Great American Smokeout

Are you going to try quitting?

Great American Smokeout–Thursday, November 17

Successfully quitting tobacco is a matter of planning and commitment, not luck. Decide now on your own plan. Some options include using nicotine replacement therapy, enrolling in the Montana Tobacco Quit Line, and using self-help books and pamphlets. For the best chance at success, your plan should include one or more of these options. On your quit day, follow these suggestions:

  • Do not use tobacco – not even one puff or chew!
  • Stay active – try walking, exercising, or doing other activities or hobbies.
  • Drink lots of water and 100% juices.
  • Start using nicotine replacement if that’s your plan.
  • Call or visit the Montana Tobacco Quit Line 1(800) QUIT-NOW.
  • Avoid situations where the urge to smoke or use tobacco is strong.
  • Limit or avoid alcohol.
  • Think about changing your routine: Use a different route to get to work. Drink tea instead of coffee. Eat breakfast in a different place or eat different foods.

 This day will be the first of many victories!

Quit like a champion – You can do it!
