Quitting Tobacco Use

Most people who are successful in quitting tobacco use do these things:

  1. Decide to Quit
  2. Set a Date
  3. Make a Plan to learn new skills and behaviors (why do you smoke, and what will you do instead?)
  4. Get Medication and use it correctly (especially if you smoke >10 cigarettes a day and/or smoke within 30 minutes of waking up in the AM)

We are here to help!

  • Pick up a Tobacco Quit Kit at the Wellness Center, Wayne Hall, 2nd Floor. The Kit contains a booklet that will guide you through the cessation process, along with candy, gum and "fidgets".
