In brief: Tips for quitting

Quitting is very difficult; it may take several attempts before you give up the habit for good.
Success is increased if you have support and work with your health care providers. Research shows that a combination of nicotine replacement therapy or other FDA approved smoking cessation medication AND counseling is most effective as it helps you stay on track and overcome obstacles. Best wishes
