Quit Smoking with Confidence

How Confident Are You?

If you feel nervous about quitting-and most people do-don't worry.  It's normal. Being a little nervous can actually help you to take action. If you want to have more confidence, read on. 

Set small goals that you can do.

Small goals are easier to reach than one big goal. For example, try quitting for just one day, as practice. 

Say things like, “I can do it.”

What do you say about quitting? Do you say, "I can't do it"? If so, try saying, "I can quit. My reasons are strong. I can do it."

Get information.

Try to get as much information as you can about quitting. Talk with others who've quit. How did they do it?
  • Did they go cold turkey or use a quitting aid?
  • Did they talk with a counselor or go to a group?
  • How did they stay quit?

The same kind of things could work for you.

Planning can make you more confident.

Not having confidence keeps many smokers from even trying to quit. If your confidence is low, you can change it by making a good plan

Remember this.

Confidence helps, but it's not the only thing you need. You can build your confidence by setting smaller goals, being positive, and getting more information about how to quit smoking.
