Tips to Help You Quit

  • Believe you can quit – You can be successful in quitting. It may take you several tries before you successfully quit. It’s ok. Just believe you can do it!
  • Write down why you want to quit – Are you quitting for your loved one, for your health, to set a good example for your children, or to protect your family from breathing secondhand tobacco smoke or aerosol from e-cigarettes?
  • Set a quit date – Make a commitment to quit. Think about quitting on a special day, such as on your birthday, anniversary, wedding, New Year’s Day, etc.
  • Throw away all tobacco products and vapes, and remove anything that reminds you of smoking or vaping. When you don’t have these triggers around you, you’re more likely to stay away from smoking and vaping.

Get help if you want it – TUPP has free classes to help you quit by calling 1-866-NEW-LUNG (1-866-639-5864) or visiting the New Lung website.
