Quitting Out From Smoking

Are you hooked on cigarettes? I know many are still having a hard time kicking the habit but the experts say there are tips that help:

Many teens try to keep smoking hidden from their families. But letting friends and relatives know that you're trying to quit is an essential step to address the addiction.

There are tobacco-cessation programs that can help almost double the likelihood that young smokers will successfully quit. Examples are the ALA Helpline at (800) LUNG-USA or N-O-T (

Family and friends help provide encouragement bit if you need extra aid and advice to take with you wherever you go, you can join a support group on Facebook or download a quit-smoking app on your phone.

Consider the cash you would save if you quit. According to the Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids, the average price for a pack of smokes is about $5.51-which is almost $300 a year for somebody who smokes a pack per week.

Take note that it's never too late to quit. In other words, the sooner you quit the better. :)
