This article:
  • Focuses on tools that can help smokers quit once and for all.
    • A quit plan is a key element in successful quit attempts, and this article tells smokers how to get started on their own plan.
    • Talking with a health care provider increases a smoker’s chances of quitting for good, so the article encourages smokers to reach out to their doctors, pharmacists, or other health care providers for help.
    • Medications can relieve physical discomfort from nicotine withdrawal and help with cravings. The article discusses how medications, along with counseling or coaching, boost smokers’ chances for success.
  • Shares stories from two of CDC’s Tips From Former Smokers campaign participants.
    • In the video “Tiffany’s Decision,” Tiffany, a former smoker, describes events that led her to quit smoking.
    • The video "Smoking and Diabetes" features Bill, a former smoker who lived with complications from diabetes and who advised smokers to list the things they are willing to give up if they continue smoking.
