•Think of some reasons to quit tobacco. It could be to improve your health, save some money or make your family proud.
•Prepare to quit by creating a quit plan and pick a quit date. Research the different programs, resources and medications available to you and decide which ones you will use when you quit.
•Talk to your health care provider for advice on quitting. For local help and where to find resources, reach out to the Schofield Barracks Army Wellness Center at (808) 655-1866.
