Quit Smoking & Vaping

You are ready to quit. Now what? 

Quitting is the single best thing you can do for your health, but it isn't easy. In fact, it takes most people many tries before they are successful and quit for good. Nicotine is an addictive substance and keeps people smoking and vaping even when they want to quit. Be patient with yourself, but also be resolved to succeed. Remember your reasons for quitting. 

When you quit, you will:

  • Breathe easier 
  • Decrease your risk of lung disease
  • Have more money to spend on other things
  • Become a healthy role model for others
  • Feel proud that you did it

Even though you may desperately want to quit, you are more likely to succeed if you are prepared.  

Take these steps:

  • Write down your reasons for quitting, pick a quit day, and ask your family and friends for support.
  • Get ready for your quit day and prepare for success with a Quit Plan.
  • Call 1-800-QUIT-NOW (1-800-784-8669) or visit www.QuitNowNH.org for free self-help materials and one-on-one private advice over the phone.  
  • Ask your health care provider about medications to help you quit, such as nicotine patches, nicotine gum, or other products approved for smoking cessation.
  • Get Quit Tips for helpful ways to avoid triggers and prepare for when cravings hit.
  • Reward yourself and don't give up. You can do it!
