Newfoundland and Labrador Smokers’ Helpline
Now that you’ve decided to quit, it’s time to get ready. While there’s no one right way to quit, there are definitely things you can do to help you succeed.
Have a look at your calendar and consider what day would work best as a Quit Day. Would it be easiest to quit on a weekday or a weekend? Is there a significant day coming up in the next month such as a holiday or a birthday that would make a particularly memorable Quit Day?
Remember, if you are planning to use a medication like bupropion (Zyban) or varenicline (Champix), you will need to start taking the drug approximately 2 weeks before your Quit Day. Make sure to call your doctor and make an appointment to see him so that you can get your prescription in time to meet your goal.
When you’ve chosen your Quit Day, circle it on your calendar and make a pledge to stick to it.
