Article 1: 5 Steps For Finally Quitting Smoking For Good

Don't use weight gain as an excuse to continue smoking. While it is true that some individuals gain weight when they quit, it doesn't mean that you will. Make healthy eating choices when you're feeling hungry because you aren't smoking and the weight won't pile on. Even if you do gain a few pounds, remember that it is much healthier than continuing to smoke.

Do not quit alone. Tell everyone you are around regularly that you are trying to quit smoking. They can provide support and encouragement and it can make a huge difference. You might also consider a support group or a counselor. Behavior therapy can help you come up with and stick to strategies that will help you quit smoking.
