Planning to Quit Smoking

Quitting smoking can be challenging, but having a plan may help. Before you begin to take CHANTIX, follow these 3 simple steps to help yourself get started in the right direction on the road to quitting.

  1. Choose a date to quit smoking

  2. Your Quit Date is the day you stop smoking completely. Do your best to stick to it. It should be on your 8th day of taking CHANTIX.

  3. Let others know you're quitting smoking

  4. Some people choose not to tell others that they're quitting smoking. They're afraid that they will be embarrassed if they don't succeed. But think about it. Isn't that planning for failure? You don't have to tell everyone that you're quitting, but letting a few friends and family members know may help. They may be able to provide you with encouragement when you need it most.
