    Take Action
    Try the following to kick the habit. Doctor-supervised treatment is also an option.


    • Set a date for quitting. If possible, have a friend quit smoking with you.
    • Notice when and why you smoke. Try to find the things in your daily life that you often do while smoking (such as drinking your morning cup of coffee or driving a car).
    • Change your smoking routines: Keep your cigarettes in a different place. Smoke with your other hand.
    • Don't do anything else when smoking. Think about how you feel when you smoke.
    • Smoke only in certain places, such as outdoors.
    • When you want a cigarette, wait a few minutes. Try to think of something to do instead of smoking; you might chew gum or drink a glass of water.
    • Buy one pack of cigarettes at a time. Switch to a brand of cigarettes you don't like.
