Health Tip: When You Want to Quit Smoking

(HealthDay News) -- Quitting smoking is tough, but relying on friends and family can help you get through the challenges.

The American Cancer Society offers this advice:

  • Let friends and family know that you're trying to quit.

  • Socialize with those who support you in quitting, preferably those who don't smoke or who are ex-smokers.

  • Explain what you need from loved ones, whether it's being patient, being available for phone calls or adhering to smoke-free environments.

  • Develop a good understanding of how each loved one can help you quit.
