First, glad you showed up.

Now let's talk about your relationship with smoking.

Do any of these sound familiar?

I only smoke when…

Oh Sh*&.

Sounds like you're a social smoker.

No big deal? Scroll down, the reality might surprise you.

Well good.

You're in the clear, But you could help a friend.

Excuse no. 73
I only smoke when it's someone else's

Perception

Many people think the occasional cigarette can’t be that bad for you because it’s such a small amount.

Reality

But that's not the way it is. Not even close.

When it comes to heart disease, for example, one cigarette isn’t 1/20th as bad as a full pack: it’s as bad as

smoking ½ the pack.*

I know, Not what you wanted to hear, but stick with us.

Sound familiar?

Social smoking hurts more than you think

Excuse no. 14
I only smoke when I'm with friends

Perception

Many people think smoking hookah is less harmful than smoking cigarettes.

Reality

When in actuality

1 hr of hookah = 100 cigarettes.
Excuse no. 64
I only smoke when It's the weekend

Perception

Vaping's a harmless alternative to smoking, right?

Reality

Wrong. Vapor contains toxic chemicals that could lead to

Asthma and respiratory disease.*

Your health is, of course,
the main problem with tobacco.

But there are countless other reasons to be glad you're done for good.

Your submission has been entered.

Fact is, you don't actually want to be an addict.

Tobacco companies tug at your attention, more and more, until what you have is an addiction. And what you give up is your free will.

Just Stop

Clicking this button is a small action. In fact, no one will even know you did. Except you.

I'm still not convinced

Wise choice

The best thing you can do is stop before you have to quit.

  1. What to do with your hands at a party?

    Collect the empties and dump them in the recycling. Busying yourself is a great way to get past a craving. Plus, your host will love you for it.

  2. Send a text.

    You probably have at least one friend who knows you’re trying to stop. Reaching out in moments of weakness will keep you on track.

  3. Go for a walk.

    You’d be surprised at how effective a scene change can be. Even a short walk around the block can reset your resolve.

  4. Hang out with the nonsmokers.

    Take the foolproof route and choose situations where you’ll be less likely to smoke.

  5. Carry a fresh pack of gum.

    As a sometimes-smoker, you’re not at the Nicorette stage, so, any gum could get you through a craving.
