Quit Tips from the Tobacco Quitline

Quick thoughts, ideas and tips that have helped other ex-smokers quit. If they can do it, so can you!

  • Plan something enjoyable to do every day that does not include tobacco.

  • Stop and ask yourself, "Do I really want this cigarette right now?"

  • Clean out your car. Empty your ashtray. Add a special place for your new crunchy snacks to help you fight the urge to smoke.

  • Give away all your ashtrays.

  • Watch people who don't use tobacco. Borrow some ideas from them.

  • Reward yourself. Consider putting aside the money that you would have spent buying cigarettes and treat yourself to something you really want.

  • Make a commitment to having a tobacco-free home. Add a sign "Mahalo for not smoking" right at the front door and thank yourself every time you see it!

  • Drink lots of water and flush out those toxins.
