Alternative Names

Information

It is hard to quit smoking if you are acting alone. Most smokers find it hard to break their ties to the smoking habit.

Smokers may have a much better chance of quitting when using a support program. Stop smoking programs are offered by hospitals, health departments, community centers, work sites, and national organizations.

The best programs combine many approaches. All smoking cessation programs need to target the fears and problems you have when quitting. They also need to provide ongoing support for staying away from tobacco.

Be wary of programs that:

TELEPHONE-BASED HELP

Telephone-based services can help you design a stop smoking program that meets your needs. These are services are easy to use. The counselors can help you avoid common mistakes. This kind of support can be as effective as face-to-face counseling.

 

Telephone programs are often available nights and weekends. Trained counselors will help you decide which stop smoking aids to use. Choices may include medicines nicotine replacement therapy, and support programs or classes. They will help you set up a support network to help you quit.

You can find out about telephone counseling smoking cessation programs from:

SUPPORT GROUPS

Let your friends, family, and coworkers know of your plan to stop smoking and your quit date. It helps for people around you to be aware of what you're going through  -- especially when you are grumpy.

You may also want to seek out other types of support, such as:

Check with your employer, health insurance plan, or health care provider about different types of support groups. Also, check the website of the American Cancer Society or American Lung Association for other resources.

STOP SMOKING PROGRAMS AND CLASSES

Stop smoking programs can also help you find a quitting method that suits your needs. They will help you be aware of problems that come up while you're trying to quit, and offer tools to cope with these problems. These programs can help you avoid making common mistakes.

Programs may either have one-on-one sessions or group counseling. Some programs offer both. Programs should be run by a counselors trained to help people quit smoking.

Programs that provide more sessions or longer sessions have a better chance of success. The American Cancer Society recommends programs with the following:

Hospitals, employers, and health insurance plans may offer this service. You can also the American Cancer Society and the American Lung Association, or your local health department to find programs.

Internet-based programs are also becoming more available. These services send you personalized reminders using e-mail, texting, or other methods.
