Develop an action plan

1. Develop an action plan

Quitting smoking isn’t a single act, but rather a journey that requires some forethought:

  • When will my ’smoking quit date be?
  • Will I stop cold turkey or will it be progressive?
  • Should I use a stop-smoking product? If so, which one?
  • Who in my immediate entourage can I ask for help?
  • How will I cope with my cravings to smoke?

Ask your pharmacist about ways to increase your chances of success.
