Whether you're dealing with a challenge today or preparing for tomorrow, a support system will get you through tough times—and inspire you to reach your quit goals.
Family, friends, Mayo experts, and a supportive EX Community can help you on your way.
Let's figure out who's in your corner.
When you're ready, set your quit date. This will give you the time you need to get ready—and give you something to work toward.
To start building your support system, identify people in your life who give you strength. This also means thinking about people you may want to avoid, because they aren't supporting your quitting goals.
Family and friends are an important part of your support system, but sometimes it's hard to talk to people about your plan to quit tobacco. We've got advice for navigating these conversations.
Find answers and genuine advice from other real tobacco users and ex-smokers. No one knows what you're going through like people who have gone through it themselves.
To help you stay quit, learn your warning signs and avoid risky situations. Remember to stay positive and focus on your quit plan. You've got this—and we're not going anywhere.
