"
COMMIT YOURSELF TO PICKING A QUIT-DATE, GIVE YOURSELF A FEW WEEKS TO PREPARE, AND TREAT IT WITH THE SAME LEVEL OF IMPORTANCE AS OTHER LIFE-CHANGING EVENTS.  IN ADDITION, GETTING SUPPORT FROM PEOPLE WHO'VE BEEN IN YOUR SHOES--OR A TRAINED COACH OR COUNSELOR--CAN HELP MOTIVATE YOU.  IDENTIFYING THE TRIGGERS THAT MAKE YOU WANT TO LIGHT-UP IS ALSO AN IMPORTANT STEP--WHICH IS WHY CREATING DISTRACTIONS OR SUBSTITUTES CAN HELP YOU OVERCOME YOUR CRAVINGS.  AND, REMEMBER THAT YOU'LL BE SAVING MONEY--STARTING WITH YOUR FIRST DAY OF BEING TOBACCO-FREE.  FINALLY, REMINDING YOURSELF EXACTLY WHY YOU'RE QUITTING SMOKING CAN HELP KEEP YOU ON TRACK."
