (what do you dislike about smoking?)
- Available support and resources: friends and family who want to quit smoking (quit buddy) and/or who can help you quit. Financially, there are many low cost alternatives, and free resources, including national hotlines and counselors to help you in your journey to become a former smoker!
As an added motivator, the American Cancer Society's Great American Smokeout is just over a month away in November, and the time you take now to PREPARE for cutting down or quitting can help you choose this date as a quit date. There is a LOT of support surrounding this national event that you can take advantage of:
