Audio PSA: You Can Quit Smoking

Narrator: If you smoke and want to quit, the good news is it CAN be done. Here are some tips to help you get prepared and increase your chances of success. First, set a date for when you’ll quit smoking. Second, tell your family, friends and coworkers when you plan to quit and ask them to support your decision. Next, talk with your doctor about choosing medicines for you to help you resist the urge to smoke. There are a number of choices, but all medicines work best when they’re combined with counseling to help you quit. Clean all your clothes, house and car to get rid of cigarette odor. Change your routine to lower your urge to smoke. Then on your quit day throw away your cigarettes and decide what you’ll do with the money you won’t be spending on cigarettes. For a free brochure with other tips for quitting smoking, call 1-800-358-9295 and ask for Help for Smokers and Other Tobacco Users. That’s 1-800-358-9295. You CAN quit for good. A message from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
